Best Google Pixel Watch bands 2024

When it launched, the first-gen Google Pixel Watch was a fabulous first entry for the company in the growing smartwatch space. That's still the case, so it's only fitting that you pair such a fantastic smartwatch with one (or more) fantastic bands. We recommend getting one strap for all those sweaty workout sessions and another for everyday wear. Plus, you can use (most of) these bands on both the Pixel Watch and the Pixel Watch 2.

If you're feeling fancy, it won't hurt to grab a Google Pixel Watch band for formal wear either. Google's own bands are beautiful, but they're also pricey. Fortunately, there are plenty of third-party Google Pixel Watch bands that are almost as good, if not better. Here are some of the best picks for dressing up your petite Google smartwatch, whether it's the first-gen or the second-gen variant strapped around your wrist.

Mix and match bands to complement your Google Pixel Watch

Since Google opted for the same proprietary connector for the Pixel Watch and its successor, the Pixel Watch 2, you can use most of the same bands on both smartwatches. Apart from the staggeringly expensive (but delightful) first-party options, there are loads of decent Pixel Watch bands from third-party sellers out there. Lucky for you, we've done your homework and gathered the cream of the crop right here. Not only do these include some versatile yet stunning-looking bands, but we've also rounded up some of the more budget-friendly options.

Our top pick is the practical Google Pixel Watch Woven Band. Although this strap is only available in a single size, its multipurpose design and robust make have won us over. Each colorway has subtle accents that give this Pixel Watch band an edge over the rest. The Woven Band is very comfortable and suitable for sensitive hands. If you value endurance, though, the Google Pixel Watch Stretch Band is a better match for your needs. Google offers the Stretch Band in plenty of colors and sizes, and it can withstand both sweat and water.

Those of you looking for metal link bands can't go wrong with the gorgeous Ringke Google Pixel Watch Metal One Band, which costs half as much as the original Google Pixel Watch Metal Links Band. It fits the Pixel Watch perfectly and comes in two colors: silver and black. If you can't find it in stock or need something cheaper, the Koreda Metal Link Band 2-pack is an excellent alternative. The connectors might not fit as snugly, but you pay close to nothing for it when compared to Ringke or Google's own Pixel Watch bands. Not to mention, Koreda offers its Metal Link Band in rose gold as well as silver, and you get two evergreen link and mesh designs.

Google's wearable has a lovely circular display, along with curved edges. Bands don't prevent scratches and cracks though, so that's something for a decent Google Pixel Watch screen protector to handle. Don't cheap out; get a robust screen guard for your flagship smartwatch.
