The Apple Watch is arguably the best smartwatch on the market right now, and for good reason. It comes with fitness tracking, heart rate monitoring, Bluetooth connectivity, GPS, and even waterproofing. It’s so good, in fact, that people are still buying the Apple Watch Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3 despite there being a brand-new model on the market right now.
Though Apple Watches come with a lot of great features, what makes them so versatile is the ability to accessorize them to fit your lifestyle. Whether you’re using it for swimming, running, or just as an extension of your iPhone, there are hundreds of great strap options to choose from.
Though there are some straps that can cost you upward of $100, we’ve found some of the best Apple Watch straps on Amazon for under $25. If you’re ready to upgrade your smartwatch with something a little more suited to you, here are 4 great options.
