The Nomad Sport Band in Limited Edition Electric Blue isn’t going to be for everyone, but if you love Nomad’s style and quality yet would prefer something with a bit more pop, it might be the band for you. You’d better hurry, though — this limited edition offering won’t be around for long.
- Excellent materials and construction
- Antimicrobial and fully waterproof
- Fits a wide range of Apple Watch models
Nomad has long made some of the best bands for the Apple Watch, and now the company has released a limited edition Electric Blue Sport Band for just $59.95. This Nomad Sport Band is bright blue, and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen from Nomad!
The Electric Blue Sport Band has the same design as those previously released by Nomad; it is compatible with the Apple Watch Ultra, Series 8, 7, 6, SE, and all previous versions of the Apple Watch.
Made from FKM fluoroelastomer rubber, the Nomad Sport Band is 100% waterproof, and it has interior ventilation channels that keep your wrist cool and help it dry quickly if you use your Apple Watch for swimming.
For those wondering, FKM rubber is a high-performance fluoroelastomer; it is antimicrobial and can be easily sanitized with soap and water. These materials, plus aluminum pins, make it fully waterproof and mean no special care is needed if the band gets wet.
Nomad describes their Sports Band this way:
Designed to give your Apple Watch a modern and athletic look for intense workouts and everyday wear. Sport Band has a lightweight and breathable design which is constructed from a soft, flexible FKM rubber for all-day comfort. A low-profile pin-and-tuck mechanism ensures a secure closure.
I wear their titanium band daily and swap in a sport band during the summer. I’m always a bit bummed when I remove my Nomad Titanium band when the seasons change, but the Sports Band is more comfortable for me once the weather warms.
Moreover, while I CAN swim with the titanium band, the Sports Band is lighter, and the interior ventilation channels also seem to make it more comfortable while swimming.
This limited edition Electric Blue color joins the now sold-out bright yellow High Volta Sports Band as one of the most colorful straps Nomad has ever offered. Like all Nomad Sports Bands, it features:
- FKM fluoroelastomer rubber
- 100% waterproof
- Interior ventilation channels
- Custom aluminum closure pin
- Designed for Apple Watch Ultra, Series 8, 7, 6, SE, and all previous versions of Apple Watch
- The band is one size fits most, designed for wrist sizes ranging from 150mm to 200mm
The Nomad Sport Band in Limited Edition Electric Blue isn’t going to be for everyone, but if you love Nomad’s style and quality but would prefer something with a bit more colorful pop, it might be the band for you. You’d better hurry, though — this limited edition offering won’t be around for long.
The Nomad Sport Band in Limited Edition Electric Blue sells for $59.95; it is available directly from the manufacturer.
