Google just wrapped up its big hardware event to finally give us the full reveal of the Pixel Watch, the very first wearable made by the company. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro were also announced with much fanfare around their improved cameras and new styling. And the Pixel tablet made a surprise appearance with its new smart home hub feature. If you missed the big event, here’s everything Google announced today.
Made by Google 2022
Google Pixel Watch
Google kicked off the show by introducing the Google Pixel Watch, the company’s first-ever wearable watch. The Pixel Watch features a round face, unlike the circle-shaped screen of the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra. It also features a unique band attachment mechanism with no visible tabs. Instead, you attach the watch strap to the top and bottom of the wearable and rotate it to lock it in place, much like a camera lens attaches to a device case. Photo.

The Pixel Watch also brings deep Fitbit integration to track your workouts and health data. Google says it will provide the most accurate once-per-second heart rate tracking yet. Plus, it has 40 exercise modes and built-in GPS. For sleep tracking, you’ll be able to see your sleep score and stages, and there’s an ECG app that can detect signs of atrial fibrillation.
The Google Pixel Watch is available in a Bluetooth/Wi-Fi or 4G LTE model priced at $349 and $399, respectively. It also includes six months of Fitbit Premium and three months of YouTube Music Premium. The Google Pixel Watch is available for pre-order today and will arrive on October 13.
Google Pixel 7

The Google Pixel 7 is here, and it looks classier than ever with a sophisticated and durable aluminum chassis. It has a 6.3-inch 1080p display that’s slightly smaller than the Pixel 6’s 6.4-inch screen, but it also has thinner bezels. According to Google, the 90Hz display of this new phone is also 25% brighter.
As for internal power, this phone has Google’s new Tensor G2 processor with 8GB of RAM. This new processor helps speed up calculations, halving the time needed to take Night Sight photos. Additionally, there are new camera tricks like face blur and cinematic blur in video mode.
The Pixel 7 also has a slightly lower capacity battery, but it promises 24 hours of battery life and 48 hours of use with Extreme Battery Saver. 30W charging is also supported by wired and wireless.
As for the cameras, the Pixel 7 still has a 50-megapixel camera, but no, you can use a 2x zoom mode that digitally crops using the 12-megapixel in the center of the sensor. The Pixel 7’s selfie camera has also been upgraded to a 10.8 sensor, the same as the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro.
The Pixel 7 is available for pre-order now for $599, and it will arrive on October 13.

The Pixel 7 Pro has seen a lot of changes, especially on the camera front. Like the Pixel 7, the Pixel 7 Pro has the same 50MP main camera with the added 2x digital zoom trick. The telephoto lens has been upgraded to 5x optical zoom and the 48MP sensor can digitally zoom up to 10x. Plus, you can combine the digital zoom capabilities of both cameras for up to 30x telephoto. Additionally, the ultra-wide camera has an even wider 125-degree field of view, as well as autofocus and macro mode shooting.
Also similar to the Pixel 7, the Pixel 7 Pro has a 0.1-inch shorter screen to make that 6.7-inch device feel a little thinner. The display has a 3120 x 1440 OLED panel with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. The Pixel 7 Pro also features the new Tensor G2 chip and a bit more memory at 12GB. As for the battery, the Pixel 7 Pro offers a 5,000mAh capacity, which Google says will provide 24-hour battery life.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro is available for pre-order starting at $899 and will ship on October 13.
Google Pixel tablet
The Google Pixel tablet appeared at the latest Made By Google event. There’s still no new info on screen size or many other internal specs other than the fact that it’s currently running a Tensor G2 processor. However, we got to see how it can magnetically attach to a speaker base and become a Nest Hub. Google has also revealed that the Pixel tablet will be available in two colors; off-white and olive green. Google has again confirmed that the Pixel tablet will arrive in 2023.
