A new report shows that the Google Pixel Watch costs $123 to make

Last year, Google launched the Pixel Watch, priced from $349 in the United States. But what is the cost of making the smart watch to the company? New report today from Counterpoint Research Focuses on exactly that. An 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, mind you. Samsung is the primary financial beneficiary, taking about 20% of the BoM cost for itself, thanks to providing the chipset and LTE transceiver for the LTE-enabled model, as well as “other dual components”. An NXP processor is in there, too, as well as Kingston-made memory. The total cost of two processors and memory is approximately 27% of the BoM.

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

The six-axis inertial sensor and digital compass come from STMicroelectronics as well, while the heart rate monitor uses Texas Instruments parts.
