One of the leaked images of the Pixel Watch 2 shows support for the Fitbit Sense 2’s “Body Responses” feature, which is supposed to indicate when you’re feeling stressed. While the current Pixel Watch doesn’t have the electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor needed to enable this feature, it looks like the Pixel Watch 2 will include it. EDA sensors measure tiny amounts of sweat on your skin to detect when you’re stressed while taking into account heart rate variability, skin temperature, and other metrics.
Notably, the body responses screen on the new Pixel Watch 2 has a different interface than the Fitbit Sense 2 watch version. The Pixel 2’s new look includes emoji face icons that show what times of day you look happy or stressed. The training screens also appear to be redesigned on the Pixel Watch 2 – the leaked image gives the user a clear indication if they are on target with their heart rate during training. 9to5Google got more details also about Fitbit workouts on the new watch.
We don’t have to wait long to see all the new features coming to the Pixel Watch 2, as the Made by Google event kicks off on Wednesday, October 4 at 10 a.m. ET in New York City. The edge It will be there to capture everything that Google is expected to announce.
