Apple Watch Nike is almost identical to the regular aluminum Apple Watch, but its Sport Band is something else entirely. It's got an awesome, wacky, octopus-ish perforated design, in black, silver, gray, and vivid green that's unlike any other band on the market. You can get an official Apple Watch 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: AdMaster Apple Watch Band

The AdMaster band may lack in color options, but it makes up for in style. It looks almost exactly like the Nike equivalent, including some similar color choices. It's also pretty dang inexpensive, so you can't get really go wrong buying one, two, or even three of these cute sport bands.

Our recommendations

Each of these bands would be a great option for getting that Apple Watch Nike Sport Band look without spending $50. Our favorite is the AdMaster Apple Watch Band. First of all, it comes at a great low price and while the color selection might not be as plentiful as some of the other options, I'm especially a fan of the Black/Red combination band.

If you love a good package deal, the Geoumy Bands come in a slick pack of four, with lots of interesting color combos to choose from. Why not have one for every outfit?
