New images have emerged showing the next Google Pixel Watch fitted to someone’s wrist, giving us the best look at the new smartwatch yet.
Reddit user tagtech414 had previously provided pre-launch images of Google’s next wearable to the web, but only in strapless form. These latest shots show the watch snug around a wrist, as well as off the wrist from different angles.
It doesn’t look like the Google Watch in the photo has been started yet, which leaves us to focus on how the watch looks and how comfortable it is to wear.
We see that distinctive circular form factor with a curved display, along with the Pixel Watch strap. The leaker claims that the latter is made of “soft silicone with good flex”, and that it “doesn’t seem to show fingerprints/oil too badly”.
They also describe the Pixel Watch as “the most comfortable watch I’ve ever worn”, and that compared to the Samsung Galaxy Watch it “seems not even to be there”. One standout – or rather not – is that digital crown, which apparently doesn’t stick in your hand when you bend your wrist.
Google seems to have lifted this crown quite far from the wrist with a prominent curved back, which we can see in some of these images.
The Google Pixel Watch has been rumored for a few years now, but it should finally see the light of day in the next few weeks. Google I/O is set to take place on May 11-12, when we expect to see the announced wearable.
