Top 3 reasons I'd buy an Apple Watch Ultra 2 ahead of the Series 9

Apple’s Wonderlust event seems a distant memory now, but with Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 now here, you may be wondering which Apple Watch to pick up. We’d estimate many prospective Apple Watch buyers don’t upgrade every year, meaning there’s every chance you could be moving from a Series 4 or 5 to a Series 9, or an Ultra 2. There really is no such thing as a bad Apple Watch, but this year’s mainline entry lacks big new features. In fact, we’d argue that if you’re desperate for a new Apple Watch this year, we’d have to opt for the Ultra 2 (with some caveats we’ll touch on soon) — or its predecessor. Here’s why. Before we begin: It’s worth noting that there’s a $400 gap between the 41mm Series 9 and the Ultra 2, something we’re well aware of. Naturally, your budget will likely dictate which model you go for. There are also plenty of similarities between the two - the Series 9 and the Ultra 2 both add the new “Double Tap” gesture and offer the same S9 chip. Still, there are some reasons we’d go for the Ultra 2 — or even the Ultra 1 — if you can. Battery life Our biggest issue with the Apple Watch was one we felt was finally about to be rectified at the Wonderlust event. With Apple introducing its S9 chip, we waited with bated breath for the reveal that it would be more power-efficient and extend battery life. Sadly, no such announcement came, meaning we’re still waiting for a jump in battery life. We’ll be the first to acknowledge that the Apple Watch does a lot more than most fitness trackers and smartwatches when it comes to offering a variety of apps, constant communication with the iPhone, and much more, but we’ve been on the same day and a half battery life since it debuted in 2015. On the Ultra, battery life is essentially doubled, and while that does require a chunkier chassis, we’d still rather that - especially if you’re interested in sleep tracking. ...

ICC War Crimes Tribunal Paralyzed Following Major Hacking Attack on Digital Systems

The International Criminal Court (ICC) finds itself entangled in a web of digital chaos as it grapples with the aftermath of a major hacking incident. Reuters reports that the Dutch-based ICC, renowned for prosecuting war crimes and crimes against humanity, now faces severe limitations on its digital operations, casting a shadow over ongoing trials and investigations. Cybersecurity Incident Unveiled The situation began when the ICC revealed a "cybersecurity incident" on Tuesday, sending shockwaves through the institution. Since then, details have been scarce, with officials remaining tight-lipped about the nature and origin of the attack. What is clear, however, is the profound impact it has had on the ICC's core functions. Digital Paralysis Grips the ICC As of now, the ICC has been forced to disconnect most of its systems that can access the internet. This drastic measure means that employees are left without access to email, and documents that were once just a click away are now inaccessible for those not working on-site. It is a disruption of seismic proportions for an institution tasked with the weighty responsibility of delivering justice on an international scale. Trial Impacts Reuters reports that one of the most immediate casualties of this digital breakdown is the trial of Patrice-Edouard Ngaissona and Alfred Yekatom, who stand accused of leading militias responsible for attacks on Muslim civilians in the Central African Republic. The proceedings resumed on Thursday, but the ICC's livestream was conspicuously absent, and the galleries, typically bustling with the public and journalists, were eerily silent. Defense Lawyers Scramble The situation is dire for the defense teams, like that of Geert-Jan Knoops, who represents one of the defendants. Knoops expressed concerns about whether the hack had exposed sensitive documents, including potentially confidential information about protected witnesses. To continue their work, lawyers are resorting to old-school methods of information exchange, such as USB flash drives and paper binders, delivering vital data personally from office to office. The pace has slowed considerably, leaving defense attorneys grappling with uncertainty about the duration of this disruption. Russian President Putin While the ICC grapples with this unprecedented hack, it is worth noting that the court had issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this year. The warrant alleges his involvement in illegally deporting children from Ukraine, a claim vehemently denied by the Kremlin. This case underscores the ICC's far-reaching jurisdiction and the potential geopolitical implications of its investigations. Beyond Putin's case, the ICC is currently investigating alleged war crimes in several hotspots, including Ukraine, Sudan, and Afghanistan. The outcomes of these inquiries could have profound consequences for international diploma

Tesla Cybertruck Spotted with New Digital Camouflage Wrap

A new Tesla Cybertruck is spotted in the wild, donning a never-before-seen colorful wrap. The Tesla Cybertruck has been making waves in the electric vehicle (EV) industry since Elon Musk teased its impending launch. With its futuristic design and stainless steel body, the Cybertruck is hard to miss. However, lately, Tesla has been experimenting with an unexpected twist: wraps and camouflage. Colorful Camouflage: New Tesla Cybertruck Trend? Tesla has traditionally steered clear of wraps and camouflage for its prototype vehicles. Yet, the Cybertruck seems to be an exception. Notably, it has appeared in various wraps recently, showcasing a wide array of designs. According to Electrek, the most recent sighting of a Tesla Cybertruck revealed a striking departure from its signature stainless steel look. Wrapped in vibrant colors, this Cybertruck certainly caught the eye. With the Cybertruck being famously unpaintable due to its stainless steel exterior, wraps are emerging as the sole option to give it a unique appearance. ...

BMW stops selling all its motorcycles in US except for electric motorcycles

BMW Motorrad has issued a “stop sale” notice for all of its internal combustion engine motorcycles in the US. The notice covers both new and used models, and specifically lists the BMW CE 04, an electric motorbike, as the only model still for sale from the company’s dealers. The issue appears to be related to the fuel system in BMW’s motorcycles, and is likely to be a problem that has spanned several generations of the bikes based on the stop sale notice covering all model years. The BMW CE 04 is the company’s only electric model currently for sale in North America. The 31 kW (42 hp) bike is best classified as a maxi-scooter, though it takes on a futuristic design and lacks the typical deep step-through frame of most scooters. It began production roughly two years ago, when there was little in the US electric scooter market to compete with its 75 mph (121 km/h) performance. Now similarly capable electric scooters have begun to enter the market, though few can match BMW’s design chops. The CE 04 will soon be joined by BMWs next electric motorbike, the BMW CE 02, though that model is not yet available in North American dealerships.

T-Mobile switching to Google’s Jibe for RCS in Messages app

In addition to Get the Messages continuing with iPager, T-Mobile announced today that its RCS offering is now powered by Google’s Jibe platform. Carriers can either have Google power the RCS backend/servers or use their own infrastructure. T-Mobile did both depending on the Android device: “On devices that state, “Chat features from Google provided by Jibe Mobile.”, this means Google is the Advanced Messaging provider for Messages by Google on the device.” “On devices that state, “Chat features from Google powered by T-Mobile.”, this means T-Mobile is the Advanced Messaging provider for Messages by Google on the device.” You can check by opening settings in Google Messages and then the “RCS chats” menu. The provider is noted at the bottom of this page. T-Mobile said this morning that “customers are getting an upgraded Messages by Google experience, now powered by RCS and Google’s Jibe platform.” This will result in them getting “all new features instantly,” which is something Google previously touted about its approach. The other upside is Rich Business Messaging (RBM) for things like airlines sending your boarding passes in a text conversation. For example, Google at I/O in May demoed being able to use Messages RCS to directly check-in and save Google Wallet passes. Google’s Sanaz Ahari added that they are “excited to deliver a secure and delightful messaging experience to all T-Mobile customers.” This follows AT&T switching to Google’s Jibe platform in June and Vodafone earlier this year. Switching to Jibe might help reduce send/receive errors especially when communication across carriers. ...

NASA says there is an asteroid it’s monitoring that could potentially impact Earth

According to scientists, Bennu will make a close flyby of Earth in 2135 with a chance of impacting our planet in 2182. “During the flyby, there is an extremely small chance that Bennu will pass through a gravitational keyhole – a region of space that would set it on just the right path to impact Earth,” NASA shared. The research team said it is difficult to determine the odds of this happening, but new data from NASA’s Osiris-Rex spacecraft have allowed scientists to better model how Bennu’s orbit will evolve over time. Research from the Osiris-Rex science team gives Bennu a .037% chance of impacting Earth on Sept. 24, 2182. The Associated Press reports that Bennu was discovered in 1999 and is believed to be a remnant of a much larger asteroid that collided with another space rock. Scientists say it’s roughly the height of the Empire State Building, and its black rugged surface is packed with boulders. Bennu orbits the sun every 14 months while rotating every four hours. Scientists believe Bennu holds leftovers from the solar system’s formation 4.5 billion years ago. This weekend, a NASA spacecraft will reportedly fly by Earth and drop off what is expected to be at least a cupful of rubble that was grabbed from Bennu.

India's moon lander and rover are about to wake up from a nearly month-long nap as the sun rises on

Right now, there are two historic robots fast asleep near the moon's south pole — India's Chandrayaan-3 moon lander and its adorable sidekick lunar rover. But nap time is nearly over — hopefully. The two robotic explorers are set to wake up around September 22, according to the Indian Space Research Organization, which landed them on the moon in a historic first in August. Both ISRO's Vikram lander and Pragyan rover run on solar power. Therefore, they need sunlight to charge their batteries and operate their scientific instruments. They went to sleep in early September because night set in and their batteries drained. "The solar panel is oriented to receive the light at the next sunrise expected on September 22, 2023. The receiver is kept on," ISRO wrote on X, formerly Twitter. However, despite high hopes, there is a chance the historic robots won't wake up. Nighttime temperatures on the moon can dip to as low as -334 degrees Fahrenheit, according to NASA, and India doesn't have access to technology that can withstand such cold, Pallava Bagla, an author who has written about India's space exploration, told Al Jazeera. Chandrayaan-3 mission complete Even if ISRO's lunar lander and rover don't wake up, the robots have already done what they were designed to do — explore the lunar south pole region for the first 14 days after touchdown. Within just those two weeks, the two robots made some important scientific discoveries. For example, the moon rover confirmed the presence of sulphur in the lunar south pole region. Moreover, preliminary analyses suggested the presence of aluminum, calcium, iron, chromium, titanium, and a possible moonquake. India is the fourth country — after the US, Russia, and China — to land on the moon, and the first to ever land near the lunar south pole. The lunar south pole region is of particular interest because it contains water ice. Water ice, or H2O, could eventually be mined and broken down into oxygen for breathing as well as hydrogen and oxygen for rocket fuel. India's lunar lander and rover are the first to study the south pole region up-close and sample it directly. So their reawakening is of great interest to scientists as well as companies who want to build a base on the moon. "So far, all margins are looking good and we are confident of the lander and rover coming back to life when night ends," mission operations director M. Srikanth told The Times of India. "If that happens, that will be a bonus and in case that cannot be achieved, the mission is still complete." ...

Exquisite spider fossils from Australia offer clues to their evolution

Two fossilised spiders have been found entombed in iron-rich sediments at a recently discovered site in New South Wales, Australia. One is the second biggest fossil spider that has ever been uncovered, and it has been identified as a new species of brush-footed trapdoor spider, named Megamonodontium mccluskyi. Only a handful of ancient spider remains have been found in Australia. “There’s no shortage of spiders living in Australia today, but the fossil record is nearly blank,” says Matthew McCurry at the Australian Museum Research Institute, who led the study on the new species. “And it’s rare to find specimens that contain such exquisite detail as these. Both these factors mean we stand to learn a lot from the new finds.” The new species is just a centimetre long – relatively small by modern standards, but larger than all but one other fossil spider found to date. The scarcity of large spiders in the fossil record is partly linked to how most of them became fossilised. Many spiders have been found encased in amber after getting stuck in tree resin, from which larger spiders could more easily escape. The size and shape of the legs, as well as the telltale hairs that give these “brush-footed” trapdoor spiders their name, helped classify the creature. It is the first fossil of this family that has ever been found. ...

Kawasaki Unveils Ninja e-1, Z e-1 Electric Motorcycle Specs, Release Dates: Will They Live Up to the

Kawasaki has finally pulled the curtain back on its highly anticipated foray into the electric motorcycle market. Meet the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1, the electrified siblings of the iconic Ninja and Z series, designed to cater to the entry-level segment. However, some reports raise the question: Do their specs and features match the hype? Will they revolutionize the electric motorcycle industry? Performance and Power Surge First things first: the heart of these machines. The Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 are tailored for the equivalent of 125cc internal combustion engine (ICE) bikes, making them accessible to a wide range of riders. TopGear tells us that both bikes are equipped with a brushless motor rated at 6.7hp (9kW) with a compelling twist - the ability to momentarily unleash a maximum of 12hp when you need that extra burst of speed. These bikes may not break speed records but promise a respectable top speed of around 62mph. However, Kawasaki has thrown a curveball into the mix with an 'E-boost' feature - a thrilling boost in speed for 15 seconds. Battery Innovation and Range One of the standout features of the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 is their battery setup. Twin removable batteries power these bikes, offering a combined range of up to 44 miles on a single charge. Before you scoff at the seemingly modest range, here is the game-changer: swapping batteries. There is no need to wait around for a lengthy recharge; simply change the batteries and keep riding. TopSpeed tells us that each battery takes approximately 3.7 hours to charge fully, and with the ability to carry spares, range anxiety becomes a thing of the past. Kawasaki has not disclosed anything about battery capacity or range on a single charge, but Electrek reports that neither is expected to be very high. Removable batteries limit the capacity of what can be carried; therefore, do not anticipate these to be long-distance batteries. Meanwhile, charging options include a dedicated docking station for easy battery placement or an off-board charger unit linked via an under-seat socket. Additionally, the advanced Li-Ion batteries come with built-in charge indicators and a symmetrical design for seamless placement within the bikes. There is even a lockable stowage area above the batteries for added practicality. Innovative Riding Modes and Walk Mode Kawasaki has designed these electric motorcycles for an effortless riding experience. Both models feature riding modes, 'Road' and 'Eco,' catering to different preferences and scenarios. But the real surprise is the 'Walk Mode,' a feature rarely seen in the motorcycle world. Need to maneuver in tight spaces or park with precision? These bikes can creep along at walking pace in both forward and reverse directions, making parking a breeze. Styling and Design Visually, the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 boast a familiar yet refreshed look. The standout feature here is the striking silver colorway, adorn

Tesla Model 3’s unique capability from being stranded after having 0 range

ByJoey KlenderPosted on September 19, 2023 Tesla vehicles feature a unique capability that recently saved a Model 3 from being stranded on the road after depleting all of its range, and it did not have to visit a Supercharger. One of the more useful features of Tesla vehicles is its regenerative braking, which uses the energy produced from slowing the car down to combat some of the range loss that is caused by everyday driving. The vehicle simply stores that energy and retransmits it back to the battery pack, which can help drivers accumulate several additional miles of driving distance, all by using the brake pedal. Teslas are not the only vehicles to use it, and they are far from the first cars to equip it. However, their use of a regenerative braking feature comes in handy more often than hybrid vehicles, as it can keep a trip going, potentially saving the driver from needing roadside assistance. While the most recent instance did not result in the owner not needing roadside assistance, the regenerative braking feature helped to accumulate some of the car’s range without it needing a visit to the Supercharger, and it accumulated enough range to get home in just a few miles: It is important to note that this is technically a loophole in the regenerative braking system. In the past, other owners have used this as a trick to gain a bit of range to avoid being stranded on the side of the road. However, it is not a recommended practice by any means, especially by Tesla’s standards. “NEVER TRANSPORT YOUR VEHICLE WITH THE TIRES IN A POSITION WHERE THEY CAN SPIN. DOING SO CAN LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE AND OVERHEATING. IN RARE CASES EXTREME OVERHEATING MAY CAUSE THE SURROUNDING COMPONENTS TO IGNITE,” Tesla’s owners manual for the Model 3 says, explicitly stating these directions in all capital letters. “A flatbed truck or comparable transport vehicle is the recommended method of transporting Model 3. The vehicle can face either direction when using a flatbed,” the automaker continues. If it cannot be towed on a flatbed, Tesla recommends using a dolly and wheel lifts to keep the wheels from spinning. ...

Artist ordered to repay museum $76K after submitting blank canvases titled ‘Take the Money and Run’

Jens Haaning was supposed to create works of art with the 530,000 Danish krone ($76,000) lent to him by a museum, but instead he took the money and ran in the name of art. Now, after almost two years of litigation, a Copenhagen court ruled on Monday that the artist must return nearly all of the cash. In 2021 the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, in Denmark’s Jutland region, loaned Haaning the money to create updated versions of two earlier works — frames filled with banknotes depicting the average annual salaries of an Austrian and a Dane — for an exhibition on the future of labor. Instead, the artist sent the museum two empty frames entitled “Take the Money and Run,” saying he had created new, “better” pieces to fit the exhibition’s theme. The conceptual artist said the piece was a commentary on low wages, and that his breach of contract was part of the work. He told CNN at the time: “I saw, from my artistic point of view, that I could create a much better piece for them than what they could imagine.” He added: “I don’t see that I have stolen money… I have created an art piece, which is maybe 10 or 100 times better than what we had planned. What is the problem?” Haaning said the new artwork invited people to reflect on social structures and institutions like religion and marriage. “And if needed… take the money and run,” he added. Despite its protestations, the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art exhibited Haaning’s empty canvases alongside a print-out of an email in which he explained his actions. 8 artworks that made us question the value of art Haaning’s empty canvases are part of a genre of controversial works that question the value of art itself — including Maurizio Cattelan taping a banana to a wall and Banksy shredding a painting at auction. In 1958, conceptual artist Yves Klein exhibited an empty room to thousands of people. But regardless of his pieces’ intent, Copenhagen City Court ruled against Haaning, saying he was “obliged” to return the loaned money, minus 40,000 krone ($5,730) in artist and display fees. The court said “Take the Money and Run” was “deficient,” compared to what was outlined in his contract with the Kunsten Museum, as he had agreed to deliver two different pieces. The ruling also dismissed a counter-claim made by Haaning, who alleged that the museum had infringed on the work’s copyright. The artist has meanwhile been ordered to pay costs associated with the legal proceedings. In a statement emailed to CNN following Monday’s ruling, Kunsten’s director Lasse Andersson said that the museum would wait to see whether or not Haaning appealed the decision before commenting. The artist did not respond to a request for comment. ...

Electric bike maker Cyrusher launches 44 mph electric surfboard



You may remember Cyrusher from several electric bike reviews we’ve performed over the years. As it turns out, e-bikes aren’t the only fast EVs that the company has been working with. Feast your eyes on the new Cyrusher Thunder electric surfboard. For now we’ll look past the troublesome name (normally thunder is a precursor to leaving the water) and instead focus on the board itself. And that board definitely deserves a second look because it appears to be quite an impressive first attempt at an electric surfboard. In fact, with a stated top speed of 70 km/h (44 mph), somehow Cyrusher claims to have produced an even higher performance board than the current industry leaders. The 66-inch (1.68 meter) board uses a jet pump with a 5 kW continuous-rated and 10 kW peak-rated electric motor. A waterproof 72V and 50Ah battery offers 3.6 kWh of capacity, or what Cyrusher claims is enough for up to 60 minutes of riding time before requiring a two- to three-hour recharge. Unlike many electric surfboards that have a wireless transmitter for the remote, the Cyrusher Thunder uses a wired remote that doubles as a hand tether to hang on for dear life. Adjustable foot bindings are included for riders wanting to get more aggressive with their turns and tricks, though casual riders may find it easier to start without them. The board weighs 18 kg (40 lb.) dry, making it easy to lug from a car down to the water’s edge. Forget the jet-ski trailer; electric surfboards are perhaps the most convenient powered watersports option around. The battery does add another 22 kg (48.5 lb.) though, meaning the ready-to-go board may be a bit heavy for that last few meters down to the bank. There’s a handy little stand offered on Cyrusher’s site, though it looks more like a camping stool to me. Cyrusher has the Thunder listed at US $9,999, marked down from an MSRP of US $11,999. Compared to many premium electric surfboards, that’s actually a bit of a deal – especially for a board this fast and powerful. But then again, it begs the question of how an electric bicycle company could produce such a high-performance board like this, and whether or not it will actually live up to its published specs. I’m willing to put my body on the line though to find out. Cyrusher execs: If you’re reading this, give me an hour or two on the board and let’s see how it rides! If I can get some splash time on the board, I’ll be sure to come back and let you all know how it went. In the meantime, enjoy the video below of the last time I found myself on a high-performance electric surfboard in Sweden.

Apple Event 2023: How to watch the iPhone 15 reveal tomorrow



Apple is set to announce new iPhone models during its “Wonderlust” keynote on Tuesday at 10 AM PT (1 PM in New York, 6 PM in London, 7 PM in Paris), and you’ll be able to watch the event right here. Rumor has it that Apple will unveil the next generation of iPhone models — the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Plus, the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max. And this time, the company could replace stainless steel with titanium for the “Pro” models. Titanium frames would provide several advantages. The devices could be lighter as a result and the bezels around the screen could appear slightly thinner. Of course, it would also look different from the iPhone 14 Pro — but we won’t know how it looks before Apple’s conference. More importantly, Apple will swap its proprietary Lightning port for a more standard USB-C port due to EU regulation. It’s going to be interesting to see how Apple pitches this change — and how future iPhone buyers react to this change. In addition to this product launch, Apple could also use this opportunity to unveil a new Apple Watch as the company likes to refresh the Apple Watch once per year. Details are still thin on this front. Finally, Apple could talk briefly about the Vision Pro as the iPhone event usually draws a lot of attention. The company still expects to launch its VR headset next year. You can watch the livestream directly on this page, as Apple is streaming its conference on YouTube. You just have to hit the play button on the YouTube player. If you have an Apple TV, you can open the TV app and look for the “Apple Special Event” section. It lets you stream today’s event and rewatch old ones. And if you don’t have an Apple TV and don’t want to use YouTube, the company also lets you livestream the event from the Apple Events section on its website. This video feed works in all major browsers — Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.

Tesla Cybertruck wheel cover flies off in traffic as production looms



Tesla’s Cybertruck is just about ready to enter production, but a test vehicle was caught on video causing a potentially dangerous situation as its aerodynamic wheel cover came off in traffic, striking another vehicle and flying into the sky. Ever since it was originally unveiled, the Cybertruck has had some pretty cool-looking aerodynamic wheel covers. While we’ve seen the wheels without the covers on lately – as Tesla’s “production candidate” vehicles have been spotted in testing – as far as we can tell, the aero wheel covers are still planned for production. The most efficient vehicles are the ones that slip through the air, causing the least disturbance. Wheels work against that because they are like large side-mounted turbines that actively disturb the air as they roll along. Aerodynamic wheel covers are an important benefit because they can increase efficiency by 5-10%. This is particularly good for an electric vehicle because more efficiency means you need less battery onboard, making the car less costly and less heavy. Another reason you see these less frequently on gas vehicles is because brakes need lots of airflow to stay cool. By contrast, with EVs, brakes don’t get as hot since EVs can use regenerative braking instead of physical friction braking. So, these wheel covers make a lot of sense, especially on a car that’s already shaped kind of like a brick. However, as seen on Tesla’s previous cars, the aero wheel caps on the Cybertruck seem to be removable. We’ve just seen an unplanned example of this in a highway dashcam video in which the wheel cover flies up into the air, nearly hitting another vehicle, and then later being run over by multiple vehicles: ...

Google reveals Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2 designs before October 4 launch



Google has taken the unusual step of officially revealing the designs of its forthcoming flagship hardware nearly a month before its next launch event. Previously, the company has shared brief teasers of forthcoming devices, such as the Pixel 4. Likewise, Google used its I/O 2022 conference to showcase the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch months before their release dates. Until recently, Google has been more tight-lipped about the possibility of launching a Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and second-generation Pixel Watch, despite the onslaught of leaks. Arguably, that changed from last week onwards, with the Google Store providing various looks at the Pixel 8 series ahead of schedule. Now, Google has published two short videos of the Pixel 8 series and Pixel Watch, both referred to as a 'sneak peek'. With Apple's next iPhone and Watch launch event scheduled for September 12, it should come as no surprise to see Google attempting to steal some anticipation in favour of its rival devices. Arguably, the Pixel Watch 2's 'sneak peek' reveals more new details than the Pixel 8 series', both of which we have embedded below. For example, the video confirms that the Pixel Watch 2 is IP68 certified; its predecessor is only 5 ATM water resistant. Moreover, Google has included a new sensor array, which 9to5Google speculates is an electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor to monitor stress levels. Also, the Pixel Watch 2 features revised hardware buttons, albeit with the same display bezels and proprietary watch band mechanism. Reportedly, the Pixel Watch 2 will offer better battery life and performance too, courtesy of a Snapdragon W5 Gen 1-derived processor. Based on the videos below, Google will open pre-orders for the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2 in multiple markets. ...
