The Reddit user who leaked hands-on photos of the Pixel Watch has finally shown what the smartwatch looks like on a wrist with its official bands attached. While Google's watch bands are a 'pain to attach the first time', the Pixel Watch is said to be considerably more comfortable than any other smartwatch that u/tagtech1414 has tried.

Reddit user u/tagtech1414 has provided more information about the Pixel Watch, Google's first smartwatch. Previously, u/tagtech1414 shared hands-on photos of the smartwatch and its proprietary bands separately, covered separately. Subsequently, they have uploaded photos of the Pixel Watch being worn, which we have embedded throughout this article.

According to u/tagtech1414, the Pixel Watch is 'the most comfortable watch' that they have ever worn. Purportedly, the smartwatch's shape makes it feel thinner than its footprint would suggest. For example, u/tagtech1414 draws a comparison with their Galaxy Watch, which they claim feels more substantial on their wrist. In fact, the Reddit user goes as far as to say that the Pixel Watch 'feels like it's not even there' when it is being worn.

Moreover, u/tagtech1414 adds that the Pixel Watch's crown does not dig into their wrist when typing or if they flex their wrist backwards either. Presumably, the Pixel Watch achieves this because of its crown placement, which is much higher than on an Apple Watch or a recent Galaxy Watch. Incidentally, u/tagtech1414 reports that the Pixel Watch measures 40 mm diagonally, but its display only measures 30 mm in diameter, such is the thickness of its bezels. With that being said, the Pixel Watch weighs 36 g, including its proprietary watch band. Furthermore, u/tagtech1414 had this to say about the watch bands, which are 20 mm wide:

Kind of a pain to attach the first time, but I imagine it would be easier after I know how to properly attach them. They are extremely secure and don't feel like they will easily release.
