Google is also working on solid metal bands akin to most Rolex and Omega watches.

For reference, Apple, which introduced its own smartwatch back in September 2014, offers a link bracelet priced at $349.

Google also has two types of leather bands, differentiated by style and shade. Fabric and stretch bands will be less expensive. The stretch band also takes after Apple Watch's braided solo loop model.

Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc. GOOGL GOOG, closed Thursday's session down 3.40% at $2,120.67, according to Benzinga Pro data. It opened Friday at $2,122.49.
