Gorgeous Apple Watch band makes canvas look better than ever

No one considers canvas to be an obviously attractive material. Not unless you have an unhealthy relationship with tents. But pair it with leather and slap it on an Apple Watch and, boy, does it look good.

Case in point: Monowear’s terrific Urban Canvas band. It’s immensely durable, comfortable all day long, and surprisingly beautiful. And it costs just $38.

Monowear has already impressed us with its luscious leather cuff for Apple Watch, which I reviewed in August. So we’ve been patiently waiting to see what else was up its sleeve (literally).

The Urban Canvas, available today from the Cult of Mac Store, doesn’t disappoint. It’s more interesting than your average Apple Watch band, and just as brilliant as the best of them.

Urban Canvas out now for Apple Watch

The great thing about canvas is that it’s extremely robust. That’s why it is typically used to make things like backpacks, sails, and those tents you love so much — which all need to be super-strong.

When you use it to make an Apple Watch band like Monowear has, you end up with a strap that’s going to last a lifetime. You’ll never have to worry about this one falling apart on you.

Monowear combines that outer layer with a genuine leather lining, which ensures the Urban Canvas soft and comfortable. You can wear it all day long and forget it’s even there.

A low-profile plug buckle, similar to that on Apple’s Sport band, means the Urban Canvas stays secure. But that it’s also quick and easy to put on and take off.

The Urban Canvas is available for both 38/40mm and 42/44mm Apple Watch models. And it comes in either denim blue, vintage red, or plaid gray — all of which look terrific.

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!


Clever way to add air tag to bike
