From the moment I purchase an Apple Watch Band, I had my sights set on a stainless steel link bracelet to compliment it - metal just looks great on metal. So, now let's first see the bands that are available for both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches.
Best Apple Watch Stainless Steel Bands
1. Ceramic Style Stainless Steel - $99
Premium without Compromise
Matches Apples Premium styling but in Stainless Steel
Adds weight to Apple Watch (subjective)
I've always enjoyed the design of the Apple Watch Ceramic edition watch band however there was one thing that put me off the band entirely... the ceramic itself was unfortunately not appealing to me as it did not 'shine'. That is when I came across the stainless steel version below which gave the premium shine and feeling that I was looking for!
Equipped with the link remover tool (simply a SIM card remover), you can customise and adjust the length of the band to ensure the most comfort. It might cost a lot, but if you're a watch enthusiast, there's not substitute for quality. Check out the band available in Black and Silver.
2. Milanese Loop - $39.99
Cheaper, but just as nice as Apple's
Adjustable magnetic enclosure
Adds a premium, elegant look
Can get arm hair caught
This is definitely the most versatile of the Apple Watch Stainless Steel bands. I have personally used the Milanese Loop in many occasions ranging from daily work to weddings and even at the gym doing weights!
It is without fail the most comfortable of the stainless steel bands I've worn and catches the eye of others with it's unique design. I highly recommend you to add the Milanese Loop to your Apple Watch Band collection if you haven't done so already!
3. Classic Stainless Steel - $49.99
Link bracelet on a budget
Adjustable link sizing
Looks more premium than it costs
Requires a link removal tool to adjust size
With a look akin to high-end mechanical watches, the Classic Stainless Steel possesses a sophisticated sheen that the others don't. This band represents elegance and simplicity in its design giving it the attention that is warranted. If you want to stand out from the cloud at the fraction of the price of the Apple Link bracelet, purchase the Classic Stainless Steel available in Black, Silver, Rose Gold & Gold
