Pixel Watch March major update is coming

The Pixel Watch has received three monthly updates thus far, and the upcoming one, scheduled for March, appears to be larger and may include new features as well as bug fixes.

In addition to raising the level of security patches, the December update included: Improvements and fixes for hands-free profile (HFP) calling, single-tap battery saver enable/disable support coming soon in a future update, a problem in which watch face complications occasionally did not display the correct data, and a problem in which exercise layout was occasionally cut off.

A “fix to address 3rd party watch faces turning off after 15 minutes with always on display (AOD) enabled” was all that was included in the January update, while the most recent security patch was included in the February update.

The versions of the three updates were all very similar (RWD9.220429.xxx), with only the last three digits changing to indicate that only minor changes had been made.

Verizon released RWDA.230114.008 today with a larger versioning jump, including the Android Security Patch Level for March 2023. The previous month’s changelog remains unchanged: The most recent Android Security patches are included in the current software update for your device.

Even though Google has not yet made any announcements, the release date, is odd considering the patch level. Until now, there have been no on-watch updates.

We shouldn’t anticipate anything until March, but it’s possible that Verizon released the changelog too early. The Pixel Watch has been updated by Google on the same day as the Pixel phones up to this point.

Fall Detection and Watch Unlock were made possible by an update to the Pixel Watch companion app earlier this month, so we can already anticipate a larger update.
