Apple Watch is the best smartwatch option out there.
The watch fits every style. It’s designed to sit comfortably on your wrist all day and night. You can track daily activities, heart rate, blood pressure, fitness goals, and yes, the time of day. It’s a watch, after all. However, wearing an Apple Watch around the clock (no pun intended) is not easy when you have the wrong band, and sometimes it can even become a health concern.
Luckily, Apple watch bands have a standardized (modular) case fit. Changing the band is a 30-second job with Longvadon’s guide. However, the problem is not changing the strap or even finding your wrist size. Most people burn the midnight oil searching for the most comfortable Apple Watch band so they can forget they even have anything on them.
Some users settle with knock-offs and cheap brands
While cheap Apple Watch bands can appear stylish at first, they’re not made with the health of the user in mind.
People break out with a skin rash after prolonged use. The sweat and toxins get trapped between the skin and the band, creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
Comfort and security also rank low among cheap knock-offs. These bands are usually not just a potential health hazard but can also scrape your skin, leaving shallow injuries. The fastening system is rarely ever done well.
Most Apple Watch enthusiasts don’t want to risk losing smart gadgets over an uncomfortable watch band. It’s a lose-lose situation.
The majority of bands on the markets are either made from cheap materials or pricey enough to pair with mortgage payments. But here’s the silver lining.
Longvadon is on a life-long mission to solve these problems.
The most comfortable apple watch band in 2021
Apple Watch bands are made of diverse materials and come in a variety of shapes. If you’re a proud Apple Watch owner, then you’ve probably considered some of the following options. Your timepiece and your skin deserve the best.
Let’s cover the materials and watch bands on the market right now.
1. Metal Apple Watch bands
Metal watch bands look stylish but are not suitable for leisure and most situations outside the business world. Metal is not the best material to sport during high sun as it can become a heat conductor, not leaving much space for skin to breathe. Metal bands have their time and place, and they can’t compete with other Apple Watch bands when it comes to comfort.
2. Plastic Apple Watch bands
Plastic bands are usually the staple of cheap knock-offs that may look good on photos but are actually terrible (even dangerous) in real life. The wrong kind of plastic can provoke an allergic reaction and leave you with a skin rash. Cheap plastics tear down after a few days of active use, losing all of their shine.
3. Rubber Apple Watch bands
Rubber and silicone bands are the everyday business when it comes to comfortable Apple Watch bands. Everyone has a rubber band. While it’s comfortable and ready for all kinds of physical activity, it still traps moisture and breeds all kinds of potential health hazards. Some manufacturers are adding holes to avoid these issues, and it’s usually done at the compromise of style and fashion. Some may call it hideous, but choosing a watch band is a matter of personal choice.
4. Leather Apple Watch bands
Last but not least, leather Apple Watch bands. Leather has a reputation as being a tricky option for Apple Watch enthusiasts. Most users had a bad experience ordering a fake leather band in the past. These bands can feel plasticky, hard, and rigid — seemingly inflexible and shiny.
Stitching flaws and uneven linings are also red flags of low-quality and plastic materials.
Longvadon’s leather Apple Watch bands are made from genuine full-grain bovine. Full-grain means the leather is taken from the hide just below the hair, and it’s the highest quality leather money can buy. It develops a patina over time, creating a sheen layer that brings out character and personality.
Take a look at Men’s Midnight Black Apple Watch Band. It’s crafted from the highest quality embossed bovine hide, fitting any Apple Watch Series to date.
Choosing the most comfortable Apple Watch band in 2021
