New specifications for the upcoming Google Pixel Watch have been shared, including that it will apparently feature a co-processor to help out the Exynos 9110 with certain tasks. In addition, the Pixel Watch is expected to come with more RAM than the Galaxy Watch4 and support blood oxygen (SpO2) measurement.

A few more details have been posted about the Google Pixel Watch, with 9to5Google supplying the latest information. It had already been reported that the Pixel Watch would be powered by 2018’s Samsung Exynos 9110 SoC, but for those concerned that the somewhat dated chip could struggle with 2022’s demands, it appears there will be a co-processor in play to aid with the workload. While the source does not mention a specific designation, the extra part could end up being related to Google’s Tensor SoC in some way.

If that wasn’t enough to please skeptics wondering if Google is doing enough to bring out a powerful Wear OS watch to distract the lay-purchasers from the glare of the Apple Watch Series 7, then the promise of a mighty amount of RAM could do the trick. Unfortunately, a precise figure is not given, although it is said to be more than the 1.5 GB offered by the Galaxy Watch4. So, 2 GB seems to be the likely amount for the Pixel Watch, which would be double the offering the Series 7 device from Apple contains.

There seems to be a promise that the Google Pixel Watch will come with 32 GB storage that would also emulate the best out of Cupertino if fulfilled. The Android-based smartwatch will reportedly sport a heart-rate sensor and also give its wearer the opportunity to check their blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) and take ECG measurements. Other general health-related and fitness-related features (via Fitbit), such as sleep quality monitoring and step counting, are more than likely to be included in the Pixel Watch’s numerous selling points.
