If you’re not enamored with the simple design of Apple’s watchbands or if you’d rather not spend $49, X-Doria has a great option for you. X-Doria’s Action Bands have a cool dual-color design and are made of soft, comfortable silicon with metal clasp and buckle. Best of all, they’re about $15 cheaper than Apple’s bands, at $34.95.

The bands are adjustable to eight positions and are very comfortable. The clasp is made of two angled metal prongs that poke through perfectly sized holes in the nylon band. Because the two prongs feel solid and are angled, the band feels extremely secure. The metal buckle also adds to the security of the band. Plus, once you slide the loop over the band, you add a third layer of security.

The Action Bands are made for both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches, and they will fit Apple Watches Series 0, Series 1, and Series 2 as well as the Nike Edition. They come in three different color schemes for the 42mm Watch, black with neon yellow, green with teal, and purple with pink. The X-Doria can be installed and removed without any tools, just like most Apple Watch bands.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
