- Google’s Pixel Watch is expected to have a 300mAh battery.
- The battery should provide all-day use.
- Sources say the watch will also have cellular connectivity.
According to new reports, Google’s upcoming Pixel Watch will include cellular connectivity and all-day battery life.
The Pixel Watch is one of the most anticipated wearables, with a slew of rumors and leaks about what to expect. The Pixel Watch even had its own iPhone 4 moment, being left in a Chicago restaurant and providing an opportunity to see the design up close. 9to5Google’s sources are now providing information regarding the watch’s internals, including that it may have cellular connectivity and a 300mAh battery.

It’s unclear if all three anticipated models will feature connectivity or only specific ones. Either way, cellular connectivity is a major feature that’s necessary for Google to make a dent in Apple’s wearables market share.
Users wanting all-day battery life should be pleased with Google’s decision to pack in a 300mAh battery. Most smartwatches with a similarly-sized battery achieve anywhere from 24 to 40 hours of use, although some of those are powered by less efficient processors than what Google is expected to use.
Google’s watch may be one of the best possibilities to challenge the Apple Watch. If 9to5Google’s sources are correct, it appears Google is determined to take its best shot.
