Here's what earlier rumors had to say about Pixel watch

In the recent months, there were a few reports suggesting Google would release a Pixel smartwatch.

Moreover, reputed tipster Evan Blass also claimed that the tech giant would be releasing its smartwatch in October, alongside the Pixel 3 flagships.

Blass leaked about Pixel Watch back in May this year

Connecting the dots

It is possible that Pixel watch has been delayed/canceled

Back in May, Blass confidently gave out information about the Pixel 3 smartphones, next-generation Pixel buds, and the Pixel Watch.

And considering Blass is known for such tip-offs, it is quite possible that Google might have delayed the entire project or could have simply shelved the whole idea.

But if postponed, we guess Google must be aiming to get the right design and features.
