The Google Pixel Watch is receiving its first over-the-air update with some bug fixes and improvements

In addition to the first stable Android 13 QPR1 build for Pixel devices and the December 2022 Android security patches, Google is also rolling out the first OTA update for the Pixel Watch this week. However, instead of new features, the update brings some bug fixes and improvements to Google’s first Wear OS smartwatch and the December 2022 Android security patches.

9to5Google Reports indicate that the first on-device OTA update for the Pixel Watch (firmware version RWD9.220429.070) brings four noteworthy changes:

  • Fixes and improvements for Hands-Free Profile (HFP) calling.
  • Battery saver enable/disable one click support added.
  • Fixes an issue where watch face complications sometimes did not display the correct data.
  • Fixed an issue where the workout layout was sometimes cut off.

As mentioned earlier, the OTA update also bumps the watch up to the December 5, 2022 security patch. If you haven’t already received the update, Google says it should hit all supported Pixel Watch devices running Wear OS 3.5 over the next few weeks. You can check this manually by heading to the Settings app on your watch and going to File system updates section inside System existing. Before installing the update, make sure your Pixel Watch has at least 50% battery remaining and is connected to Wi-Fi.

While the OTA update doesn’t bring any significant features, the Pixel Watch recently received new tiles for sunrise/sunset and favorite contacts, along with an updated Google Keep app. Google also introduced a new Fitbit Sleep Profile for better sleep tracking, which works in sync with the smartwatch to provide users with additional sleep tracking information and tips for better sleep.
