Pretty much all smartwatches and fitness trackers these days come with workout tracking. It’s a way for users to log their workouts so they can keep an eye on their progress and get a visual way of seeing how often they work out, how many calories they’ve burnt, and so on.
Now according to a post on X by tipster Kamila Wojciechowska, it seems that the upcoming Pixel Watch 2 is expected to come with a new feature in the form of automatic workout tracking.

For those who are unfamiliar, automatic workout tracking is where the smartwatch detects that you are doing some kind of physical activity and will prompt users whether or not they want to track it. This is useful if you forgot to begin your tracking, so the watch will be able to detect your activity and remind you about it.
According to the leaked screenshot, it seems that it will be able to automatically start, pause, and stop your workouts accordingly, a feature that was not in the original Pixel Watch. If you think that this could be a useful feature to have, then the Pixel Watch 2 might be a smartwatch worth keeping an eye out for.
Google is expected to announce the smartwatch alongside its Pixel 8 smartphones on the 4th of October, so check back with us then for the updates!
