If you’ve ever shopped for accessories for your Apple Watch, you’ve probably been shocked by the prices. Want a new watch band? Get ready to spend no less than $50, and they get a lot pricier from there, depending on the material. I can help with that sticker shock. Right now you can get a genuinewhen you apply promo code CNETAPSL at checkout. That’s 63% off the regular $49 price tag for new bands in regular retail packaging.
I’ve worn the Sport Loop Band with my Apple Watch and it’s a comfortable band. The lightweight fabric band is a little bit stretchy and secures to your wrist with Velcro-like hooks and loops. It’s able to weather a little rain and sweat without a problem, and comes with a one-year warranty in case there is, you know, some sort of problem. The bands come in both 40- and 44-millimeter sizes and you have a choice of colors, but availability might be limited. In the 40mm size, you can currently get red or a pride rainbow, though there are more colors to choose from in 44mm: pride, red, neon lime, neon pink, sunshine and Vitamin C.
