The Fitbit app is getting ready support for Google’s Wear OS wristwatch, including what appears to be a confirmation of its battery life, ahead of the Pixel Watch’s introduction later this year.
Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our APK Insight post. When we decompile these files—known as APKs for Android apps—we can find numerous lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll try to give those that are nearly finished a chance to demonstrate how they’ll seem if they do ship. Read on with that in mind.
Using a Fitbit tracker or wristwatch to monitor each night’s sleep is now possible with a Fitbit Premium subscription. This includes the time you spend awake, restless, and sleeping. Fitbit Premium will also track your different stages of sleep if your device can measure your heart rate.
We’ve known for a while that the Pixel Watch would integrate with Fitbit in some way, including having a watch face with a Fitbit theme. The company said that the Pixel Watch would contain the complete complement of Fitbit functions, including heart rate tracking, active minutes, and sleep monitoring, when the wristwatch was announced at Google I/O.
The Pixel Watch’s predicted battery life, according to our reporting, is closer to 24 hours per charge than Fitbit wearables, which can last for up to multiple days of usage on a single charge. Therefore, in order to ensure that the sleep tracking is uninterrupted, you should charge your Pixel Watch before bed.
Version 3.65 of the Fitbit app, the most recent update, adds new in-app language about Pixel Watch nighttime charge reminders. When this new setting is turned on, Fitbit will notify you to charge your watch just before your bedtime target.
If your Pixel Watch battery is too low to track a night’s sleep, you will receive a reminder before to your intended bedtime.
Notably, the message appears to support our research regarding the Pixel Watch’s stated 24-hour battery life. Before going to bed, the Fitbit app advises charging your watch to at least 30% of its capacity. 30% of the Pixel Watch’s battery is sufficient for at least eight hours of heart rate monitoring, if this is based on the suggested eight hours of sleep per night.
Charge your watch now.
For a full night’s sleep to be tracked, you need at least 30% charge.
It should come as no surprise that applications like Fitbit are developing the necessary compatibility since the Pixel Watch is anticipated to ship alongside the Pixel 7 series this autumn. Even though the Pixel Watch’s battery life doesn’t match the 80-hour estimate of the recently released Galaxy Watch 5 Pro , it’s still pleasant to have the app appear to confirm it.
Thanks to JEB Decompiler , several APK Insight teardowns are made possible.
