Google has released a new video showing the upcoming Pixel Watch 2 smartwatch in more detail. Although the novelty is similar to its predecessor in many ways, the video highlights some notable differences. For example, the gadget received a new crown (crown), IP68 protection certification, as well as completely different sensor technology.
Ahead of the October 4 announcement of the new Pixel smartphone lineup, Google decided to briefly unveil future products, including the Pixel 8 Pro smartphone, its smaller version of the Pixel 8, and the new Pixel Watch 2 smartwatch. Updates in previous video companies only surfaced up for a moment. In a new 16-second video, Google showed them in more detail and confirmed the differences between the novelty and its predecessor.
The crucial change concerns the sensor array of the device. The original Pixel Watch features arrayed ECG electrode sensors on the back of the device, the new Pixel Watch 2 features a circular pattern and smaller LEDs. The novelty is rumored to receive a new Sense 2 sensor for continuous monitoring of electroskin reactions. Maybe that’s why Google changed the layout of the sensor array.
As the portal writes The edgeThe video also confirms that the device will be rated IP68. The original Pixel Watch could be submerged in water up to 50 meters deep. They have a water resistance of 5ATM. The new watch also has a dust cover.
The Pixel Watch 2’s new crown sits flush with the screen rather than being recessed into the case like the original watch. Otherwise, the Pixel Watch 2 is clearly based on the design of the previous model. This suggests that the main changes of the new product will be related to its internal components. The Pixel Watch 2 is rumored to have a new Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Plus processor instead of Samsung’s dual-core Exynos 9110, UWB support, and a larger battery.
All the details will be revealed on October 4th when the new smartwatch will be officially launched. The Pixel Watch 2 will begin accepting pre-orders on the same day.
