Juuk’s new Qrono band for Apple Watch offers everything you could want from a metal bracelet without the nasty drawbacks. It looks terrific but won’t weight you down, and like all Juuk bands, it’s built to last.

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

Monowear’s Contemporary Leather Cuff is so good, it might just be my favorite Apple Watch band to date.
