New hardware will include the latest iterations of the company's Pixel 7 Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, in addition to the Pixel Watch. The announcement also will cover new additions to Google's Nest smart home portfolio.

All of the new hardware will be available the same day.

The in-person event is limited to certain media members, although the event will be livestreamed on the company's website.

The Pixel Watch is the company's first entry into the smartwatch market, and is entirely designed and built by Google. It incorporates the wireless Fitbit app and is designed to work with all Pixel and Android phones.
