You don’t have to be an iron man or iron maiden to prefer some metal in your life, especially around your wrist. There are a lot of choices when it comes to holding your Apple Watch, but maybe you’re not hell-bent for leather or a fan of the Plastic Ono Band. You want a metal band and nothing else matters.

The Cult of Mac Watch Store has several metal Apple Watch bands available, from the affordable ($40 for a Rilee & Lo) to the high-end ($149 for a Juuk). Rush to check out a selection of these metal bands below.

Longtime watch purveyor Speidel is famous for the Twist-O-Flex construction that revolutionized metal watchband design. Two sets of stainless steel links are held together by pins, allowing them to expand and contract as you pull on them. This simple, solid design is the product of over-engineering. These bands are super-comfortable and long-lasting.

Available in brushed stainless steel, silver stainless steel and black stainless steel.

Price: $50 to $80

Inspired by race cars, Juuk’s Vitero band looks, feels and performs like no other Apple Watch band on the market. This matte Crimson red Vitero band with a gold stripe, made of 6000 series hard-anodized aluminum, fits all generations of the 42 mm Apple Watch.

However, be aware that this band doesn’t fit Apple Watch Series 4 due to some very small changes made in the smartwatch’s case. Juuk retooled its entire line to fit the new watches, but not all models have made it through manufacturing at this point. Keep an eye out here for updates on which bands have been released.
