Of course, Google has been making its own Pixel-branded smartphones and earbuds for years, but despite constant rumours and leaks the company has never designed its own smartwatch.
According to a new report from Insider, the watch, codenamed “Rohan”, is being worked on by Google’s Pixel hardware group. It will serve a similar role to the Pixel phones – acting as an example of what Google’s software is truly capable of when given the right hardware.
The watch will have basic fitness tracking features, and it's not yet clear whether Google will actually be calling it a “Pixel Watch”.
This is just the latest update in Google's Pixel Watch saga, with rumours of the device first appearing in May 2018. The latest news of this smartwatch isn't exactly a surprise, however, with Rick Osterloh, SVP of Devices and Services at Google, telling The Verge that "an in-house Wear OS wearable was already on the horizon".
