All the Accessories You Need for Your Apple Watch

When you open your Apple Watch box, it usually comes with a silicone band and a charging cable, but you can never have too many options, right? The included band is great for everyday use, but when it comes to working out or attending formal events like weddings and office parties, you'll want something that fits the occasion. Before heading to the gym, use this Nike sport band that provides maximum comfort with its soft material and extra breathability thanks to the hole-punch construction. As you get ready for special events, swap your everyday band with this rose gold stainless steel strap that transforms your watch into a pretty bracelet. It features a magnetic clasp to easily slide it on and off, and it comes with a matching protective case. Wear it with a cocktail dress and complete the ensemble by accessorizing with other rose gold jewlery. And for the gentlemen in your life, we recommend this sleek and stylish brown leather band perfect for wearing to the office. The metal buckle will make him feel like he's wearing a traditional timepiece, and the band goes with almost anything, whether it's jeans and a button-up or a suit and tie.

Aside from a variety of Apple Watch bands, you'll want accessories that protect your new smartwatch and ensure it's ready to use whenever you need it. This clear screen protector helps prevent cracks, shatters, and scratches. Its glass-like construction allows you to see clearly and navigate your watch unhindered. If you're looking for something that protects more than just your screen, you'll want to upgrade to this clear case. It has the same clarity and natural feel as the screen cover, but it snaps around the entire watch face for all-around protection. Last on our list of must-have accessories is the magnetic charging cable. Most Apple Watches come with one, but it's always a good idea to keep a backup at work or in your car. Simply plug it in and place your watch anywhere near the magnetic disc and it will automatically attach to recharge the battery.
