The 2nd generation of the Google Pixel Watch is the brand’s latest addition to their line of smartwatches. It’s quickly becoming a top choice for Android phone users.

Those looking to use their old watch case on the new one should take note that it will still be compatible.

Manufacturers of cases have started including warnings, stating that cases for the original “Pixel Watch” are not suitable for use with the Pixel Watch 2.
