It’s Actually A Great Watch, But…

The Google Pixel Watch has been my daily driver for almost 6 months and I think that it’s a brilliant watch.

As it’s almost the 6-month mark, you would likely expect me to write a 6-month review, but I want to do something more! I want to share what it’s like to daily drive the watch from a user’s perspective.

I want to give you an idea of how I’m finding the watch in my daily life and there’s a lot to talk about!

So without any further ado, here’s how I find the watch in my everyday life…

A Day With The Pixel Watch

A usual day of my life with the Pixel Watch begins with me waking up and putting the watch on charge while I go about my morning routine.

Charging The Watch

For context, I usually wake up at 6 am and leave the house by around 7.20 am. This gives the watch plenty of time to charge. Whether it charges to 100% or not depends on what the percentage was like when I put the watch on charge.

I’m confident to say that even with the battery fully dead, I usually get between 90 and 100% worth of charge before I leave the house. On some rare occasions, I get less, but I guess that depends on how long the watch has been dead for.

When it comes to charging the watch, one of my biggest complaints is the fact that I can only charge it using the dedicated charger, which at £29 is a bit pricy. I would love to be able to wirelessly charge the watch using my Pixel 7 Pro.

Hopefully, that’s something that they will bring in on future versions of the watch.

Morning Activities

Depending on the day, I usually catch the train to work. I usually like to walk down to the train station. I don’t know what it is about walking, but there’s something therapeutic about it and it prepares me for a busy day ahead.

On other days, when I’m running late, I tend to rent an e-scooter or catch the bus if the weather is really bad. By the way, have you checked out my video about the Zwing Scooter rentals? You can check it out here.
