Google Pixel Watch has been getting a lot of buzz lately, partly because it was found in a restaurant in the US and partly because the smartwatch can compete with Apple Watch. Over the past few days, reports of three different models of the watch and the battery size have already surfaced on the internet. Now, new information suggests that the Google Pixel Watch could come with eSIM capability.
According to a report by genshindata.com, the Google Pixel Watch could offer cellular connectivity via eSIM. Although the post does not reveal its source, it does mention that eSIM connectivity on Google Pixel Watch will allow the smartwatch to make calls and access the internet without relying on Wi-Fi.
However, the post also mentions that eSIM connectivity on the smartwatch might be limited to certain markets around the world, which depend on cellular regulatory authorities.
Will the Google Pixel Watch be launched in India?
A major area of concern for Indian consumers who are eager to buy the smartwatch will be its availability. For the past few years, Google has been unable to get regulatory clearance to launch its products in India, which is why Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 6 were never launched in the country.
However, India has evolved as a consumer market over the past few years. People are more aware of their vital signs than ever, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, and are ready to invest in good quality smartwatches with health tracking features.
In related news, Google Pixel Watch might have improved battery life compared to its competitors. According to a new report from 9To5Google, the next Google Pixel Watch will come with a 300mAh battery. The report also mentions that the upcoming Wear OS device will also feature cellular connectivity.
Although the models that will support this feature are not known, three different variants have been spotted online recently. These specifications are very promising and could make the Pixel Watch a success. As of now, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 comes with a 247mAh battery and offers nearly 24 hours of battery life. If the Pixel Watch actually comes with a 300mAh battery, it would outperform the Galaxy Watch 4.
