Before we get to the bands, though, here are some other articles that may interest you –
Let’s get to the best Pixel Watch straps now.
1. ECSEM Stainless Steel Band
A stainless steel band looks premium and classy, especially since it’s used on high-end conventional watches. If you like how a mechanical timepiece looks on your wrist, well, you can achieve the same look with this stainless steel band hooked up to your Pixel Watch. The colors are also matched to the frame of the Pixel Watch so it almost seems like a first-party accessory.
While the black option will suit everybody, the rose gold variant is primarily for women. The size is standard but you get a link remover in the box so if the band is too big for your wrist, you can take off a few links and adjust it to the required size. The brand offers 1 year of warranty so if the color starts to fade or the links break, you can claim a replacement.
Why you should buy it: It’s stylish and would look great with formal attire.
2. Miimall Silicone Band
The Miimall silicone band is available in a variety of colors so you can pick up multiple bands to match your outfits daily. There are plenty of holes on the band that make it breathable which is a great feature to have when working out. You get 2 sizes — Small and Large — so pick the one that suits your wrist the best.
There’s a stainless steel locking clasp that holds the watch in place on your wrist. Most bands are black on the outside but have different colors on the inside which provides a two-tone look.
Further, you also get the option to get a band with a different exterior color like red or white with the interior being black. Regardless of which one you get, this is an attractive silicone band that’s also comfortable to wear.
Why you should buy it: This band is great for those who work out regularly.
3. NTidea Nylon Stretch Band
Since nylon is a soft material, the NTidea Pixel Watch stretch band rests on your wrist and feels like you haven’t worn a smartwatch at all. You get accustomed to it very soon since it’s lightweight and doesn’t rub against your skin or cause any friction. The band attaches to your wrist via velcro and doesn’t move around once it’s in place.
Unlike a buckle, the velcro attachment means you can fit around your wrist with utmost precision which results in a comfortable experience. If you type a lot and have to rest your wrist on a table for a long duration, we would highly recommend you pick up this nylon band for your Pixel Watch.
Besides, it’s available in many colors. Note that if you plan to work out with it, the band absorbs your sweat and takes some time to dry so keep this in mind.
Why you should buy it: This is an all-purpose band. You can use it while working out, wear it to work, sleep with it — essentially all day.
4. Magnetic Milanese Loop
This is yet another metallic strap that is slightly different in terms of design when compared to the first band on this list. It has closely knit metallic strands that combine to form a nice texture. It looks and feels premium when worn, making it another option for those who wish to wear their Pixel Watch with formal attire.
If you’re wearing a suit, a Milanese loop would go well with it. Or it could also be a good option if you’re heading to a party and want a classy look on your wrist. It’s also much lighter compared to metallic bands that have links. Another added advantage is that the magnetic latch means you don’t have to worry about the size since there are no links to remove.
Why you should buy it: It’s a premium Pixel Watch metal strap that you can wear on special occasions for a classy look.
5. San Jeirie Genuine Leather Band
Apart from when you’re working out, the San Jeirie leather band for the Pixel Watch suits pretty much any other use case. Whether you’re going to wear it to work or a casual get-together with friends, a leather band is never out of fashion. It provides a feel and might even make the Pixel Watch look like a conventional analog watch when paired with the right watch face.
The band is made with genuine leather and comes with a metallic buckle to secure it in place. If you get a lighter color, you will be able to observe the leather patina over time which will create its patterns to give you a unique look.
Why you should buy it: If you’re looking for a band that makes your smartwatch look like a conventional watch, this is the way to go.
6. Google Woven Band
The Google Pixel Watch woven band is comfortable to wear but as per the reviews, the comfort wears off if you wear it for long durations. This is mainly due to the clasp which is an unnecessary addition in our opinion. Google should have opted for a velcro-based solution to keep the band secure or should have just opted for an elastic fit like the solo loop from Apple.
It has an attractive design, though, especially in the lemongrass colorway. It’s water-resistant so you can use it while working out. If you don’t want to use it all day, this can be the band mainly due to its looks. It’s quite expensive, though, but if you like the look, you’ve got to spend!
Why you should buy it: It looks attractive and feels comfortable albeit when not worn for too long.
Match Your Watch
Since we wear smartwatches every single day, they have become a part of our attire which is why getting a good band is important to match your watch to your outfit. All of these Pixel Watch bands are good in their regard, so get the one that suits your usage the best. Or as we mentioned earlier, get yourself multiple bands for different uses and keep switching between them.
