Google Pixel Watch could beat Galaxy Watch4 in battery life

The device’s thick body provides plenty of space for a (slightly) larger battery

The last few weeks have been filled with leaks about the Pixel Watch, with a newer one arriving in the form of photos showing us exactly what the device looks like from almost every angle. But while its futuristic exterior has been completely revealed, there is still a lot to know about the insides. Some of it has been cleaned up now with yet another leak that sheds some light on the upcoming device’s battery.

9to5Google reports from a source that the smartwatch will pack a 300mAh cell. This is remarkably larger than the 247 mAh battery on the 40mm version of Samsung’s Galaxy Watch4 – hardly a surprise given that the Pixel Watch is also significantly thicker at 14mm (compared to 9.8mm on the Watch4) and heavier at 36 g (compared to Watch4’s) 26 g).

Based on this information and the fact that the Galaxy Watch4 is generally a 24-hour device, it is safe to assume that the Pixel Watch will be able to run an entire day, maybe even a little more. There is also some opportunity to push further optimization in, as both Pixel Watch and Wear OS are Google products that could provide a closer integration.

Aside from the battery size, the source revealed that the Pixel Watch will support mobile connectivity, although it is not clear how it will be spread across the three variants.

The device has not yet been announced, but there is speculation in a launch for the Google I / O 2022 Developer Conference, which is now only a few weeks away.
