Google just wrapped its big hardware event to finally give us the full reveal of the Pixel Watch, the company’s first-ever self-made wearable.

And the Pixel Tablet made a surprise appearance with its new functionality as a smart home hub. 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. The Pixel Watch features a round watch face, unlike the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Ultra’s squircle-shaped screen. It also features a unique band attachment mechanism without any visible lugs. Instead, you attach the watch band to the top and bottom of the wearable and rotate it to lock it in place, similar to how a camera lens attaches to a camera body.

The Pixel Watch also brings deep Fitbit integration to track your workouts and health data. Google claims it will deliver the most accurate once-per-second heart rate tracking yet. Plus, it features 40 exercise modes and a 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 comes 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 preorder 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 features a slightly smaller 6.3-inch, 1080p display compared to the Pixel 6’s 6.4-inch screen, but it also has slimmer bezels. According to Google, the 90Hz display on this new phone is also 25% brighter.
As for internal power, this phone comes rocking Google’s new Tensor G2 processor with 8GB of RAM. That new processor helps power faster computations, halving the time it takes to shoot Night Sight photos. Additionally, there are new camera tricks like face unblur and Cinematic Blur in video mode.
The Pixel 7 also has a slightly smaller capacity battery, but it promises 24-hour battery life and 48 hours of usage with Extreme Battery Saver. 30W charging is also supported over wired and wireless.
As for cameras, the Pixel 7 still features a 50-megapixel camera, but no you can use a 2x zoom mode that digitally crops in using the 12-megapixels at the center of the sensor. The selfie camera on the Pixel 7 has also been upgraded to a 10.8 sensor, the same one found in the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro.
The Pixel 7 is available for preorder now for $599, and it will arrive on October 13.
Google Pixel 7 Pro

The Pixel 7 Pro has seen quite a lot of changes, especially on the camera front. Like the Pixel 7, the Pixel 7 Pro features the same main 50MP camera with the added 2x digital zoom trick. The telephoto has been upgraded to 5x optical zoom, and the 48MP sensor can digitally zoom up to 10x. What’s more, you can combine the digital zoom capabilities of both cameras for up to 30x telephoto. Additionally, the ultrawide camera features an even wider 125-degree field of view, plus autofocus and macro-mode shooting.
Also similar to the Pixel 7, the Pixel 7 Pro features a 0.1-inch shorter display to make this 6.7-inch device a little less thick. The display features a 3120 x 1440 OLED panel with a maximum 120Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 7 Pro also features the new Tensor G2 chip plus a bit more memory at 12GB. As for the battery, the Pixel 7 Pro offers 5000 mAh of capacity, which Google claims will offer a 24-hour battery life.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro is available for preorder starting at $899 and will ship on October 13.
Google Pixel Tablet
The Google Pixel Tablet popped up during the latest Made By Google event. There’s still no new information about screen size or many other internal specs other than it currently runs a Tensor G2 processor. However, we got to see how it can magnetically attach to a speaker base and become a Nest Hub. Google also revealed the Pixel Tablet will come in two colors; off-white and olive green. Google once again confirmed the Pixel Tablet will arrive in 2023.
