Google’s Double Delight for India: Pixel 8 Series and Pixel Watch 2

Google has shared not one but two good news for consumers in India this week. The company officially shared the teaser for the Pixel 8 series launch in the country, and now it has also given us a positive news on the launch of Pixel Watch 2 in India. That’s right, the second-gen Pixel Watch will be the first Pixel smartwatch to launch in the country.

The official teaser here not only gives a glimpse into the Pixel Watch 2 but also gives us the launch date for the smartwatch in India, and where it will be available.

Google Pixel Watch 2 India Launch Date And Availability

Google Pixel Watch 2 will be globally unveiled at the Pixel 8 series launch event in New York City on October 4. And the Google India teaser suggests that Pixel Watch 2 will be unveiled for the Indian consumers on October 5, which is likely to be midnight in Indian time.

“Worth every minute of the wait. Meet the all-new #PixelWatch 2 on 5th October. Available exclusively on Flipkart.”

Google continues to rely on Flipkart as its exclusive partner for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro phones. The Pixel Watch 2 will also be available through the platform in the country.

Google Pixel Watch 2 Specifications

The Pixel Watch 2 is expected to launch in both Wi-Fi and LTE variants. The new Pixel Watch is likely to use the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 chip which should provide longer battery life compared to the first-gen Pixel Watch.

Google could go with a 1.2-inch OLED display this time around and support ultrawide-band (UWB) which provides improved connectivity for the wearable. But all the bets on the Pixel Watch 2 will be thrust on the Wear OS 4.0 version based on Android 13. The new version should deliver better battery life and a host of features that makes the Android smartwatch an appealing option.

Google will hopefully have the Pixel Watch 2 priced in the sub-Rs 30,000 segment, giving the brand a chance to compete with Samsung Galaxy Watch series and Apple Watch Series.
