This first Pixel-branded smartwatch from Google costs $350 for the Wi-Fi unit and $400 for the 4G LTE model. Post-launch, Google announces that the Pixel Watch will get at least three years of Wear OS updates.

says this three-year period starts when the watch hits the Google Store in the US. The page states that the gear will get guaranteed software updates until October 2025. These software patches will include security updates, feature drops, and other software updates on Google Pixel Watch.

Interestingly, the company has not separately mentioned the smartwatch’s Wear OS updates and security patches year. The table says “Guaranteed software updates” rather than “Guaranteed Android version updates” and “Guaranteed security updates,” seen on Pixel phones. 

It boots on Android 11-based Wear OS 3.5 out of the box, and the past (Android 9) would suggest that the next Wear OS update could be based on Android 13. Usually, most updates on the wearable platform get delivered as apps/services via Play Store.
