The duo's current contracts were due to expire in the summer, but the club have moved to keep them at Stamford Bridge.
Rookie keeper Pidgeley made one appearance for Chelsea last season in the final home game against Charlton.
Promising defender Watt figured twice in the first-team last term and he is highly-rated within the corridors of Stamford Bridge.
"I can't see him [Jose Mourinho] dropping the likes of John Terry and that to play me in vital games but, as the boss has said, I'll get a chance," Watt told Sky Sports News.
"I'm happy there to be learning, playing with the best, training with the best and learning with the best so I couldn't be anywhere better.
"I've got an offer for another year so maybe I'll take that and see about going out on loan.
"I've got to start playing regular first team football somewhere to see about furthering my career."
Meanwhile, Chelsea have released four more players - Sebastian Kneissl, Ben Hudell, Sam Tillen and Danny Woodards.
Tillen has already sorted himself out with a new club after signing a one-year deal with Brentford.
