UAG, known more for its innovative and cool phone and tablet cases extends its line into watch bands, which they call straps.
UAG Active Watch Strap
If you are tired of leather and clasps, holes and buckles, consider the $59.95 UAG Active Watch Strap made of high strength nylon weave with custom stainless steel, hook and loop fastening. They seel the strap in midnight (camo) and black, but I like the bright orange version (because orange is the new black after all).
I use this strap when I’m working in the yard. It feels secure, doesn’t get affected by sweat like leather does, and I don’t need to worry about it snagging on something and falling off.
And of course, for those who swim with their watches, the Active Watch Strap makes for an ideal companion.
UAG Leather Watch Strap
If you want to upscale your watch wearing experience without giving up cool design, consider the $69.99 UAG Leather Watch Strap. This strap combines its customer stainless steel hardware with supple Italian leather. This strap does sport a buckle, but it also includes a special collar with a snap for strap security. This elegant band arrives in brown or black. The brown looks more sophisticated at a club or dinner party, and the brown leather gains a nice patina the more adventure it sees.
Be a bit patient with this band as the thin leather loops don’t always take the strap feed gracefully for those in a rush.
Both straps include a 1-year warranty and come in sizes to fit the 44/42mm and 40/38mm Apple Watches.
