Everything you know about the Google Pixel Watch 2

Yes, it's coming to India

Before you read ahead, yes, the Google Pixel Watch 2 is coming India. That's confirmed by Google India's official Twitter (oops, X) account.

If a recent leak is to be believed, it's hooking us up with a bunch of fresh watch faces to choose from. From simple and sleek styles for those who like to keep it chill, to more fancy and intricate designs that'll satisfy all you functionality-hungry peeps. Word on the street is that you'll get four new customisable watch faces to play around with. Each watch face has multiple variants to give users even more personalization options. Have a look! 


The first watch face on the block – Google is calling it "Accessible." It's all about keeping things simple and easy to read. No fuss, no frills, just pure minimalistic goodness! There are four variants to pick from. Each of 'em rocks a different layout, so you can choose the one that suits your vibe the best.

1) Circular:  A clean, single-line digital time displayed right above a neat circular complication slot. 

2) Linear: A single-line digital time with the date sitting right above it.

3) Stacked Time: Now, this one's got a cool twist! Digital time on display with the hours stacked neatly above the minutes and there's a single complication on the side. 

4) Just Time: Hey, sometimes, all you need is time, right? And that's what the "Just Time" watch face is all about - a clean and straightforward stacked digital time.


If you're all about utility and customising your watch just the way you like it then this one's made for you! "Arc" is all about options, and boy, does it give you plenty! You get to choose from different indices. Plus, there's the variant selection feature that lets you control how many complications and elements you want to see on your watch face. You can also toggle the second hand on or off, depending on your mood. In total, you get six variants to pick from. 

Bold Digital

Just like those lock screen clocks on the latest Pixel phones running Android 14, "Bold Digital" watch face is all about making a statement with its bold, overlapping font and eye-catching colours that change up for different numbers. You've got two variants to choose from – Just Time to keep things simple and focused and Radial if you're up for a bit more flair with three circular complication slots. 

Analogue Bold

The Analogue Bold watch face is about that classic analogue charm with a twist of boldness! Unlike Arc, it has a filled hour hand and big, bold numerals, no matter which configuration you choose. For customisation you get a couple of variants to play around with. First, you can decide how many complication slots you want to see on your watch face - anywhere from zero to four. Then, there's the option to display the current date, you can also configure the dashes around the clock and choose whether the numbers should be rounded.

We've got a glimpse of some watch faces but let's hope it’s just the tip of the iceberg!  Ohh did we tell you, you can also expect some dynamic theming action? Just like Material You, it means your smartwatch is gonna look stylish with personalised themes to match your taste and mood. 

A couple of other leaks indicate Google might be waving goodbye to the Exynos processor and embracing the Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 series. Now we are not sure if it would be the standard Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC or the Snapdragon W5 Plus Gen 1. Both of these are built on a 4nm architecture and boast four A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. Most importantly this swap could open up a possibility for significantly improved battery life. 

In terms of fitness tracking, it appears that the Pixel Watch 2 will continue to benefit from the integration of Fitbit's toolkit and companion app. In a previous update in June, the Pixel Watch gained the capability to track blood oxygen levels, which is expected to carry over to the upcoming Pixel Watch 2. Moreover, the Pixel Watch 2 might just have a way to detect your stress levels too. A Google blog post showcased how Fitbit Sense 2 utilises a machine learning algorithm to track stress in real-time, recognizing specific indicators. And you betcha, the Pixel Watch 2 could rock a similar feature. 

According to a report from Tomsguide, Google is making a change in the frame material. It could possibly mean goodbye to stainless steel and hello to lightweight aluminium! Aluminium is not only cheaper but also way lighter compared to stainless steel. So the Pixel Watch 2's weight could drop from 1.26 ounces. Keep stuffing for more info on Google’s next-gen wearable.
