Everyone knows leather Apple Watch bands are a timeless class-act, long-popular for a variety of reasons. But which kind of leather matters, too. One type might be quite durable but stiff, needing breaking in. Another type might be incredibly soft and supple from the get-go.

One option for the latter type would be ostrich leather. And while it’s always a premium choice, the Cult of Mac Store has a beautiful band for a surprisingly affordable price.

With the goal of making your smartwatch look even smarter, many of BluShark’s Apple Watch bands are made of high-end leathers. They include Italian calfskin and ethically sourced ostrich and crocodile leathers.

In the case of today’s featured band, pictured above and for sale at the link below, it’s genuine ostrich leather. It’s known for being very soft and comfortable, with sophisticated-looking quill marks.
