NEWS – One of my favorite accessories maker, Nomad, recently introduced a new Apple Watch band made of hydrophobic leather. The versatile band can withstand dirt, sweat, saltwater, and sand. It’s made to go from workout to night out.
From Nomad’s website:
Built with hydrophobic leather and ventilation channels, Active Strap is designed for heavy everyday use. We took our Modern Strap design and recreated it with waterproof Heinen leather from Germany. Active Strap offers a full leather construction, in a design formal enough for any night out.
A high-tech tanning process developed in Germany infuses this leather with natural lipids creating a thoroughly hydrophobic strap that easily wipes clean.
The Active Strap comes in Black or Mocha Brown with your choice of black or silver hardware.
The straps are compatible with all 44mm/42mm versions of the Apple Watch. They’re one size fits most, designed for wrist sizes ranging from 150mm to 210mm.
You can order the straps today from Nomad today for $69.95.
I’ll be posting my thoughts on the new Nomad Active Strap in a review for The Gadgeteer coming soon.
