Google Pixel Watch Battery Capacity Revealed; Could Be Greater Than Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
The Pixel Watch can be compared to Samsung's current flagship, the Galaxy Watch 4, and the Fossil Gen 6 based on capacity.
The Google Pixel Watch, which is rumoured to be the search giant's first "real" competitor in the wearable industry, has yet to be released. However, the quantity of leaks that appear every few days appears to leave little to the imagination. We've already seen the reported device left at a bar in the United States, as well as some model number confirmation on Bluetooth SIG docs. This time, more information regarding the impending Pixel Watch has surfaced. The new study discusses its likely battery capacity and cellular connectivity.
According to 9to5Google, the upcoming Pixel Watch may be powered by a 300mAh battery. In terms of capacity, the Pixel Watch is comparable to Samsung's current flagships, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Fossil Gen 6. Google's Wear OS powers both of these devices. The Samsung smartphone, on the other hand, slaps its own skin on top with a few tweaks.
Pixel Watch Battery vs. Galaxy Watch 4, Fossil Gen 6
Although 300mAh may not seem like much, we can estimate the Pixel Watch's run time based on how many hours its competitors run for. For example, if the Galaxy Watch 4 40mm has a 247mAh battery and is said to run for up to 40 hours on a single charge, we can undoubtedly expect the Pixel Watch to equal the hours or even deliver some extra juice with a 300mAh battery at the time of launch. Nonetheless, it will undoubtedly turn the forthcoming watch into a 24-hour device.
Google's smartwatch is similarly comparable to the Fossil Gen 6 smartwatch, which has the same 300mAh battery capacity as the Pixel Watch. However, even with an older Snapdragon Wear 4100+ CPU, the device can function in Extended Mode for 24+ hours. We expect that the Pixel Watch is powered by a more efficient SoC that consumes less battery and easily lasts more than 24 hours.
Pixel Watch May Use Samsung’s Exynos SoC
However, it was previously speculated that the Pixel Watch might feature the W920 chipset from the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, which appears to be more efficient than the Snapdragon 4100+. According to 9to5Google, the Pixel Watch's display size is approximately 30mm or a little under 1.2-inches, which is also comparable to the Galaxy Watch 4.
While the information on how the battery will be charged is unknown at this time, based on the design displayed in photographs of the real testing device, the Pixel Watch may permit charging from the back. The charging style is identical to that of Fitbit's Versa 3 and Sense smartwatches.
