I don't know about you, but my Apple Watch is my BFF (and arguably the closest thing I have to a relationship at the moment). As an avid runner, my weekdays consist of waking up, strapping my white Apple Watch Series 4 around my abnormally small wrist, and heading out the door for a jog whenever I can. I love closing my rings, seeing my heart rate, and, above all, tracking my running workouts. The only problem with this tech gadget? If I leave my house for anything non-workout-related, my Apple Watch's white workout band looks a little . . . cheugy. There, I said it. While I may have been informed of this notion via TikTok, I wholeheartedly agree - a sport band doesn't match dinner attire, after all. To set things straight, I went on a mission to find a more stylish, minimalist Apple Watch wristband, and the Goldenerre Black Stud Band ($88) fit the bill.
The genuine leather studded band comes in two sizes, as well as a few extended-length options. I opted for the silver studs to match my watch's face, but the studs are available in gold and rose-gold styles as well. Everything about this wristband was (and still is) perfect, from the sizing to the style, comfort, quality, and more. The leather breaks in more and more each time I put it on, and the band's soft, almost suede-like interior never makes my wrist feel overly sweaty or uncomfortable. Every time I wear it I get loads of compliments, and the best part is, it slides in and out of your Apple Watch hassle-free, so you can switch bands with ease for a whole new look whenever you want. If you're in the market for a new Apple Watch wristband that's versatile enough to go with anything and everything you own, I highly recommend the Goldenerre Black Stud Band for Apple Watch.
