Bottom line: This stainless steel band full of crystal rhinestones dresses up your Apple Watch beautifully.

- Removing links kind of a pain
Embedded with hundreds of crystal rhinestones, the band adds a fun and festive touch to the rather serious-looking Apple Watch. I love wearing this band both to work and for a night out on the town. The stainless steel links give the band formality while the rhinestones give it personality.
Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band: Features
I'm always looking for alternatives to Apple's Link Bracelet, which is a stunning band that is unfortunately out of my price range. The Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band is definitely not a copy of that band, but it does share some qualities with it. Both bands are constructed from stainless steel and have some gravitas; they're. heavier than the average band but definitely not heavy enough to be annoying. Both have removable links so you can adjust for size and a butterfly clasp. Both are great-looking bands that look right in even the most formal and dressy situations.
That's where the similarity ends. The Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band is a fraction of the price of Apple's band. The Wearlizer band adjusts for size. It can fit wrists up to 8.26 inches (about 210 millimeters) around. I took out six links and it looks like I could take out four more, and my wrist is definitely on the smaller side at 5.75 inches (about 145 millimeters).
The entire surface of the watch band is embedded with crystal rhinestones. But the link bracelet form factor keeps the band from veering into silly. I wear this band for my teaching job and would absolutely wear it to a formal office setting as well. I've also worn this for evenings out on the town, and I may even wear it to my daughter's wedding.
The tool you need to adjust the band comes with it. Using the took, you push out the pins that connect each link to the band until you've removed the desired number of links. You place the pin back into the band by hand when you put the band back together; getting the pin all the way back into the band isn't easy.
Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band comes in five different colors to match your Apple Watch: Black, Gold, Silver, Champagne Gold, and Rose Gold. Of course, you can also pick a band that contrasts with the watch for different looks.
Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band: What I like
This is a just-right band for me. The stainless steel link bracelet style is quite formal and serious, but the crystal rhinestones add a fun and feminine touch without being silly. I frequently wear it to my teaching jobs. It happens to be a beautiful match for my mother-of-the-bride dress; I am planning to wear it to my daughter's upcoming wedding.
Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band: What I don't like
While the tool you need is provided, removing links for size adjustment is kind of a pain. Be sure to read the instructions thoroughly before starting so you don't break anything. The removal took works fine, but putting the pin all the way back into the band wasn't easy. I couldn't do it with just my finger, I used the hard plastic back of the tool to press it down more. The pins I put in there still stick out just the tiniest bit, not enough to see them but I can feel them if I run my finger across the edge of the band.
Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band: Bottom line
Overall, this is a great band I'd recommend to anyone looking for something fun to add to their Apple Watch band wardrobe. The stainless steel link bracelet has some heft and some seriousness to it, making Wearlizer Crystal Rhinestone Apple Watch Band suitable for the office or any formal situation. The hundreds of crystal rhinestones embedded into it give it just a bit of sparkle, making it more feminine and fun. I wear this band to work and to even the most formal of occasions.
This has quickly become one of my favorite bands. I wear it to work and dressed up for a night out on the town.
