Wearable tech just got way more fashionable with Bezels & Bytes — a San Francisco-based company dedicated to empowering women who love technology with new and fashionable ways to wear it.

The company designs high-quality, well-made leather Apple Watch bands accented with shiny, stainless-steel zippers, and studs, and chains … oh my.

Bezels & Bytes was launched in 2015 by Melissa Koerner and Sarah Shapiro — two retail entrepreneurs who love and embrace fashion and tech. The company debuted with a collection of jewelry for the Fitbit, receiving accolades from customers and style editors, alike, and winning the Women’s Health 2016 Fitness Award for “making wearable tech more wearable.”

Chainlink and Leather Apple Watch Band

The Chainlink and Leather Band comes in black or tan leather with rose gold, gold or silver chainlink.

High-quality genuine leather twists its way through a shiny, stainless steel chain in the Chainlink and Leather Apple Watch Band by Bezels & Bytes. This stunning band will certainly embellish any look. Add a bangle or two for added polish.

This beautiful piece of jewelry includes extra links that are simple to remove to fit any wrist size 5.2” or greater. Extremely comfortable and nickel-free stainless steel for people like myself with metal allergies.

Choose from black or tan leather with silver, rose gold or gold chainlink to best accent your Apple Watch.

Studded Leather Apple Watch Band

Both studs and buckles are nickel-free for those with sensitive skin. This studded band comes in regular and extended wrist sizes, fitting 5.5’-6.5’ and 6.5’-7.5’ sized wrists, respectively.

Choose black or blush pink leather.

Rilee & Lo Apple Watch Band, Black

I love this watch band, it's super comfortable and it fits perfectly.

Very Good Quality Leather Watch Band

The Monowear Classic is a very good quality watch band that gives your Apple Watch a great look for more formal or dress up occasions. My preference is to have a leather band without colored stitching and with a black stainless steel clasp. This band fits that criteria and provides a secure, classic method of attaching to my wrist.

Function101 Button Remote For Apple TV

I wish I could say something about this item but I have not received it. Pity about the money I spent!

Good morning, Thank you for your review. I have checked the process of your order, and the last update from USPS on September 18, states your package is delayed but still on its way, if this doesn’t change by next week please get back in touch by emailing me at adel@cultofmac.com
Many thanks, Adel.

Good second remote

Apple TV will only connect to one Apple remote, I found out after paying $60 for a second one. This remote worked out of the box and I have had no trouble. It allows my wife to have a remote as well.

Good product, but doesn't work as smoothly with every streaming app on Apple TV

It works fine, no problem connecting it to my Apple TV, so there is nothing wrong with the product. I just find myself and my partner still mostly using the apple remote. Maybe just out of habit. it is easier to rewind or fast forward with it on most apps, not on YouTube, but Netflix or appleTV+
