Google is using the Pixel Watch companion app to run a simple survey that’s seeing a pretty wide rollout.
The survey, which appears in the main feed, starts by asking “how satisfied are you with your Pixel Watch,” with a scale from very unsatisfied to very satisfied.
Google then asks what you like and dislike across seven categories:
- Battery life
- Hardware design
- Fitness & health features
- Ease of use
- Software design
- Google Assistant
After a few weeks of usage, battery life should definitely even out with a full day of use more than possible in our experience. Hardware-wise, some definitely want a larger device, while Google has been slow to enable health features (like SpO2) found even on basic Fitbit trackers. Meanwhile, Wear OS 3 is pretty simple from a core navigation standpoint.
In terms of issues, Google lists five:
- Watch running slowly or lagging
- Crashes or glitches
- WiFi/Bluetooth/LTE connection issues
- Fitness or health tracking inaccuracy
- Physical discomfort from wearing
Despite the older processor, Google certainly optimized the UI, with future models set to only benefit from newer chips. The Pixel Watch, after three monthly updates, has been relatively bug-free in our experience, while connectivity issues are relatively rare. The last two bullet points are more subjective with every person being different.
