So you’ve bought yourself that shiny new Apple Watch. Now what more can you do to it for it to appeal more to you?
There are plenty of customizable options when it comes to the looks of your Apple Watch. I’m going to go over a few accessories that are available on the market for you to purchase to make your Apple Watch your Apple Watch.
On Apple’s website and in stores, they offer additional watch bands for you to purchase that each have a different style and look to them that can completely change the way your watch looks. The Apple Watch that I own, came with a black sport band, and while I love the way it looks, I want more options to choose from. If you want to purchase a different band from Apple that is not the Sport Band, you’ll have to spend at least $149 to get one. The prices vary based on which band you are looking at, but that’s where it is going to start you and they only get pricier from there.
Third party markets, are starting to sell different bands that are much more cost efficient and easier to own. I purchased a leather band from Amazon that had cost a fraction of the price that Apple’s bands are sold for. Granted the quality of the band you buy from Apple will be of higher quality, but when running on a budget and you want to have a different style for your watch without breaking the bank, it’s best to find a band that fits your expression at marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, or Best Buy.
Casetify — Create a custom watch band with your photos or buy from pre-made designs.
Monowear — Purchase a watch band of quality and looks for a fraction of the cost Apple sells theirs for.
When it came to charging my Apple Watch, I found that I didn’t like the fact that it was just sitting on a nightstand while it was charging; it didn’t look nice. The Apple Watch is such a sleek device that I wanted to keep the looks alive and intact even when I was not using it. I found that there are docks you can purchase that act as a holder for your watch when you charge it.
I purchased a Spigen S330 Stand. It is made out of aluminum and has a cutout for where the charger fits so when it’s time to charge your device, it just sits on the dock and still keeps its beauty.
There are options for you to put a case over your Apple Watch if you want some extra protection. The Apple Watch is a pretty durable device that can withstand some wear and tear, but it’s not indestructible. Accidently hitting your wrist on a wall or a table, etc., can damage your Apple Watch if you hit it the wrong way and/or with enough force. If you want to prevent something like that from happening, I would recommend getting a case for your watch.
It was difficult for me to make the decision as to whether or not I wanted to get a case for my Apple Watch, but I ended up purchasing one just to be on the safe side. Like I said before, I love the look of my Apple Watch, so I didn’t want to smother it with a case. I ended up ordering another product from Spigen that was a thin fit case for the Apple Watch. I chose to get a thin fit case because I wanted to try to keep the original look of the watch even with a case on it. I found myself using this case minimally. When I go to an event or anywhere where I feel like I am going to be doing a lot of activity and fear that I will damage my watch. I will put the case on for that extra protection against any run-ins with a wall or table, but most of the time it is not attached to my watch.
There are many kinds of different cases that are sold for the Apple Watch that allot for much more protection than the case I was just referring to, however they add much more bulk and weight to the watch that I don’t aesthetically like. But, if you’re interested in total protection, they’re out there for you to buy.
There are many customizable options for the Apple Watch to give it that extra flair of you. I would recommend perusing the Internet to find some accessories you would like to utilize with your Apple Watch, since there are so many to choose from.
