Breathe new life into your existing Apple Watch or customize your new Series 3 with a cool, contemporary nylon band inspired by the original NATO strap of the 1970s. Best yet, these bands compare in quality to Apple’s nylon offering, and cost ten bucks less.

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 sporty, versatile and easily interchangeable nylon bands that sell fast.

Best List: Nylon band for Apple Watch by Nyloon

Nyloon’s Pride Apple Watch band is made with ballistic-grade nylon that’s thicker and tougher than ordinary polyester bands.

Nyloon’s Nylon Apple Watch straps echo the original 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. There’s some definite heft to the band as a result of its quality materials and construction. 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.
