LifeProof Eco-Friendly Band

If sustainability is what you’re after, then LifeProof has got you covered. LifeProof Band is made from recycled ocean plastic.

What’s more, it’s resistant to wear and fading, so it holds up to everyday wear without stretching or softening.

It goes way beyond eco-friendly too – these bands even give back by donating $1 to one of their nonprofit partners for every band that’s sold. This band connects seamlessly with your Apple Watch and is compatible with all versions and sizes. The straps come in different colors, too!

Nike+ Sport Band

Our Favorite Apple Watch Straps Of 2022

The Nike+ Sport Band is made from fluoroelastomer, the same material used in the original Apple Watch Sport Band. It’s water-resistant and sweat-resistant to keep your workout music dry while you sweat like a maniac on the treadmill.

This band is perfect for an active person who wants their watch to match their look while they’re working out at the gym or going for a jog outside.

The Nike+ Sport Band is available in a variety of colors, including White/Black, Black/Volt, Black/White, Anthracite/Cool Gray, Running Yellow/Sunset Glow, and Night Purple/Cerulean. It also comes in more traditional color schemes such as Pure Platinum/White and Charcoal Gray. If you’re looking for something a little brighter and with more pop then check out the Orange or Pink versions.

Casetify Printed Apple Watch Band

Hermès Fauve Barenia Leather Single Tour Band

Our Favorite Apple Watch Straps Of 2022

The Hermès Fauve Barenia Leather Single Tour Band is a sleek, stunning piece of the watchband. Made from the same leather as Hermès’ luxury saddles, it’s perfect for any occasion.

The classic design will ensure that your Apple Watch never goes out of style. Choose between a Double Tour and Single Tour band; they’re both made from the same Fauve Barenia leather and have contrasting black leather lining. It comes in 40mm and 44mm size options, fitting all kinds of wrists beautifully — plus it’s available with silver or space black hardware to match your Apple Watch (Series 6) perfectly with either model.

This is definitely one of the best Apple Watch bands you can get, but it’s also one of the priciest too. You’re getting what you pay for here: an absolutely beautiful, timeless piece that looks excellent on just about any wrist size.

It’s not just about how good this looks though: if money isn’t an object then you should be more concerned with whether a band feels right against your skin day-to-day—​and this one certainly does!
