Google is rolling out Wear OS 4 to the original Pixel Watch

Google is bringing Wear OS 4 to its first Pixel Watch. In an announcement, Google says the update will start rolling out today and continue “over the coming weeks,” depending on your carrier and device. The Wear OS 4 update will bring several new features to the Pixel Watch, including the Google Calendar app, better accessibility features, enhanced notifications, and the new Safety Check feature that will prompt you to confirm whether you’re safe after a specified period of time. If you don’t respond, the watch will automatically notify your emergency contacts. Wear OS 4 also introduces the ability to transfer your Pixel Watch data to a new phone without a factory reset as well as a way to back up your data and settings from your Pixel Watch when you’re ready to upgrade to a new one. However, one Wear OS 4 feature Google doesn’t mention in its announcement is Safety Signal, which is available with the Pixel Watch 2 through a Fitbit Premium subscription. This feature lets you connect your Pixel Watch to an LTE network to enable emergency features even if you don’t have a carrier plan.
