It’s all about top tech and great style with the Google Pixel Watch 2

by James Wilkinson

Designed with comfort and durability in mind, the Google Pixel Watch 2 is engineered to deliver personalised health, fitness, safety, and productivity to get the most out of your day.

A lighter 100% recycled aluminium housing, 24 hours always-on display and just 75 minutes required for full charge, the Pixel Watch 2 is easy to wear all day and all night.

An all-new multi-path heart-rate sensor and Google AI deliver the most advanced heart-rate tracking, which powers novel health and fitness experiences like sleep tracking, high and low heart rate notifications, and Daily Readiness Score.

Google on-wrist experiences are even more seamless with Gmail and Calendar apps for easy management of your agenda and inbox. And the At a Glance watch face complication delivers information when you need it, like the weather each morning and the traffic to your next destination.

With the addition of a body-response sensor and skin temperature sensor, the Pixel Watch 2 also now has Fitbit’s most advanced stress-management features and encourages you to log your current mood and provides suggestions for an intervention like a guided breathing exercise or a walk.

Body-response tracking also shows trends over time to help you understand potential patterns and make meaningful changes to your routine.

The Pixel Watch 2 comes in four colour combinations – Polished Silver/Bay, Polished Silver/Porcelain, Matte Black/Obsidian and Champagne Gold/Hazel – and is a modern timepiece with an innovative design that delivers a fully featured smartwatch.

Plus, a robust accessory assortment includes new Metal Slim and Active Sport bands so you can customise your watch to match your style, dress it up or hit the gym.

Google Pixel Watch 2 is priced from AU$549 (Bluetooth/ Wi-Fi) and AU$649 for the 4G LTE version and is available from the Google Store and selected retailers such as JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, Harvey Norman, Telstra and Optus.
