Despite using its Pixel line of smartphones to showcase the latest version of its Android software, Google has never made a smartwatch to highlight its various wearable operating systems. The new report says this new smartwatch will demonstrate the absolute best features of Wear OS.

The smartwatch, the report adds, is being worked on in Google's Pixel hardware group, and isn't connected to Fitbit, which the company bought earlier this year.
We don't know much about what features we should expect, but these new reports claim that it will feature a heart rate monitor and basic step tracking. It'll need more than that, though, to compete with the Apple Watch.
Google hasn't commented publicly on the report. If and when they do, it's unlikely to happen before Google IO 2022 in May.
