With Google I/O proper across the nook, it’s fully attainable we’ll get an early preview of the Pixel Watch 2 throughout the keynote subsequent week. Google first teased the unique Pixel Watch at I/O 2022 final Could earlier than totally unveiling it the next October. A small tease at this 12 months’s I/O isn’t assured, however it’s additionally not out of the query.

Whereas this information is thrilling for the Pixel Watch 2, it additionally offers us a greater thought of how Google plans to deal with the Pixel Watch sequence going ahead.

So, what will we wish to see within the Pixel Watch 2? A number of issues! Google nailed the consolation and fundamental health-tracking points of the unique Pixel Watch, however there’s so a lot it could actually enhance with a successor.

The largest factor the Pixel Watch 2 wants to deal with is battery life. The Pixel Watch fails to make it by means of a full day of use in our testing, and that’s unacceptable for a smartwatch at present. Enhancing battery life is simpler mentioned than performed, however Google has a number of choices.

For starters, it might use a more recent chipset. The Pixel Watch’s Exynos processor has been outdated for some time now, which doesn’t assist the battery life scenario one bit. With Qualcomm’s way more highly effective — and environment friendly — Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 platform out there, Google has a straightforward resolution to this drawback. Rising the Pixel Watch’s case dimension (or providing two dimension choices) would additionally permit for a bigger battery capability.

However battery life isn’t the one factor. We’d additionally like to see the Pixel Watch 2 ship with a drastically smaller show bezel, provide extra sturdy health options, and perhaps strive providing a special-edition mannequin to compete with the Galaxy Watch 5 Professional and Apple Watch Extremely.

Will any of that really occur? We will’t say for positive fairly but, however with a fall launch apparently taking place, we shouldn’t have too for much longer to attend earlier than we be taught extra.
