Customizing Your Apple Watch with an Apple Watch Band
That coarse, phone- zombie stance is rapidly becoming the picture that depicts this decade’s definition. Luckily, the goal of the Apple Watch is to enhance the way to use an iPhone through a watch, potentially changing how we interact with other people—and our phones (since we will be spending less time holding our cell phone in front of our faces). After all,” Looking at your own wrist is different to looking at a standalone black box, partly because looking at a watch has a history that predates the digital era” says Jess Cartner- Morley (Guardian’s fashion editor)
The rise of Apple Watch
It’s now almost a year since the Apple Watch had been launched by Apple Inc. and we have been seeing major improvements from software upgrades, latest Apple watch band options down to a price cut. Although still not considered as a must- have product, “Apple watch remains the best designed and most capable smartwatch you can buy” according to Scott Stein (Senior Editor / Reviews - Wearable Tech of CNET.com).
These watches have 3 variations: The mid-range stainless steel Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport, and Apple Watch Edition that will help you find the right iwatch that fits you and your personality.
In addition, Apple's Made for Apple Watch Program gave Apple approval to third- party accessory makers to sell iwatch bands! Now you can enjoy a wealth of other options and not get stuck with customary looking bands and customary boring colors.
Third party iwatch band makers such as BRG Tech, offers an Apple watch band 42mm with a refined strap for a lesser price.
List of Apple Watch Bands
It is important to keep in mind that some of these bands are limited to one case size and others only cover a limited range, but no worries because Apple has a comprehensive sizing guide. So before you pick an iwatch band, measure your wrist basing from the guide.

Without the aid of any tools, you can swap iWatch bands to other Apple Watches given that the watch and the band are of the same size. Although Apple’s proprietary system made switching bands easy, it also means that you probably won’t be able to switch with just any band for example: an Apple Watch 42mm only fits an Apple Watch band 42mm or the solid-gold hardware accents on the rose gray Modern Buckle band won’t match the anodized aluminum finish of the Apple Watch Sport, and even if it did the outcome might be different.
So there you have it, I really hope this article helped you.
