The solar got here out in Portland this weekend for the primary time in over a month, temperatures reached nearly 70 levels, The Unhealthy Guys was launched, the NBA Playoffs had been going off, and I mainly turned my cellphone away from the world, particularly the tech area. What occurred throughout that point? Somebody left a Google Pixel Watch at a bar. Can’t make it up.
Alright, so yeah, a Google Pixel Watch was left at a bar/restaurant and somebody then despatched a bunch of pics of it throughout the web and right here we’re. The oldsters at Android Central first obtained them and caught us up on the story, however then the man who at the moment has the watch jumped onto reddit to share extra particulars, together with extra footage.
The story round how the watch ended up on this man’s palms is sort of foolish. Apparently, somebody left the watch in a field at a restaurant and the bartender discovered it. The restaurant then held the look ahead to a number of weeks hoping that somebody would come again to say it, solely that by no means occurred. The bartender then handed it to his pal, the “tech nerd,” as a result of he figured he’d respect it most.
Photos of the gadget from prime to backside and sides had been then shared, in addition to separate footage of the bands (as a result of the bartender forgot to provide them to the pal). On reddit, the man then posted comparability photographs of the Pixel Watch with the Apple Watch 40mm and Galaxy Watch 46mm, confirmed what it would appear like on wrist, and the way thick the bezels are.
As for the watch, it undoubtedly seems to be like a shiny spherical bulb with stainless-steel case. There’s a rotating crown that doubles as a button, in addition to a few facet buttons that you could’t actually see right here. It must be the same button setup to what most Wear OS watches have. There may be additionally a heartrate sensor on the underside.
Prepared for these?
And now the wrist shot:
And listed here are the Pixel Watch bands, which look proprietarily obnoxious:
Some notes from the redditor:
- The watch is lifeless and received’t cost. He tried two Qi wi-fi chargers and the PowerShare function from a Samsung cellphone, but nothing. He talked about that there’s some recognition when first positioned on a charger, however then it received’t cost.
- The watch initially booted to a “G” emblem on the restaurant, however wouldn’t go previous that display screen and has since absolutely died. There might not even be an entire OS on this factor.
- The watch is a couple of half-inch thick (!) and 1.5-inches huge.
What a wild scenario.
