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

Love the band

Sent the wrong one, twice

Never even got the right case for my phone. I got sent the same case twice, not even the case for my phone.

Good morning Rebbecca, I apologize for this. I have checked my system and cannot see any correspondence with you regarding this. Please email me adel@cultofmac.com with the case you actually received, so I can get this sorted for you? Many thanks, Adel.

Great band

My hubby loves the feel and color of the bands

Not impressed

No real easy way to attach cables to it. Also, can't easily use Qi charging for iPhone... The bamboo wood part of it is nice though, even if not very useful. I bought this as an experiment to see how it would work out. Having to actually plug the iPhone cable in to the phone is not what I would call convenient. This will probably end up as a paper weight.
