Do we want some accessories to go with our Apple Watch? Of course we do. Who doesn’t want some add-ons for the smartest smartwatch in the market? As you read this article, we are going to give you some of the favorite accessories that every Apple Watch user needs.
Personally, even before I actually buy something, I already have in mind a list of all the upgrades that I can equip it with. It’s no different with how you want to upgrade your car.
You just can’t help it. You just gotta do it.
That is why a smartwatch like the Apple Watch is very popular to many. The possibilities on how you can tweak it according to your quirks and preferences are endless.
It is our pleasure to present to you our top 5 must-haves Apple Watch accessories for every Apple Watch user out there (no matter what series you may have):
Top 5 Must-Have Accessories For Every Apple Watch User
1) Apple Watch Case
The first thing that you should get for your Apple Watch, aside from the screen protector, is a watch case. If you are a stickler for all things new, a watch case will help you preserve its brand new look. It can also prevent obvious and hairline scratches on your watch.
Usually, a simple clear or monotone watch case is a go-to for many.
It’s simple, it does the job and can be paired with anything – easy as that. There are a variety of watch cases on the market that you can choose from. Different materials like TPU made, metallic snap-on casing, aluminum, or a combination of screen protector and watch casing.
One of the watch case that caught my attention is from UNIQ, from the Valencia collection. It is a hybrid watch case that is made from aluminum and co-moulded with TPU. It gives a polished look with its matching aluminum buttons and comes in a snap-on design for added convenience. The watch case can be bought for $19.90 for both the 40mm and 44mm size. It also comes in three colors (light pink, silver and black)
2) Apple Watch Bumper
Now, you’d think that a watch case may be enough to protect your Apple Watch.
Well, yes and no.
Yes if you are only ever going to use it for your daily activities. Activities like running errands, going to work or school or a night out. Nothing too extreme. A normal watch case can handle all those things.
Now, if you are going to use it for sports then you might want to consider getting a sturdier case. Enter – the watch bumper. A watch bumper is usually made of a sturdier material and is designed to cushion the impact from bumps and drops. This is ideal particularly if you are into contact sports.
A decent watch bumper to protect your watch is the Tough Armor by Spigen. What’s special about it is the dual layer making the interior shock absorbent and the exterior rigid to withstand tough bumps. The raised bezel also protects the screen from scratches when faced down.
3) Sports Watch Strap
Halfway on our list is a watch strap suitable for sports. For us, it’s a tie between the below two watch straps.
The first one is from Urban Armor Gear, the Active Watch Strap which comes in a nylon weave hook and loop fastener. It is available in orange, black and gray camouflage . What I like about this strap is the rugged appearance and the usage of velcro, allowing us to have the exact fit when worn on the wrist.
The second one is from Nomad, the Nomad Sport Strap (Waterproof) priced at $39.95. This is made from LSR silicone which is naturally bio-compatible, hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. It looks sleek with its smooth edges and crosshatch design.
4) Dress Watch Strap
Another item on our list is a dress watch strap. Owning a leather strap is one sure way to elevate your dressing, especially for office environment or formal occasion, yet does not look out of place in casual meetups.
Thankfully, the Apple Watch makes it easier for us to change its straps. We can always mix and match according to what we are wearing and to the occasion. One store with a large collection of leather watch straps is Nomad Watch Works. I highly recommend the Apple Watch Dress Epsom Leather Strap collection, a classic flat style strap made with the reowned Epsom leather from a french tannery.
5) Apple Watch Dock
We get it, you love your Apple Watch and you almost don’t want to remove. But you’ve gotta. Now, the question is, where do you place it?
Our last must-have watch accessory for the Apple Watch is a stylish watch dock. A watch dock enables you to keep your watch on display, not only to look pretty, but to let it charge as well.
I was able to find a good Apple Watch stand, once again from Spigen – the Apple Watch Nightstand S350. This night stand is simplistic, easy to use and does not take up a lot of space so it can fit on your bedside table or dresser easily. All in all, it has a good design is very value for money.
That ends the round up for our top 5 must-have accessories for Apple Watch users. Hope we were able to give you some good insights on what to buy for your Apple Watch.
