Google officially revealed the Pixel smartwatch at its I/O event in early May, and since then the company has been releasing details on what its wearables will look like. Previous reports had estimated the possible battery capacity of this smartwatch will be 300mAh. However, now there is new information that has revealed its battery life.
This important parameter is presented by the editors of the 9to5Google server, according to preliminary tests carried out by the manufacturer, the Pixel Watch will have autonomy for up to 1 day, which is guaranteed to be a disappointment for all users who were considering its purchase.
Increasingly, the autonomy of a smartwatch is one of the critical factors for users’ final decision before their purchase, with the overwhelming majority looking for watches that can last at least 2 days on a single charge.
This is not the only information that raises concerns for fans of the Mountain View giant. In addition to the possible autonomy, the same source reveals that its charging capacities also fall short of expectations.
The Google Pixel Watch will not come with support for fast charging, offering an approximate time of 110 minutes for its battery to fully charge. Thus, users may need to put their new watch aside for almost 2 hours until the battery is fully charged.
It’s not as fast as the Apple Watch Series 7 line, which claims to be capable of 0-80% charging in 45 minutes and 0-100% in 75 minutes using USB-C and a 20W adapter. However, it should be noted that the Pixel Watch is still in production and this estimate may change.
The Pixel Watch is expected to be unveiled on May 11 at the Google I/O event.
