It seems that Google wants to announce a new smartwatch, when the brand will also introduce the Pixel 8 series. The first reports about this have now surfaced. The message about the processor that will be used in the watch.
Google opts for the Snapdragon in the Watch 2
A report has emerged detailing the Google Pixel Watch 2, which is expected to launch in the fall alongside the Pixel 8 series. According to the report, Google’s second-generation smartwatch will move from Samsung’s Exynos chipset to the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon W5.
Whether it’s the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 or Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1, the Pixel Watch 2 will use a 4nm chip with four Cortex-A53 cores, which is a huge improvement over the 10nm Exynos 9110 chip in the previous Pixel Watch, which only had Cortex-A53 cores. The W5+ also has a proprietary co-processor, which should provide a more efficient always-on display, for example.
According to the report, this specification upgrade to the Snapdragon chipset will greatly improve the Pixel Watch 2’s battery life compared to its predecessor. Another big improvement, according to the report, is the addition of specialized health sensors from the Fitbit Sense 2. This includes a continuous electrical activity (cEDA) sensor for measuring stress and a skin temperature sensor, among others.
