Colorful quality: Clockwork Synergy Dapper Collection Leather Band

Staff Favorite

Clockwork Synergy makes incredible quality bands for the Apple Watch at reasonable prices. The adaptors are as smooth as butter, and the premium leather is top-notch. Choose from over two dozen different textures and colors from traditional to fun.

Leather and canvas: Pad & Quill Field Strap

Pad & Quill's Field Strap is definitely something you could imagine Indiana Jones sporting. The rustic blend of American full-grain leather and durable Cordura fabric is classy but rugged, made to last through all of your adventures.

Classic: Nomad Modern Leather Strap

A simple look, Nomad's Modern Leather Strap is similar to Apple's Classic Buckle look. It has a clean, no-stitch design that looks slim and beautiful. The Horween leather gets a nice patina wear after about three months of use. In addition to the Natural Brown shade shown here, it also comes in Black.

Durable: Elobeth leather buckle cuff

Inspired by the look of equestrian fixtures, the Elobeth leather band cuff has a beautifully unique style to pair with your Apple Watch. It is designed from high-quality, genuine leather, while the buckle is designed to be sturdy and secure.

Blingy: Wearlizer Thin Glitter Leather Apple Watch Band

When you need a little bling in your life, check out this stunner from Wearlizer. Tapered to a slim, feminine style and enhanced with a glittery look, your Apple Watch will undoubtedly stand out from the crowd. You can choose from nearly a dozen colors.

Stylish: V-MORO Double Tour

If you don't want to spend almost $1,000 on the Hermès Double Tour (but if you can, all the power to you!), go with V-MORO's version instead. It is incredibly stylish and looks great for everyday wear while still being just as lovely for a night out or a more formal occasion.

Reliable: Apple Leather Loop

Apple's unique Leather Loop design is handcrafted in Arzignano, Italy, and has a quilted leather look. It's got the top-quality Apple nod with hidden magnetic enclosures so you can easily get it on and off without needing any buckling.

Minimal: Apple Modern Buckle band

Another option in the premium bracket is Apple's Modern Buckle band. Sleek, eye-catching, and stylish, it's a minimalist dream. It's void of any extra flash, flair, or distracting patterns. It's constructed with top-grain Granada leather and also features a clip-style clasp.

High Fashion: Hermès Swift Leather Single Tour

The Hermès line of Apple Watch bands is exquisite. The designs and colors change seasonally, so if you see one you like, don't wait to buy it. You're spending a pretty penny, but you'll look like a million bucks.

Find the perfect leather band for your lifestyle

Whenever someone asks me which third-party bands to get for the Apple Watch, I always mention Clockwork Synergy. This company offers a vast selection of Apple Watch bands, all of which are excellent quality. And unlike most of the top quality Apple Watch bands, the prices are quite reasonable. 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 match your watch.

For a more delicate look, I love the Wearlizer Thin Glitter Leather Apple Watch Band. Wide Apple Watch bands can look overwhelming on a small wrist, but this band tapers to a narrow buckle. The glittery finish adds a fun, feminine appeal. There are lots of color options, and at that price point, you can pick up several.
