Enter to win a high-end Qrono Apple Watch band from Juuk [Cult of Mac giveaway]

This week, Cult of Mac is giving away two fantastic metal Apple Watch bands from Juuk, a high-end watch strap company. We’re giving away two aluminum Qruno straps in cosmic grey.

If you are looking for a high-quality metal band to match the Apple Watch’s high-grade design, enter this giveaway. The Qrono band is a good-looking watch band made from 6000 series hard-anodized aluminum, the same alloy used in the aircraft, automotive and nautical industries. A high strength-to-weight ratio makes the metal extremely lightweight and durable.

“The Qrono is amazingly lightweight, incredibly comfortable, and it looks fantastic,” we said in our review. “The cosmic gray model I have goes great with a space gray Watch, and it’s the only band I’ve used so far that has had other people asking where I got it.”

The Qrono has the same quality, fit and style as some Swiss bands. But instead of a $1,400 retail markup, the Qrono costs only $139. It fits all 42/44mm Apple Watches and comes with a matte finish. The band’s stainless steel butterfly buckle makes it extremely easy to take on and off. And the included link-removal tool makes it simple to get the exact right fit for your wrist.

Juuk Apple Watch band giveaway

Based in Hong Kong, Juuk was started by Canadian Eugene Ho. He is a veteran of the watch industry, with more than 20 years experience in product development. He’s worked with many well-known fashion brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland and Hugo Boss, to name a few.

Ho set out to combine his knowledge of watches with his relationships with reputable factories to create high-quality Apple Watch bands at a lower price. He creates all of his original designs specifically for Apple Watch. Juuk (pronounced “juke”) is named after a jukebox. The idea is that your watch bands, like songs on a jukebox, change often. Juuk offers a great selection at lower prices so you can afford to own several to accessorize to match all your outfits.

Almost perfect

Application was simple but despite careful cleaning/prep, two faint bubbles occasionally appear, but since they're along edge, don't affect functionality. Otherwise, performs as advertised.

Quality paper textured screen protector 5/5

Using the Apple Pencil 2nd gen with this gives far more control and a more traditional writing feel. It definitely makes sketching and even taking notes anymore natural experience. However, finger sensitivity does go down a bit. You’ll have to be more intentional as light touches will no longer be recognized as easily. It also completely removes screen glare which is awesome, but it does make greasy smudges more difficult to clean off, and you can still see smudges in the textured surface.

But the negatives are only mildly annoying. The benefits far out way anything negative.

My Thoughts on SwitchEasy PaperLike iPad Screen Protector

Lengthy product title....Yes, I ordered this screen protector based on Cult of Mac's product description that it's like writing on paper. Bottom's a far better screen protector that aids "writing" with an Apple Pencil (I have the 1st gen version), greatly reduces finger prints (always good) when using the Apple Pencil, input is immediate and precise. I'm a lefty and this screen protector allows minimal effort when writing electronically. I'm not an artist so I cannot rate how this screen protector handles an artist's desires. I will say my primitive artwork (cups, objects, etc.) drawn with my iPencil are spot on and represent my vision for my coffee cups, primitive as they may be,.

Overall, I have no buyer's regrets for this purchase. However, some caveats...the application instructions are verrry sparse (A and B on two tabs, that's it). Once on, the tactile sensation is has a "pebbly" like feel when you run your finger over the screen protectors surface. It's a strange sensation that always surprises me, yet, its this "pebbly" surface that allows the user to work their magic, whether writing or drawing as well as keeping fingerprints to a minimum. For use on a iPad, it works wonderfully and will capture your vision. However, this screen protector will never feel the same as writing with a fountain pen on quality paper.

Again, no buyer's remorse...just my thoughts on a quality product that works well on an iPad.


Very nice metal strap

Looks good, quality feels good as well.

Cute, yet effective protection for my AirPods Pro

This AirPods Pro case fits pretty snugly, and seems to protect my AirPods pretty well. Wireless charging through the case works great -- and it is also easy to access the Lightning charging port on the bottom. The ring for attaching to a backpack or belt loop is fairly solid. And it looks like a tiny suitcase :) Overall, it works great for me!
