Accessorizing your Apple Watch with a slew of bands can be an expensive undertaking. But if you know where to look, you can find some high-quality bands that seem just as good as Apple’s — but only cost a fraction of the price.

The CultCast host Erfon Elijah is out with a new video today that will show you how you can pimp out your Apple Watch with multiple colorful bands without breaking the bank. The trick is knowing where to look on eBay and Amazon.

Take a look at some of these gorgeous bands!

eBay tends to have the best deals on Apple Watch bands. You’ll want to select the “Buy It Now” tab under the listing options. Then organize the bands, from cheapest to most expensive. (We’ve seen some bands that only cost $1.)

Selecting “US Sellers Only” will help you get your bands more quickly, because the ones from Chinese merchants often take a while to ship.

Apple Watch bands on Amazon

Amazon sells some cheap bands, too, but the prices generally run a little bit higher. There’s also a lot more crap to wade through.

When shopping for Apple Watch bands on Amazon, pay attention to reviews. Even though most of the bands appear to be sourced from the same places, some are utter rubbish.
