Google’s fixing the Pixel Watch’s tardy alarms
Google is rolling out a fix for a bug that made Pixel Watch alarms go off at the wrong time. The Clock app update will be delivered via the Play Store, according to a statement from the company provided by spokesperson Sofia Giovannello.
Reports of the problem started cropping up last month, with users reporting that their smartwatch alarms would sometimes go off a few minutes early or late. Apparently, they could miss the mark by up to 10 minutes, which could be the difference between making a meeting and missing it.
According to Giovannello, you can make sure you’ll get the fix when it’s available by making sure you’ve enabled the auto-update apps setting on your watch in Play Store > Settings. That makes it so that it’ll automatically download updates when it’s on a charger and connected to Wi-Fi.
