Google's Pixel Watch has been making rounds of the rumor mill for quite some time. One of the reasons it has caught everyone's eyes is that it will be Google's first-ever smartwatch release. A new report from 9to5Google has claimed that the Pixel Watch will not have impressive battery life.
The report says Pixel Watch will only last for about a day on a single charge. The current estimate is based on the pre-release life cycle and may change by the time the official launch takes place. The exact conditions under which this one-day battery life has been measured are currently unknown.
We previously heard that Google has packed the smartwatch with a 300mAh battery. This is for the standard variant and we may see a bigger one on the LTE variant. All in all, it seems like Pixel Watch users will have to stick to a daily charging routine if they wish to use it on daily basis. This is something that is not too surprising as we have seen many other smartwatches offer similar battery lives on a single charge.
The Pixel Watch is officially confirmed to sport a round dial with a bezel-less appearance. It has a rotating crown on the side and easily removable bands. The smartwatch will boot Wear OS featuring Fitbit integration. It will be packed with health and fitness features like Active Zone Minutes, sleep tracking, continuous heart rate tracking, personal fitness goals, stats, and your progress towards those goals.
