FAQs

The Pixel Watch is only available in one case size so all Pixel Watch bands are compatible with the device. However, sizes may vary in terms of band length.

The best band for your Pixel Watch comes down to your needs. A silicone or woven band offers comfort and flexibility if you want the device for fitness tracking. For dressing up the device, a metal band may be appropriate.

Google and Fitbit each sell a number of attractive replacement Pixel Watch bands, but these come at a steep price. For more affordable options, shop the bands available from third-party retailers such as Amazon.
