New photos show the leaky Pixel Watch on a wrist

We now get a look at how the sleek Pixel Watch looks strapped to someone’s wrist, courtesy of Reddit user tagtech414, who has previously shared alleged images of Google’s as yet unannounced wearable (via 9to5Google). In the previous pictures we could only see the little computer puck itself, not attached to a strap. Although tagtech414 does not seem to have launched the device successfully yet, they have given us a better idea of ​​what it might actually be like to carry it.

According to tagtech’s Reddit post, the strap is “a kind of pain to attach the first time”, but the connection feels solid when it’s on there. Based on the photos and tagtech’s description of a strap that is “a soft silicone with good flex and doesn’t seem to show fingerprints / oil too badly,” it sounds like an Apple Watch sports strap, except a little narrower. Redditor says Google’s band is 20mm wide compared to at least 22mm for Apple’s version. In appearance, it is almost identical to the strap on a Fitbit Charge 5 (with which it also shares a sensor layout), except that it has a metal nubby instead of a plastic, and there is no embossed Fitbit logo.

Tagtech is also enthusiastic about how comfortable the watch is, saying it “feels like it’s not even there” and points out that “the crown does NOT stick into the back of my hand when I bend my wrist back or write.”

If you want to see more pictures, they have posted an entire Imgur gallery showing the watch and strap at different angles.

While it seems very possible that this is a legitimate Pixel Watch (it’s the spit picture of past leaks and renderings), tagtech414’s story of how they got past it is still pretty bizarre. Redditor claims that a friend found the device at a bar and gave it to them. The reason why there were no pictures of the watch that were used originally? The strap and watch were “packed separately” and the friend “forgot to bring them,” claimed tagtech414 in an AMA.
