If you’ve got a new Series 4 Apple Watch, but have been lamenting that the precision aluminum bands from Hong Kong-based Juuk don’t fit, fret no longer.

After painstaking detective work and many hours of redesign, the fruits of Juuk’s labors are starting to hit the market. Currently the Vitero Ruby Grey, Vitero Cosmic Grey and Ligero Obsidian are available for the Series 4 Apple Watch, with more to follow.

Juuk’s steel bands for Apple Watch have always impressed us. June is LGBT Pride Month, and Juuk’s hard-to-get Rainbow Ligero Apple Watch band in 42 mm is back in time for the celebrations.

After months in production, we’re happy to have the 42 mm Juuk Rainbow band in stock once more in addition to the 38 mm. Also, Juuk is donating $20 of proceeds for each Rainbow Ligero purchased to Amnesty International Hong Kong to support their efforts to combat discrimination.

Grab one for Pride! Check out the entire Ligero collection in our Watch Store, and read further to learn more.

This band joins a lineup of 10 vibrant colors, five of which are on sale now. Have a look at the Rose Gold, and check out the entire Ligero collection in our Watch Store.
