It's been over a month since the Google Pixel Watch hit store shelves. Unlike most of our favorite smartwatches, the Pixel Watch doesn't use the Wear OS Android app, instead relying on its Pixel Watch app to manage the device from your phone. Today, Google announced that the app is getting its first post-release update to fix eSim bugs and make the watch's Fitbit integration more visible.

The update, beginning today, doesn't seem particularly noteworthy outside of being the app's first since the Pixel Watch launched. Google's patch notes focus primarily on small changes to Fitbit features, including adding "Fitbit integration setting" and "sync information" to the app's home screen. The notes also mention streamlining the Fitbit setup experience, saying that integration "is easy to set up through a single tap from within the Pixel Watch App."

The update also lets users go through a guided tour of Pixel Watch features from the app's Tips & support menu at any time. Previously, this tutorial only played during the watch setup. Finally, the update promises to fix bugs "related to the eSim setup" — an issue we at AP never experienced. While the Pixel Watch app technically got a pre-release update a couple of days before the watch was available, the rollout beginning today marks its first post-launch update.

The update will only be available for some at a time; Google says the rollout will take up to a few weeks. If you're eager to take that 3D tour of Pixel Watch features again, keep your eyes on the Play Store to know when you can grab the update.
