Get the right band when you’re ready for action [Watch Store]

by Marty Cortinas March 04, 2019

While the Apple Watch is a great fitness tool, not every band is ready for the rough-and-tumble world of workouts. That black leather band that looks so smashing while you’re out on the town turns a bit sodden when you’re running the streets.

It’s key to get a band that will not only be comfortable, but able to survive whatever you put it through. That’s where the Cult of Mac Watch Store comes in. Check out our selection of Apple Watch sports bands, including the ones highlighted below.

Tire Tread Sport band by Carterjett

If you want something a little more rugged, strap on a Tire Tread Sport band from Carterjett. These sturdy silicone bands come in brilliant colors, with extra-large sizes and surprisingly small price tags.

The textured zigzag rising off the band’s exterior stands out, but the band is easy to clean, which is a plus after a hard workout.

One of the Carterjett Tire Tread strap’s big selling points is that it goes large. Like, really large. The L/XL size fits wrists up to 11 inches around. In addition to the pink shown above, the Tire Tread bands come in blue, red, orange, tan, white and black, so you’ve got plenty to choose from.

EdgeGear’s Shift band moves the face of a smartwatch to the spot on the hand just below where the thumb and forefinger meet (pictured). The result for runners, cyclists or anyone using the Apple Watch’s health tracking features is the face of the watch remains in the line of sight.

With today’s constant flood of notifications, metrics, and information, Shift re-imagines the watch. It streamlines your movement and optimizes interaction on the go.

The best part is EdgeGear engineers these performance bands for just $39.99.

The Apple Watch is an ideal workout partner, but it’s not a good idea to have things around your wrist during certain activities. An Apple Watch armband would be perfect.

ActionSleeve from Twelve South straps your Apple Watch to your upper arm or bicep, and surrounds the device in rubber to protect it. The display and Digital Crown remain exposed so you can still see and use your Apple Watch while working out, and the heart-rate monitor works just as you would expect it to.

ActionSleeve is available for both the 38 mm and 42 mm Apple Watch, and it comes in black or red. An additional slim size is available in black for 42 mm. Made of neoprene and silicone for comfort and durability.

Price: $29.99
