The Pixel Watch 2 offers the user information on their health and physical activity in addition to 40 sports modes. This information includes a daily readiness score, a sleep score, a chart of active zone minutes, and a sleep profile.
The 306mAh battery within the Pixel Watch 2 is said to provide up to 24 hours of battery life with an always-on display. The new Pixel Watch 2 does away with wireless charging in favor of contact pins, in contrast to the first Pixel Watch, which arrived with support for it. Included in the package is a USB Type-C charging cable with four contact connectors.
From the original Pixel Watch, a built-in microphone and speaker, a digital crown with haptic feedback, and a side button remain. Both a Wi-Fi and an LTE version of the Pixel Watch 2 are offered. Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.0 are included in both versions. Additionally, it is 5 ATM water resistant. According to Google, the watch’s 31-gram body is entirely constructed of recyclable aluminum. Fluoroelastomer and a soft-touch coating are present when the bands are delivered.
