With 18mm and 20mm bands, the white canvas strap is made specifically for the Nokia Steel HR and has stainless steel quick release spring bars — making it easier to attach.

Where is the Google Pixel Watch?

We've been expecting Google to release its own smartwatch for quite some time, but there was no sign of the long-rumored device at Google's Pixel hardware event in New York. While the Pixel 4 and 4 XL were widely leaked, the lack of solid detail about a Pixel Watch was perhaps a sign that it’s not ready for prime time just yet.

Rumors of a Google smartwatch have been circulating for years now and it would make a lot of sense given Google’s hardware lineup, potentially encouraging more people to commit to Google’s ecosystem. A smartwatch that seamlessly integrates with the Pixel phones, the Pixelbook, and Google’s smart home devices would be desirable for many. Strong support for Google Pay and the next generation Google Assistant would make it a useful device to have on your wrist.
