Google Pixel Buds

Google Pixel Buds

Many will argue that the Pixel Buds are not the best pair of truly wireless earbuds out there, and well everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But for those buying a new Pixel smartphone, they are the best for them.

The Pixel Buds offer a ton of great features that work really well with the Pixel 5. Including the ability to fast pair. There's also Google Assistant and real-time translation in your ears. These work on other Android smartphones too, but they work the best on a Pixel smartphone.

Best PopSocket

PopSockets: PopGrip

PopSockets: PopGrip

The PopGrip from PopSockets is a really good accessory for really any phone. And the reason why this is the best PopSocket you can buy right now is because it does allow you to swap out the top. So if you want to change the color, you can do so.

PopGrip is really great because it allows you to hold onto your phone much easier, especially for larger phones, but even works great on smaller ones like the Pixel 5. But it also doubles as a sort of kickstand for your smartphone. Allowing you to use it on long flights to watch a movie or two, without having to hold your phone the whole time. It's a really genius invention, and it's something that everyone should have.

You can attach the PopGrip to your case, so that it doesn't ruin your phone too.

Best battery pack

RAVPower Portable Charger 20000mAh PD 3.0 Power Bank

RAVPower Portable Charger 20000mAh PD 3.0 Power Bank

The RAVPower Portable Charger 20000mAh PD 3.0 Power Bank is a really great option for a battery pack for the Pixel 5. Because it offers fast charging, and we all know that Pixels are not known for having incredible battery life. Though the Pixel 5 should last longer than any of its predecessors.

It also uses two USB-A ports with fast charging, so you can charge other devices at the same time. RAVPower also includes two more USB-C ports for input, which is really nice, when you need to charge this battery up pretty quickly.

Best USB-C Cables

Anker Powerline II USB-C to USB-C

Anker Powerline II USB-C to USB-C

It's always a good idea to get another USB-C cable or two, to have around your home. While you probably don't need one at your office right now, since the majority of us are not actually going to work. It is good to have one in the car and other places around your home.

This is a USB-C to USB-C cable that is capable of USB-C PD speeds, so it can charge your phone pretty quickly too. That's important in this day and age of fast charging.

Best screen protector

OMOTON Screen Protectors

OMOTON [4-Pack] Screen Protector

Amazon has a four-pack of OMOTON screen protectors, for the Google Pixel 5, for under $9.

Now obviously, since this is for a four-pack, these are not tempered glass screen protectors. Instead, these are plastic screen protectors. So they won't feel as high quality when you're using your phone. But they will still protect your phone from scratches and drops, which is the important thing here.

Best smartwatch/fitness tracker

Fitbit Versa 3

Fitbit Versa 3

The Fitbit Versa 3 is the best smartwatch to go with the Pixel 5, since Google hasn't made its own smartwatch yet. And Google is in the process or acquiring Fitbit now.

The Versa 3 is the latest in the Versa line for Fitbit. It offers up all of the fitness tracking that you'd expect from Fitbit. Including the ability to track your steps, your workouts, calories burned and much more. It can also deliver some notifications to your wrist.

Best USB-C PD Charger

Anker PowerPort Atom PD 1

Anker PowerPort Atom PD 1

The Anker PowerPort Atom PD 1 is the perfect USB-C PD charger to use with the Pixel 5. While it does still come with one in the box, it never hurts to have a spare somewhere in your home or at work.

This is a 30W charger – and yes, the Pixel 5 tops out at 18W, but this will work on other devices too. It also uses Gallium Nitride or GaN, which makes this charger a lot smaller than you're probably used too. Which is why we think it is the best option. Since you can easily toss this into your bag when you're traveling – if we are ever able to do that again.

Best Car Mount

Spigen Kuel S40 Stealth Car Mount

Spigen Kuel S40 Stealth Car Mount

This is one of the most interesting looking car mounts out there, and it really doesn't even look like a car mount.

The Spigen Kuel S40 stealth Car Mount is a minimalist car mount for those that don't want to use magnets. This is a car mount that folds down when it is not in use. Just open it up and stick your phone in the mount, in landscape mode and you are good to go. It's a good option, because it is fairly small when it is not in use, so that it is not blocking your view of the road all that much.

Spigen offers the Kuel S40 Stealth car mount in only one color. Which is black and blue, so it can blend in with your car a bit more.
