My favorite Apple Watch band of all time is a Juuk Vitero aluminum band in Midnight Blue.
I got it several years ago for my Series 4 Apple Watch, but I’m still wearing it on my blue aluminum Series 7, and it matches the color of the watch perfectly.
Some of the anodizing is wearing off, but I like the effect. It gives the band an interesting patina.
It’s still as comfortable and rugged as ever.
The band was designed and made by veteran Hong Kong watchmaker Eugene Ho, who for years made luxury timepieces for the likes of Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Ecko and Reebok.
Now he’s branched out on his own. His startup, Juuk (pronounced “juke”), makes beautiful, high-end bracelets for Apple Watches.
Juuk’s wristbands rival Apple’s aesthetics and quality — but cost half the price.
