The Google Pixel Watch is one of the most of the most anticipated products this year. Set to launch alongside the Google Pixel 7 range of phones and a host of Google Nest smart home products, the Pixel watch signals Google's first foray into the smartwatch category.

The Pixel Watch has been the subject of a number of leaks over the last few weeks, leaving us with a relatively clear picture of what to expect from the new device.

Now, only a week before the Google Pixel launch event, expected UK pricing for the Pixel Watch has leaked, revealing a much more challenging price point than previous estimations.

Google Pixel Watch Price

According to renowned leaker, Roland Quandt (opens in new tab), the Pixel Watch base model will start at £339 in the UK. That's more expensive than the Apple Watch SE and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.

There will be a higher price model with 4G capability too, likely to land around £380.

We reported on a previous leak last week, which suggested that the base model would debut between £220 and £320. That leak also revealed three colours – Chalk, Charcoal and Obsidian – with an exciting fourth in Hazel leaked later on.

Google Pixel event: what to expect

The new generation of Pixel phones is going to be announced, along with the Pixel Watch. Nest smart home products are also mentioned, and Google just leaked a new Nest Doorbell which we expect to see. We're also expecting a Pro variant of the Google Nest Wi-Fi, which could do with an update to take advantage of Wi-Fi 6.

Rumours about the Google Pixel Tablet seem to be coming true, but a Pixel foldable phone was also rumoured. The latter hasn't seen the light of day thus far, aside from a handful of patents, so it's arguably the least likely to feature.

Google's launch event will take place on October 6th 2022 at 10AM EST / 3PM BST.

Can't wait for the Google Pixel Watch?
