Google Pixel Watch’s internals may not be as underpowered as previously thought, according to a new report cited by 9to5Google. The Exynos 9110, a four-year-old chipset, was previously leaked as being used in the wearable.
A second chipset will reportedly be used by the Pixel Watch, as reported by 9to5Google (as an example, the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ does something similar).
Although the co-full processor’s capabilities have yet to be confirmed, certain tasks like managing the always-on display and ensuring that health and fitness statistics are continuously tracked could potentially be handled by this co-processor.
The more RAM, the better.
Those upgraded internals should alleviate some of the concerns expressed when the Exynos 9110 news broke, ensuring a smooth user experience and faster performance. We’re talking about Google’s flagship wearable here, which has been eagerly anticipated for some time.
In addition, the smartwatch is rumoured to have an impressive 32GB of internal storage, which compares favourably to other devices. ECG functionality, blood oxygen monitoring, and heart rate sensing are all expected as well.
Analysis: the positives of working with Fitbit and Samsung
There are still a lot of questions about the Pixel Watch, even though it has been confirmed as an official product by Google. At Google IO 2022, the company provided a few tidbits of information, but many questions remain.
So, we can rest assured that the smartwatch will be fully compatible with Google’s services. After Google acquired Fitbit, some of Fitbit’s sensor-accuracy expertise will be incorporated into the Pixel Watch.
The Pixel Watch is also benefiting from Google’s partnership with Samsung, as the chipset design appears to be closing in on that of Samsung’s Exynos chipsets, improving efficiency and performance even further.
To ensure the success of this product, Google has wisely relied on Fitbit and Samsung, two companies with a wealth of experience in this field. Until then, we’ll have to see what happens.
