Discover the Ultimate Apple Watch Straps for Athletes!

In the world of sports and fitness, the Apple Watch has certainly made it's mark! Since its introduction in 2015, it has quickly cemented its place as the go-to choice for many athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike. The plethora of features, apps and tools packed into this small device on your wrist provide endless possibilities for leisure and workouts, from run tracking and calorie counting, to workout and meal planning.

If you're someone who uses their Apple Watch as a fitness tool then it's just as important to have a strap that can hold up to the many challenges that'll be thrown at it! Through vigorous workouts, stretches, swims and runs, your Apple Watch strap experiences some serious wear and tear - constant rubbing, movement, changes in temperature and dips in water, all of which can end up compromising the integrity of the strap if it isn't fully up for the challenge. In this blog we'll go over some of the best options for someone who's looking for a super durable workout strap that can withstand all of the challenges associated with gym workouts and activities.

Comfort for the Long Haul

With all the movement going on during a workout, it's imperative that you have a strap that stays comfy throughout the whole thing. There's nothing worse than getting halfway into a workout or a long run, and your Apple Watch straps begins to rub against your wrist! Not only is it annoying and uncomfortable but it also takes your concentration away from the activity. In terms of materials, you'd want an Apple Watch strap that's made from a durable yet comfortable material that won't rub against your skin and cause irritation, especially when mixed with sweat and perspiration. 

Secure Fit

If you're constantly moving, shaking, sweating, jumping, swimming and the rest - It's important that you have an Apple Watch strap that can withstand all of that, and still cling to your wrist. No one wants to lose their Apple Watch in the middle of a run, and have to clench on to it for the remaining time! We'd recommend a strap with a buckle or clasp system, as these provide the most secure fit for vigorous activities. These kinds of straps will provide the most comfort and security during a workout.

Above most things, it's important to find a workout strap that suits your own style and mood. Not only does it make it more fun and personal to you, but it reflects your personal tastes and complements your overall look. Many brands offer a range of styles and colours that allow you to express your own taste and personality.

When it comes to your Apple Watch, we understand that comfort is not just a luxury but a necessity, particularly during those extended jogs, intense workouts, and exciting adventures. At Buckle & Band, we take pride in crafting Apple Watch straps that redefine the meaning of comfort for the long haul.


Possibly the most important property of an Apple Watch workout band is the materials that it's made from. Strong and durable materials are a must, but they must also be able to have some give to them, also allowing your wrist to "breathe" during a workout. Some workout straps are made from woven nylon, because of its breathability and softness upon the wrist - while it is soft and gentle against the skin, the material can also harbour heat during a workout which could result in more perspiration or rubbing, if for a prolonged time. Materials like Silicone and fluoroelastomer are other good examples because of their flexibility and breathability.
