Besides the never-before-seen Metal Mesh strap, there was another Pixel watch accessory that Google ultimately didn’t release: the Coral Active Band.
Before the hardware event last October, Google sent out an email that included a photo of the Coral Active Band that ultimately didn’t appear alongside Lemongrass, Charcoal, Obsidian, Chalk, and Hazel.
Obsidian and Chalk are the two straightforward options for light and dark that Google provides for most of its products. Charcoal and Hazelnut are the slightly lighter variants (that probably didn’t have to be), while Lemongrass was the fun color.
Amazon lists October 7, 2022 as the “first availability date,” while we even get some kind of box. It’s definitely more vibrant than any of the current active bands. It is on par with the Rose Stretch Band and Coral Woven Band.
It’s unclear why Google never released it since the band was too long to show up in marketing images and live samples, but the Pixel Watch 2 is supposed to launch with an updated band set.
On that note, four Pixel Watch bands are currently $10 off in the US Google Store through July 18, 2023 at 11:59 PM PST:
