The Apple Watch is a good smartwatch and the Watch Series 2 with its water-resistant rating just made it sexier. But forking out a handsome sum for the watch and having to splurge again for watch straps that allows me to use it for more activities and occasions is definitely way too extravagant. Monowear, a brand launched on Kickstarter, hopes to provide the answer to that by offering affordable good quality watch straps for Apple Watches.
Compatible with all Apple Watch models, you can shop for yours at Antė stores islandwide. Here are the various ranges and prices:
Perhaps less slick then Apple’s Link Bracelet, Monowear’s Metal range still attracts a lot of buyers looking for a classic and professional looking strap for everyday work use. This strap is the company’s best seller and is available in Metal Black and Metal Chrome for S$129.
One of our favourite strap is from Apple is the Milanese Loop and Monowear calls it Mesh. Retailing at almost half the price of the original strap from Apple, this is a great strap suitable for many occasions. It is available in Black, Gold, Silver and Rose Gold for SG$119.
￼￼￼￼Leather and Leather Deployant Range
The Leather and Leather Deployant range is crafted from genuine leather in Napa finish. Colours include Black, Brown, Navy, Crème and Red. For the Leather Deployant series, the strap features a clasp for easy putting on and removing the watch. The Leather and Leather Deployant range retails for S$99 and S$119 respectively.
The Nylon range is the most causal of the lot and comes in Black, Grey, Olive, Purple, Turquoise and red. It retails for S$69.
