Last night, Google had a busy night at its annual developer conference with the introduction of its new products. One of these products, which was finally introduced to users after many rumors and speculations, was the Google Pixel Watch. In fact, it should be said that users witnessed the preview of Google's first smartwatch at this event, because this wearable gadget is going to be available in global markets this fall along with the new Pixel 7 series. An important point at the event was that Google announced the prerequisite for the Android operating system of this Watch and said that users of the Android operating system 8.0 and above can use this smartwatch. However, the search engine giant did not mention any pre-requisites for the iOS operating system, and this issue has created a lot of rumors that this Watch does not support iOS.

WearOS 2 smartwatches support phones running Android 6.0 and above, as well as iOS 13.0 and above. According to the information provided by the video of the introduction of the Google Pixel Watch at last night's event, this Watch supports the Android 8.0 operating system, which was released in 2017. If we look at it from another angle, these days, few people use smartphones with Android operating system less than version 8.0, and most new economy and mid-range smartphones are at least equipped with Android 11 operating system. So this Google policy will apply to a small segment of Android users and the rest can easily use the Pixel Watch.
iOS at its event last night, and that sounds a little strange. It should be noted that Samsung also used this procedure when introducing the Galaxy Watch 4, and this was the first smartwatch with WearOS that does not support iOS. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. . He did not comment on Google's support for iOS. It should be noted that Google's new smartwatch, according to the official images, is circular in shape and uses a dome-shaped design. To the right of the circular bezel is a rotating knob that users can use to perform their daily tasks. There is also a button at the top. The Watch is made of stainless steel and is water resistant to a depth of 50 meters.
