A more affordable alternative to Apple’s own Link Bracelet.

If you want a luxury look for your Apple Watch, it’s usually a pretty expensive endeavour — especially if you want to go for the official Apple Link Bracelet. While Apple’s option guarantees you the quality of craftsmanship and you know you’re getting a product that will last, it’s also going to put a hole in your wallet to the tune of $350. Cheaper options are often priced much lower for a reason and don’t offer the longevity of the real thing.

Nomad seems to be tackling this problem with its new range of Titanium Bands for Apple Watch. At $179.95 in both silver and black, the Titanium series sits in the middle ground between Apple’s high-end offering and the budget-friendly options on the market.

Well known for its quality range of iPhone and Apple Watch accessories, Nomad says its Titanium Band "has been engineered to be as light as possible while giving you the confidence of a high end metal strap".

The band works with all series of Apple Watch in 42mm/44mm sizes, fits wrists measuring 135mm to 220mm and comes with a special tool for removing links in order to adjust the size as needed. The silver has a brushed finish and the black version goes through a PVD treatment to achieve its dark color. Unfortunately, there’s no version of the strap for smaller Apple Watch wearers.

The Titanium Band is available to order at Nomad now.
