Apple Watch Nike+ is nigh-identical to the regular, aluminum Apple Watch, but its Sport Band is something else entirely. It's got an awesome, wacky, octopus-y perforated design, in black, silver, gray, and vivid green that's unlike any other band on the market. You can get an official Nike+ Sport band directly from Apple for $50, but you don't have to pay the Nike brand price to get the Nike brand look. Here are the best options if you're looking to get the Nike+ Sport Band look for less!
- Understated alternative: Kades Silicone Replacement Band
- Color bonanza: HeiKe Soft Silicone Sport Band
- Different take: Altritz Band for Apple Watch
- Cheap replacement: UMTELE Soft Silicone Sport Strap Replacement
- So close, so colorful: AdMaster Silicone Smart Band
- A vibrant option: SMEECO Silicone Watch Band
What this Kades band lacks in color options it makes up for in style. It looks almost exactly like the Nike+ equivalent, including some similar color choices. The bands come in a 2-pack, which gives you multiple color options in one purchase. Its available color combinations include black/volt, white/black, and black/red.
HeiKe offers a Nike+ Sport-like band at a very low price, available for both the 38mm/40mm and 42mm/44mm Apple Watches. There are also a lot more color options available than the official Nike-branded band, and each band is fastened with a stainless steel pin, just like the genuine article.
The Altritz Band for Apple Watch is made from high-quality silicone and is designed like the Nike+ Sport Band to have multiple air holes to allow for more comfort while you're running a marathon, lifting weights at the gym, or even going on an early morning jog. You can pick it up in a number of different colors including navy/black combos, pink/white combos, and so much more.
Soft, durable, and a spot-on dupe for the Nike+ Sport Band, the UMTELE Soft Silicone Sport Strap Replacement is a comfortable, lightweight, and inexpensive sport band option to keep in mind. There are also a variety of color combinations you can choose from to really make your Apple Watch your own.
Admaster has a band that doesn't quite look like the official version, but it's really close. And again, this band offers many more color options than the Nike band, such as red, midnight blue, and pink.
Each of these bands would be a great option for getting a Nike Sport band-like look without spending $50, but if I'm getting one of these, I'm going with the Kades Silicone Band. First of all, you get two bands, and while the color selection might not be as plentiful as some of the other options, I'm a fan, especially that Black/Red combination band.
