Google officially says you can get 24 hours of battery life from the Pixel Watch’s 294mAh battery and is now giving an official breakdown of how it came to that number.
At launch, Google’s precise fingerprint stated that “maximum battery life is approximate and based on testing with pre-production hardware and software.”
Shipping times are approximate. Using certain features will reduce battery life. Battery life depends on enabled features, usage, environment, and many other factors. Actual battery life may be less.
The Google Pixel Watch Charging and Battery Life Improvement article has now been updated to state that “24 hours of battery life depends on the following usage”:
- 240 notifications
- 280 time checks
- 5 minute LTE phone call.
- 45 minutes of LTE and GPS workouts with downloaded YouTube music playing
- 50 minutes of navigation (Google Maps) while connected to a phone via Bluetooth
- The clock configured with the default settings, including the Always-on screen, is set to off
This number derived from the Always-on display being disabled is notable, especially since the “Updates” feed in the Pixel Watch app prompts users about AOD after setting. In practice, we easily got over 24 hours of battery life with AOD turned on. It’s also possible to get a full day of use with it turned on, but don’t expect it after that.
Apple has always provided similar information about its Watch (he assured us):
All-day battery life depends on the following usage: 90 time checksAnd the 90 NotificationsAnd the 45 minutes of using the appand 60 minutes of exercise With music playback from Apple Watch via Bluetooth, for 18 hours; Apple Watch Series 8 (GPS) use involves connecting to an iPhone via Bluetooth during the entire 18-hour test; Includes total use of Apple Watch Series 8 (GPS + Cellular) 4 hours of LTE Connection and 14 hours Connection to iPhone via Bluetooth over 18 hours.
