The master leakster showed off new devices he dubbed as "Google Smart Watches".

Google is reported to be working on a new smartwatch under the Pixel brand that may be launched this year itself. But seems like it may be about to change.

According to Twitter tipster Evan Blass, the Pixel Watch is early in its development and will release during Google's annual hardware event which usually sets around the Autumn period.

Yesterday, Qualcomm announced plans to unveil a new chip specifically designed for a smartwatch and wearables.

It looks like 2018 shapes up to be a great year for Google. Most users say that the Pixel phones bring out the best in Android, hopefully the Pixel Watch does the same thing for Wear OS and takes it to the next level. There was no new hardware or software, but only the OS got rebranded.

It'll be interesting to see how Google will showcase these Pixel branded watches to compete with Apple's 38mm and 42mm dial sized watches. Not every single Wear OS watch is a stunning creation, thus we wish Google is going to have the ability to supply a thinner alternative than most other makers that utilizes high-end substances and feels just like a suitable timepiece you are eager to wear.

Last month a report surfaced online suggesting that Google will be launching three smartphones this year called Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and a third mid-range Pixel smartphone. The smartwatches codenamed "Ling", "Triton", and "Sardine" have reached the stage where Google will decide whether the hardware design makes sense for mass production. All the smartwatches in question will be powered by Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC platform.

Sources close to the matter also add that in terms of features, the devices will come with GPS, LTE (with support for VoLTE), Bluetooth (with apt-X - for possible music/audio capabilities), WLAN (Wi-Fi), and a pedometer. Additionally, we could see the brand-new Pixel Buds, along with Google's first Pixel-branded smartwatch.
