NEWS – UAG (aka: Urban Armor Gear) is well known for making ruggedized cases for your devices that ensure they survive everything you put them through. Well it appears that UAG is now looking at how they might apply their brand to accessories for Apple Watch as you might have guessed from the above photo.
This care package arrived at my doorstep last week sporting two different straps.
Here’s a closer look. The leather strap is a soft leather in a warm cocoa color with some internal padding and beefed up hardware that has that survivalist vibe. The snap in the second strap keeper and the debossed UAG logos are nice touches.
The nylon strap is a grey camo pattern with bolder sewn-in labels, sturdy lugs the same width as the watch itself and a big pivot link for easily securing your watch with the velcro strap.
There’s no mention of these mysterious straps on UAG’s site yet, so if you’re interested and want to find out more, hit the site up regularly or let us know in the comments and we’ll pass it along. – Cheers!
UPDATE: Product names are Active Watch Strap which retails for $59.95, also available in Black or Orange and Leather Watch Strap retailing for $69.95 and also available in Black. Those product pages are now live and can be found under the Shop by Style section and at the far right under STRAPS.
