Spring is in the air, and Apple wants to put a new Apple Watch band on your wrist to celebrate. On Tuesday, the company announced Sport Bands, Woven Nylon bands, and Hermès leather bands in fun spring colors, as well as standalone Nike Sport bands that used to only come with the Nike+ edition of the Apple Watch Series 2.
They look great, but Apple’s bands don’t come cheap. We’ve previously tested a few bands from Amazon that ably knock off the look and materials of Apple’s official bands, for a fraction of the price. And since these refreshed Apple bands are new colors rather than all-new styles, knockoffs are already plentiful.
Here’s a rundown of all the new bands in the Apple Store, and a link to a similar band we bought on Amazon. Some are more faithful reproductions than others, but they all sell for a fraction of the price.
