Infantry heavy-duty nylon strap
If you have your eye on the new Sport Loop that was announced for the Apple Watch series 3 and want to get your hands on something similar ASAP, then check out the Infantry heavy-duty nylon strap.
This durable nylon strap is water resistant up to 100 meters and can easily be secured to fit almost any wrist size with it’s tough velcro design. If things go wrong with your Infantry heavy-duty nylon strap, there’s a 1 year warranty and 30-day exchange in case you change your mind.
While it’s not a complete dead ringer for the new Sport Loop, this nylon strap will only cost you around $ 10 and comes in both green and black color options.
Yearscase sport band
Yearscase’s sport band is a dead ringer for Apple’s Sport band, and at $ 11, it’s way less expensive. This durable silicone band is perfect for day-to-day and active wear and the nickel-free stainless steel closures are hypoallergenic.
Yearscase’s bands come in a wide variety of colors and is available in small/medium and medium/large sizes for both the 32mm and 42mm Apple Watches.
Be sure to check out our roundup of cheaper alternatives to Apple Sport band if you’re looking for something other than what yearscase has to offer!
Super Baoking Milanese loop watch band
Super Baoking makes a great alternative to Apple’s Milanese Loop, and its band comes in black, gold, champagne gold, silver, and the ever-popular rose gold, which all match the Apple Watch very closely.
The Milanese Loop is an elegant band that’s perfect for office attire, but it’s durable enough to wear every day, so long as you’re not doing anything that may scratch it up too badly. That being said, if anything goes wrong, Super Baoking has a 12-month warranty on this particular watch band.
If you love the Milanese Loop style but don’t want to shell out the $ 200 to Apple, then go with Super Baoking’s $ 17 band or any of our other Milanese Loop favorites.
COVERY Genuine Leather Apple Watch band
If you want to look like a fashion-forward badass or just want a leather band that’ll make everybody ask, “where’d you get that?” then you definitely want the COVERY Genuine Leather Apple Watch band, because it’s cool as hell!
Made of genuine leather and available in black, brown, red, or white — or cooler leather color combinations like black/gray, gold, and rose gold — this cuff has an awesome modern feel with a sense of rustic coolness, like scotch out of a nice glass, sipped through a crazy straw.
The COVERY Genuine Leather Apple Watch band really does go with anything but is definitely only for folks who like their watch bands to make a classy, leather-riffic statement.
If you want to complete your cool guy/Indiana Jones/ruggedly handsome/steampunk look with an innovatively designed band that’s super inexpensive at $ 14, then check out the COVERY Genuine Leather Apple Watch band. If you’re a cuff fanatic and feeling like flying off the cuff on a cuff-band-buying spree, we’ve got more cuffs for your perusal.
Vilo V-MORO Double Tour
The Double Tour style can be both elegant and rock star at the same time and getting it for less means that you’re a smart shopper as well.
The V-MORO Double Tour band comes in seven colors and all Apple Watch sizes (38mm and 42mm), so there’s one for every mood and personality. The genuine leather is extra comfortable, thanks to the microfiber interior, which snuggles against your wrist like a purring kitty on a winter day.
Different colors have different textures, so if you’re not into the smooth leather look, you can pick up a navy blue band, which features a sort of cross hatch texture that’s both rugged and refined (at the same time?! Yup!).
If you like to show off your watch bands and don’t mind one that’s a little more ostentatious than traditional bands, then go with the V-MORO Double Tour (around $ 20) or any of our other favourite Double Tour bands and feel good about not paying $ 600 for them!
Note: Make sure you choose the right size for your Apple Watch before checking out!
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
If you need a little more protection for your 42mm Apple Watch, then I highly recommend Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle Pro, which is a rugged band and case combo!
The rubber strap is firm and durable, and the case covers your watch face and body, protecting it from scratches and bumps. If you’re someone who’s clumsy and is known for breaking screens, then it’s worth it to seriously consider the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro.
The case comes in black, blue, gold, red, and white and starts around $ 16. This is available for the 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3.
