Google Pixel Watch Battery Life Tipped

The upcoming Google Pixel Watch will have Fitbit integration, which is not a surprise given that Google acquired the wearable brand for $2.1B back in 2021. During the Google IO keynote, Google showed off some of the Fitbit-themed watch faces and confirmed that the upcoming smartwatch will have a full set of Fitbit features including HR monitor, sleep tracking and active zone minutes. Previously, the Pixel Watch was rated to last up to one day. google-pixel-watch-1

Now, the latest update to the Fitbit app (v3.65), as per the apk teardown includes new in-app text related to evening charge reminders for Pixel Watch. Once this is enabled after the watch is launched, Fitbit will push out a notification shortly before your “bedtime goal” asking you to charge the watch. This notification seemingly confirms Pixel Watch’s 24-hour estimated battery life. Fitbit app usually recommends users’ watch be charged at least 30% before going to sleep.

The smartwatch is said to come with a 300mAh battery capacity. The upcoming smartwatch from Google will run on Wear OS with fluid navigation and smart notifications. The watch will come with support Google Assistant and also supports Google Wallet, Google Maps apps, and the Google Home app for Wear OS to control smart home devices. The watch comes with a circular dome design with a crown button on the side. The wearable is made up of recycled stainless steel material and it offers support for customizable bands as well.
