Google’s claimed 24 hours of battery life on the Pixel Watch hasn’t been easy to achieve for everyone, but if you want to raise your odds of hitting this full-day mark, you have to enable bedtime mode when you go to sleep.

Bedtime mode turns off the always-on display and disables notifications (only allowing alarms and priority/repeat callers to vibrate or ring your watch) while still tracking your sleep. The reduced disturbances are essential when you’re trying to rest, but they also have the positive side effect of using less battery.
