If you're shopping for a smartwatch and you're an Android fan, don't sleep on Google's Pixel Watch. The first iteration earned a CNET Editors' Choice Award when it first hit shelves in the fall of 2022, with reviewer Lisa Eadicicco describing it as the "Apple Watch alternative that Android device owners have been waiting for." With the 2023 release of the Google Pixel Watch 2 -- which Eadicicco described as having many of the perks and features she had hoped the first version would have -- it's a great time to upgrade to the latest model, as it's one of the best smartwatches on the market right now, or cash in on deals for the previous-gen model.  

How much does the Pixel Watch cost?

The first-gen Pixel Watch is available with or without cellular connectivity. Prices originally started at $350 for the Wi-Fi version and $400 for the cellular model in the US. With the release of the Pixel Watch 2, prices on the first Pixel Watch have dropped. Here's how the pricing currently breaks down:

For the Pixel Watch 2, pricing on the updated model has followed the initial pricing on the first generation and is listed as follows:

  • Pixel Watch 2 (Wi-Fi): $350
  • Pixel Watch 2 (cellular): $400  

Regardless of which Pixel Watch most piques your interest, our roundup of Pixel Watch deals will help you get your hands on one without paying full price. We've gathered the best Pixel Watch deals from retailers and carriers available right now below to help you find one with extra savings.   

Best Pixel Watch 2 deals

The Pixel Watch 2 has a similar design to its predecessor, but it comes with several key upgrades that should make this Android wearable worth the investment for a lot of Google fans, including upgraded performance, automatic workout detection, added safety features, stress tracking capabilities, a new heart rate sensor and more. While we haven't had the chance to try it out yet, we expect these changes to generate a lot of interest.

Watch this: Pixel Watch 2 First Look: Google's Smartwatch Gets An Upgrade

Finishes for the Pixel Watch 2 include matte-black with an obsidian active band and champagne gold with a hazel active band -- both of which are also available on the older model -- as well as polished silver with a bay active band and polished silver with a porcelain active band. If you're upgrading from a Pixel Watch, your data can be transferred through Google One.

The battery life for this smartwatch should last 24 hours, according to Google. This watch includes an always-on display and faster charging than the previous model. Some carriers -- such as AT&T and T-Mobile -- are offering discounts on the Pixel Watch 2 with the purchase of a new Pixel 8 Pro -- but below you will only find deals that do not require you to purchase another device.  

Google is currently offering two years of free data for your device when you purchase the Pixel Watch 2 LTE. This current offer is set to expire Jan. 31. 

In addition, you can score some savings via credit if you have an eligible watch to trade in. Trading in the first-gen Pixel Watch will get you up to $110, while an Apple Watch 8 will net up to $125 and a Galaxy Watch 5 or 5 Pro can earn you up to $50 in credit.

Verizon has a solid trade-in deal on the Pixel Watch 2. If you already have a smartwatch and want to upgrade, Verizon is offering up to $180 off with an eligible trade-in. You must have an eligible plan for your smartwatch; the trade-in credit is split up between 36 bill credits, in credit applied over 36 months. 

Best Buy doesn't have any direct deals on the Pixel Watch 2 right now, but if you have an old device you're willing to part with, an eligible trade-in can score you up to $175 in credit.

While Target is not offering direct discounts on the Pixel Watch 2 (Wi-Fi and LTE), it's worth noting that Target RedCard holders can get 5% off their purchase, which can save a few bucks. 

T-Mobile is taking half off the Pixel Watch 2, dropping it down to $200 when you buy one on a new line. The discount is applied as bill credits over 24 months.

Best Pixel Watch deals

Google's first Pixel Watch features a round display, interchangeable bands and customizable watch faces. The Pixel Watch is available in four different finishes: matte-black with an obsidian active band, polished silver with a charcoal active band, polished silver with a chalk active band or champagne gold with a hazel active band. The bands are interchangeable, and many third-party options are already available for endless customization options. 

Wear OS has been redesigned for the round display, and the watch features all of the Google apps you would expect, plus fitness features powered by Fitbit smarts. It runs on an Exynos 9110 processor along with a coprocessor and should last for 24 hours per charge, according to Google. It includes accurate heart-rate tracking and can take an ECG from the wrist, and will be updated with the ability to take blood-oxygen saturation measurements. As with the Apple Watch, fall detection is built in.

Interestingly, unlike other Wear OS smartwatches, the Pixel Watch is only compatible with Android. In a move akin to Apple's approach with the Apple Watch, you'll have to remain within the Google ecosystem to enjoy Google's new wearable. 

Like with the Pixel Watch 2, Google is currently offering two years of free data for your device when you purchase the Pixel Watch LTE. This current offer is set to expire Jan. 31. 

Plus, you can get some money back when trading in a smartwatch. While the company does tout up to $175, the reality is you would need to trade in a more advanced model to get that sort of payout. Most smartwatches are going to earn you closer to $50 in trade-in value. 

Amazon has slashed the price of the previous-gen Google Pixel Watch LTE, making it easier to afford. While the discounts available vary by color variant, the matte black is currently discounted by $131, bringing the price to just $269. The savings for the Wi-Fi version are a little less but still decent. You can save up to $92 right now, bringing the hazel variant to $258. 

Best Buy doesn't have direct deals on the Pixel Watch right now, though My Best Buy Plus and Total members can save $61 on the LTE model. You can also get additional trade-in credit if you have an eligible device from Fitbit, Garmin, Apple or Samsung -- with the largest discounts going to newer Apple models. New subscribers can also get three months of YouTube Premium and three months of Google One (100GB) for free with their purchase.

Like with the Pixel Watch 2, Target is not offering direct discounts on the Pixel Watch right now, which includes both the Wi-Fi and LTE versions. It's worth noting that Target RedCard holders can get 5% off their purchase, which can save you a little cash on your purchase.
