The Google Pixel Watch 2 LTE GC3G8 is the improved successor to the Google Pixel Watch GWT9R. The latest Google smartwatch is available in two variants 4G LTE + Bluetooth/WiFi or Bluetooth/WiFi. The Google Pixel Watch 2 LTE GC3G8 is based on Wear OS 4.0, like its predecessor GWT9R. The device is 50m/5ATM water resistant (IP68), and ECG certified. The watch supports mobile network connection, WiFi 4, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and GPS connection. Google Pixel Watch 2 LTE GC3G8 supports a new charging type, unlike commonly used wireless charging, this device supports a pin-based charging system.
