Turn OFF settings that can drain battery

Always-on display

The always-on display feature prevents the watch screen from going dark even when you're not using it. To extend watch battery life on Pixel Watch (1st gen only), turn this feature off.

Note: Pixel Watch comes with the always-on display setting turned off by default.

  1. On your Google Pixel Watch, swipe down and then tap Settings .
  2. Tap Display and then turn off 'Always-on display'.

Tilt-to-wake

The tilt-to-wake setting wakes up your watch screen when you raise your wrist to look at the watch. To extend watch battery life, turn this feature off.

Note: Pixel Watch comes with the tilt-to-wake setting turned off by default.

  1. On your Google Pixel Watch, swipe down and then tap Settings .
  2. Tap Gestures and then turn off 'Tilt-to-wake'.

Mobile mode (for mobile LTE connections only)

If your watch is losing its charge too quickly when connected to a mobile network, extend it by setting the Mobile mode to automatic (only connects to mobile radio when there is no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity) or off (mobile radio completely off).

  1. On your Google Pixel Watch, swipe down and then tap Settings .
  2. Tap Connectivity and then Mobile and then Mobile.

  • you're not wearing the watch.
  • the watch isn't charging.
  • the watch has been inactive for 10 minutes.

Note: When Full Doze mode is on, network access and features like Find My Device won't work or receive updates.

Bedtime mode

Other tips to maximise battery life

Reduce screen timeout period

Save battery life by setting up a screen timeout period that puts your watch screen to sleep after a set amount of time or inactivity. Set a shorter timeout period so your watch goes to sleep more frequently when you're not using it.

  1. On your Google Pixel Watch, swipe down and then tap Settings .
  2. Tap Display and then Screen timeout.
  3. Select a faster timeout.
    1. For example: Select 10 seconds instead of 30 seconds (15 seconds for Pixel Watch 2).

Download music

Streaming music can drain batteries faster. Instead, download music on Google Pixel Watch.

Maximum battery life is approximate and is based on testing conducted in California in mid-2023 on pre-production hardware and software, using default settings with a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby and the use of other features. Battery life depends on the features enabled, usage, environment and many other factors. Use of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower.
