Alleged Google Pixel Watch faces leak, show off Fitbit integration, new designs
- New Wear OS 3 watch faces have leaked, and they could appear first on the rumored Google Pixel Watch.
- There are 10 in all, with a mix of digital and analog faces.
- One watch face shows off the platform’s Fitbit integration.
Wear OS 3 has been well-received so far. However, there’s only one smartwatch running on the platform, and Samsung’s software overlay is very heavily customized. This makes it difficult to see which elements are Samsung’s and which elements belong to Google’s “stock” Wear OS 3 build.
Thanks to an update to the Wear OS emulator on Tuesday, we saw an early look at Wear OS 3 without Samsung’s skin and software tweaks. You can see Google’s stock settings menus, battery screens, watch face selection page, and more.
Now, we’re seeing even more of the non-Samsung-ified OS. On Wednesday, 9to5Google found examples of 10 different watch faces tucked away in an APK. Whether or not these will appear on the rumored Google Pixel Watch, we don’t know, but they should show up on an upcoming Wear OS 3 device regardless.
The first four are all digital. There’s a mix of simple and large options, digital faces with complications, and even a heavily numbered dial watch face that’s reminiscent of the very first Moto 360 smartwatch.
The next digital watch face is exciting, as it prominently shows the Fitbit logo as a complication below the time. This suggests Fitbit’s integration into the Wear OS platform is coming sooner rather than later.
The next two digital watch faces show the time on top with a relaxing, colorful beach vibe.
Finally, there are four analog watch faces. The first shows a small analog clock with three complications on its side. The last three are pretty straightforward watch faces showing the date and slots for adding a few complications to the screen.
A few of these watch faces have previously appeared on digital renders of the alleged Google Pixel Watch that came out a few weeks ago. This suggests these watch faces could be exclusive to the Google Pixel Watch, or at least make their debut on the smartwatch, whenever it may be announced.
It’s always important to take Google Pixel Watch leaks with a grain of salt. But seeing as how these watch faces come from the Wear OS 3 emulator, it’s a sure bet we’ll see these on a smartwatch eventually.
