The Google Pixel Watch has been on the market for a few months now, but many consumers are wondering how much it will cost to purchase.
Counterpoint's latest research shows that Google costs $123 to produce the Pixel Watch's LTE-capable version. During its development, the Pixel Watch was sold for $399, resulting in a $276 difference between its manufacturing and retail costs.
Part by part, the report presents a detailed breakdown of the total cost of materials used, and Samsung is responsible for the majority of the cost, with the Exynos 9110 processor, the LTE transceiver, and other paired components.
BOE (14%) is the latest Korean company to beat Samsung in terms of cost contribution. The Pixel Watch has a resolution of 450450 pixels, Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and an OLED display that displays the same color.
Dialog Semiconductor (7%), STMicroelectronics (4%), NXP Semiconductors (3%), and Broadcom (2%) make up the remainder of the bill.
If you add up all of the percentages, you will find them to be slightly more than 100%. This is because to rounding and does not necessarily mean there are any hidden costs.
It becomes apparent how much money Google is spending on each device now that we know the actual price of the Pixel Watch. However, many people believe that the Pixel Watch is worth the price.
Whatever your opinion on the Pixel Watch, it's clear that Google has done an outstanding job of keeping the costs down while still releasing a high-quality product. Hopefully, this report will encourage other tech businesses to continue following Google's lead when it comes to transparent manufacturing costs.
