Google Pixel Watch 3 could sport slimmer bezels, brighter display and UWB support

Google is gearing up to launch the Pixel Watch 3, the latest in its smartwatch series. According to a new report by Android Authority, the Pixel Watch 3 offers several key improvements over its predecessor, the Pixel Watch 2.

Smaller Bezels and Brighter Display

The Pixel Watch 3 will feature 4.5mm bezels, a reduction from the Pixel Watch 2’s 5.5mm bezels. This change will make the watch face appear larger and more immersive.

The display will be significantly brighter, rated at 2,000 nits, double the Pixel Watch 2’s 1,000-nit display. This enhancement will improve readability in bright sunlight.

Internal Specs and UWB Support

The Pixel Watch 3 will retain the Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 platform with a custom co-processor. A notable addition is Ultra-Wideband (UWB) support, a feature rumoured for the Pixel Watch 2 but not included. UWB could enable precise device finding and features like unlocking your car using Digital Car Key.

Size, Battery, and Color Options

The Pixel Watch 3 will be available in two sizes: 41mm with a 310mAh battery and 45mm with a 420mAh battery. Both sizes will offer cellular and Wi-Fi variants.

New color options include Silver/Rose Quartz, Black/Obsidian, and Gold/Hazel for the 41mm model, and Silver/Rose Quartz, Black/Obsidian, and Silver/Porcelain for the 45mm model.
