Best Google Pixel Watch bands 2023

The Google Pixel Watch is everything fans have been asking for and more. It's only fitting that you pair such a fantastic smartwatch with one or two fantastic bands. We recommend getting a strap for sweaty workout sessions and another for everyday wear.

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 pricy. Fortunately, there are plenty of third-party Pixel Watch bands that are almost as good. Here are your best picks to dress up your petite Google smartwatch.

Mix and match bands to compliment your Google Pixel Watch

Since Google opted for a propriety connector on the Pixel Watch band, your options aren't as diverse as other Android smartwatches. When the Pixel Watch first launched, most of the best-fitting Pixel Watch bands available were the staggeringly expensive (but delightful) first-party options. Thankfully, there are loads of decent Pixel Watch bands from third-party sellers out there now. Lucky for you, we've done your homework and gathered the cream of the crop right here. Not only do these include some versatile bands that look stunning, but they are also more budget-friendly than Google's own bands.

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 black, and you get two evergreen link and mesh designs.

Don't neglect your Pixel Watch's needs. The Google wearable has a lovely circular display with curved edges. Bands don't prevent scratches and cracks. 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.
