Third party bands have been popping up and some are suprisingly good. This black 38mm Stainless Steel band is one of the most popular on Amazon and is currently down to its lowest price ever, just $36.99 shipped. It’s also available in multiple colors and the larger 42mm size, but prices vary. 72 Amazon reviewers rate it 4.2 out of 5 stars.

Well known and well reviewed watch accessory maker Clockwork Synergy has a couple dozen Apple Watch band options made from leather or nylon with prices starting at $25.95. Even cooler, they sell Apple Watch adapters in multiple color finishes for $14.95-$16.95. You can use these to put any watch band on your Apple Watch. For a limited time you can save 15% on all of these accessories with coupon code mac15 at checkout. All orders qualify for free shipping.
Whichever band you end up with, make sure you have a nice dock for your Apple Watch. I’m partial to Nomad’s aluminum offering (currently 15% off), but there are tons of other styles available. expand full story
