The leaked images of the upcoming Pixel Watch 2 reveal that it will come with support for Fitbit Sense 2’s “Body responses” feature, which detects stress levels. The Pixel Watch 2 will include an electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor that measures sweat on the skin, along with heart rate variability, skin temperature, and other metrics to determine stress levels. This is an improvement over the current Pixel Watch which lacks this feature. Additionally, the Body responses screen on the Pixel Watch 2 has a different interface compared to the Fitbit Sense 2 watch. It displays emoji face icons indicating the wearer’s mood throughout the day, and there are also indications of heart rate during workouts.
The Pixel Watch 2 is expected to be officially unveiled at the Made by Google event on October 4th. The event, taking place in New York City, will showcase all the new features and updates coming to the Pixel Watch 2. The Verge will be covering the event to provide comprehensive coverage of Google’s announcements.
Overall, the Pixel Watch 2’s integration of Fitbit Sense 2’s “Body responses” feature and its improved user interface suggest that it will offer a more advanced and customizable fitness tracking experience compared to its predecessors. With its EDA sensor and redesigned workout screens, the Pixel Watch 2 aims to provide users with more accurate and comprehensive data regarding their stress levels and physical activity.
