This is our very first look at the Google Pixel Watch 3

Google is expected to introduce the Google Pixel 9 smartphone series later this year. At the same time, the company is almost certainly going to reveal the Pixel Watch 3. Now, 91Mobiles has released renders that are purported to show the new smartwatch.

If you were hoping for something different from the previous two Pixel Watches, we have bad news for you.

The images suggest the next Pixel Watch 3 will look very similar to the Pixel Watch 2. It will have a circular bezel-less display with a rotating crown and a 1.2-inch display — just like its predecessor. Once again, the smartwatch should be available in black with a matching strap, but it is expected to be offered in additional colors when it is officially released.

We could also see an ultra-wideband (UWB) chip for location tracking and short-range communication. With UWB, you might be able to locate a lost Android phone, similar to what the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 can do with Apple’s Precision Finding technology.

According to previous rumors, the Google Pixel Watch 3 might have a slightly thicker design, which could accommodate a larger battery. There are also rumors suggesting that Google will release the Pixel Watch 3 in two sizes this time. Unlike the previous Pixel Watch 2, which was only available in a 41mm size, the new one will also come in a 45mm size. That could be a big deal for anyone who has eyed a Pixel Watch previously, but thought it was too small for their wrists.

More Pixel Watch 3 leaks will likely arrive before it’s announced this fall. Most likely, this will happen in October, which is the month when Google typically announces new Pixel products. Until then, stay tuned.

5 phones you should buy instead of the Google Pixel 8a
The Google Pixel 8a's screen.

Everyone loves a bargain, and it's hard to argue that the Google Pixel 8a is anything but. With a flagship processor and one of the best phone cameras around, the $499 smartphone has the specs to make it a steal. But Google hasn't just crammed great hardware into the phone, as it also has one of the cleanest implementations of Android 14, all of Google's current AI roster, and an incredible seven years of software updates to boot. It's a cheap phone that can go the distance, and one we are more than happy to recommend.

But it's not perfect. The battery is a little weak, as is its charging ability — and the less said about the cheap-feeling plastic body, the better. So even though it's a strong phone, there are a number of alternatives that could pull your eyes away from Google's latest midrange phone.

Google is doing something incredible with the Pixel Watch 3
Leaked render of Google Pixel Watch 3 XL.

It seems going XL is in vogue at Google’s design labs. We recently came across leaks claiming to depict the Google Pixel 9 Pro XL, Google's all-out big-screen flagship that will be its answer to the Pro Max and Ultra phones out there. A similar treatment is in line for the upcoming Pixel Watch 3 smartwatch, as well.

Android Headlines has shared leaked product renders of what it calls the "Pixel Watch 3 XL." Fittingly for its name, this one will serve a larger 1.45-inch display, up from the 1.2-inch OLED screen on the regular version. It’s also reportedly going to be roughly 12% thicker compared to the Pixel Watch 2. The added chassis depth is said to accommodate a larger battery, but we don't know the exact capacity yet.

If you have a Pixel 8 or Pixel 8a, you will soon be able to use Gemini Nano on your phone. Gemini Nano, Google's most efficient AI model for on-device tasks, was previously only available on the Pixel 8 Pro. To access Gemini Nano, you must enable developer options on the phone. Gemini Nano is a bit limited today, but it sets the foundation for powerful on-device AI features down the road.
