Hands on with Nyloon’s Moai band for Apple Watch Series 4

Nyloon makes one of the best nylon NATO Apple Watch bands out there, and now offers a brand-new unboxing experience. Your shiny new Series 4 deserves a band made with really high-grade materials and hardware — Nyloon is that band.

First impressions are so crucial, especially when cold hard cash is involved. That’s why I love that Nyloon has such sleek and streamlined packaging, a nod to the high-quality Apple Watch band nestled inside. Cult of Mac takes a look inside the box for the Moai — Nyloon’s best-selling band. Let’s check it out.

Best List: Nyloon Moai Nylon Apple Watch Band

A first look at the simple, black packaging, I can tell Nyloon knows what they’re doing. The company’s logo is clearly present as is a few of its band designs and some quick installation tips. The slim box has an outer cover that allows for easy removal, and the box design itself doesn’t distract from Nyloon’s distinctive trademark. Simply slide the cover off to reveal the vibrant band displayed inside. The band itself rests snuggly amidst a soft, cushioned material.

Inside, the ballistic-grade nylon material of the Moai band feels textured and lightweight yet impressively durable — not far from its original predecessor, the NATO straps, created by the British Ministry of Defense in 1973 which were built to withstand combat! Nyloon’s cool, contemporary nylon watch bands echo those early versions while breathing new life into Apple Watch. These lightweight, comfortable and breathable straps are built to withstand adverse weather conditions without compromising one’s personal style.

Although it’s wearability and rich colors initially drew me in, my favorite thing about the Moai band is the hand-stitched, tribal pattern. I really feel like I’m wearing a special piece made just for me. Not to mention the intricate stitching compliments its sleek steel adapters and buckle.

There’s some subtle heft to the band as a result of its quality materials and construction. 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.

Two best friends raised in military town, Fayetteville, NC., acquired Nyloon from a Spanish company two years ago. NATO bands resonated with the friends who found the tenacity of nylon to be the perfect material to work with for two creative military brats.

Nyloon recently released XL sizing for five of its most popular bands, and the Moai — being number one — is included in this lineup. All Nyloon bands feature complementary-colored stitching. Its great, high-quality adapters come in either Steel or Black.

These bands are available for Apple Watch Series 1-4!

Rilee & Lo Apple Watch Band, Black

I love this watch band, it's super comfortable and it fits perfectly.

Very Good Quality Leather Watch Band

The Monowear Classic is a very good quality watch band that gives your Apple Watch a great look for more formal or dress up occasions. My preference is to have a leather band without colored stitching and with a black stainless steel clasp. This band fits that criteria and provides a secure, classic method of attaching to my wrist.

I wish I could say something about this item but I have not received it. Pity about the money I spent!

Good morning, Thank you for your review. I have checked the process of your order, and the last update from USPS on September 18, states your package is delayed but still on its way, if this doesn’t change by next week please get back in touch by emailing me at adel@cultofmac.com
Many thanks, Adel.

Good second remote

Apple TV will only connect to one Apple remote, I found out after paying $60 for a second one. This remote worked out of the box and I have had no trouble. It allows my wife to have a remote as well.

Good product, but doesn't work as smoothly with every streaming app on Apple TV

It works fine, no problem connecting it to my Apple TV, so there is nothing wrong with the product. I just find myself and my partner still mostly using the apple remote. Maybe just out of habit. it is easier to rewind or fast forward with it on most apps, not on YouTube, but Netflix or appleTV+
