The Pixel Watch, as you may be aware, is on its way. Long a fiction of tech fanatics’ minds, it’s finally occurring this year – Google acknowledged it, clearly unable to keep it a secret despite the fact that the launch is only scheduled for “this fall,” which most likely translates to October.

So, we’ve got a few months of Pixel Watch leaks ahead of us, the most recent of which revealed that the wearable would be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9110 chipset. That’s alarming, given that the SoC was released in 2018 and is based on a 10nm technology.

Today, a new source appears to confirm the above information, but with a twist: the Pixel Watch will supposedly use the Exynos 9110, but it will also include a co-processor. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100+ SoC contains a core CPU as well as a secondary extremely low power co-processor that powers the always-on display and several sensors.

This improves battery life by only using the main CPU when you’re actively using your device, and it also offloads some lighter operations from the main CPU, allowing it to perform a little better when you need it. Will the Pixel Watch be treated similarly? There’s no way to determine just from the mention of a co-processor; we’d need additional information, but don’t worry, we’ll have it in the next weeks and months.

Moving on, the Pixel Watch is reported to “slightly exceed” the 1.5GB of RAM found in the Galaxy Watch4, whatever that means. 1.55GB? 2GB? Your guess is as good as ours, but it appears that the Pixel Watch will have plenty of storage. It will also have 32GB of storage, which is twice as much as any other Wear OS device now available.

The sensor array utilized in the Fitbit Luxe and Fitbit Charge 5 is visibly identical on the back of the wearable. The electronics in question can monitor heart rate, SpO2 (blood oxygen), and ECG, and because Google owns Fitbit, repurposing sensors makes logical.
