The watch will have basic fitness tracking features, including step counting and a heart rate monitor. Google is also said to be working on Fitbit integration into Wear OS with the new watch upon launch.

Previous renders reveal that the smartwatch may come in a slim form factor with a screen that is curved around a metal frame. A large crown button was shown on the right side of the dial, but the report did not specify what purpose the key would be used for.

On the other hand, if we talk about the features, the renders have revealed some tracking tools, including map integration, heart rate monitoring and a pedometer. The list of features included SpO2 (oxygen) tracking, sleep apnea detection, sleep analysis, heart rate alert, recovery time monitoring, stress tracking, medical device and gym equipment pairing, rape detection, and calorie tracking.
