Google unveils new Pixel Watch


Google has unveiled its first smartwatch at its annual developer conference.

The Google Pixel Watch combines its own Wear operating system with Fitbit health tracking.

Fitbit was acquired by Google for $2.1bn in 2019.

The watch can be paired with Android devices only and is 4G-compatible, which means it can function on its own without being near a phone – but to do this it requires its own data plan.

According to Google, Both the phone and watch would also need to be on the same network.
