Fitbit app update teases Pixel Watch battery life of 24 hours

Pixel Watch

Google Pixel Watch was unveiled at I/O 2022 alongside Pixel Buds Pro and Pixel 6a. It uses Wear OS and integrates Fitbit to track physical activities. Fitbit is reportedly preparing to support the Google Pixel Watch before its fall release. Recent APK (Android Package Kit) teardown of the app shows new in-app text related to evening charge reminders indicating smartwatch battery life.

9to5Google estimated Pixel Watch’s battery life using an APK teardown of Fitbit v3.65. App manages wearable. According to a report, the app’s APK teardown shows new in-app text for evening Pixel Watch charge reminders. When enabled, Fitbit will remind users to charge their smartwatch.

9to5Google’s APK teardown of Fitbit’s latest app (3.65), reveals Wear OS support. The Pixel Watch will include sleep tracking, so it makes sense.

A few strings in the teardown suggested the smartwatch’s battery life isn’t impressive. When enabled, a reminder tells Pixel Watch owners to charge their device before bedtime if the battery is low. The reminder states that “a full night’s sleep” requires a 30% charge. APK teardowns don’t always guarantee a feature’s final release. This confirms previous rumours that the Pixel Watch’s battery will only last 24 hours per charge.

This in-app description is consistent with earlier rumours about the wearable’s battery life. 9to5 noted that a 30% charge seems reasonable for an eight-hour night’s sleep. This equals 24 hours of battery life. Google should improve its 24-hour battery life if it wants to compete with the best Android smartwatch.

This isn’t ideal for a daily-use smartwatch. How long should you stay awake if your watch’s battery is at 10% before bed? Fast charging can help here. Will the Pixel Watch have wireless charging, or will you always need a charger?

These questions won’t be answered until launch. The Pixel Watch may have 18 hours more battery life than the Apple Watch Series 7.
