Google has released the new Pixel Watch 2 and Pixel Buds Pro with a range of updated features to round out the updated Google Pixel ecosystem.
Also unveiled today were the latest Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones.
GOOGLE PIXEL WATCH 2 $549 (Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) and $649 (LTE)
The Google Pixel Watch 2 hasn’t changed much design-wise but there are plenty of changes on the inside including a new multi-path heart rate sensor for more accurate tracking of your health, fitness and sleep.
There is also a new body-response sensor and skin temperature sensor so the Pixel Watch 2 can also manage your stress levels as well.
When exercising the watch now has automatic start and stop reminders for seven common workouts like running, cycling and more.
There’s also Heart Zone Training that can coach you to train at the correct intensity to help up you meet your fitness goals.
Pixel Watch 2 now supports features like Fall Detection and Emergency SOS while Safety Check lets you schedule a timer for when you expect to be home.
When the timer expires, you are prompted to confirm you got home safely if you haven’t already done it.
Pixel Watch 2 comes in four colour combinations – polished Silver/Bay, polished Silver/Porcelain, matte Black/Obsidian and Champagne Gold/Hazel.
PIXEL BUDS PRO 2 – $299
The latest Pixel Buds Pro 2 will soon have Bluetooth Super Wideband via a software update which offers even more bandwidth for voice calls and for your music to sound clearer.
Also coming soon is Clear Calling on Pixel so you can be heard clearly on a call with the suppression of ambient noise around you.
The Pixel Buds Pro 2 also have your hearing health in mind and can keep track of the volume you’re using to listen to music and suggest times when you need to lower the volume.
Conversation Detection uses Google AI to detect your voice and then immediately pause your music and switch to Transparency Mode until you stop talking and then the music resumes.
They still have impressive active noise cancellation using Google’s integrated system, custom processor and custom algorithm.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro 2 will be available in two new colours – Bay and Porcelain.
