Apple Watch Series 4 deserves a serious leather strap

by Ami Icanberry September 27, 2018

If you’ve just dropped some serious coin on the beautiful, new Apple Watch Series 4, no ordinary band will seem to do. Consider Strapa — the Netherland’s-based company — that makes some of the best-made, gorgeous leather bands we’ve seen. Trust us, you’ll love these bands.

Cult of Mac Watch Store customers are likely aware of Strapa (fka Strapple) for its inclusion in our online shop. Our very own Lewis Wallace reviewed the brand’s Crocodilus band earlier this year, and I took the Primus for a spin in August. These straps are really well-made and luxurious — the perfect compliment to your Series 4. See our gallery below. 

Strapa Crocodilus Apple Watch Band

Carefully selected Italian calfskin leather with expertly embossed alligator pattern makes for a luxurious watch band for the Apple Watch. Each strap is lined by a smooth leather backing, a careful stitching pattern, and durable linen thread. A great way to get the look of alligator for way less!

Much attention was put into the buckle design to ensure that it is not sharp and doesn’t damage the leather of the band. Choose from either silver or black hardware in shiny or matte.

GPS workout maps prove far more accurate on Apple Watch Series 4

by Graham Bower October 01, 2018

Apple Watch is pretty awesome at doing a lot of things. But mapping workouts isn’t one of them. At least, not until now. Back in 2016, I was pretty disappointed with the maps I got from my Apple Watch Series 2 (the first model that came with built-in GPS). When I tested it at my […]
