When Eugene Ho first saw the Apple Watch, it made him think of a jukebox. If the watch piece is the player then the wristband is like a song that can be changed according to taste and mood.

Ho is building a band brand, Juuk Design, that acknowledges the watch wearer who likes to change bands on a whim. The latest Apple Watch band from Juuk is the Ligero — an aircraft-grade aluminum link band designed in eight vibrant finishes that will complement the aluminum Apple Watch model in both Series 1 and 2.

The entire colorful Ligero collection is now available in our Watch Store. Enter the code Juuk2017! at checkout for a 10 percent discount.
