There is new information about the Pixel Watch and again there is good news for all potential buyers of the Google Smartwatch. As more certifications can now confirm, the Pixel Watch will most likely come with a charger that attaches to the back of the watch with a magnet. So basically with a variant that we know from many comparable devices. But there is a welcome difference.

Charger details released
Google doesn’t give the other end of the cable a USB-A port, but the more modern USB-C socket. This makes a very crucial point possible, which I very much celebrate. You will also be able to charge the watch with your own Pixel smartphone on the go without needing any adapters. Simply connect the power adapter to the phone via USB-C and activate the charging function.
Wireless charging via Battery Share is conceivable
Things could go even better for interested buyers. If the Google Pixel Watch uses the Qi standard for the charger, the watch can also be charged wirelessly directly from the back of the smartphone (Pixel 5 and higher). That should be a very likely use case that Google has hopefully considered. This means that the cable is superfluous on the go, but is always a good option.
Google Pixel Watch with USB-C: Quickly recharge your smartwatch with your smartphone
Since the watch probably has a battery of around 300 mAh, the smartphone is not completely drained when charging. The watch’s fairly small battery is in contrast to a typical smartphone’s full 4,000 to 5,000 mAh. In any case, I am very pleased about these new details. You can probably expect a lot in terms of quality because a well-known Apple producer has been commissioned with the cable.
