While the Apple Watch itself is the thing people buy this marvelous gadget for, what makes it truly wearable are the watch accessories that go with it that range from various protective cases, and most frequently – watch bands. However, there are different types of users, each with their own needs and wants from the Apple Watch. One type of strap doesn’t always suit all.

Whether you wear your Apple Watch in casual settings, in the workplace, or during strenuous physical activities, you can have a different type of watch band for any use. If you happen to have multiple Apple Watches, you can even have them with different types of watch bands so you can choose one over the other for different situations.

We have compiled here the five best Apple Watch bands that you can use for various situations.
