Still, there are plenty of similarly priced options with fewer audio quirks.Read full review...
Google Pixel Watch
MSRP: $349.00
Check price
Positives
Very smooth performance
Reliable heart rate sensor
Fairly accurate GPS
Negatives
Disappointing battery life
Only available in one size
Missing key health tracking features
The Bottom Line.
The Google Pixel Watch offers one of the smoothest Wear OS experiences currently available with no brand ecosystem-exclusive caveats, plus many of Fitbit's top health and fitness tracking features. That said, there is definitely room for improvement. Its small and minimalist design won't be for everyone and the battery life is painfully short. For Google's first flagship wearable, the Pixel Watch is a solid start and a good Wear OS smartwatch, but it falls short of true greatness.Read full review...

Google’s Pixel 7a represents unprecedented midrange value. It sports a best-in-class smartphone camera, a smooth 90Hz refresh rate display, excellent performance, and fantastic update commitment, with Google promising three years of Android OS support and five years of security coverage. As such, you’ll want to accompany your Pixel 7a with accessories that will last just as long as the life of the phone. Let’s run through some of the best Google Pixel 7a accessories on the market.

The best Google Pixel 7a accessories

For the uninitiated, Google doesn’t ship its Pixel 7a with a charger in the box. The device itself charges at a maximum rate of 18W, and you will want to pick up a USB PD-compliant charger to maximize that 18W charging rate on the Pixel 7a properly.

Google’s 30W USB-C charger is your best bet for picking up a charger for the Pixel 7a. The cable that comes with the Pixel 7a is a USB-C to USB-C cable, so you will have no issues with the official charging brick.

The Google Pixel 7a — to nobody’s genuine surprise — does not sport a 3.5mm headphone jack. As such, to achieve a more personal music and entertainment listening experience, you must resort to a set of wireless earbuds.

Now, we usually would recommend the Pixel Buds Pro. However, the more budget-oriented Pixel Buds A-series have received a unique new ‘Sea’ colorway to commemorate the release of the midrange Pixel 7a line. Whether or not you’ve decided to go with the Sea color for your Pixel 7a device, the Pixel Buds A sound great and look outstanding in the new color option.

Google’s new Pixel 7a now stands atop the world of budget midrange smartphones, and it will be receiving five years of Google-backed software support. If you want your device to last those five long years, you will want to guard its physical features against scratches, cracks, and scuffs with a proper case.

Google’s durable silicone cases for the Pixel 7a are a great place to start. They combine base-level protection with added aesthetics, highlighting the phone’s now iconic camera visor.

Third-party case maker Spigen is renowned for its high-quality, protective case options for mainstream smartphone and tablet devices. Regarding the Pixel 7a, you can choose between the Ultra Hybrid, Tough Armor, Rugged Armor, Thin Fit, and Liquid Air case silhouettes.  

Our choice, however, would be the special ZeroOne edition of the Spigen Ultra Hybrid for the Google Pixel 7a. It looks stunning, with an under-the-hood look at the interior layout of the Pixel 7a detailed as a graphic overtop darkened transparent polycarbonate.

The Google Pixel Watch will be a fabulous addition to your collection, especially if you’re planning on daily driving the Pixel 7a for the next five years. The Wear OS experience is smooth and refined, and it will make essential functions like managing music playback and GPS navigation a breeze. 

Anker 315 Wireless Charger

Many were a little bit surprised when Google announced that the Pixel 7a would be able to charge wirelessly. This has been a long time coming: a more budget-oriented phone can charge wirelessly via Qi.

The Pixel 7a can only charge wirelessly at a maximum rate of 7.5W, which seems slightly slow. Simultaneously, fast wireless charging has never really been a huge draw, with wired charging always being the faster option. As such, you needn’t go so far as to get the most rapid wireless charger on the market for the Pixel 7a. The Anker 315 Wireless Charging Pad will do you just fine.

Spigen Tempered Glass Screen Protector

The Pixel 7a has a flat surface display. This makes it easy to find form-fitting tempered glass screen protectors — and none are better than the Spigen package. Spigen includes its GlasTR AlignMaster frame for ease of installation. Two tempered glass screen protectors are included in the set, both of which are treated with an oleophobic (water and fingerprint-resistant) coating and rated at the 9H hardness level. 

Arkon Mounts MG279

For the unaware, Arkon makes some of the best, most secure mounts for mobile phones and tablets. The company’s line of in-vehicle suction and clip mounts for mobile devices is fantastic. If you need to mount your Pixel 7a in your vehicle, the Arkon Mounts MG279 is one of the best options out there. 

Regarding the Google Pixel 7a specifically, the included spring-loaded clamp accommodates phones up to 3.6 inches in width. The Pixel 7a is 2.87 inches wide and fits perfectly and snugly.

Google USB-C to 3.5mm Adapter

Google USB C to headphone adapter

Like most smartphones being produced these days, the Google Pixel 7a lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack. If you are a traditionalist and do not wish to part with your favorite set of wired headphones, look no further than Google’s USB-C to 3.5mm Adapter. This plugs into the phone’s USB-C port at the bottom and subsequently allows you to plug your wired headphones into the base extended jack.

Google Pixel Stand (2nd gen)

The 2nd generation Pixel Stand is a fantastic accessory for the Pixel 7a. It will always draw out the maximum 7.5W wireless charging rate while featuring Google Assistant, smart home, do-not-disturb, and photo frame functions that the Pixel 7a can take advantage of.
