Google is hosting the “Made by Google” event on October 4 to unveil the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Watch 2. Google recently confirmed the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro would be launched in India a day after their unveiling, and now, the brand has announced it will also launch the Pixel Watch 2 in India on October 5, which, like the Pixel 8 duo, will be sold exclusively through Flipkart.
That’s good news for the Pixel Watch fans in India since Google didn’t launch the original Pixel Watch in the world’s largest smartwatch market. But whether or not Google will expand the availability of its smartwatch to other countries as well this year remains to be seen.
Worth every minute of the wait 🤍

Google showed us the Pixel Watch 2’s design while confirming IP68 rating, heart rate monitoring, and SpO2 sensor for blood oxygen level measurement, but didn’t detail its specs sheet.
However, rumors claim the second-gen Pixel Watch will come with the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC, 1.2″ OLED of 384×384-pixel resolution, Android 13-based Wear OS 4, and a 306 mAh battery.
The Google Pixel Watch 2 is also said to come with ultra-wideband (UWB), which could allow it to be used for car unlocking using Digital Car Key, precise device finding, and seamless media playback transfer to a docked Pixel Tablet or a future UWB-enabled Nest speaker.
