Google Pixel Watch Delayed Again: The Reason Is Chip Shortage


Google Pixel Watch

The Google Pixel 6 has been making furor even not actually appearing on the market. We mean this handset will be unleashed in a week, but everyone is eagerly already waiting for it. Maybe the main reason for such an attitude is the new chip it will come with. Anyway, apart from the Pixel 6 series, there has been another Google product in works that also made a name before its launch. If you guess, we are talking about the Google Pixel Watch.

In fact, this product has been a buzzword since 2018. So when we learned that a new Pixel phone is in the works and will hit the market in October, many have been hoping the Google Pixel Watch will attend the conference as well. Today, MySmartPrice recalled the watch once again. Unfortunately, the news is not good. It turns out the much-awaited Pixel Watch’s launch will be pushed back again.

We know that the Google Pixel 6 line models are set to hit the market on October 19. It’s logical that besides these models, the company will also uncover other gadgets. As a Twitter tipster AI reported a few Google products are likely to make an appearance. He was almost sure that the much-talked Pixel Fold and Pixel Watch may be in the spotlight.

Now, when we know the Pixel Watch will be delayed, it’s interesting to look back. Prior to this, we have heard too much about the Google Pixel 6, but there was no tweet about the Google Pixel Watch. This was a clear hint Google has no plans of launching it at the moment. But we refused to believe. As for now, Max Weinbach, who has been previously claiming that the watch will be launched at the event, thinks it will be delayed because of chip scarcity.

There is still a hope

Max Weinbach said that Google could announce it alongside the Pixel 6 series and then release it later. But there is no assurance that the Pixel Watch would become official next year.

As a reminder, in spring, Jon Prosser showed how the watch might look. As he said, the Pixel Watch is internally known as Rohan. The latter will come with a bezel-less display and a circular screen/ On the right edge, we can see a button that will most likely be a power/function key. Lastly, the watch will come in two colors: black and silver. But Google will offer over 20 different strap options.
