So, here's how to change movement reminders on the Pixel Watch.

If you decided to turn off the Reminders to Move entirely, you shouldn't get those notifications reminding you to get up and get in your steps. But if you've enabled the feature, you'll get those reminders based on the parameters you entered in the settings.

Fitbit is a powerful platform, which is why its wearables are some of the best fitness trackers on the planet and are helping the Pixel Watch stand out in the smartwatch field. From monitoring your heart rate to tracking your sleep, the Pixel Watch is here to help. Sometimes that means nudging you from time to time so you can reach your activity goals.
