The Pixel Watch is Google's first attempt to create a smartwatch. And since we are talking about Google here, the tech giant has decided to make a smartwatch that can rival the big dogs in this game, the Apple Watch Series 8 and the Galaxy Watch 5.

Indeed, with its minimalistic round design, a tactile rotating crown, Wear OS 3, Fitbit integration, and Google Home support, the Pixel Watch sounds like a worthy competitor. But is it?

Pixel Watch review


Google's Pixel Watch is a beautiful device that combines the best of Google and Fitbit. But it is still a first-generation smartwatch, and sadly, it feels as such. During our time with it, we experienced some bugs and a slight stutter here and there, which hopefully Google will find a way to fix.

However, our main gripe is the watch's poor battery life. We just can not recommend a watch that you need to charge twice a day. To see our complete thoughts on Google's first smartwatch, you can read our in-depth Pixel Watch review.

In what colors is the Pixel Watch available?


The Pixel Watch is available in three colors:
  • Black
  • Silver
  • Gold


In addition to that, Google also offers seven watch straps, so you have a lot more design options to choose from.



What is the Pixel Watch's battery capacity?


The Pixel Watch comes with a 294mAh battery, and according to Google, it can last up to 24 hours on a single charge, which means that 24 hours is the watch’s absolute maximum. When we tested the device, we needed to charge it twice a day, which is just unacceptable.

As for the charging speed, the tech giant claims that the Pixel Watch can fill its tank in around 80 minutes. In our battery test, the watch needed 1 hour and 35 minutes to fully charge.

What are the best Pixel Watch deals?
