May should be the opportunity to discover the Pixel Watch, namely Google’s connected watch, as well as the Pixel 6a. In any case, that is what is rumored.
A launch on May 26 for the Pixel Watch?
According to leaker Jon Prosser, Google has chosen the date of May 26 to launch its Pixel Watch. This watch has been in the news for a while now, with the latest rumors pointing to a spring launch. May 26 would precisely correspond to the niche.
I’m hearing that Google is planning on launching it on Thursday, May 26th — over year since we leaked it.
This is the first we’ve seen a set date on the device behind the scenes.

If we are to believe the information that has already circulated, the watch would be round and would not have borders around the screen. Google would also use proprietary bracelets and the product would have to be recharged once a day. A priori, the load would be quite slow, at least with the models in test. When it comes to sensors, there would be a heart rate monitor and a step counter. But the interesting bit is how Google hopes to start integrating Fitbit on Wear OS with this watch. As a reminder, Google (with difficulty) bought Fitbit for 2.1 billion dollars.
An arrival of the Pixel 6a at the same time
As for the Pixel 6a, the launch would take place during the month of May according to the leaker Max Jamborwhich does not give a precise day.
The Google Pixel 6a is expected to pick up what the Google Pixel 6 started, with a revamped design, use of Google’s Tensor chip, and a smaller photo portion compared to more expensive models. Rumors also suggest that this will be the first Pixel “a” without a jack.
