Google Pixel Watch was unveiled at the I/O 2022 event in May as the company’s first smartwatch offering, alongside the Pixel Buds Pro and Pixel 6a. It runs on the Wear OS platform and comes with Fitbit integration for tracking various physical activities. The Google Pixel Watch will be available in the US starting this fall, and the Fitbit app is reportedly preparing support for the wearable ahead of launch. The app’s recent APK (Android Package Kit) teardown reveals new in-app text related to evening recharge reminders, which provide hints about the smartwatch’s estimated battery life.
The estimated battery life of Google Pixel Watch was suggested by 9to5Google via an APK teardown while researching the latest v3.65 of the Fitbit app. The app can be used to manage the wearable. According to the report, the APK teardown of the app includes new in-app text related to evening charge reminders for the Google Pixel Watch. When this upcoming switch is turned on, Fitbit will send a notification to remind users to charge their smartwatch.
The Fitbit app generally recommends charging the device at least 30 percent before going to bed to ensure efficient sleep tracking. Assuming Google considers a full 8-hour night’s sleep, the report suggests the smartwatch could offer around 24 hours of battery life. This is in line with previous reports claiming that the Google Pixel Watch has a capacity of around 300mAh battery that provides up to a day’s runtime on a single charge.
In May of this year, Google introduced the Pixel Watch at the I/O 2022 event. It will run the latest version of Wear OS and has a round screen with minimal bezels and curved glass protection. The smartwatch has a stainless steel construction. The wearable supports Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Wallet. It can be used as a remote control for compatible smarthome devices using the Home app for Wear OS.
Google has also packed customizable, interchangeable wristbands on the Pixel Watch. It also offers heart rate and sleep monitoring. The Pixel Watch also works with the Find My Device app to help users locate their lost Pixel phone, earbuds, or other supported devices.
