Google held its big hardware event where it officially announced its newest Pixel smartphone and first Pixel smartwatch. And it looks like if you want to watch 4K videos on YouTube, you're soon going to have to pay.

But that's just the news. Below, you'll find a recap of all the cool new gadgets that were announced this week.

The main differences are that the Pixel 7 Pro has a bigger display, more advanced camera (specifically for zoom) and a longer lasting battery. Both are pretty affordable for flagship smartphones, too.

Google announced a second-generation model of its smart doorbell, the Nest Doorbell — and it's a modest update. It looks basically identical to its predecessor and has all the same capabilities.

The difference is that it has better local storage capabilities — specifically it can store an hour worth of video footage even if the Wi-Fi goes down temporarily — and it supports HDR, so the video quality it captures should look a little bit better no matter the time of day or the lighting conditions. Available in four finishes: green, gray, beige or white.

Price: $180

The kicker is that they come with $100 price tag, which is very competitive.

Price: $100
