Stainless steel meticulously weaves its way through the Mesh Band for Apple Watch — Casetify’s answer to the significantly more expensive Milanese Loop by Apple. Casetify’s version is just as stylish and functional as the behemoth brand’s band, and now comes in two brand-new finishes: Iridescent and Gold (that matches the Series 3).

For penny-counters, you’ll save from $67 to $117 on Casetify’s silver and black stainless steel mesh bands, respectively, and gain three additional colors not offered by Apple: gold, rose gold and iridescent.

Casetify designs all its products to be super stylish and functional, and its latest collection of Stainless Steel Bands for Apple Watch is no exception. The Stainless Steel Mesh Bands are for both men and women. Check out the latest colors in our Watch Store, and read on to learn more.

Crafted from woven stainless steel that looks extremely similar to that of the Milanese Loop, Casetify’s version is comfortably lightweight and breathable — the mesh allows air to pass through to the skin. You’ll avoid the sweating commonly found in wearing leather and solid-metal bands.

Full disclosure: I have very sensitive skin and any nonmetal tends to give me a rash. After a solid week of wear, I’m pleased to report zero problems with the stainless steel and can’t emphasize enough the comfort of this band.

Additional benefits of stainless steel and this particular woven-mesh pattern are that this band won’t tarnish, scratch or react to anything you may already have on your skin like lotions or fragrance.

Closes securely in a ‘snap’

A secure, magnetic closure ensures a snug, seamless wrist fit. Adjust the band to the desired length and the closure simply ‘snaps’ into place ensuring the strap won’t budge throughout the day. Tighten or give your wrist a little breathing room — this band will fit just about anyone.

I love the look and design of the magnetic clasp and matching adapters of this beautiful, sleek band. Simply slip the adapters into Apple Watch, adjust the strap and pop it closed.
