Or maybe you have an older model of gold Apple Watch and have been on the hunt for the perfect band for a while. Never fear! iMore’s here! Not just any band goes with a gold Apple Watch, so we’ve rounded up the best of the best just for you. (Aren’t you special?)
OULEDI Stainless Steel Apple Watch Band
OULEDI makes some gorgeous Milanese Loop-style bands that are guaranteed to match the color of your gold Apple Watch (or any other color of Apple Watch, really). These bands are flexible, comfortable, and especially easy to put on and take off, thanks to the fold-over clasp design.
All that Glitters is Gold
UMTELE Gold Metal Butterfly Clasp Band
So you have your gold Apple Watch: now you need a band that really matches. The UMTELE Gold Metal Butterfly Clasp Band is an easy-to-install, jaw-dropping gold band that fits your Apple Watch Series 4 effortlessly. The band isn’t super simple to adjust for wrist size due to its butterfly clasp, but it is possible to have links removed to make it smaller. The band is super thin, so despite how heavy and expensive it looks, it’ll sit softly on your wrist.
Best of both (gold) Worlds
Wearlizer Rose gold + Gold Stainless Steel Apple Watch Band
Add a little hint of rose gold to your gold Apple Watch game with some help from the Wearlizer Rose gold + Gold Stainless Steel Apple Watch Band! This particular band is a highly-rated favorite on Amazon and is made from a top- quality stainless steel metal that’s combined with eye-catching resin for a really stylish band. There are also plenty of cool gold color combinations, including gold with tortoise and champagne gold.
Lovely n’ Leather
Covery leather band
Covery’s leather band gold color option pairs perfectly with the gold Apple Watch. It’s a light, subtle color that could almost be mistaken for an off-white. If you’re not a fan of that particular color, there are a few more options to choose from too, including a lovely rose gold or pearly white. It comes in sizes for both the 38mm/40mm and 42mm/44mm Apple Watches, and you get an 18-month warranty in case there are any defects. Covery promises that this is genuine leather, and starting at $10, that’s a hell of a deal. Just make sure you choose the correct size before checkout.
Leather lasts, y’know…
JSGJMY leather loop
JSGJMY’s leather loop is only available for the 38mm Apple Watch, but it pairs perfectly, even featuring a gold buckle against its chocolatey brown color. This is a soft leather band that JSGJMY promises will be incredibly comfortable, and it should develop a lovely patina over time.
Gold, glitter, glam

This will fit all sizes of Apple Watch, just make sure you choose the correct size before adding it to your cart.
Bling, bling, bling
Secbolt Bling Bands
Your Gold Apple Watch makes a statement, so why not add some shiny and sparkly bling to it? These Secbolt bling bands come in shiny metallic colors and are covered in rhinestones that are sure to turn some heads when you’re wearing it.

This band is sure to give you a touch of professionalism and elegance without standing out too much.

Apple’s Milanese Loop in Space Black is the perfect contrast to your gold Apple Watch. It whispers sophistication and mystery while offering a dark accent to the lighter gold aluminum body of your watch. When Apple says "Space Black," they’re not kidding — this band is black. The Milanese Loop was created around the end of the 19th century and Apple has modernized it to be fully magnetic to ensure a secure and comfortable fit with no buckles required! It also comes in a Gold color to perfectly complement your Gold Apple Watch, if you don’t want the contrast.
