The best Apple Watch bands:

Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best Apple Watch bands as new ones are released.


1. Apple Sport Loop

Apple Watch Sport Loop

Let’s start with a few of the best Apple Watch bands available straight from Apple. The regular sports band is nice, but there is no doubt the Apple Sport Loop will give your Apple Watch a much nicer look. The softer nylon fabric will also prove to be much more comfortable and breathable. It’s relatively cheap at $49, and it is a good option for those who want more comfort and a touch of uniqueness from a trusted brand like Apple. This Apple Watch band is available in a plethora of colors, too.


2. Apple Milanese Loop

Apple Milanese Loop

Apple’s Milanese Loop is certainly one of the classiest Apple Watch bands on the market. It offers style in a sleek form factor that goes along with Apple’s clean design language. You can get a hold of one of these for $99, which isn’t cheap, but also isn’t expensive compared to some of Apple’s other fancy alternatives.


3. Apple Hermes Leather Single Tour bands

The Hermes lineup offers the most sophisticated look in Apple’s band portfolio. These are handmade in France using either barenia, epsom, or swift leather. You get some interesting color schemes to choose from, and since they come from Apple and are pretty fancy, you can also expect to pay a pretty penny for these. The Hermes Single Tour bands go for a whopping $339 and can reach up to nearly $600.


4. Casetify bands

Casetify Apple Watch bands

Casetify offers some of the best Apple Watch bands around, thanks to their fun designs and great quality. These are comfortable and water/sweat resistant. They are also made with vegan saffiano leather, making it a great alternative for those who like the comfort and aesthetics leather has to offer, but would rather not purchase the real deal.


5. Spigen Rugged Armor Pro

Spigen Rugged Armor Pro Apple Watch band

The Spigen Rugged Armor Pro is for those that want their Apple Watch to have both character and some real protection. This case and band combo protects the smartwatch with its shock-resistant material and raised bezels. It also gives off a very mean G-Shock-like appearance and costs only $19.99.


6. Marge Plus bands

Marge Plus Apple Watch bands

Marge Plus bands are a great alternative for real leather enthusiasts who don’t want to pay for an expensive band. At just $12.99, this is definitely one of the best Apple Watch bands to get on the cheap. It is made with genuine leather and comes in a flurry of color options.


7. Wearlizer bands

Wearlizer Apple Watch bands

Wearlizer Apple Watch bands come in a wide variety of color options, giving you freedom to customize the look of your smartwatch as you wish. They are also made of stainless steel, making them good contenders to efficiently withhold any abuse you may give them. Wearlizer bands cost $29.99, and offer a nicer, classic look than other much more expensive alternatives.


8. Nomad Steel Band

Nomad Steel band for Apple Watch

Nomad is known for its mobile accessories, and it definitely doesn’t disappoint with its Apple Watch bands. The Nomad Steel Band offers a classic look, size customization, and a sturdy stainless steel construction. They offer a titanium version that is nearly $200, but this one can be had for $119.95. Aesthetics are the same, but stainless steel is heavier and not as strong as titanium.


9. Apple Braided Solo Loop

Apple’s Solo Loop line is for those of you who know your perfect fit and don’t want to change it. You can’t adjust the Solo Loop, but it offers the perfect level of sleek, minimalist style. The band itself is a single layer of material, and we prefer the braided version to the silicone one for the fact that it’s softer to the touch. Better yet, the Solo Loop comes in a full complement of colors.


10. Pad & Quill Lowry Cuff Edition bands

Pad Quill Lowry Cuff Edition band for Apple Watch

Pad & Quill is synonymous with quality, uniqueness, and elegance. The Lowry Cuff Edition is easily one of the best Apple Watch bands around, offering a singular steampunk look that will turn heads. Its full-grain leather top makes the band resistant, while the soft leather lining keeps the accessory comfortable. It retails for $99.95, which isn’t cheap, but you can nab yours on sale from Pad & Quill right now.


That’s it for our list of the best Apple Watch bands you can currently buy. Now you are ready to rock that Apple Watch with pride!
