With the spring season approaching, it’s time to switch up your wardrobe — and that also includes your accessories. When it comes to smartwatches, you can easily transform the look by swapping out the interchangeable watch straps.

There are many watch band options to choose from, and we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite options to help jazz up your timepiece. Whether you’re going for bright and airy or more neutral, there’s a watch strap for every style.

Barton Watch Band White Canvas Watch Strap ($20)

Made of canvas, the Barton Watch Band is a great, lighter option to swap out in favor of the heavier watch straps you’ve been wearing this winter. With 18mm and 20mm bands, the white canvas strap is made specifically for the Nokia Steel HR and has stainless steel quick release spring bars — making it easier to attach.

Fossil Light Brown Leather Watch Strap ($30)

For a more traditional option, you can go for Fossil’s light brown leather watch strap. It still livens up your smartwatch with a brighter look, but in a way that’s more casual. At 22mm, it’s specifically compatible with Fossil’s own Q Explorist smartwatch.

NOMAD Sport Strap ($30)

The NOMAD Sport Strap adds a touch of bright color on the inner lining of the watch strap. Made of vulcanized LSR silicone, it’s rugged enough to take outdoors but can blend in with casual outfits as well. At 42mm, it’s compatible with the Apple Watch — Series 1, 2, and 3.

This 16mm mint-colored leather strap by Fossil will give your smartwatch the refreshing look it needs after such a long winter. The stainless steel buckle definitely makes the watch strap pop, but it won’t overpower your outfit or the watch itself.

Hadley Roma Mode Silicone Watch Band
Spring is the perfect season to break out those bright colors, especially after a long winter of cool and dark tones. This silicone band by Hadley Roma is available in a number of bright colors such as red, yellow, and green. But if you want to stick to more muted shades, there’s also black and gray — along with a white one that match with everything.

Made of silicone material, the bands are also super easy to clean if you get them dirty during outdoor activities. They’re available in 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, and 22mm sizes for Android Wear smartwatches.

If you’re looking for a watch strap that’s more subtle in color but not in style, plaid is always a safe bet. Kate Spade’s silicone watch strap in black and white adds that spring flair without being too bold. Coming in at 38mm, it’s compatible with the Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3 Apple Watch.

Misfit Smartwatch Assorted Straps Pack ($60)

Choosing just one watch strap for spring can be tough, but with the Misfit assorted 20mm straps pack, you can have three instead. Its “Seaside” pack includes a wide range of colors including turquoise, dark blue, and a cream-colored option. The straps also vary in material — you’ll be able to switch back and forth between braided nylon, silicone, and leather.

Spring is here, and Apple’s beautiful new Watch bands will help you celebrate
apple watch bands spring 2019 new hermes face

Apple understands that seasons matter when it comes to fashion, and with spring starting today, it has released a complete new set of straps and bands for the Apple Watch in some very cool ready-for-springtime colors. And rather than offering just a small selection of colors, it has refreshed the entire lineup from the Sport Band and the Sport Loop, to the Nike Sport Band and the Hermés leather editions.

The $50 Sport Band and Sport Loop are likely to be the most popular, due to the affordable price. There are three Sport Band colors — blue, papaya, and spearmint — and four Sport Loop versions to choose from. We like the Sport Loop more, as it’s more adjustable, more comfortable, and still suitable for both the gym and everyday wear. You have the choice of a spearmint, lilac, papaya, or cerulean color.

The Verizon GizmoWatch puts a quick-communication device on your kid’s wrist
The Verizon GizmoWatch for kids.

Today's smartwatches may be largely tailored to adults, but that doesn't mean that kids have to be left out completely. In fact, Verizon has announced a new addition to its lineup of smartwatches for kids -- the Verizon GizmoWatch.

The GizmoWatch is the first device in the lineup to offer 4G LTE connectivity, meaning that your child should have decently fast connectivity most of the time, especially if they stay within the limits of a city. Apart from the 4G connectivity, you will find a basic user interface that shows the time and allows kids to message their parents quickly and easily.
