Pixel Watch 2 leaks in a promotional video from Google
Google’s Pixel Watch 2 is not too far away now, which naturally means that we get to know almost all the details about the watch before the presentation thanks to various leaks. The latest major leak is a promo video that can be seen here.
In the video, we learn that the watch will feature Fitbit’s multi-path heart rate monitor, which is said to offer more accurate heart rate measurements even during intense workouts. It will also incorporate Fitbit’s system that can detect stress.
Another new feature is security functions that allow users to set a timer for certain situations. When the timer expires, the watch will prompt users to confirm if they are okay or if they want to start sharing their location or contact emergency services. If there is no response, it will share real-time location and information about the situation with emergency contacts.
There are seven common workouts that the Pixel Watch 2 can detect, and these include running, and outdoor cycling.
Pixel Watch 2 is said to offer 24 hours of battery life with the screen always on. It can be fully charged in just 75 minutes.
On October 4th, Google will officially present its new products.
