Google just reportedly said it won't release a Pixel Watch this year

You'll have to wait for Google's own watch -- for now, you'll have to buy from partners.

When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of Internet shareware, eBay'd possessions and video game testing jobs after that, he joined Engadget. He helped found The Verge, and later served as Gizmodo's reviews editor. When he's not madly testing laptops, apps, virtual reality experiences, and whatever new gadget will supposedly change the world, he likes to kick back with some games, a good Nerf blaster, and a bottle of Tejava.

With all the recent updates to Google's smartwatch platform and Google's new phones expected Oct. 9 -- not to mention a rather specific report -- the company was widely expected to have its first Google-branded Pixel Watch in tow.

But according to Tom's Guide, Google has officially confirmed that it has no plans to release its own watch in 2018.

Google Wear OS engineering director Miles Barr brought us this bittersweet news: "To think of a one-size-fits-all watch, I don't think we're there yet," Barr told Tom's Guide. "Our focus is on our partners for now."

Tom's Guide says it also double-checked the information with Google following the interview.

Google didn't immediately respond to CNET's request for comment.
