Keep up with Apple Watch band seasonal colors without breaking the bank
Apple often releases special colors that are just for the season, and they’re gone after a limited time. If you’re a fashion-forward Apple Watch user, you may want to have these seasonal colors in your collection of Apple Watch bands, but don’t want to break the bank doing so. Fortunately, there are plenty of cheap alternatives out there, and we’ve rounded them up right here for you.
HAOBEI Sport Band Pride Edition
Apple released a gorgeous new Pride 2020 band this year, but the problem is that it costs $50. HAOBEI has replicated the Pride 2020 look pretty well, with the vertical rainbow stripes on a silicone sport band. The best part is that it costs a fraction of Apple’s own.
Just do it for pride
Gizget Silicone Sport Band Pride
Do you prefer the Nike Pride 2020 band, but don’t want to shell out $50 for it? Gizget has a nice replica of the Nike Pride 2020 band, featuring the white silicone band with rainbow holes. It’s a nice, subtle pride look that won’t break the bank.
As soft as linen
AMATOP10 Sport Band Linen Blue
AMATOP10 has a wide variety of sport band colors, including the new Linen Blue. This color is neutral enough to go with anything, and is super affordable, so pick up more than one color if you want.
AMATOP10 Sport Band Beryl
Apple’s Seafoam Sport Band is a light green color, which AMATOP10 has replicated nicely. Beryl may not be an exact match, but it’s one of the closest that you’ll find. This light green color is sure to add summer flair to any outfit.
Healthy dose of Vitamin C
EREG Sport Band Vitamin C
This bright orange color will brighten up any summer outing. The silicone material is soft and breathable, and comes in plenty of other colors too, including the Pride rainbow.
AMATOP10 Sport Band Coastal Gray
AMATOP10 also has this Coastal Gray color, which is a fantastic neutral that works year-round. Despite the “gray” in the name, it has a bit of a brownish hue, so it’s perfect for professional settings.
A prickle of color
AMOTOP10 Sport Band Cactus
Apple released a Cactus Sport Band earlier in the year, but if you’ve been itching to get it for less, then AMATOP10 has a worthy alternative. Since this is an older shade, it may not be available for too long, so make sure to snatch it up if you love the cactus color.
AMOTOP10 Sport Band Grapefruit
Like Cactus, Grapefruit was released earlier on in the year. AMOTOP10 still has the Grapefruit color in its collection of replica band straps, so if you want to brighten up your outfit with this juicy color, make sure to pick it up!
AMATOP10 Sport Band Surf Blue
Surf Blue is another Spring 2020 color, but it’s gorgeous. AMATOP10 has a nice copy of the Surf Blue hue, but again, since it’s an older color, it may be in limited supply as well.
A ray of sunshine and vitamins
RUOQINI 2-pack Sport Loop Sunshine and Vitamin C
Sunshine and Vitamin C are Spring 2020 colors for Sport Loops, but you can still get both from RUOQINI. These sporty and bright bands add a nice splash of color to any outfit, and the breathable material makes it great for working out.
YC YANCH Sport Loop Neon Lime
Love neons? Then the Neon Lime Sport Loop from YC YANCH is an affordable way to add some bright neon green to your wrist. The high quality nylon material is breathable and easily adjustable, so you should be able to find your perfect fit.
A perfect pairing
YC YANCH Sport Band Black/Volt
If the Nike Sport Band in Black/Lime Blast appeals to you, then this replica from YC YANCH is the next closest thing. It’s a copy of the Nike Sport Band style with a black strap and neon green holes. It’s perfect for working out in, so just do it.
Fade into midnight
Taolla Silicone Band Midnight Turquoise/Aurora Green
The Nike Sport Band in Midnight Turquoise/Aurora Green is beautiful, and Taolla has replicated it well with this strap. The two colors pair nicely and don’t look too outlandish together, so you can wear it all the time.
Blast around the world
Tovelo Sport Loop World Indigo/Lime Blast
The World Indigo/Lime Blast is a very neutral color that will go with anything, so you can use this strap all year long. Tovelo uses a nice, breathable nylon, so this is a great strap for all of your sweaty workouts.
Add some color to your life
And there you have it. Most of these are very, very close to Apple’s own offerings, but you can obtain them for a fraction of the cost. For the most part, quality here is decent considering for the price you’re paying for them. However, if you just like having more options available to choose from each day, then the more the merrier!
Our personal favorite from these is the HAOBEI Sport Band Pride Edition, because it’s a very close replica to Apple’s official Pride 2020 band. The silicone material is comfortable to wear, and you’re still showing off your Pride, or that you’re an ally for Pride. If you want to support Pride but want to do so in a more subtle way, then the Gizget Silicone Sport Band Pride is a better option. It’s not as in-your-face as the other Pride band, but you’re still showing your support.
Perhaps you just like the Nike rainbow style. I you want to get the most bang for your buck, then the RUOQINI Sport Loop 2-packs let you get some great color combos for cheap, and the Sport Loop style is amazingly comfy!
