5 Stylish Apple Watch Bands for Women

This time I will present 5 Stylish Apple Watch Bands For Women. The straps I want to show you are both stylish, high quality and not least reasonable in price.

The Watch

When I bought my Apple Watch Series 1 from Apple’s website in 2015, it was partly because I missed wearing a wristwatch again after a long break, partly because I’ve always had a penchant for Apple’s products.

Besides, I was very curious to find out what their latest idea was really about.

In the beginning, of course, it was the functional side of the watch that first of all had my focus.

What could it do? Was it just another Apple device with a strap? How did it really look?

A picture might say more than a thousand words, but nothing can be compared to sitting with the real deal in the hands.

And as we all know a wristwatch is far from just a timer, it’s also very much a personal fashion statement.

These questions and more was on my mind while the Apple Watch was still unexplored territory.

The Strap

And then there was the watch strap.

As I said, I myself was most concerned with the functionality of the watch at first and therefore I bought the watch with standard sport band.

The standard Apple Watch band is actually of good quality and suitable for both sports and everyday use. In addition, it is unisex, so it can be worn by both men and women.

But I have to admit that I was slightly excited when I realized how easily the strap could be replaced, something that is done quickly without tools.

I remember thinking, “Only Apple can do that!”.

Probably my reaction was a bit exaggerated in a moment of excitement, but Apple has always been good at surprising with special features, typically around usability, when launching a new product.

The ease with which the watch strap could be replaced on Apple Watch was one of them for me.

How to Change the Apple Watch Band

  1. Press in one of the band release buttons and slide out the Apple Watch band piece.
  2. Press in the other band release button and slide out the other Apple Watch band piece.
  3. Slide in the pieces of your new Apple Watch band (you can complete the final step without pressing the release buttons).

Apple and Hèrmes

Apple has traditionally always offered accessories for their products and the hallmarks of these have almost always been that they were quite expensive.

A good example of this is the internal RAM of the iMac.

Now that the Apple Watch strap is so easy to replace, it is clear that Apple also offers alternative straps.

Apple has in this context initiated collaboration with both Nike and Hermès and offers a wide range of watch straps in many different colors and materials:

COLLECTIONMATERIALMIN. PRICEMAX. PRICE

Nike Sport BandLightweight Fluoroelastomer$49$49
Sport LoopNylon$49$49
Nike Sport LoopFlexible Nylon$49$49
LeatherLeather$149$149
Hermès LeatherCalfskin Leather$339$539
Stainless SteelStainless Steel$49$449

As can be seen from the table above, the collection “Hermès Leather” is particularly prominent.

There’s no doubt that Hermès stands for quality of the highest caliber and they make some very beautiful products, but when the watch strap costs as much, or more, than the watch itself, then I get skeptical.

In this context we are talking a price range of $339-$539 meaning that some Hermès watch bands cost more than the most expensive Apple Watch Series 4.

Hermès is making some very cool watch straps, but do they really need to be so expensive?

According to Hèrmes, yes.

Therefore, I decided to explore the market for leather watch straps for Apple Watch, to see if there was a manufacturer that could compete on the price while being able to match in both style and quality.

And I’m happy to say that fortunately there are really good alternatives to Hermès out there that can both withstand the comparison of style and quality, but also maintain a much lower price level.

Several users who both own and have tried original Hermès watch straps and the cheaper alternatives claim it’s hard to spot any significant difference.

The Hermès logo on the clasp is not included, but if you can live without, there’s a lot of money to save.

Here’s your chance to spruce up your Apple Watch at a reasonable cost so without further ado, let’s get to the list.
