Google is gearing up to launch the Pixel Watch 3, the latest iteration of its smartwatch lineup. According to a new report, this new model promises several key improvements over its predecessor, the Pixel Watch 2.

One of the most noticeable changes is the reduction in bezel size. The Pixel Watch 3 will reportedly feature 4.5mm bezels, a significant decrease from the 5.5mm bezels found on the Pixel Watch 2. This change should make the watch face appear larger and more immersive.

In addition to smaller bezels, the Pixel Watch 3 will also boast a brighter display. The new display is said to be rated at 2,000 nits, doubling the brightness of the Pixel Watch 2‘s 1,000-nit display. This enhancement should make the watch much easier to read in bright sunlight.

Under the hood, the Pixel Watch 3Β is said to retain the same Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 platform with a custom co-processor as the Pixel Watch 2. However, it will finally include Ultra-Wideband (UWB) support, a feature that was rumored for the Pixel Watch 2 but ultimately did not make it into the final product. UWB could enable features like precise device finding and unlocking your car using Digital Car Key.Additionally, the Pixel Watch 3 has been rumored to be available in two sizes, 41mm and 45mm, with both cellular and Wi-Fi variants. The 41mm model will have a 310mAh battery, while the 45mm model will have a larger 420mAh battery.

Google is also introducing several new colorways for the Pixel Watch 3. The 41mm model will be available in Silver with a Rose Quartz band, Black with an Obsidian band, and Gold with a Hazel band. The 45mm model will be available in Silver with a Rose Quartz band, Black with an Obsidian band, and Silver with a Porcelain band.
