The highly anticipated next generation of Google devices is here, with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones, out now alongside the new Google Pixel Watch.

Sleek designs, smart features, improved photography, and tight security are among the main features of the Pixel 7 phones. Meanwhile, the long-awaited Google Pixel Watch brings together Google and Fitbit technology to create a smart wearable packed with health and fitness functionality.

The Pixel 7 has a more compact design than the 6, with a reduced bezel resulting in a 6.3-inch display. It has a zirconia-blasted aluminium finish that comes in three colour variations – Snow, Obsidian and Lemongrass – while the Pro swaps out Lemongrass for Hazel. Internally, the Pixel 7 runs on the next-gen Tensor G2 processor, with the recently launched Android 13 operating system pre-installed. From a security standpoint, both new phones use the Titan M2 security chip, while VPN by Google One will come at no extra cost later in the year.

Some of the major differences between the standard and pro versions come in the form of speed and photography capabilities. For example, the Pixel 7 Pro includes 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, compared to the base model’s 8 GB, meaning the Pro will likely run a bit faster. 

For camera buffs, the Pixel 7 has two rear cameras including one 50MP camera with a max f/1.85 aperture, and a 12MP ultrawide lens featuring a 114-degree field of view. Comparatively, the Pixel 7 Pro’s ultrawide camera also has autofocus and a wider 125.8-degree field of view. Additionally, the more powerful phone has a third rear camera – a 48MP telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom and its software-driven Super Res Zoom feature punches in up to 30x.

Also out now, the Google Pixel Watch is made for comfort and durability, opting for a circular 3D domed glass design. Attached to a stainless steel body, the 41mm watch face is scratch-resistant and water-resistant up to 50m. Similar to other smartwatches, the Google Pixel Watch has inbuilt GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, plus SIM card connectivity thanks to an optional 4G LTE model. The watch runs on Wear OS 3.5, with access to many of the standard Google apps, including Google Assistant, Maps and Mail. More apps are available to download from the Google Play Store.

As part of the Fitbit integration with Google Pixel Watch, 40 exercise modes are included to help users track different workout types and help to meet fitness goals. The watch also comes with six months of Fitbit Premium for new and returning customers. This subscription service offers added health and fitness metrics, plus over 800 workouts and 400 mindfulness sessions.

Available from retailers in three different colour configurations, the Google Pixel Watch also has 20 different wristband options in total, in addition to 19 customisable watch faces. What’s more, users aren’t locked into the Google Pixel ecosystem with the new watch; phones running on Android 8.0 or later work with the Google Pixel Watch.

Each new Pixel device is available for purchase now. The Google Pixel 7 starts at $999, while the Pixel 7 Pro begins at $1,299, with both phones stocked at the Google Store, JB Hi-Fi, Telstra, Vodafone, Officeworks and Harvey Norman – Optus will sell the phones soon.
