Google Pixel Watch Review, This is Google’s first try at wearables; in 2019, they purchased Fitbit and adopted all of Fitbit’s fitness features, although they did not eliminate the Fitbit name.
There is no doubt that it is a costly smartwatch, and you should avoid it until and until you have money to spend on something.
The Bluetooth/Wi-Fi version of the Pixel Watch costs $349.99, while the 4G LTE version costs $399.99. The watch comes in Matte Black, Polished Silver, and Champagne Gold finishes.

Google Pixel Watch Review
No, the Google Pixel Watch is not worth purchasing since it is an overpriced wristwatch that has a terrible battery life, is not completely integrated with Pixel smartphones, and has connection troubles, and yet Google charges $350, which is not a reasonable price for what you receive.
If you have an Android smartphone, you should purchase the Galaxy Watch 5 (review), which begins at $279, but if you have an iPhone, you should get the Apple Watch 8, which starts at $399.
Nonetheless, because Google uses Fitbit software, the Pixel watch is a reliable fitness tracker. Because of WearOS, you won’t get a full day of battery life, which is a good thing because you’ll have to charge this watch twice a day.
It also features always on display, which you must enable. The reason for this is that using always on display 24/7 consumes a lot of battery power, and Google does not want you to utilise this function, therefore it is turned off by default.
To summarise, the display is sturdy and brilliant, however the large bezels might be bothersome after a few days.
The Google Pixel Watch has a 1.20-inch AMOLED display with 450 x 450 pixel resolution with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits.
You already know it has large bezels, I mean, you can’t ignore it, but because Google has selected a dark UI, you won’t notice it in normal use until and until you choose a brighter wallpaper or theme.
Personally, I despise those bezels; I spent $349,99 and yet I had to make design compromises. Again, the design is dependent on the user, so if you don’t care about it, you’ll like the design or even the display.
Design, Comfort, and Build
It has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, glossy plastic on the back, and a Stainless Steel frame, weighing 36 grammes.
I’ve previously discussed the bezels, so let’s go on to the comfort…
The watch is only available in 40mm sizes, which is unfortunate because not everyone has small hands. Because of its compact size, it also has a little battery, which we will all discuss in a moment.
Google could have at least presented the choice, but this is what it is, and I am hoping that the Pixel Watch 2 will have a 44mm variation…
Yes, Google has utilised several types of straps; simply move the strap and it will pop out, Google Pixel Watch Review
The Watch is pleasant to wear, and due of its compact size, it only weighs 36 grammes, Google Pixel Watch Review so you won’t have any issues wearing it all day and all night.
Now since the design is subjective, you must decide if you prefer the Apple Watch design or what Google has created.
Speaking for me, I like the circular design, however that round corner stretches really quickly, so use caution.
The Pixel watch is powered on WearOS 3.5, with certain Fitbit features added on top.
When you initially activate your Pixel watch, it will instruct you to download the Fitbit app rather than the Google Fit app. You may also use the Google Fit app and the Fitbit app simultaneously to view heart rate and sleep statistics.
You may also utilise solely the Fitbit app, as Google suggests.
I know, it’s a mess, and it appears like Google is set to destroy one of the applications, the name of which we don’t yet know.
I don’t need to tell you what you can do with WearOS; it’s created by Google, so you can do everything you want, including watch YouTube videos.
After 6 months, you will lose all of your Heart Rate, Sleep, Snore, and other data, thus Google is saying, use this for 6 months and then pay us money to access that data.
Another thing to note is that while Google has made much of how they are integrating all of their products, it does not function in practise.
When you enable DND mode on your Pixel smartphone, it does not automatically activate on your Pixel watch. As a result, you must manually activate DND on the Pixel watch.
In summary, it does not integrate seamlessly with Pixel devices.
Health and Fitness Tracking
Fitbit is well-known for health tracking and providing the most accurate statistics, and the Pixel Watch is no exception. The watch runs WearOS, but it is powered by Fitbit technology, so you don’t have to worry about accuracy.
The problem is that the Pixel watch measures the heart rate every single second, which is OK unless it consumes all of the battery life.
If Google does not address this issue with an update, you will have to charge this watch twice a day.
I realise it’s Google’s first watch, but they’re a tech business that also makes accurate Fitbits, so this type of issue shouldn’t exist in the first place.
The Pixel watch also contains accelerometer, gyro, heart rate, altimeter, compass, and ECG sensors. All of the sensors perform beautifully and offer near-perfect data, especially the heart rate sensor.
The built-in GPS is quite useful, especially when using Google Maps. Google Pixel Watch Review
Because of the Fitbit connectivity, the sleep tracking is also accurate. It also has ECG certification. Google Pixel Watch Review
Overall, it’s a Fitbit smartwatch, so there’s no need to be concerned about the health statistics. Google is maintaining the Fitbit brand since it has a large customer base.
who use Fitbit watches and do not want to lose those people, Google Pixel Watch Review but they will gradually destroy the brand, as Apple did with Beats.
Bluetooth & 4G LTE
If you wish to utilise eSIM, you must spend $399, Google Pixel Watch Review while the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi model costs $349.
By the way, the watch does not support 5G, only 4G LTE. Google Pixel Watch Review It also features Bluetooth 5.0, which is disappointing given even low-cost smartwatches have Bluetooth 5.3.
You may also use Google wallet to make payments with NFC. Google Pixel Watch Review
The microphone is fantastic; the other person on the line will easily hear your voice. Even in public locations, Google Pixel Watch Reviewthe microphone is the most effective.
If you just have Bluetooth/Wi-Fi, you’ll have to link the watch to a smartphone to make calls, but the LTE version allows you to use the watch on its own.
The Google Pixel Watch has a 294mAh battery with Qi wireless charging capabilities. Google Pixel Watch Review
The good news is that it supports quick charging. Google Pixel Watch Review It will take 15 minutes to charge from 10% to 40%, but just 1 hour to charge from 0% to 100%.
If you utilise all of the capabilities, such as SpO2, heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking, the battery life should last roughly 18 hours.
In short, if you want to wear the smartwatch all night, you must charge it in the morning and again in the afternoon. Google Pixel Watch Review
If you do not utilise all of the capabilities, the battery life will be approximately 24 hours. (There is no Bluetooth calling, heart rate tracking, SpO2, or sleep.)
The Google Pixel Watch would have been a fine option at $199, but at $349, it is pricey given the abundance of battery options available above $300. Google Pixel Watch Review So, instead of the Pixel Watch, you may go for the Apple Watch 8 or the Galaxy Watch 5.
