Google's new Pixel Watch 2 brings a long list of small upgrades to company's round smartwatch. These include more durable Gorilla Glass 5 cover glass, a new quad-core Qualcomm 5100 processor, better battery life (up to 24 hours with always-on display), faster charging, and new health sensors. The upgraded heart rate sensor is 40% more accurate. It can also now measure skin temperature and skin conductance (cEDA), in addition to oxygen saturation (SpO2). The recycled aluminum housing keeps the same round design and is compatible with bands for the original Pixel watch. The Wear OS 4.0 software gains Safety Check, where you set a timer to check in, and your emergency contacts are notified of your location if you fail to check in. On the LTE version, this feature will work over the cellular connection even if you haven't activated a cellular plan for the watch. Color options are Polished Silver (with Bay Blue or Porcelain band), Champagne Gold (with Hazel band), or Matte Black (with black band). The Wi-Fi version sells for $350 while the LTE version runs $400. It's available for pre-order today and ships October 12th.
