The next generation of Apple Watch has been announced, and it’s a beauty for sure. The Apple Watch Series 9 has more processing power and faster on-device Siri with a new S9 SiP and more precise iPhone location with its UWB chip. The 2000 nit display is twice as bright as the previous model. You’ll want a brand-new gorgeous band to show off that brand new Apple Watch. Here are some of our favorite Apple Watch Series 9 bands out there.
Best for Apple fans
The Modern Buckle is back and it’s as gorgeous as ever. It comes in three great colors and it’s made from Apple’s new FineWoven faux leather. If you missed out on the Modern Buckle last time around, now’s your chance. Note that it’s made only for the smaller Apple Watch, but does come in three wrist sizes.
Show off your personal style with a custom design from CASETiFY. Made from recycled plastics, the soft, flexible, water-resistant band has a pin-and-tuck closure that allows for a wide range of wrist sizes.
3. U by UAG Apple Watch Band
Pink for pink
Even after reviewing this band, I find myself wearing it frequently, and it would sure look great with the pink Apple Watch Series 9. The U by UAG Apple Watch Band super durable and comfortable, similar to Apple’s Sport Band. It comes in a bunch of color options, not just pink.
4. Wearlizer X-Link Bracelet Series Apple Watch Band
For your upscale occasion
When I reviewed the Wearlizer X-Link Bracelet Series Apple Watch Band, I noted that it comes in many colorways so you can match it to your Apple Watch or other jewelry. It’s comfortable and super easy to adjust to your size.
For leather fans
5. Nomad Modern Leather Band
Apple may have discontinued its leather Apple Watch bands, but leather is Nomad’s bread and butter. High quality full-grain leather surrounds your wrist and your Apple Watch in luxury. The band comes in several color options and will develop a warm patina over time.
6. Apple Watch Hermés Single Tour Band
Stand out from the crowd with this unique Hermés Single Tour band. It does come in several colorways. While you may think of leather when you think of Hermés, this one is clearly not. Rather, it’s hand-braided Polyamide Yarn in a delightful chevron pattern.
