Along with all the usual smartwatch functions, like notifications for incoming SMS messages, email, and calls, and music playback control, the timepiece also offers a range of new innovations such as:

Heart Rate Tracking. Using Google Fit or third-party apps, the watch automatically tracks your heart across various types of workouts.

NFS payment. The NFC-enabled Full Guard 2.5 allows you to buy stuffs via Google Pay or Alipay (available in China).

Assist on the Wrist. Give commands or ask questions directly to your smartwatch via Google Assistant.

Swimproof Technology. Swimproof technology allows you to shower and swim up to 3 ATM seamlessly through third-party apps.
