when it comes to something subjective or objectively Better than a similar device, we strive to focus on an objective approach, especially when it comes to our reviews. Just because I think the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the best smartphone ever made, doesn’t mean it’s everyone else’s best Android phone.
This same mindset applies to everything I get my hands on, from tablets, accessories, and today’s topic, smartwatches. in Google Pixel Watch review (Opens in a new tab)!, stated that while they are expensive and dependent on the bands on the record, they are still worth the high price. Something I haven’t touched on much is the actual size of the thing, as that’s a personal opinion that doesn’t really detract from the overall package Google has to offer.
Size mostly doesn’t matter
Take one look at any of the The best smart watches or Fitness trackers Which I reviewed here, and you’ll quickly notice that I don’t have the smallest of wrists. Wearables that are lightweight and make me forget they’re not really my style. And as much as I absolutely adore the Pixel Watch, it, unfortunately, falls into that category.
In comparison, I also have Apple Watch Ultra At 49 mm in size, along with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro which contains a 45 mm case. And when it comes to buying my own wearables, I always go for the largest size possible, if only because small wearables simply don’t feel right on my wrist. At least in my eyes
Compare that to the Pixel watch’s 41mm case size, and it’s simply the difference of day and night on my wrist. it’s a approx So much so that it looks comical, but it still looks a lot better (Ali) than Garmin Vivosmart 5 which I reviewed earlier this year.
I’ve been one of those geeks eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Google smartwatch ever since Android Wear It was an introduction. Rumors got me excited more than a few times, only to have Google let me down. That is, even I/O 2022 conference When the Pixel Watch was first introduced.
It’s one thing to see press renderings of a device, but I went a little overboard trying to get a close-up look at the Pixel Watch on Rick Osterloh’s wrist during the announcement. I’ve never met this individual, it didn’t really help much while I was trying to figure out if he would look good or not of mine wrist.
Alas, the beans were finally spilled and I managed to get the Pixel Watch on my large wrist, only to find myself conflicted. I don’t care for bulky bezels because Built-in Google watch faces Do a great job of hiding them from me. I also don’t have much of an opinion about the rotating crown, as this is a must for any smartwatch that doesn’t want to force you to touch the screen just to scroll.
Honestly, more smartwatches should offer this, even Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. But with the Pixel Watch, I almost exclusively use the Digital Crown as my chubby fingers hide the majority of the screen while scrolling through the various menus.
Pixel Watch 2 should come in more sizes
Assuming Google is really finalizing the design of its next smartwatch, and hasn’t found itself on the chopping block, I’m really hoping the Pixel Watch 2 comes in more than just one size. Google does not need to take a file Apple Watch approach, which offers a total of four different smartwatches, all designed for different prices.
Instead, just take a page out of Apple and Samsung’s book, which makes the Pixel Watch 2 available in 41mm and 45mm sizes. Let those of us who want a bigger smartwatch enjoy a bigger screen, regardless of whether the battery life is the same.
It’s important to note that I don’t have any inside information on what’s coming in Google’s product line. But I will definitely say that there is an argument to be made for there being multiple options, besides colors and bands, for Google’s next wearables.
Google still made the right decision
That all being said, I still firmly believe that Google made the right decision by playing it safe. The smartwatch with a 41mm case size is probably the best-selling model, regardless of who makes it.
“Playing it safe” means that Google hasn’t tried to teeter on the proverbial fences. Smaller color releases, with a few different colors, and less different rangesThen go from there. Gauge the market reaction, and know the bottom line before making any final decisions on whether or not there is a successor.
I still use and wear the Pixel Watch more often than the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, simply because I enjoy the interface a bit more. It may not sound great to me, but I still prefer Google’s vision of Wear OS over any of the other best smartwatch makers out there. That’s kind of the point, right?
The Google Pixel Watch may not have the same overall polish as the Galaxy Watch 5 or Apple Watch. But Google’s use of Wear OS 3.5, paired with the sleek design, makes for an excellent smartwatch experience.
