FAQs

What is the best leather Apple Watch Band?

Our top pick for a leather Apple Watch Band is Bellroy’s for its quality, style, and build. However, your own individual preferences should factor highly into your selection.

For example, if you work outside or plan on wearing your leather watch Band every day, it might be more worth it to pick a more utilitarian piece like a Bestig Band. If style or a luxury brand name are your FOCUS, the Coach, Hermès or Fossil picks are all excellent.

Are Apple’s bands better than third-party options?

Purchasing a watch Band straight from Apple will guarantee that the watch Band fits properly and has stellar longevity, but Apple‘s products can have a higher price tag without necessarily having a higher-quality leather than third-party bands.

In the end, you can readily find a durable and worthy leather Band for under 30.

Do leather Apple Watch bands fit all versions of the Apple Watch?

Most Apple Watch bands are made for specific models of the Apple Watch due to the difference in screen size between models.

Our list includes options that cater to multiple models, so you can select your Apple Watch size to ensure a perfect fit.

Apple Discontinues The Apple Watch Leather Loop

Sad news for Apple Watch fans. the beloved Leather Loop Band has been officially discontinued by the tech giant. The Band, known for its comfortable fit and premium leather material, was a popular choice among Apple Watch users. Though it may be gone, it will always be remembered as a stylish and functional accessory for the iconic smartwatch.

The Apple Watch Leather Loop which was unveiled to the world in 2015, was permanently done away with on September 14. Apple’s FOCUS seems to have shifted to their newest collection, the Apple Watch Series 7. The fan-favorite Leather Loop is no longer a part of the family. If one does want one of the Apple Watch Leather Band, they can either buy the modern buckle or the leather link.

Is The Leather Link A Good Replacement For The Loop?

For the most part, the leather link is similar to the leather loop in design and function. However, a major difference between both the watches is actually evident from the name. The Band of the Leather loop has to be looped. The link, instead, relies on a magnetic link to hold itself tightly against your wrist.

The Leather Link is for those who like convenience over everything else. Someone who likes the automatic attachment system of the watch. It helps that a person does not have to pull the watch over the wrist.

The Leather Loop is for someone who slightly prefers the old-school way of watches. They like Apple products but do not necessarily need everything to be modern technology. A watch that looks good and feels good? That’s enough—no need for magnetic attachment. Instead, someone who would rather loop the watch with their own hands knows it would stay secure.

Additionally, it seems the Leather Link has a shinier finish while the Loop is more matt style. The colors of the leather link are also more prominent. It is a matter of personal preference and how one likes to wear a watch.

Why The Leather Loop Was So Famous

When the leather loop first came out on April 24 of 2015, all sorts of favorable reviews came pouring in.

The encasing begins with a large size, at 42 mm. The next option is 44 mm. Since the day it debuted, Apple did not deem it fit to make any changes to its design. However, depending on a new series of product launches, they would change the color options. So the change in its design came in the form of an entirely new line of Apple Watch Bands, the Leather Link.

According to the reviews, the leather loop is not meant to be a waterproof watch or something to take to the gym. Though, you can do both activities with it. It is not for anyone that loves the classic buckle design either.

No, the leather loop is for people who have no interest in traditional designs. It is for those who like the graze of leather against the wrist but want the buckle to be different from anything else they own. It is a watch for any occasion and comes with multiple adjustable points. Something that would fit right in for a drink at night with friends as it will in a meeting. The Leather Loop is also known for its longevity.

Final Thoughts

Now that the Loop Apple Watch Leather Band has been discontinued, it makes people wonder what loyal Apple customers would opt for. All data and buzz in the forums indicate people have begun considering the Leather Link as soon as they heard the Loop was discontinued. The opinion on which one is better seems to be divided. The general conclusion is that it really comes down to preference.

Well, you can not buy the leather loop anymore anyway. If a leather watch is something you still like and your love for Apple continues to stay strong, the Leather Link is pretty much the only viable option.

Back in the day, I had a SpiderMan analog watch that I probably didn’t know how to read. Now, the world has incredible smartwatches from brands like Apple, Samsung, and Google that make the clock the least impressive feature.

While smartwatches today are heavily focused on detailed 24/7 health and wellness tracking, many have other advanced features, like a companion Android app, touchscreen display, call and/or text messaging support, installable applications, customizable watch faces, and voice assistants.

With so many different Android smartwatches on the market, finding the best one for your wrist can be difficult. ZDNET researched the best models on the market, including thorough testing of our choice for the best Android smartwatch overall.- the Samsung Galaxy Watch Pro 5.- to help you make the best buying decision. Through our research and testing, we were sure to consider factors like display, battery life, durability, and health suite. Here’s how they stack up against each other and on your wrist.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

Best Android smartwatch overall

  • Simple, sleek design
  • Body composition analysis
  • Improved, curved sensor for more accurate readings

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro specs: Display: 1.4 inch, 450 x 450 pixels AMOLED | Battery life: Two days | Dimensions: 45.4 x 45.4 x 10.5mm | Weight: 46.5 g | Water resistance: 5 ATMIP68 | LTE cellular option: Yes

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the ultimate health companion when it comes to Android smartwatches. With improved sensors from its predecessor, this smartwatch can better track your sleep, body composition, and tough workouts. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is encased in lightweight titanium for a comfortable but durable smartwatch.

From night to day, this watch has features for analyzing your health around the clock. Advanced Sleep Coaching provides a sleep score based on how long and deep your sleep was, as well as insight into how many calories you burned in your sleep. But where does this watch truly excel? In tracking your workouts and analyzing your body composition via an improved, curved sensor for greater accuracy.

This Pro model is a bit more rugged than the base model, as users can import GPX files for hiking and biking. The titanium casing and tough sapphire glass display suggest this watch is up for any adventure.

As much as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is for tracking workouts, it’s also built for a more casual experience. With a 590mAh battery, you will get all-day power for crushing your workout after a long day in the office. Additionally, when you sync your watch with your Galaxy devices you can access your phone notifications from your wrist.

“The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is easily the best wearable for Android smartphone owners and it excels in all of the smartwatch categories,” says ZDNET wearables expert, Matthew Miller.
