  • Google revealed that the Pixel Watch will receive Wear OS 4.

  • The Pixel Watch 2 will be released with the operating system, but it will not be available on the Pixel Watch until later in the year.

  • The foundation of Wear OS 4 is rooted in Android 13.


At the Made by Google event, Google revealed that the Pixel Watch 2 will be compatible with Wear OS 4 upon release. However, there is uncertainty surrounding the original Pixel Watch’s compatibility – it appears that it will eventually receive the wearable OS, but not immediately.

The Android Developers Blog revealed that the newest edition of Wear OS will be available on the Pixel Watch. However, the Pixel Watch 2 will receive the update immediately, while Google’s original smartwatch will have to wait until later this year. The company did not specify a specific date for the release.
