Google launched its Pixel Watch last year and priced it starting at $349 in the US. But how much does it cost the company to manufacture the smartwatch? A new report today from Search for counterpoint focuses on exactly that. The in-depth analysis reveals that the total bill of materials (BoM) for the Pixel Watch is $123.


This figure does not include R&D and marketing costs, keep in mind. Samsung is the primary financial beneficiary, recouping around 20% of the BoM cost for itself, through supplying the chipset, LTE transceiver for the LTE-enabled model, and “other matched components”. There’s also an NXP co-processor, as well as memory made by Kingston. The combined cost of the two processors and memory is almost 27% of the BoM.

The second biggest beneficiary on the supply side is BOE, which sells the custom 1.2-inch OLED display to Google. This represents 14% of the BoM. The GPS chip is provided by Broadcom, as is the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo chip, while STMicroelectronics provides the component needed to support eSIM and Google Pay.

The six-axis inertial sensor and digital compass are also from STMicroelectronics, while the heart rate monitoring system uses parts from Texas Instruments.
