The Pixel Watch is a solid debut as Google’s debut smartwatch. However, it’s still missing a handful of features requested by early adopters found on similar devices. Fortunately, today begins the rollout of a much-requested feature: fall detection.
Fall detection is a crucial health and safety feature that all smartwatches have better, and now the Pixel Watch with its addition finally joins the ranks of the Apple Watch and Galaxy Watch.
After the Pixel Watch launched last year without fall detection capabilities, fans were rightly upset. With all the health features it offers, the Pixel Watch was missing something that could be considered one of the most important. Google heard fan feedback and announced that the company would be adding it in a future Pixel Watch update. In the March 2023 Pixel Watch update, which went live today, fall detection was finally added alongside a laundry list of other features.
While it may seem a little trivial at first, fall detection is actually an incredibly important and potentially life-saving health feature. Ever since fall detection became a common feature in flagship smartwatches, there have been countless reports of tits saving lives and helping people who would otherwise have been left without help. Now that the Pixel Watch has it, users can finally breathe a sigh of relief knowing they’ve got the help they need when they fall and can’t get back up while walking away from their phone.
Hopefully the Pixel Watch can better justify its pricing now that its health and wellness features are beginning to catch up with the other devices on the market.
Note that if you want to enable fall detection on your Pixel Watch, you may still have to wait for the update while it continues to roll out. Luckily, Google’s updates tend to roll out fairly quickly, so you won’t have to wait long. To ensure your Pixel Watch is updated once the patch goes live, make sure you turn on automatic updates.
