The Fitbit app on the Google Pixel Watch is reportedly readying support for the wearable.

The newest Android Application Package (APK) leak signifies a brand new app textual content associated with night cost reminders that gives hints in regards to the smartwatch’s estimated battery life.

Google Pixel Watch was unveiled during the I/O 2022 event in May as the first smartwatch offering from the company, alongside the Pixel Buds Pro and Pixel 6a. The Google Pixel Watch will be available in the US starting this fall.

According to reports, the APK teardown of the app includes new in-app text related to evening charge reminders for the Google Pixel Watch. When this upcoming toggle is enabled, Fitbit will send a notification reminding users to charge their smartwatch.

Fitbit app generally recommends charging the device at least 30 percent before going to bed for ensuring efficient sleep tracking. Assuming that Google is considering a full night’s sleep on 8 hours, reports suggest that the smartwatch could offer a battery life of somewhere around 24 hours.

These are in line with the earlier reports that claimed that the Google Pixel Watch has a capacity of about 300mAh battery that delivers up to a day’s runtime on a single charge.

The watch will run the latest version of Wear OS and features a circular display with minimal bezels and curved glass protection. The smartwatch has a stainless-steel build. The wearable supports Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Wallet. It can be used as a remote for compatible smart home devices using the Home app for Wear OS.
