When it comes to an excellent Apple Watch band, Clockwork Synergy knows what's up. This company offers a vast selection of high-quality Apple Watch bands at a great value. You can't go wrong with the Clockwork Synergy Dapper Collection Leather Band. Not only can you choose from different leather colors, but you can also choose different textures, such as Aged, Bomber, Ostrich, Suede, and Washed. Additionally, you can choose different hardware colors to complete your look.

For a more eye-catching look, we love the Wearlizer Thin Glitter Leather Apple Watch Band. Wide Apple Watch bands can overwhelm smaller wrists, but this band tapers to a narrow buckle. The glittery finish adds a fun, sparkly, appeal. There are plenty of color options to choose from, and at this price point, you can pick up several. 

Leather ages with a warm patina over time, making it truly your own. Note that leather and moisture don't mix well. So for your gym visits and watery adventures, we recommend swapping out your leather band for a sport band.
