Google’s Pixel Watch 3 could be thicker than its last-gen device, hinting at potentially new sensors

A series of renders have recently surfaced for the Pixel Watch 3 giving us our first insight into what Google’s upcoming wearable may look like. Originating from notable industry insider OnLeaks, the new model looks nearly identical to the Pixel Watch 2. It has the same 1.2-inch “bezel-less display with a rotating crown on the side”, according to the report. Pictures show the wearable in black attached to a matching strap although more colors are expected to be available at launch.

Designs begin to deviate when you look at the purported dimensions. The Pixel Watch 3 is said to measure 40.79 x 40.73 x 14 mm. By comparison, the Pixel Watch 2 sits at 41 x 41 x 12.3 mm. So the future smartwatch will be slightly smaller than the previous generation, but also thicker than before – almost two whole millimeters. It’s unknown exactly why the wearable has the extra heft although there are a couple of theories.

Bigger battery or new sensors?
