Based on the previous Pixel hardware release schedule, Google should announce the Pixel Watch 2 alongside the Pixel 8 this October. The upcoming smartwatch was featured in a few leaks that mostly showed off the hardware. Now, another fresh entry has revealed the watch's updated interface, including exclusive watch faces and dynamic themes.

The bunch of Pixel Watch 2 watch faces was shared by Android Authority while citing an internal Google source. It seems there are four new categories that were added via Wear OS 4 and will be known as accessible, arc, digital bold, and analog bold. It is also believed these are exclusive to the 2nd gen smartwatch and it remains unclear whether it will be shipped as an update to the original Pixel Watch (review).

The first one, which is aptly named accessible, looks to feature a simple layout with the options of just time, linear, circular, and vertically stacked time and date. On the other hand, the arc is composed of an analog-like time with variations of complications like steps, battery percentage, and calendar, among others.

As for the third and fourth watch faces, both are bold types that consist of digital and analog variants. It appears you can have different reactions to the types of touch here. What's also visible is the dynamic theme once a particular category is applied. However, the news outlet mentioned that this mode is also present in the system and boot animation, which is similar to the way themes are applied on Pixel handsets and the new Pixel Tablet (review).

Beyond the watch faces, the Pixel Watch 2 is rumored to sport an aluminum chassis that will replace the stainless steel material, reducing the weight of the watch. At the same time, it is tipped to be powered by a new Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 chipset, which should boost its battery life.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
