After 25 hours of research and testing, our take is that you can’t go wrong with a genuine Apple watch band if you’re willing to pay for one.
But if you want a different style than what Apple offers, or you want to save a lot of money, we’ve found a large handful of the best Apple Watch bands that aren’t made by Apple. This includes three cool leather bands at different prices, a couple of steel bracelets that we really like, and a classic nylon band. We also have suggestions for decent knockoffs if you want to come close to the style of Apple’s bands for lower prices, or if you want to convert your own standard watch bands to fit the Apple Watch.
