Top 8 Bands Apple Watch

As we’ve learned through many different news outlets this week, the Apple Watch band industry is one lucrative market for Apple right now. Their official bands sell at between $49 and $449, and recently debuted in actual Apple stores around the country. While some companies like Casetify are looking to win over the market by offering people affordable options in an infinite number of different designs, the creative official bands produced by Apple remains the best selling among new Apple Watch owners right now. We here at Top 8 were curious to see what all the fuss is about, so recently took to Amazon in search of the best possible third party straps or bands for Apple Watch that money can buy. While we’ll admit to not having tried all of Apple’s official options just yet (mainly because we don’t have almost $500 to spend on a simple strap!) we did find some nice affordable options. Check out our list below, and feel free to suggest your Apple Watch band of choice in the comments section below!

8. Apple Official Watch Bands ($49-$449)

We here at Top 8 are humble folk, so the few Apple Watches that you might see in our offices are kitted out with the basic sport band in a range of different colors. Aside from this most popular option, Apple has quite a few other choices including the Classic Buckle, Leather Loop and of course the $449 Link Bracelet. Our favorite of these other options however has to be the Milanese Loop, which is a woven stainless steel mesh that evokes 19th century Italian fashion and is just fantastic to look at – though, I can’t imagine wearing it 24 hours a day. It is infinitely adjustable, meaning that it will fit just about any wrist, and the closure is magnetic so you don’t have to fumble about getting it on and off each time.  – Buy from Apple

7. Baseus Band ($8.08)

So, how about the third party Apple Watch bands out there? Or, the more affordable options. Baseus has a nice band that works for both 42mm and 38mm versions of the Apple Watch, and is made with genuine soft leather so is ideal for those who are into that sort of style. In fact, I’ve noticed that many of the more affordable bands for the Apple Watch are actually made from leather, so either this is a trend or they’re all being mass produced from the same design. Still, this strap from Baseus is a nice replacement for the classic or modern buckle band in terms of the official options offered by Apple, and will only set you back a fraction of the price. The band debuted on Amazon at around $20 but is already down to less than $10. – Buy from Amazon

6. Aerb Apple Watch Band ($25.99)

Aerb is another company that has produced a range of nice Apple Watch accessories, and their genuine leather band for the Apple Watch is touted as the first int the world that fits both 38mm and 42 mm versions. Despite being made of leather, the strap does come in a range of different colors and is one of the more comfortable and elegant bands that you can find on the market at present. It’s also one of the only bands we come across that features a genuine metal clasp to give your wrist that added feeling of security. – Buy from Amazon

5. T-Trees Stainless Steel Buckle ($44.00)

For those who like their watches to be heavy and with a strap crafted from strainless steel links, then this third party option from T-Trees might just be the Apple Watch strap for you. At $44.00 at the time of writing, this one is a lot more affordable than the official options that you can find both online and streetside in the Apple Store, but maitains the same high quality. Available in both 38mm and 42mm versions, the strap itself is incredible precise and made from 316L stainless steel so you know that it is durable as well as stylish! – Buy from Amazon

4. MyCell Milanese Loop ($74.49)

I suppose it was only a matter of time before a company came up with their own affordable version of Apple’s most iconic official band for the Apple Watch – the Milanese Loop. We mentioned this one above and it really does represent a genius design move from Apple, which is perhaps why the band business is one of their most lucrative revenue streams at the moment. Cue manufacturers MyCell and their own version of the Milanese Loop, which will set you back around $75 but that’s still half of what you might pay for the official option. Still. the price suggests that this is still a quality purchase and more than lives up to the name. The band is available for the 38mm version of the Apple Watch, and offers the perfect balance between style and wearability.- Buy from Amazon

3. Kollea Premium Band ($21.00)

The Kollea band for the Apple Watch is compatible with a few different versions of the Apple Watch including the Sport and Edition options, for both 38mm and 42mm size. The band is simple and of the same kind that we’ve seen from a few different producers on the list, with the same kind of premium leather cut, but does provide an elegant end product and something that offers great wearability with no small amount of style. If you’re the kind of person that is looking at the Classic Buckle version of the official Apple Watch bands, then this could be a nice and affordable replacement should you not want or perhaps don’t have the money to go the official route. – Buy from Amazon

2. Oittm Stainless Steel Band ($35.99)

Another style that we can see a lot of in terms of third party bands currently available for the Apple Watch is the stainless steel metal chain link kind of option. Oittm have come up with their own version which might not have the kind of impact as Apple’s official versions but is still a quality strap nonetheless and will set you back a cool $35,99 at the time of writing. The metallic connection clasp makes taking off and putting on the band a whole lot easier, and but also secures the band in place in the way that a regular clasp doesn’t quite manage. – Buy from Amazon

1. JETech Apple Watch Band ($24.99)

JETech seem to be in the business of making afforable and quality accessories for the Apple Watch, since their range includes stands, cases and also straps that won’t set you back too much but are of excellent quality. This particular onne is perfect for the 42mm version of the Apple Watch and is crafted from genuine leather, so is both comfortable as well as fashionable. I have seen this particular third party band written about online under the price orf $149.99, but it’s currently only $24.99 from Amazon as we’re writig this article. In terms of finding an Apple Watch band that is both relatively affordable and of excellent quality, I don’t think you can go far wrong with this option from JETech, though that all depends on whether you’re into leather or not!- Buy from Amazon
