Google showcased its upcoming Pixel Watch at I/O 2022. The Pixel Watch is the company’s first-ever smartwatch and is expected to make its debut alongside the Pixel 7 lineup in October. Ahead of the launch, a new report by 9to5Google suggests that the Pixel Watch will offer just one day of battery life. An earlier report by the publication had revealed that the upcoming Pixel Watch will be equipped with a 300mAh battery unit.
Citing an anonymous source, the report claims that Google’s first-ever smartwatch will last up to a day on a single charge, which might be a little disappointing for prospective buyers. The report suggests that the estimated battery life is at the pre-release stage and the final retail product might offer better or worse battery life. It doesn’t mention the condition under which the one-day battery life is observed. With AOD and sleep tracking, one-day battery life seems at par with the competition.

The Pixel Watch is said to rely on a proprietary charger. Although it will feature Type-C charging, it will reportedly not support fast charging. According to the outlet, the smartwatch will take about 110 minutes to charge from 0 to 100 percent. The device is said to pack 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. It will also include a heart rate sensor, an SpO2 sensor, and an ECG monitor.
