Stress sensor in Pixel Watch 2
We have gathered from the report that the Pixel Watch 2 can feature the same sensors as the Fitbit 2’s health sensors.
The continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor which tracks the day’s stress and helps manage it and the skin temperature sensor are some of the major features that are expected to feature in the Pixel Watch 2.
Chip upgrade in the Pixel Watch 2
From the report we come to know that the Pixel Watch 2 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset from the latest “W5” generation. We aren’t really sure about what changes or customisations the chipset would bring in for the new Google wearable.
Google has always used the Samsung Exynos for its watches, so the sudden shift came as a shock. It was expected that for Pixel Watch 2, Google will be relying on 5nm W920 which has been used in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and 5.

The change in chipset of the wearable can also lead to change in the chipset of future Pixel phones. But, it’s too early to speculate anything as of now and we should wait to experience the changes once the watch is out.
Battery changes in Pixel Watch 2
Google is aiming towards a better battery life for the Pixel watch 2. As mentioned in the report, they are looking forward to over a day’s usage while the AOD is enabled.
But apart from that, people can also look forward to a better life by making some changes in the settings and taking precautions for power conservation.
Expected price of Pixel Watch 2
From everything we can gather online, the Pixel Watch 2 should be priced around the ₹30,000 price mark, might get priced a bit cheaper as well if Google wants to undercut the competition from Apple and Samsung in a big way.
These are the expected major upgrades that are likely to feature on the Google Pixel Watch 2 and as previous rumours have stated, this would be launched alongside the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro later this year.
