Google decided to explain how it calculated battery life for its Pixel Watch smartwatches.

Google explains how it calculated 24 hours of battery life for the Pixel Watch

Recall that Google itself talks about 24 hours, but real tests have shown that autonomy is actually very mediocre.

So, 24 hours of work can be obtained with something like the following scenario:

  • 240 notifications
  • 280 time checks
  • 5 minute LTE phone call
  • 45-minute LTE and GPS workout with downloaded music from YouTube
  • 50 minutes of navigation (Google Maps) when connected to a phone via Bluetooth
  • The watch runs with default settings, including AlwaysOn Display turned off.

Thus, firstly, in order to get those very days of work, you need, firstly, not to turn on AlwaysOn Display, secondly, forget about sleep tracking, and thirdly, do not have long daily workouts. For example, a 9to5google review showed that it is possible to achieve the claimed autonomy even with sleep tracking, but the reviewer did not use the watch for training. That is, as usual, everything very much depends on the scenarios for the use of each user.

Now Apple Watch Ultra can be used to the fullest

Despite the fact that the Apple Watch Ultra has been on sale for some time, only now the watch has received one of the important applications.

Now Apple Watch Ultra can be used to the fullest.  Oceanic+ diving app now available

Apple today announced the launch of Oceanic+. It is this application that actually turns an Apple watch into a diving computer. Since the watch can be submerged to a depth of 40 meters, this is not just marketing.

Interestingly, Apple did not develop the application itself. Even in the press release, the company says that it was created together with Huish Outdoors, which specializes in diving products.

Huish Outdoors specialists note that one of their main tasks was to make the software intuitive and convenient, since diving computers are usually very specific in this matter.

Oceanic+, among other things, allows you, for example, to plan your dive by specifying time, depth and other parameters in advance. The application is able, based on the input data, to calculate the no-decompression time, an indicator used to determine the time limit for a diver at a certain depth. The planner also takes into account diving conditions, including tides, water temperature, and even up-to-date information from the diving community, such as visibility and current strength.
