The Google Pixel Watch will be released later this year, and has been the subject of various speculations. A new report states that the upcoming smartwatch will come with a disappointing one-day battery life.
Google Pixel Watch: Rumoured Battery Life
9To5Google has unearthed details about the battery from the Fitbit app for Android. The latest update bearing version number 3.65 has a new reminder text for the Pixel Watch. If the option is selected, the app will issue a reminder to charge your watch. The text reads, “Get a notification before your bedtime goal if your Pixel Watch battery is too low to track a night’s sleep.”
According to the report, the Fitbit app suggests that the watch should be charged to at least 30 percent for it to track a full night’s sleep. If you do the math, considering eight hours of sleep, the battery can be estimated to last for a total of 24 hours.

To compare, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 reportedly offers a battery life of up to 50 hours. The Pixel Watch will likely have a similar battery life as that of the Apple Watch. With Garmin and Samsung offering longer battery life for their smartwatches, the Pixel Watch could face stiff competition in the market.
Although Google now owns Fitbit, there’s no word on how the Fitbit app will support the Pixel Watch. There is some speculation suggesting that the search giant is planning to release a new Pixel Watch app.
Google Pixel Watch: Rumoured Features
The Google Pixel Watch will reportedly sport a 1.2-inch AMOLED display with minimal bezels. The upcoming smartwatch could be powered by an Exynos 9110 processor. The device might launch in both WiFi-only and LTE models.
While the Pixel Watch is said to feature Type-C charging, it may not support fast charging. Additionally, it could come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The smartwatch is said to include a heart rate sensor, an ECG monitor, and an SpO2 sensor.
