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
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. Softer nylon fabric will also prove to be much more comfortable and breathable. It’s not exactly cheap at $49, but 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’s Milanese Loop is certainly one of the classiest Apple Watch bands. 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 the 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.
4. Casetify 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
The Spigen Rugged Armor Pro is for those that want their Apple Watch to have both character and some real protection. This case/band 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 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 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 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. Oittm Watch Band
We know many of you like these metal straps, so we have decided to add an extra one to this list of the best Apple Watch bands. This one is unique in design and looks sleeker thanks to its flush links. These can be customized to fit your wrist appropriately. It is a beauty, and only costs $33.99.
10. Pad & Quill Lowry Cuff Edition bands
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 costs $99.95, which isn’t cheap, but we have seen less sophisticated bands go for more.
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!
