Wood is the new leather for Apple Watch bands

Nature is truly present in the Teton Apple Watch band in Zebrawood by Wood Mark Watches. The wood for this special band comes from a species of tree found and sourced in Central Africa. Known for its richly veined, zebra-like stripes and pale golden yellow wood, zebrawood is a beautifully exotic material.

Read on to learn a bit more about these unique bands for Apple Watch, and the many surprising benefits of wearing wood. Wood Mark’s entire lineup of wood bands is now available in Cult of Mac’s Watch Store.

Len Trinca founded Wood Mark Watches in 2014 following 20 years’ experience manufacturing and distributing classic wooden toys. This, combined with Trinca’s insatiable love for the outdoors, provided all the inspiration he needed to start Wood Mark Watches, purveyors of wooden bands and watches, in St. Augustine, Fla.

“From our native Florida coastline to the Redwood forests in California, we’re inspired by the diversity and beauty of the American landscape,” says Trinca, who fittingly has named each model of wood band he sells after a national park.

We love the Teton Apple Watch band in Zebrawood for its exotic and rugged look. This striped-wood band can seamlessly transition from the office and beyond, all while using the latest tech. Distinctive and au naturel, these wood bands are naturally waterproof and very long-lasting — perfect for its wearer’s outdoor pursuits.

The benefits of wearing a wood Apple Watch band go beyond great looks. Wood Mark’s bands are extremely lightweight, putting less strain on the wearer’s wrist than steel bands. All materials are hypoallergenic and nontoxic including the stainless-steel butterfly clasp. Wood bands are also an environmentally-conscious choice as they are biodegradable.

Fantastic Watchband!

Had my eye on this watchband for a while, and finally found someone who had it in stock! Excellent fit, though a little snug (I have large wrists). Excellent quality! If you're interested in a Twist-O-Flex for your Apple Watch, definitely check it out. Only thing that would make it better is if I could add like three links to it, but again, this would be for my personal preference.

It’s beautiful

👍

Really nice case for my iPhone 12

This case looks and feels great -- and it fits the phone perfectly! It seems to give really good protection to the edges and corners. As another reviewer noted, the bottom is left open for the speakers and charging port....I don't see this as an issue, but your milage may vary.

I usually just carry my ID in the back pouch, but I think I could get a couple of credit cards in there, too. Overall, this is a pretty darned nice case for my phone.

Nice!

This is a birthday gift for my daughter who has an Apple Watch. I haven't given it to her yet since it's 4 months away (and I don't own one so I can't attest to how it fits) but it's really well made and looks terrific. She's an Apple-holic like me so I know she'll love it.

Looks like real MOP

The case is pretty, light weight and semi-flexible and has the visual depth, shine and appearance of real, black MOP. What you see in the picture is what you get in real life. It’s good looking, sophisticated and perfectly compliments my black iPhone 12 mini. I also like that it is a one piece design and that the edges of the case are slightly elevated around the face and camera openings so that you get a tiny bit of bumper protection (without the bulk of an actual secondary outer rim bumper) in case you drop it. I also like that it has a shiny finish so that, while it’s not “slippery,” it still slips in and out of my purse or pocket easily enough without dragging against any of my stuff that has a cotton lining, like some of the rubber or silicone cases tend to do. I don’t feel like I have to fight with it to get it into or out of a small space. Overall good looking, functional phone case. I like it!
