Gorgeous leather Apple Watch strap will make you feel like a grownup again

Lust List: Nomad Apple Watch Strap

Let’s face it: The green plastic band I have for my Apple Watch Sport is useful and comfortable, but it’s not classy. I wear it to the gym with no reservations, but a night out on the town? Maybe if I were an adolescent.

When I strap Nomad’s new Italian leather replacement band to my wrist, however, I finally feel like a grownup. This is one beautiful Apple Watch strap.

I’ve been wearing this lovely, dark-tan leather strap for a week or two now, and I’ve gotten many more compliments on my wrist apparel than I ever did with the green band. The silver connectors (which also come in Space Gray if you went for that option) blend right in with my aluminum Watch body. The matching stitching makes my Apple Watch Sport look like an even fancier timepiece than it is.

The buckle matches the silver accents, and the wrist strap slides right through the silver buckle, which has a subtle, squared-off design that adds just a touch of awesome to the whole look. If you’re looking for something equal in quality to the Apple strap designs but prefer something just a little cooler, you’ll be super-happy with this Nomad leather strap.

Price: $149, $119 preorder (at Nomad)

Buy from: Amazon, Nomad
