Go totally ballistic with these nylon Apple Watch bands [Watch Store]

Breathe new life into your Apple Watch with a cool, contemporary nylon band inspired by the original NATO watch strap. Best yet, this one won’t leave you cash-dry.

Spanish company Nyloon started with the goal of making high-quality versions of the NATO straps created by the British Ministry of Defence in 1973. The result is a line of fun, versatile and easily interchangeable nylon bands that are now flying off the shelves.

The original NATO strap needed to be as utilitarian as possible for soldiers. It was designed to be worn over or under clothing, such as a flight or wet suit, keeping the buckle away from the underside of the wrist to prevent it catching on clothing — or weapons. A durable, breathable material was a must.

Nyloon’s Nylon Apple Watch straps echo this early version in a fresh, modern way. Its bands are crafted from two pieces of thick and tough ballistic nylon built to battle the worst weather conditions. The bands are super-comfortable, lightweight and versatile, and add a bit of tacti-cool street cred to your wrist. Swap them out in a flash with Nyloon’s new spring-bar adapter.

The bands are lightweight, comfortable and breathable, and come with nine heat-sealed adjustment holes for both 38 mm and 42 mm Apple Watch sizes. All band feature complementary-colored stitching. Adapters come in either steel or black to match your watch.

Elevated quality and protection

What truly separates this simple and elegant design is that it provides added personal safety for bike riders while hiding their Apple tracking device from sight. Simple installation and great quality! Verified operational use and without a doubt a double winner! The case does not detract from the original Apple specifications! Highly recommend it!

Love this heavy duty band

Ordered this band to match my blue Series 6. The color is spot on, and the clasp is excellent. It looks really nice on my wrist!
