Google Nest Hub 2 will be able to track our sleep

Goggle announced the second-generation Nest Hub smart display at a price of $ 99.99. Pre-orders will begin today in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Australia. Currently, it is not known if it will reach Spain.

The main function of the new Nest Hub is the internal Radar Soli hardware, similar to the hardware of the Pixel 4 smartphone. Among other functions, Radar Soli allows you to control audio playback simply with aerial gestures in front of the screen.

However, the main application of this Soli sensor is sleep detection, which is an optional feature that will monitor your sleep status and provide personalized recommendations by collecting exercise data.

The sensor will detect movement and respiration, even taking into account interferences such as coughing, snoring, changes in light and temperature, to assess the sleep quality.

Nest Hub will display a personalized sleep summary every morning and sleep data can also be linked to the Google Fit app for more comprehensive health records. Based on daily activities and sleep patterns, it will also provide a personalized bedtime and suggestions on how to improve sleep habits.

All monitoring is done by motion sensors and there is no camera to record user activities. In addition, Google guarantees that it will not send exercise data to its servers or use it for the placement of targeted ads, and users can delete their sleep data at any time.

Sleep detection is an optional feature and will be available as a free preview before next year. Google also plans to integrate it with Fitbit’s sleep tracking feature, because the search giant already has it.

The new Nest Hub has a 7-inch LCD touchscreen and three microphones, but it doesn’t have a camera, so you won’t be able to make video calls. Google said that compared to the previous product, its bass effect has also been improved by 50%.
