Candy-colored Apple Watch band is limited edition [Review]

by Ami Icanberry July 26, 2017

Juuk’s steel bands for Apple Watch have always impressed us. The luxury band-maker has just released two new additions to its Ligero Apple Watch collection — the Rose Gold and limited-edition Rainbow bands.

These beautiful bands join a collection of 10 different finishes. Even better, Juuk is donating $20 of proceeds for each Rainbow Ligero purchased to Amnesty International Hong Kong to support their efforts to combat discrimination.

Check out the entire Ligero collection in our Watch Store, and read further to learn more.

Take pride in your Apple Watch band purchase

Like its predecessors, the Rainbow Ligero band is made of 6061 hard-anodized aluminum, for both the 38 mm and 42 mm Apple Watch. This special, limited-edition band is bright and beautiful featuring a kaleidoscope of colors from red to violet. Best yet, know that your purchase of one of these fun, colorful bands will go to a very worthy cause.

The Ligero is the third style of band created by Juuk, which includes the Revo and Locarno. Designed to be very lightweight yet strong, the Ligero features horizontal single-links with beveled edges on either side for a sleek appearance.

“We go to great lengths to make everything perfect,” said Eugene Ho, Juuk’s founder. “We feel that as a fashion accessory, it is better to just look right or it will look cheap.”

Engineered down to the last detail, the Ligero has customized concave capsa pins and a proprietary adjustment tool, which comes with every band. These will make size adjustments very easy right out of the box.

Also new to the Ligero lineup is the stunning Rose Gold band. This beautiful band has a matte finish, and really sets off any Apple Watch color.

In using aluminum, Juuk’s able to do what steel cannot; match the aluminum Apple Watch colors much more closely.

Check out the entire Ligero collection: Rainbow, Rose Gold, Cobalt, Veridian (green), Cadmium (orange), Tyrian (purple), Ruby, Obsidian, Cosmic Gray and Silver.

The Ligero is built from robust 6061 series aluminum — the same aluminum used in the aircraft, automotive, boating and diving industries.
