A watch worthy of the ‘Pixel’ range

The design of the Pixel Watch 2 follows the same lines as the first generation. We have a body with a 1.2-inch circular AMOLED screen with a maximum brightness of up to 1,000 nits.

The body is made of recycled aluminum, protected with a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 and has an action button along with a circular crown that rotates to navigate the interface.

Google explains that the straps are interchangeable and that it will be compatible with different types of bands, very similar to the Apple Watch. The back is where the sensors are included.

But without a doubt one of the great novelties is the choice of a more powerful processor. The Pixel Watches were characterized by their software features, but the chipset chosen for the first generation was somewhat outdated. This is not the case now, where Google opts for the Snapdragon W5+ Gen1 , a processor that shines in energy management and offers considerably greater performance.

At the autonomy level, the Pixel Watch 2 promises 24 hours with the ‘Always-On Display’ active . Compared to the previous model, its battery has been slightly expanded to 306 mAh.

It has magnetic charging with USB-C and the total charging time is about 80 minutes for 100% or 30 minutes for 50%.

Among the sensors included, in addition to a renewed cardiac measurement sensor, we have new sensors such as temperature and a skin electrical conductance sensor. This is a technology that we already had in Fitbit devices. A cEDA sensor that detects signs of stress in the body .

The software is another of the strong points of the Pixel Watch 2. The Google watch arrives with WearOS 4.0 and multiple synchronization options with other devices and detection.

The Google Pixel Watch 2 offers ‘Fast Pair’, remote control of the mobile camera, fall detection and compatibility with Google Home. Additionally, it offers 6 free months of Fitbit Premium and one free month of Youtube Music Premium.

Pixel Watch 2 versions and price

The new Google Pixel Watch 2 will also be available in Spain starting October 12, where it can be purchased at an official price of 399 euros . Unlike previous years, Google has finally chosen to include our country among the markets where its smart watch is available.

There are multiple straps available, both green, porcelain or light blue, as well as metallic colors. The Pixel Watch 2 can now be reserved and will be sold in the Google Store and Amazon.
