Google’s Nest series of smart devices range from smart speakers to and smart displays. If you’re looking for something in the latter category, then you might be interested to learn that Google has actually announced an update to its Nest Hub series where they have since unveiled the second-gen Nest Hub.
The device has been given a bit of a face lift where it comes in a host of different colors that you can choose from to better complement the room. Google has also made some improvements under the hood where according to the company, the second-gen Nest Hub will offer 50% more bass than the original, so if you thought the original model was a bit too thin-sounding, hopefully this will help make it sound more full.
It also supports air gestures so you can command it and pause/play music just by waving your hands in front of it. It even comes with health tracking features like a sleep tracker. It uses Google’s Soli radar-sensing technology to detect your movements while you’re in bed to determine how restful (or restless) your sleep is.
It can detect things like coughing, snoring, light and temperature changes, and more, so you have a better idea of how your sleep might have been affected and what you might need to do to change it. The new second-gen Nest Hub is priced at $100 and is available for pre-order starting today.
