Google is allegedly working on a high-end Pixel Watch, according to the newest speculative reports

According to 9to5Google, Google’s incoming Pixel Watch seems to be a flagship device that will compete with Samsung’s newest Galaxy Watches and Apple’s Watch. The wearable’s battery capacity will be 300 milliamp-hours (mAh), according to a report from 9to5.

The Pixel Watch’s cellular connectivity wasn’t always a guarantee. Connectivity may be dependant on your phone for smartwatches at all price points, from the cheapest to the most expensive. Assuming the report is true, and there will be a cellular Pixel Watch model, it shows that Google is not attempting to make its watch a smaller or cheaper alternative, but rather wants to cater to a broad audience of users.

Considering how large the watch is, the battery looks to have a reasonable physical capacity. The milliamp-hour rating, on the other hand, makes it difficult to predict how long it will last between charges.

It was observed that the Apple Watch Series 7 41mm and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic 42mm had very varied degrees of durability when Dan Seifert, The Verge’s reviews editor, tested them side by side. Samsung‘s smartwatch ran out of battery power whereas the Apple Watch was just 52 percent depleted one day (though the next day he was able to get a couple of hours more out of the Galaxy after some tweaks). However, the Apple Watch’s battery capacity is just 284mAh, compared to the Galaxy’s 247mAh.

The features and processor of a wearable device are what truly important in terms of its battery life. For the Pixel Watch, both are unknown at this stage, but it’s clear that it won’t be able to squeeze more than a week of battery life out of its 250mAh battery as the Pebble Time did.

Which of Qualcomm’s Wear 4100 or Wear 4100 Plus chipsets, which have been available for some time but have yet to appear in many smartwatches, will Google be using? Next-generation Qualcomm chipsets that are yet to be announced? Those Exynos processors manufactured by Samsung for its own watches? Google utilises a unique Tensor processor in its Pixel 6? So many alternatives are out there, some of which are unknowns, some of which might indicate a poor battery life.

If the speculations are correct, Google might unveil the Pixel Watch during its I/O conference, which begins only a few weeks from now on May 11th, according to the latest reports. In the meanwhile, if you’re curious in its hardware, you’re in luck: someone released a slew of images showing the smartphone in various poses, as if it had been discovered in a bar, iPhone 4-style. Perhaps, like Steve Jobs, Sundar Pichai would remark, “stop me if you’ve already seen this,” when he debuts the Pixel Watch.
