Google has yet to unveil its highly anticipated Pixel Watch. That doesn’t stop the product from being leaked extensively, with renders confirming its design, or the name being trademarked confirmed, but nothing as specific as the latest leak.

Like an echo of the famous story of the iPhone 4 forgotten in a bar, a restaurant owner in the United States got his hands on a prototype of Google Pixel Watch abandoned by a customer. A friend of his, a loyal reader of the Android Central site, identified the product and sent some pictures. Since then, the Internet user in question has taken the floor on Reddit to reveal all the details on the Google watch, before Google reveals them.

Round design and Fitbit inspiration

Unfortunately, the device obviously did not come with a charger, and the device had a dead battery. Result, impossible to turn it on beyond a Google logo at boot. Internet user tagtech414 indicated that he had tested two Qi chargers and a Power Share charger from Samsung as well as a Google Pixel 6, without success.

We can still learn a lot about the device thanks to the photos and observations of the Internet user. In particular, we have the right to a comparative photo of the watch with an Apple Watch and a Samsung Galaxy Watch. These photos confirm the round design of the Google watch.

Another photo reveals the series of sensors on the back of the watch. The component seems to be similar to the one used by Fitbit on the Fitbit Charge 5. Remember that Google bought Fitbit in 2021 to work on its connected object projects.

This leaves speculation that the Google Pixel Watch might be able to measure VO2max, SpO2, and ECG.

We also learn that the Google Pixel Watch measures 40 mm in diameter and 14 mm thick, and that its weight remains limited to 36 g. It is therefore the thickness of the product that particularly impresses, compared to the 9.8 mm of the Galaxy Watch 4 or the 10.7 mm of the Apple Watch Series 7. We are still talking about a good third of extra thickness.

The Google Pixel Watch is expected to be officially unveiled at Google I/O which takes place on May 11-12, 2022.
