The original Google Pixel Watch is getting some new features! The Pixel Watch 2 features are now being added to the original Pixel Watch, such as “Do not disturb & Bedtime Sync.” These features can be found in the “Notifications” settings of the Pixel Watch companion app and can be turned on and off.
Some of the new features include the ability for the Pixel Watch to sync with your phone’s ‘Do Not Disturb and Bedtime’ modes, so when your phone is connected to your watch via Bluetooth, tapping these modes will sync across all devices. This makes it easier to control your notifications and bedtime settings.
This update comes after Google mentioned that the original Pixel Watch would get some of the Pixel Watch 2 features during the December 2023 feature drop rollout. In addition to the new ‘Do Not Disturb and Bedtime’ modes, the original Pixel Watch has also gained new watch faces and updated complications. These include the ability to see the temperature, precipitation, and forecast on the watch face, as well as upcoming events.
The Pixel Watch 2 features a more accurate heart rate sensor, a refined design, and an upgraded chip for better performance. Most of its features can be accessed without a Pixel Android phone, making it a versatile and useful device.
Users of the original Pixel Watch can expect the new features to automatically appear on their watch after a server-side update. However, it may take some time for the update to roll out to all devices, so it’s recommended to wait until the end of the week to see the new features on your watch.
Overall, the addition of these new features brings the original Pixel Watch closer to its successor, enhancing its functionality and usefulness for users.
