In the community post, Google writes, “This update enables Pixel Watch 2 users to pair and manage their device. At the same time, this update also comes with the support for Wear 4 which is available for both Pixel Watch and Pixel Watch 2 users. We have also redesigned the Pixel Watch App experience.”

One of the new features Google has added to the Pixel Watch 2 is included in the update and this allows a Pixel Watch 2 user to pair with a different phone without having to perform a factory reset. This is a big deal since no one likes to perform a factory reset.

The complete changelist published by Google is as follows.

What’s included in the October 2023 update:

  • Support for Pixel Watch 2
  • Support for Wear 4 features and updates, which include:
  • Back-up with Google One
  • Restore during watch setup from the available back-ups
  • Ability to transfer Watch to a new Phone without factory reset
  • Factory reset protection during watch setup
  • Redesigned experience for the Pixel Watch app
  • New settings and education under “Safety & emergency” section *
  • DND (Do Not Disturb) and BTM (Bedtime Mode) mode mirroring for Pixel Watch 2 users under the “Notifications” setting for Pixel phone users *
  • Bug fixes to improve the quality of the app
