During the keynote of its Google I/O conference, the manufacturer not only announced the Pixel 6a smartphone and the Pixel Buds Pro headphones, but also gave a preview of its future products.
After many rumors, Google has officially presented its connected watch Pixel Watch, which will be available in the fall. All in curves, the watch benefits from an improved version of Wear OS 3, the fruit of the alliance between Samsung and Google, but also from integration with Fitbit. Indeed, Google bought Fitbit last year and intends to offer gateways between the products of the two companies. For example, the Pixel Watch will use Fitbit’s latest algorithms for sports and health.
Google apps such as Maps, Wallet, Home and Assistant will also be present. The manufacturer did not give a price, but indicated that the watch would have a premium positioning. Also, it will require a Google account and a smartphone with at least Android 8.0. Too bad for iPhone users.
Two new smartphones in the fall
In the fall, Google will also launch its new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones. The manufacturer showed some photos that indicate a design close to that of the Pixel 6, with the rear photo modules positioned horizontally. However, the bar of the modules is made of aluminum, unlike the black bar of the Pixel 6/6 Pro. As on the Pixel 6 Pro, the 7 Pro model should also include a telephoto module.
No further details on the devices, except which will use a new generation of Google’s Tensor SoC, as well as Android 13.
A new tablet for 2023
Finally, Google created a surprise by announcing its return to the tablet market, after a sudden stop in 2019. The objective for the manufacturer is to offer a complete ecosystem in its product range. But the first images of the tablet are a little disappointing, with a dated design that could give pride of place to plastic.
For the moment, Google has not given any characteristics on its Pixel Tablet and does not plan to market it before 2023.

We will therefore have to wait to see if the tablet has enough strengths to cope with competing models from Samsung and Apple, which have benefited from many developments in recent years.
