Pursuing a fitness resolution? Nab a sports band for your Apple Watch [Watch Store]

It’s January of a brand new year, and you find yourself with two things that go well together: a resolution for better fitness and a new Apple Watch. What you might be missing is a band that is made to stand up to the rigors of a tough workout.

There’s good news: The Cult of Mac Watch Store has you covered. Here are a few bands that might help you become more fit in 2019:

 

ActionSleeve Apple Watch Armband by Twelve South

The Apple Watch is an ideal workout partner, but it’s not a good idea to have things around your wrist during certain activities. An Apple Watch armband would be perfect.

ActionSleeve from Twelve South straps your Apple Watch to your upper arm or bicep, and surrounds the device in rubber to protect it. The display and Digital Crown remain exposed so you can still see and use your Apple Watch while working out, and the heart-rate monitor works just as you would expect it to.

ActionSleeve is available for both the 38 mm and 42 mm Apple Watch, and it comes in black or red. An additional slim size is available in black for 42 mm. Made of neoprene and silicone for comfort and durability.

Price: $29.99

Tire Tread Sport band by Carterjett

PINK Carterjett

If you want something a little more rugged strap on a Tire Tread Sport band from Carterjett. These sturdy silicone bands come in brilliant colors, with extra-large sizes and surprisingly small price tags.

The textured zigzag rising off the band’s exterior stands out, but the band is easy to clean, which is a plus after a hard workout.

One of the Carterjett Tire Tread strap’s big selling points is that it goes large. Like, really large. The L/XL size fits wrists up to 11 inches around.  In addition to blue, the Tire Tread bands come in red, orange, pink, tan, white and black, so you’ve got plenty to choose from.

Price: $24.99-$29.99

EdgeGear’s SHIFT band moves the face of a smartwatch to the spot on the hand just below where the thumb and forefinger meet (pictured). The result for runners, cyclists or anyone using the Apple Watch’s health tracking features is the face of the watch remains in the line of sight.

With today’s constant flood of notifications, metrics, and information, Shift re-imagines the watch. It streamlines your movement and optimizes interaction on the go.

The best part is EdgeGear engineers these performance bands for just $39.99.

It works as it's supposed to, charges quickly. Use it with my Iphone XS. Completely satisfied so far!

Good

Would be 5star if cable access was on side, so that the cable old be inserted while n case!

Good product, poor delivery and communication.

The product was ordered and paid for in full online. Fulfillment and shipping was delayed for several days. When I emailed a request for information about the delay, I was only told that the product was being shipped by their vendor and they had no info. It took several more days before the product finally arrived.
Not worth the wait and aggravation. Amazon beats you hands down. I will not order from you again.

Great case for new iphone

My wife loves the case. She color (red) helps her find her phone and the softness of the silicon improves her grip on the phone.

Missing order

I have not received my order from January 28th. When will I get this?

Hi Angela, my apologies for the delay. This should have been with you by now so I have emailed you to advise on the next steps. Thank you for your patience. Adel.
