Breathe new life into your Apple Watch with a cool, contemporary nylon band inspired by the original NATO watch strap. Best yet, this one won’t leave you cash-dry.

Spanish company Nyloon started with the goal of making high-quality versions of the NATO straps created by the British Ministry of Defence in 1973. The result is a line of fun, versatile and easily interchangeable nylon bands that are now flying off the shelves.

The original NATO strap needed to be as utilitarian as possible for soldiers. It was designed to be worn over or under clothing, such as a flight or wet suit, keeping the buckle away from the underside of the wrist to prevent it catching on clothing — or weapons. A durable, breathable material was a must.

Nyloon’s Nylon Apple Watch straps echo this early version in a fresh, modern way. Its bands are crafted from two pieces of thick and tough ballistic nylon built to battle the worst weather conditions. The bands are super-comfortable, lightweight and versatile, and add a bit of tacti-cool street cred to your wrist. Swap them out in a flash with Nyloon’s new spring-bar adapter.
