Under Review on The CultCast: PRODUCT NAME REVIEW “Oooooooh!” my wife squealed when I pulled the Juuk Ligero Rainbow Apple Watch band out of the shipping carton. The brightly colored links in the aluminum bracelet definitely caught her eye.

Unfortunately for her, the band wouldn’t fit her smaller Apple Watch. So I got to try it.

The Rainbow Ligero looks like no other band you’ve seen. As with Juuk’s other metal Apple Watch bands, the Rainbow version’s striking looks provoke an immediate reaction. Its bold colors — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple — shimmer on the wrist. And now it’s back in the Cult of Mac Store.

It’s made from a strong and lightweight thermoplastic and incredibly comfortable to wear all day long. And it’s insanely affordable at under $13. I’ve been wearing one for months now and it has easily become one of my favorite Apple Watch bands. Here’s our full review.

Ampere’s Apple Watch Charging Cable is a lot more portable than Apple’s. With its short cable, it fits easily in a purse or gear bag. As a bonus, it’s partially made from recycled ocean plastic.

I put the MFi-certified Apple Watch travel charger through its paces. Here’s how it did in real-world testing.

Here’s why the Qrono is the only metal band I’ll wear with my Apple Watch.
