Best third-party Apple Watch bands that won't break the bank

There are a lot of very expensive Apple Watch bands out there, but if you want to be able to buy a few and switch it up every day — and do it without breaking the bank — then we have the best inexpensive bands for you!

Yearscase sport band

Yearscase's sport band is a dead ringer for Apple's Nike Sport band, and at $10, it's way less expensive. This durable silicone band is perfect for day-to-day and activewear and the nickel-free stainless steel closures are hypoallergenic.

Yearscase's bands come in black and white and are available in small/medium and medium/large sizes for both the 32mm and 42mm Apple Watches. Be sure to check out our roundup of cheaper alternatives to the Apple Sport band if you're looking for something other than what Yearscase has to offer!

Super Baoking Milanese Loop watch band

Super Baoking makes a great $12 alternative to Apple's Milanese Loop. Its band comes in champagne gold and the ever-popular rose gold, which all match the Apple Watch very closely.

The Milanese Loop is an elegant band that's perfect for office attire, but it's durable enough to wear every day, so long as you're not doing anything that may scratch it up too badly. That being said, if anything goes wrong, Super Baoking has a 12-month warranty on this particular watch band.

If you love the Milanese Loop style but don't want to shell out the $200 to Apple, then go with Super Baoking's $12 band or any of our other Milanese Loop favorites.

Vilo V-Moro Double Tour

The $17 V-Moro Double Tour band comes in seven colors and all Apple Watch sizes (38mm and 42mm), so there's one for every mood and personality. The genuine leather is extra comfortable, thanks to the microfiber interior, which snuggles against your wrist like a purring kitty on a winter day.

Different colors have different textures, so if you're not into the smooth leather look, you can pick up a navy blue band, which features a sort of cross hatch texture that's both rugged and refined (at the same time?! Yup!).

If you like to show off your watch bands and don't mind one that's a little more ostentatious than traditional bands, then go with the V-Moro Double Tour or any of our other favorite Double Tour bands and feel good about not paying $600 for them!

Note: Make sure you choose the right size for your Apple Watch before checking out!

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro

The Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro ($17) rubber strap is firm and durable, and the case covers your watch face and body, protecting it from scratches and bumps. If you're someone who's clumsy and known for breaking screens, then it's worth it to seriously consider the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro.

The case comes in black, blue, gold, red, sand, and white and is available for the 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 3.

iGK sport band

iGK's $9 silicone band looks a lot like Apple's Sport Band, but with a bit of a different shape and some gorgeous, sophisticated colors like wine red, pink sand, and more.

You can get the iGK band for both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches, and you can get a small/medium or medium/large for each.

Marge Plus genuine leather strap

If you like more of a rustic flair with your Apple Watch, then the $10 Marge Plus leather band is for you. It comes in classic brown or sleek black leather and comes in both 42mm and 38mm sizes to fit every Apple Watch.

Each band is made out of 100 percent real leather, and Marge Plus offers an 18-month warranty for any defects. This band features stainless steel connectors and buckle.

AdMaster sport band

If you like the look of Apple's Nike+ band but don't want to pay the ridiculous price, the $10 AdMaster's band is perfect. It features the ventilated design and should keep your wrist nice and cool and dry.

You can grab the AdMaster band for both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches. There are 13 color options to choose from, and you can even grab a 6-pack for only $33.
