Protect Apple Watch with this brilliant band + bumper duo (and save 15%)

Apple Watch might be surprisingly tough for a tiny gadget, but it’s not completely indestructible. Don’t wear yours unprotected.

Pick up this excellent band + bumper duo from the Cult of Mac Store today for under $33.

The duo includes our incredibly popular Quattro Bumper case from Elkson, plus the terrific Hybrid Sports band — both of which we’ve gushed about before. They’re brilliantly made, but they won’t break the bank, especially if you buy them together.

A must-have for every Apple Watch

What’s great about the Hybrid Sports band is that it looks like a traditional leather band at first glance. But if you flip it over, you’ll find a silicone backing that makes it even more comfortable.

That backing improves durability and makes the Hybrid Sports, unlike other leather bands, ideal for working out and other high-intensity activities that cause you to get all sweaty.

When combined with the Quattro Bumper, your Apple Watch is protected against the scuffs and scratches it might usually pick up when you’re in the gym, or out in harsh environments.

The duo is essential for any 44mm Apple Watch owner who likes getting dirty in the great outdoors, or has to work outside of a warm and comfy office.

Save when you buy the bundle

The Hybrid Sports band is usually priced at $25 by itself, while the Quattro Bumper costs $11.99. So buying both products individually will set you back $36.99. But if you buy them together through the Cult of Mac Store, you’ll pay just $32.99.

Almost perfect

Application was simple but despite careful cleaning/prep, two faint bubbles occasionally appear, but since they're along edge, don't affect functionality. Otherwise, performs as advertised.

Quality paper textured screen protector 5/5

Using the Apple Pencil 2nd gen with this gives far more control and a more traditional writing feel. It definitely makes sketching and even taking notes anymore natural experience. However, finger sensitivity does go down a bit. You’ll have to be more intentional as light touches will no longer be recognized as easily. It also completely removes screen glare which is awesome, but it does make greasy smudges more difficult to clean off, and you can still see smudges in the textured surface.

But the negatives are only mildly annoying. The benefits far out way anything negative.

My Thoughts on SwitchEasy PaperLike iPad Screen Protector

Lengthy product title....Yes, I ordered this screen protector based on Cult of Mac's product description that it's like writing on paper. Bottom line...it's a far better screen protector that aids "writing" with an Apple Pencil (I have the 1st gen version), greatly reduces finger prints (always good) when using the Apple Pencil, input is immediate and precise. I'm a lefty and this screen protector allows minimal effort when writing electronically. I'm not an artist so I cannot rate how this screen protector handles an artist's desires. I will say my primitive artwork (cups, objects, etc.) drawn with my iPencil are spot on and represent my vision for my coffee cups, primitive as they may be,.

Overall, I have no buyer's regrets for this purchase. However, some caveats...the application instructions are verrry sparse (A and B on two tabs, that's it). Once on, the tactile sensation is different...it has a "pebbly" like feel when you run your finger over the screen protectors surface. It's a strange sensation that always surprises me, yet, its this "pebbly" surface that allows the user to work their magic, whether writing or drawing as well as keeping fingerprints to a minimum. For use on a iPad, it works wonderfully and will capture your vision. However, this screen protector will never feel the same as writing with a fountain pen on quality paper.

Again, no buyer's remorse...just my thoughts on a quality product that works well on an iPad.

Very nice metal strap

Looks good, quality feels good as well.

Cute, yet effective protection for my AirPods Pro

This AirPods Pro case fits pretty snugly, and seems to protect my AirPods pretty well. Wireless charging through the case works great -- and it is also easy to access the Lightning charging port on the bottom. The ring for attaching to a backpack or belt loop is fairly solid. And it looks like a tiny suitcase :) Overall, it works great for me!
