A day of autonomy for the Google Pixel Watch?

The Google Pixel Watch, which will be released in the fall, does not appear to be set to change industry standards when it comes to battery life. According to some of our colleagues, it will take a day of endurance.

Even if the Pixel Watch was made official by the Mountain View company on the occasion of Google I/O, it is over the rumors and research of our colleagues in the specialized press that it is revealed a little more every week. 9to5googlemedia dedicated to the news of Android products and particularly Google, says that the Pixel Watch will benefit from 24 hours of autonomy thanks to a battery of approximately 300 mAh.

9to5google clarifies that this is an estimate of Google on a pre-release and that it could change before the launch. It remains to know the conditions of these first tests: was the permanent display activated? Was sleep tracking too? One thing seems certain at this stage, the watch does not revolutionize current standards in terms of autonomy. At or near equivalent capacity, other watches installed under Wear OS, such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch or the Fossil Gen 6, display endurance of the same order.

The Pixel Watch wouldn’t offer particularly fast charging via its magnetic to USB-C cable either, with early estimates being close to 2 hours. It will then be difficult to compete with a last-generation Apple Watch that does this job in just over an hour.

A few days ago, other information leaked on the watch marketed this fall by Google. It is expected to be powered by a Samsung-designed Exynos 9110 chip, while a Cortex-M33 co-processor is expected to boost the Pixel Watch’s performance by offloading the main chip from several tasks. It would also have 32 GB of storage. In terms of uses, we should find a heart rate sensor, an electrocardiogram (ECG) and the possibility of measuring SpO2 (oxygen in the blood).
