When Eugene Ho first saw the Apple Watch, it made him think of a jukebox. If the watch piece is the player then the wristband is like a song that can be changed according to taste and mood.

Ho is building a band brand, Juuk Design, that acknowledges the watch wearer who likes to change bands on a whim. The latest Apple Watch band from Juuk is the Ligero — an aircraft-grade aluminum link band designed in eight vibrant finishes that will complement the aluminum Apple Watch model in both Series 1 and 2.

The entire colorful Ligero collection is now available in our Watch Store. Enter the code Juuk2017! at checkout for a 10 percent discount.

Lust List: Crocodilus Apple Watch band by Strapple

This crocodile Apple Watch strap is a total crock. But in a good way! Made of Italian calfskin leather but stamped to look like crocodile skin, this beefy Apple Watch band looks exotic but costs a fraction of what a real reptile hide would set you back.

Let’s get the obvious out of the way first: When it’s standing there all by itself, the Ugreen Apple Watch Charger Stand looks like a giant joystick. For me, it triggered an instant flashback to the ’80s and the golden years of gaming.

That nostalgic blast wasn’t necessarily a positive, though: I didn’t find the Ugreen Apple Watch charger’s design instantly appealing. In fact, it was almost game over before I even gave it a try. I’m glad I did, because it’s ultimately a handy little charging hub.

The Apple Watch doesn’t need to live on one’s wrist alone. Ladies, take notice! The Silver Constellation Locket by Bucardo is a new way to wear Apple Watch, bucking current trends by melding vintage style and tech.

It’s a watch hidden in a necklace. Let’s take a look.
