Tested: 9 fashion-forward Apple Watch bands

Nobody will even notice your Watch—they’ll be too busy looking at the band.

The $249 Stingray band is breathtaking. I don’t even like orange, but the tangerine color is so vibrant that I instantly fell in love. The Stingray band comes in 10 colors, including “Indian Pink,” “Turqish Delight” (turquoise), and “Knight Rider” (black). The band is made of thick but very soft leather—it needed no breaking-in period, and was comfortable right out of the box—and has a shiny, pebbled stingray leather finish. One thing that’s nice about stingray leather is that it’s extremely durable, so I didn’t feel like I was going to scratch it or mess up the grain or anything like that.

Ullu’s bands aren’t cheap, but they’re comfy, durable, and they’re incredibly pretty. If you’re only going to buy one third-party band for your Watch, an Ullu band is worth the splurge.
