Memory Specifications on Pixel 2
Memory is becoming necessary for smartphones as technology improves and the watch uses become more sophisticated. A smartwatch is now becoming a device required to support the functionalities of smartphones. In this case, the Pixel Watch 2 comes packed with 32GB internal memory (ROM) and 2GB RAM (no MicroSD slot). Such memory is necessary for the smartwatch, especially considering its specifications and capabilities to execute several functionalities.
Better Battery Power Management
With the low-power co-processor, the new CPU gives the watch 24 hours of battery life, even with an always-on display. Combined with a faster charging rate that powers your clock to 50% in just 30 minutes, six your Pixel Watch 2 can support your activities from day to night.
Health Insights on Google Pixel Watch 2
All-New Heart Rate Sensor
Pixel Watch 2 has three new sensors to give you deeper insights into your health. Working alongside Google’s improved AI heart rate algorithm, an all-new heart rate sensor with numerous LEDs produces a more accurate heart rate reading than ever. It’s up to 40% more precise for vigorous activities like HIIT, spinning and rowing. This means you will also get more accurate readings for other essential health metrics — from calories burned and Active Zone Minutes to Daily Readiness Score and sleep.
The New Continuous Electrodermal Activity (Ceda) Sensor
Google has also brought Fitbit’s Body Response feature to its Pixel Watch 2, powered by a new continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor. The new sensor can point to possible signs of stress using a machine learning algorithm incorporating heart rate, heart rate variability and skin temperature.
When the algorithm picks up on physical indicators of positive and negative stress, including excitement, the Body Response feature will send you a notification. It will then prompt you to reflect on how you feel or take action to reduce your stress, like guided breathing or a mindfulness session. Reflecting on these moments may help you identify patterns to anticipate potential stress and plan.
Skin Temperature Sensor/ skin conductance
Once you are ready to turn in, Google’s new skin temperature sensor tracks at night to reveal insights into your sleep and monitor for changes in your overall wellness.
You can get other important health and fitness information using just your voice. Open the Google Assistant app and ask, “How did I sleep last night?” to get your daily Sleep Score or weekly average or ask to start a workout. The new Google Assistant tile allows you to set shortcuts for your most-used queries.
Improved Fitness Tools
Heart Rate Zone Coaching and Pace Training features
It is easier to train with Pixel Watch 2, too. The new Heart Rate Zone Coaching and Pace Training features can help you stay on track with your workout goals — like alerting you to a heart rate zone change during a HIIT workout or offering real-time feedback on your pace goals during marathon training.
Meanwhile, automatic workout start and stop reminders are available for seven exercises, including running and outdoor cycling, to help you stick to your schedule. Not to mention, all the Fitbit features from the original Pixel Watch will still be on the Pixel Watch 2:
