The Tweet says, “It’s all coming together,” and asks people to “Join us live for #MadeByGoogle.” The event is happening on October 6 at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT.

Like previous Google hardware events, this latest one will be livestreamed on Google’s website. However, there will also be an in-person component in Brooklyn. Most folks will be watching from the comfort of their own home, however, and you can do so from the Events page on the Google Store website.

The teaser video for the October 6 event shows the Pixel 7, Pixel Buds Pro, and Pixel Watch. Google already launched the Pixel Buds Pro earlier this year, so this event will likely be focused on the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch.

Google confirmed the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro’s existence this past May, and the rumor mill since then has painted a pretty clear picture of what to expect. We’re looking at a similar, refined design compared to the Pixel 6 family. The iconic camera bar is sticking around for another generation, though Google is playing around with some new colors. We’re also anticipating a new Tensor 2 chipset, between 8 and 12GB of RAM, and similar camera specs. The Pixel 7 will likely have a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The Pixel 7 Pro should also have those sensors, in addition to a 48MP telephoto camera.

As excited as we are for the Pixel 7 lineup, there’s even more anticipation surrounding the Pixel Watch — Google’s first-ever smartwatch within the Pixel family. We know that the Pixel Watch will feature a round design, a rotating crown not unlike the one on the Apple Watch, and will run Google’s latest version of Wear OS with integrated Fitbit tracking. Some rumors have hinted at there being a 300mAh battery, a Samsung Exynos processor, and either 1 or 1.5GB of RAM.

Although Google’s already teased the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch, the October 6 event is where we should get confirmation of final specs, features, pricing, and availability.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) -- $220, was $249

The Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) is a marvel at this price. Easily one of the best smartwatch deals, it covers everything you could need. You gain comprehensive yet easy-to-use fitness tracking thanks to Apple's Activity Rings system and steady stream of challenges and rewards. It's fast too thanks to having the latest processor. Despite that, you still get to enjoy a two-day battery life with the watch easily comfortable to wear all day long. It lacks the ECG and blood oxygen sensors of the Series 8 along with the always-on display, but that won't be an issue for everyone. The key thing is you get an excellent smartwatch at a great price.

Apple Watch Series 9: the 6 biggest things we want to see
The Apple Watch Ultra with the Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch SE 2.

The Apple Watch Series 8 was a bit of a boring release for Apple’s wearable, as it wasn’t a huge upgrade over the Apple Watch Series 7; Apple seemed to spend more energy focusing on the Apple Watch Ultra instead. The only real upgrades for the Series 8 were the newer-generation S8 chip and a new body temperature sensor, though the use cases for that are pretty limited. But if you didn’t have a Series 7, then the Apple Watch Series 8 was still a great upgrade for those coming from older models.

We’re still a few months away from Apple revealing the next generation of Apple Watch with a Series 9 model, which is most likely coming sometime in the fall, along with the iPhone 15. But until then, here’s what I’m hoping Apple will put in the Apple Watch Series 9 when it finally comes out.

Fall detection is a crucial health and safety feature that all smartwatches are better for having, and now the Pixel Watch is finally joining the ranks of the Apple Watch and the Galaxy Watch with its addition.
