Updates include Pixel 8 features and Fitbit refresh
While rivals Apple find themselves locking horns with French authorities over their smartphones, new leaks from within Google have strongly indicated what features their upcoming new Pixel 8 Watch will entail.
The tech giants officially unveil their new product on October 4 at their Made At Google exhibition event in the Big Apple, but despite the supposed secrecy behind the new Google unveiling, the leaks have continued to come.
The latest installment of leaks are implying that Google have included skin temperature monitoring in the Pixel Watch 2 that can actually track menstrual cycles and general health issues. The sensor will even have an EDA (Electro Dermal Activity) sensor that will measure and notify you of perceived stress levels.
It also appears that the new Pixel Watch will up the game on Fitbit integration with an accompanying app that will keep you in touch with heart rate zones by monitoring your BPM.
One of the more interesting and safety-based features on the new watch may be the incorporation of a car crash alert app. What this does is inform you of the nature of the crash you’ve just been involved in using GPS and other technology and will even, if deemed necessary, call 911 for you.
Until Google themselves officially unveil their new watch in October, all this is mere speculation, so stay tuned for more updates as we get them.
