The reality is, Apple’s pricing strategy for its Watch Bands is pretty ludicrous. We can’t recommend paying that kind of money when there are cost-effective alternatives for nearly every style available at Amazon. After all, you came to 9to5Toys for a deal, right?

We’ve already broken down the benefits of third-party Sport and Milanese bands in our previous review. Today, I’m taking a look at a Leather Loop option from OULUOQI that clocks in at just $24

Today only, as part of its Gold Box Deals of the Day, Amazon is offering up to 70% off luggagemessenger bags and more. Everything in the sale ships free for Prime members or in orders over $49. One standout from the bunch is the Fossil Men’s Estate Saffiano Leather East-West Messenger Bag for $139.99 shipped. That’s more than 50% below the original $300 price tag, the lowest Amazon has offered it for and the best price we can find.

Best Buy is currently running a special promotion on clearance cell phone accessories: Buy 2 (or more) and save 50% on each item. The extra discount is automatically taken during checkout as long as your order qualifies for the promo. Many different accessories are eligible including selfie sticks and screen protectors, but the best deal we’ve found is for Apple official iPhone cases.

Apple iPhone 6/Plus silicone and leather cases in multiple colors are already slightly discounted, but drop even further thanks to this promotion. For example, your total cost for 2 iPhone 6 silicone cases is just $30.99 shipped for both. The only thing to keep in mind here is that these are the previous generation cases. Apple released updated cases alongside iPhone 6s, but these older models should fit the new iPhones just fine.

It seems like everyone has a wearable these days. Apple Watch is a favorite amongst fanboys and Fitbit appears set for a huge holiday season, with Black Friday deals throughout many of our ad leaks. But what about those that would prefer a more classic look as opposed to the techie flavorings that are so popular right now?

What Watch out of Switzerland has an answer to that question. Its Bluetooth-connected watches are coming to the United States and are worth a look. With classic and modern stylings, plus iPhone/Android connectivity, these new timepieces are set to make a splash.

By now you’re probably tired of looking at the same old band on your Apple Watch. You could easily switch up its style with one of Apple’s different bands. But their sky-high prices make it nearly impossible for most people to afford different styles.

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.

Other reasonably priced and highly rated Apple Watch bands on Amazon:

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
