Sometimes having more options makes it more difficult to choose the right product for you. In the case of the Apple Watch bands, you have thousands of choices, if not more, at various prices, designs, styles, materials, colors, and so on.

By narrowing it down to our favorites, we’re trying to make your choice easier. In our particular case, when we’re burning calories, we prefer the look of the YC YANCH Watch Band. Couple it with a watch face that’s matching the band color, and you’re killing it with style at the gym, on the court, or the track.

When we go classic we prefer the looks of the JETECH Replacement Band, because it brings everything a classic metal watch band is about. With a classic metal clasp and individual links, you can never go wrong if you’re aiming for that “classic” look. As they say: “you can’t beat a classic!”.

In case you’re dressing up for a special occasion or a business meeting. In that case, we prefer the KYISGOS Watch Band, because it’s simply elegant, and it’s affordable to get a pair or a trio to match your belt, shoes, other accessories, or general attire. Watch out though: the stainless steel adapters that connect to the watch come in different colors. Make sure to match your watch color for a seamless look!
