These magnificant Apple Watch bands are made from pineapple leaves

Get fruity with one of Mezando’s magnificant Apple Watch bands. Made from pineapple leaves, they’re super-sustainable and available in a range of styles and color options.

They offer all the charm and durability of a leather strap, but without the obvious drawbacks.

Who knew pineapple leaves could be so pretty? Mezando did, so it used them to create a range of ethical Apple Watch bands ideal for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else who wants an attractive strap.

Just like leather bands, Mezando’s are robust, weather-resistant, and supremely comfortable so you can wear them all day long. They also come in a range of finishes for every occassion.

The big difference is no animals were harmed in their making.

Mezando uses the miracle of Piñatex

Obviously Mezando didn’t just grab some pineapple leaves, paint them different colors, and add Apple Watch adapters. That would be crazy. Instead, the company uses something called Piñatex.

Piñatex is a material made from cellulose fibers extracted from pineapple leaves. It not only makes great bands, but it’s also great for the planet in a number of important ways.

First, it means fewer pineapple leaves — which are rarely put to good use — are burned. Even the left over biomass that isn’t used in Piñatex gets turned into fertilizer of biofuel, so it’s not put to waste.

In addition, Piñatex manufacturing requires no toxic chemicals, and it offers farming communities an additional source of revenue that simply wasn’t there before.

Pineapple leaves make for great Apple Watch bands

Pineapple bands are great for you, too. They’re supple and lightweight, so they feel great on your wrist, and they’re just as versatile as leather and other common materials.

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'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 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!


Unfortunately, the leather is beginning crack and the color is coming off with the cracking.
I have only had this watch band a short time, so I feel this should not be happening.

Good morning, Thank you for your feedback, and I apologize that you are not satisfied with your item, but it sounds like the item you received, maybe defective. If you are able to send me an image of the item we can get this issue resolved for you. My email is
Many thanks, Adel.

Awesome hold, super useful

First time I’ve used a 3M stick mount and it’s holding really well on the stick side, no sign it’s weakening. On the magnet side the phone never falls out, but it will slide off if you try to put a lightning cable in or pull one out from the phone while it’s mounted. That’s a real nitpick because otherwise it’s an awesome mount.
