In a recent revelation, Google seems poised to make a significant splash in the Asia Pacific tech market with its upcoming Pixel 8 Pro. The tech giant is reportedly offering an enticing preorder bonus that’s sure to grab attention.
- Google’s Pixel 8 Pro preorder may come with a free Pixel Watch 2.
- Kamila Wojciechowska, a known leaker, unveils promotional images hinting at the deal.
- Rumors suggest a price increase for the Pixel 8 Pro, but the bonus might offset the hike.
- The Pixel Watch 2 boasts features like 24-hour battery life, stress detection, and more.
- The official announcement is anticipated at the October 4th Made by Google event.
According to promotional materials, those who preorder the Pixel 8 Pro could receive the Pixel Watch 2 at no additional cost. This move by Google might be a strategic response to the rumored price surge for the Pixel 8 Pro, which is speculated to start at $999. Given that the original Pixel Watch’s non-cellular variant is priced at $349.99, this deal essentially brings down the effective cost of the Pixel 8 Pro to around $650, if the price rumors hold true.
A promotional video leak suggests that the new watch will retain the 24-hour battery life seen in its predecessor. Additionally, it will introduce features like stress and skin temperature detection, thanks to the inclusion of a continuous electrodermal activity sensor, akin to the one in the Fitbit Sense 2.
Moreover, fitness enthusiasts can look forward to the Pixel Watch 2’s automatic workout detection for various activities, including running and outdoor cycling – a feature absent in the original Pixel Watch.
With the Made by Google launch event scheduled for October 4th, tech aficionados in the Asia Pacific region are eagerly awaiting official announcements. The potential combination of the Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2 could reshape the dynamics of the wearable tech market in the region.
