Which extra large Apple Watch band should you choose?

Apple Watch bands for larger wrists are a little harder to come by than other sizes, but hopefully one of the options above should suit you.

Our personal favorite is the Speidel Twist-O-Flex Stainless Steel Stretch Band. It's pretty much everything we like about the link bracelet style without the fuss, and it can even extend an additional five inches beyond the original size to suit your needs.

If you prefer something with a bit more sparkle, I heartily recommend the elegant Wearlizer Rhinestone X-Link Apple Watch Band. It suits my classic, feminine style and has quickly become a favorite in my vast Apple Watch band collection.
