The arrival of summer can be a good reason to choose something new among the best bands for the Apple Watch . Apple’s smartwatch continues to be one of the best-selling watches in the world, pulling with it a huge parallel market of accessories including charging stands, tempered glasses and even cameras to put on the wrist . But where it has really made it, even compared to the traditional watchmaking market, is on the side of customizing the straps . Here, too, the Apple has played a key role by providing hundreds of models, colors and customizations over the years to ensure that everyone finds the strap that best suits their needs.
But in addition to Tim Cook’s company , there have been collaborations with some of the most important fashion brands that have been able to enhance the smartwatch with straps of absolute value, so how to choose? It depends on the use for which we are buying it: better a more comfortable and silicone variant if we have to go for a run, or a leather model if we have a more elegant dinner. For this reason we have decided to select the 5 best Apple Watch bands to buy in 2021 , respecting all the dimensions of the smartwatch.
You can find 4 different case sizes on the market – 38, 40, 42 and 44 mm – because the first models were available in 38 and 42 mm versions, while from Apple Watch Series 4 we have passed to a subdivision between 40 and 44 mm . So, the first thing to know, before buying the model, is that you have to refer to the right case size , even assuming that the smaller variants (38 and 40 mm) and the larger ones (42 and 44 mm) they are compatible with each other.
