How to score $4 Apple Watch bands that beat Apple’s $50 bands

Accessorizing your Apple Watch with a slew of bands can be an expensive undertaking. But if you know where to look, you can find some high-quality bands that seem just as good as Apple’s — but only cost a fraction of the price.

The CultCast host Erfon Elijah is out with a new video today that will show you how you can pimp out your Apple Watch with multiple colorful bands without breaking the bank. The trick is knowing where to look on eBay and Amazon.

Take a look at some of these gorgeous bands!

eBay tends to have the best deals on Apple Watch bands. You’ll want to select the “Buy It Now” tab under the listing options. Then organize the bands, from cheapest to most expensive. (We’ve seen some bands that only cost $1.)

Selecting “US Sellers Only” will help you get your bands more quickly, because the ones from Chinese merchants often take a while to ship.

Apple Watch bands on Amazon

Amazon sells some cheap bands, too, but the prices generally run a little bit higher. There’s also a lot more crap to wade through.

When shopping for Apple Watch bands on Amazon, pay attention to reviews. Even though most of the bands appear to be sourced from the same places, some are utter rubbish.

Get quality Apple Watch bands

If you’re looking for higher-quality bands, check out the wares at the Cult of Mac Watch Store. We’ve got a wide selection of bands made from materials other than cheap cloth and plastic. You’re guaranteed to find something you like — and they’re cheaper than Apple’s bands, too.

Nice band. Worked well. Need to be sure to watch the video on using the tool to adjust the band.

never receive my purchase

I contacted the store but they never replayed to me i don't recommend to buy here!

Sadie, the elder, says .....

Not only is this iWatch such a practical means of holding my watch while charging, it’s a hoot - looks like my original Mac. I love it.

The case doesn’t totally align but it does it’s job. The part that stinks is that it attracts lint and dust because it’s silicone.

Great tidy solution

You know what happens, all your devices need a charger. 2 iPhones, an Apple Watch, iPad and more. My old solution was fast charger with 4 USB outlets plugged in to an outlet in the kitchen. Worked, but not pretty.

Let me start by saying this charger looks great. I got rid of all the other cables and keep this out in the kitchen. Much tidier! Phones charge quickly. Apple watch does too but you to be careful that it goes on right. Also, I have a metal band on mine so I have to close it before I put it on the stand or else it would rest on the screen of the phone below it.
