Google showcases the Pixel Watch's unique design in latest video teaser
Google's product launches have definitely been getting progressively more... different in recent times, culminating with the teaser from May for the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch that are only due to become fully official on October 6.
But Google hasn't stood still from May up until now either - it's already revealed the chipset inside the phones as well as their color versions and pre-order start date, and today it's time for us to get a much better look at the Pixel Watch.

A proprietary strap attachment system is also all but confirmed through this video, so if you were hoping to fit your existing collection of 20- or 22-mm straps to this smartwatch, you're out of luck. Google is definitely going to say that the proprietary system gives the watch a more streamlined look, and it does, but this also reeks of a) being "inspired" by Apple and b) wanting to make an easy buck off of accessory sales.
