The 15-second teaser video confirms the Pixel Watch 2’s crown button on the side, curved screen, Always on Display, and IP68 rating. We can also see that the strap-locking mechanism is similar to the last gen.
In terms of features and specs, based on the previous leaks and rumours, the Pixel Watch 2 will come with a circular OLED display with curved edges and 383 x 384-pixel resolution. The watch will come with a rotatable crown and two physical buttons on the side. The Watch 2 is tipped to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5+ chipset and offer a large 2GB RAM. The device will come in Wi-Fi as well as LTE variants as seen on the FCC website a few weeks back.
The Pixel Watch 2 is also said to offer a 306mAh battery, which is a slight bump from the first-generation device. In terms of software, the watch should run on the latest Wear OS 4 out of the box. In addition, the smartwatch will have some new software enhancements and features. It is also said to offer four new watch faces Accessible, Arc, Analog Bold, and Bold Digital. Like the last gen, we are also expecting the watch to feature Fitbit integrations.
