Google has confirmed Tom's Guide that it does not plan to release its own smartwatch this year. Earlier rumors had pointed to a likely release of a so-called "Pixel Watch", and many expected it to be announced together with Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and everything else Google has planned for an expected October 9 hardware event.  Tom's Guide left no big doubt in Google's plans, confirming the news with the company after interviewing one of its leaders:
Miles Barr, Google's Wear OS Engineering Director, said Friday in an interview that Google has no plans to release a smartwatch this year.
"Thinking of a one-size-passer-all clock, I do not think we" Stay there, "says Barr. "Our focus is on our partners for now."
After the interview, Google confirmed that it will not release a smartwatch this year.

For this news, hopes were high that Google was on its way to a major smartwatch launch – just renewing Wear OS and Google Fit, for example. Qualcomm is also expected to uncover a new processor on September 10, which will allow Wear OS watches to break out of the variations of a birch circle we've seen in the last couple of years. We do not want to see a Pixel Watch this year, but Qualcomm's new announcement will lead to newer, better Wear OS watches in the near future.
We've come to Google to see if there's more information to add and want to update this post if we hear back.
