The official presentation of the Google Pixel Watch 2the long-awaited second generation of Google’s smartwatch, will be produced next October 4at the Made by Google event, in which the company will also show us the generational change of its smartphones, with the also expected Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Thus, just over three weeks separates us from the one that, together with the Google I/O is the company’s most important event of the year in terms of devices and services of general scope.
With the years, Google has been able to gain positions in a sector as competitive as mobile telephony., to the point that their Pixels already occupy very significant positions in several markets, in a tremendously organic growth, in which communications from satisfied users have been the main way of disseminating the message. Thus, Google has been able to begin to build an interesting ecosystem, which started last year with the presentation of the Pixel Watch first generation, and took a step further last May with the presentation of the Pixel Tablet.
As always happens when a technology company launches a new product line, one of the questions we ask ourselves is what its update frequency will be, that is, how often a new iteration will be presented. With the tablet it will still take a while to have confirmation of this, but for some time now we have known that the plans for the Watch in this regard are, at least initially, to update it annually.
Thus, with its relevance and the imminence of its presentation, All kinds of leaks about the Pixel Watch 2 can be expected, what was not so expected is that it was Google itself that leaked them. However, as you can see in the video shown above this paragraph, this has been the case, with a video published on an official company account on YouTube. In the teaser, less than 30 seconds, the design and some interesting details of the future watch are revealed.
Regarding the design, we observe a very, very continuous line compared to its predecessor, to the point that it is difficult to distinguish them with the naked eye. But this should not mislead us, since we do find a quite interesting renovation, as we were able to see last August, when a good part of their data was revealed after being listed on both the FCC and Google Play.
Thus, to those new features are added two other, very interesting ones. On the one hand, as soon as the video starts we can see the inscription IP68 on the back of the Google Pixel 2. Let’s remember that in its first generation Google claimed that the watch could withstand up to five atmospheres of pressure, but it did not have any certification in this regard. Now, with this certification, we can know in detail its resistance to both dust and particles and liquids.
On the other hand, an EDA sensor (probably cEDA) is also seen, a technology already used by Fitbit in the past, and which measures changes in heart rate and electrodermal responses in order to infer stress level that we experience in every moment.
