With a host of innovative features and a refined design, the Pixel Watch 2 is set to be a game-changer for tech enthusiasts and fitness enthusiasts alike.
Google Pixel Watch 2 boasts a sleek and environmentally conscious design, crafted from 100% recycled aluminum, a departure from its stainless steel predecessor.

Its pebble-like smoothness and curved AMOLED screen give it a distinctly modern aesthetic.
The 1.2-inch AMOLED screen of the Pixel Watch 2 delivers vivid visuals with a resolution of 383 × 384 pixels, which is down from the previous generation’s resolution of 450 × 450, and the battery, a tough decision to save battery. The watch retains its 41mm dial and offers a range of strap options, including a plastic active band, a metal mesh band, a metal chain band, and a thin metal band, allowing users to customize their look and feel.
Under the hood, Google Pixel Watch 2 is driven by a Qualcomm Snapdragon W5+ Gen1 chip, a significant upgrade from its predecessor’s Exynos 9110, ensuring smooth and responsive performance. With 2GB of RAM and a 5ATM/IP68 protection rating, it’s ready for any adventure, even underwater.
One standout feature of the Pixel Watch 2 is its UWB (Ultra-Wideband) capability, providing unparalleled tracking accuracy for other UWB-enabled devices. This technology surpasses Bluetooth in accuracy and directionality, enhancing the user experience.
Google Pixel Watch 2 offers a remarkable 24-hour battery life, with the added benefit of improved charging speeds. Charging has also been revamped, transitioning from contactless wireless charging to a more secure 4-contact method, ensuring reliability and fewer heat-ups.
Google’s commitment to health and safety is evident in the Pixel Watch 2’s array of sensors. It can monitor heart rate, body temperature, and body response, providing users with valuable health insights. The watch automatically recognizes seven common exercise programs and offers workout start and stop reminders. Safety features include fall detection, emergency SOS, and heart rate zone training, ensuring peace of mind for wearers.
The Pixel Watch 2 comes in two variants: Bluetooth at $349 and the LTE version at $399. With its impressive feature set and stylish design, it’s set to be a top contender in the smartwatch market. The Indian version of Google Pixel Watch is priced at 39,900 rupees.
