- A new report points to Google shipping almost 900,000 Pixel Watches in Q4 2022.
- This falls far short of Samsung and Apple’s shipments during the quarter.
- This is Google’s first watch though, and it’s available in fewer markets than rival devices.
Google launched its long-awaited Pixel Watch alongside the Pixel 7 series back in October, offering a circular design and some Google and Fitbit additions. Was it a commercial hit, though? Well, it looks like we’ve finally got some shipment figures.
How does that compare to rival brands, then? Canalys noted that Samsung shipped 2.9 million wearables but didn’t dish out figures for specific Galaxy Watch models, such as the new Galaxy Watch 5 series. However, the above chart shows that the Korean brand’s smartwatch shipments still handily beat Google’s watch shipments (which include Fitbit smartwatches as well).
This isn’t a surprise at all, as this is Google’s first proper smartwatch while Samsung has offered watches for roughly a decade now. Galaxy watches are also available in far more locales than Google’s wearable.
Either way, both Google and Samsung paled in comparison to Apple’s smartwatch shipments in Q4. The Cupertino company reportedly racked up 13.8 million Apple Watches shipped in the quarter.
