The design of the next Google Pixel Watch, the first smartwatch in the Pixel line, has been seen. However, we never really took a closer look at a few design elements of the watch, including the thickness of the bezel of the wearable.
The Pixel Watch’s dark bezels in all of its official and leaked images have conveniently fused the display with the dial, making it impossible to determine where the display actually begins. However, a new video posted by Google finally breaks this down.
The one-minute video showcases some of the features of the Google Pixel Watch, including the unique strap locking mechanism, different color options, and textured crown. It also shows us that the bezels on the Pixel Watch’s round dial are much larger than expected.
The video section shows multiple watch faces on the watch with black areas around the perimeter of the watch face that aren’t really as bright as the watch face. That’s probably because they have large black bezels and aren’t part of the screen.
The Pixel Watch is expected to launch alongside the Pixel 7 series globally on October 6 next month. While the Pixel 7 series was recently confirmed to launch in India, we still don’t have any specifics on when the watch will go on sale, but it will be confirmed on the launch date.
With such thick bezels, there’s no doubt that Google has so far released a watch with only a darker dial, which somewhat disguises the large bezels. However, when it comes to the actual size of the watch bezel, a lighter colored dial would look awful, reminiscent of early smartwatches from years ago.
