- An alleged Pixel Watch was recently left at a Chicago restaurant.
- New images of the device show what the watch looks like with the straps attached.
- The leaker describes it as “a beautiful and comfortable watch”.
Over the weekend, we leaked images of an alleged Google Pixel Watch that was “accidentally” left at a Chicago restaurant. Although we received photos of both the watch and the straps, we haven’t had a chance to see the straps attached to the watch…until now.
The same person who deployed Android Central with the original images posted new photos on Reddit wearing the alleged wear pixel clock. From the pictures, the smartwatch looks incredibly elegant as the straps curve seamlessly into its case.
According to the Reddit post, the silicone bands are apparently 20mm bands and were initially difficult to fit onto the device, something they expect might change as they get more used to the device. However, once fitted, the straps are “extremely secure and don’t feel like they’ll come loose easily”. Also, when wearing the watch on your wrist, the chassis appears to feel a lot thinner than it looks. Compared to a Galaxy Watch, “it feels like it’s not there.”
The leaker also touches the crown, the most protruding part of the watch case. Despite this, it does not hit the back of the wearer’s hand when the wrist is bent, which is something that many users complain about some The best Android smartwatches by Fossil.
All in all, the rumored Pixel Watch in its full physical glory is described as “undoubtedly a beautiful and comfortable watch”, which already bodes well for Google’s first smartwatch. Of course, the watch is likely a prototype or pre-production unit, so things could change between now and when it officially launches.
The only missing piece is Wear OS 3 as we have yet to see how the new operating system looks on the actual device. Still, we can’t help but get excited to try the watch for ourselves.
