Wear OS formerly known as Android Wear has been around for about four years. Since its existence, Google itself has not released a hardware for the wearable operating system. That may be changing this year.
Rumor has it that Google will announce a Pixel Watch alongside the 3rd generation Pixel phones later this year. The info comes from popular leaker @evleaks who said he was informed by a reliable source.
In the tweet, he also mentions a second-generation Pixel Buds. Quite a number of people may not be excited about this since the original Pixel Buds received negative reviews for build-quality and design. Nevertheless, we hope all the issues plaguing the original have been fixed.
The Pixel Watch is one device to look forward to later this year. Wear OS has not succeeded as much as Apple’s own watchOS, so it will be interesting to see what Google’s hardware take is like.
There is gonna be more than one, it seems. More like three.

The news doesn’t end there. Another popular leaker @rquandt commented on the tweet and adds that there will be more than one Pixel Watch. In his words “More like three”. Now, that is awesome news but don’t get too excited.
The details are still sketchy as three variants may refer to three different sizes and not necessarily three separate watches. It may also really mean three different watches from three different partner companies – think Huawei, LG, and maybe Motorola or a watchmaker like Tag Heuer?
What do you think of a Pixel Watch? Better late than never or too late to the party? Do let us know in the comment box.
