Monowear Design has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the launch of their Apple Watch Band business. They were looking to raise $15,000 and have already surpassed that. They will have a number of options with their most affordable one being the nylon band. The strap looks nice and it’s the cheapest one on the markets as of now.


Apple Watch Sport Band in White

Apple Watch Sport Band in White

$49 – Apple Sport Band

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Black, White, Pink, Blue, Green
Links: 38mm + 42mm

We actually feel the sport band at $49 is reasonable.  Apple makes nice products.  You can count on Apple’s Sport Band to be of higher quality than many of the knock offs that hit the market right after launch.

$49 – Casetify Custom Band

Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Black, White, Pink, Blue, Green

The Casetify website does not advertise a price as of today however the bands are rumored to be priced at $49.  Casetify has been around for a while, they allow customers to make custom phone cases using their own images.  They will make it easy for you to make your Apple Watch truly unique by printing you a custom made band based on an image you upload.


Monowear Leather Apple Watch Band

Monowear Leather Apple Watch Band

$60 – Monowear Leather Watch Band

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: Monowear Design
Colors: Black, Navy, Red, Tan, Beige
Links: 38mm + 42mm
We don’t have a ton of details on the quality and construction of this band but at $60.00 it’s the most affordable leather band on the market as of this writing.


Monowear Metal and Mesh Apple Watch Bands

Monowear Metal and Mesh Apple Watch Bands

$75 – Monowear Metal Watch Band

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: Monowear Design
Colors: Link, Mesh
Links: 38mm + 42mm
We are not certain what material these will made of nor are we sure what the quality will be like but $75.00 is a far cry from the $449.00 Apple is charging for their (far superior) link bracelet. If you want a metal strap you can’t beat the $75.00 price tag.


Apple Watch Classic Buckle Black

Apple Watch Classic Buckle Black

$149 – Apple Classic Buckle Band

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Black
Links: 38mm + 42mm

The Apple Classic Buckle is not cheap for a basic strap but it is made of high end leather.  The leather features a subtle texture and the clasp is stainless steel. I’d consider waiting to see what after market options are available as I would expect high-end leather straps to be available in the $60-$100 range.


Apple Watch Band Leather Loop Blue

Apple Watch Band Leather Loop Blue

$149 – Apple Leather Loop

Fits: 42mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Stone, Light Brown, Black, and Bright Blue
Links: 42mm

I actually love this band but do feel it is bit pricey.  The magnets are concealed with in the leather so has a simple look and is quite comfortable.  We like the ribbing and texture but some may find it’s a little to flashy.


Apple Watch Band Milanese Loop

Apple Watch Band Milanese Loop

$149 – Apple Milanese Loop

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Stainless Steel Mesh
Links: 38mm + 42mm

The Milanese Loop Band is made with woven stainless steel.  It’s fully magnetic making it completely adjustable (offered in just one size because the entire band is magnetic).  Its simplicity is beautiful and we love the functionality of the magnetic band. 4


Apple Watch Modern Buckle Black

Apple Watch Modern Buckle Black

$249 – The Modern Buckle

Fits: 38mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: Brown, Black, Soft Pink, Midnight Blue
Links: 38mm

Note: this strap is not compatible with the 42mm watch face.  We adore the way the clasp works.  The simplicity is another demonstration of Apple’s design team producing awesome products. It’s made of high-end leather and features an inner layer of Vectran for strength – and it will be strong Vectran is used by NASA for the landing bags on the Mars Rover.


Apple Watch Reserve Strap

Apple Watch Reserve Strap

$249 – The Reserve Strap

Fits: 38mm and 42mm
Manufacturer: reservestrap.com
Colors: Not Available, assumed to be white.
Links: reservestrap

The Reserve Strap will be the first strap on the market capable of extending the amount of time you can go between charges.  The strap has lithum polymer battery cells embedded into a silicon band.  The strap will give you 125% more use between charges (40.5 hours instead of 18 hours).  It’s basically
the the Apple Watch equivalent of Mophie. If you need the extra power this strap is might be perfect for you however it’s a basic look and big coin – if you don’t need the extra power or can wait for another straps with charging capability to hit the market we would recommend doing that.


Apple Watch Link Bracelet

Apple Watch Link Bracelet

$449 – The Link Bracelet

Fits: 38mm
Manufacturer: Apple
Colors: 316L Stainless Steel (Hand-Brushed)
Links: 38mm + 42mm
This thing is rich. At $449 it’s worth as much as the watch face. It seems excessive but it does take significant resources to produce: 9 hours of machine time to cut the pieces and once assembled it’s brushed by hand.  Further more it’s links are quick-remove meaning you can adjust the size without any tools.  It’s not  a simple mass produced band but from 20 feet away it may look like one. If you enjoy and can afford the fine things, grab one of these, if not wait for an aftermarket option.
