Just like other premium Smartwatches, the Pixel Watch is expected to come with both LTE and Wi-Fi version and it would be made available when the phones launches. According to sources, Pixel-Watch is developed as three variants with code name Ling, Triton and Sardine. The smart report also suggest that the Pixel Watch would come with at least 1GB of RAM and packed with Qualcomm’s latest wearable chipset like the Snapdragon Wear 3100. It would also sport new processor which would be smaller, efficient and would perform at its best.
Pixel Watch would run on a stock version of wear OS or a version with the special features just like the latest Android Pixel phones.
It has been rumoured that Pixel Watch would feature many new upgrades along with the advanced Google Assistant, Goole Assistant, and touch of a Google Assistant. The features would be heavily upgraded and packing it into more products. It is also expected that the device would support Google’s Voice Assistant which would be the next big thing in the world of smart wearable.

There are no leaked images available over the internet or schematics about the device. So, anything that you found online about the design of the Pixel Watch is purely conjecture. According to the sources online, the Pixel Watch is expected to be smaller than other Smartwatches in the market and hence it would be smaller in size with powerful processors and energy efficient features. Google is looking forward to chop off a few millimetres of the overall case width and this would deliver you a smaller version of Smartwatch.

In terms of availability of the Pixel Watch, Google would sell the Smartwatch both on its website and also on all major retail outlets. Google would introduce the LTE version of the wearable first and it might be a carrier exclusive throughout the holiday season.
