As for the color options, although Google hasn’t revealed them yet, industry insiders have previously suggested that the recycled stainless steel case of the Google Pixel Watch will come in three colors:
Of course, the smartwatch’s interchangeable wristband is what really matters when it comes to customization, and we can expect plenty of options – from the simple silicone band shown today, to the third-party bands that will inevitably be released after the watch itself comes out. . More details on when that will be below.
