For the past year or two, we have been hearing rumors that Google could be working on their own smartwatch also known as the Pixel Watch. With Google making its own Pixel brand of smartphones, tablets, and laptops, we suppose smartwatches shouldn’t really come as a surprise, especially with Wear OS belonging to Google.
Unfortunately, nothing has materialized to date, but that could change soon thanks to a newly spotted job listing. On Google’s Career page, it appears that Google is looking to hire a Vice President of Hardware Engineering for Wearables, where their job entails them being “responsible for the design, development, and shipment of all Google’s Wearable products.”
This has led to speculation that Google could be getting serious about its wearables and that its Pixel Watch could finally materialize. This is by no means a guarantee that the highly-rumored Pixel Watch will surface, but it certainly feels that way. At the moment the only wearable that Google owns is the Pixel Buds, so it seems unlikely that Google is looking to hire a VP just for that.
At the moment there are a variety of brands that use Google’s Wear OS, but just like with Pixel smartphones, there are probably some who can probably appreciate if Google made their own Pixel smartwatch, just to show the full potential of the Wear OS platform. Google I/O 2019 is currently scheduled to take place this coming May, so if there ever was a time for the Pixel Watch to make an appearance, that could be it.
