A tired looking timepiece can be given a new lease of life by transforming it with colourful and stylish wristwatch bands. Your prized possession can be restored and given a whole new look with a choice of straps from designer and household names, in a variety of styles and materials to suit all tastes and preferences.
A watch face will often last longer than its strap, so the perfect replacement wristwatch band will ensure it remains useful and continues to accessorise your outfit in style. Swapping straps is also a cheaper alternative to buying an expensive new watch when you feel the need for something fresher.
Give your watch a sporty look with nylon watch straps by NATO in contrasting colours, which promise a silky finish to feel smooth and comfortable on the wrist. For men and women who prefer a genuine leather wristband, there are classic straps available in matte black and brown which will fit all sizes of wrists. Or try a water-resistant leather strap with distinctive stitched edging in brown, black, tan, navy blue or black and orange, and a satin finish stainless steel buckle.
Among the more hardwearing options are waterproof wristbands made from silicone and rubber which would be ideal for a diver's watch. For those who prefer a bracelet-style strap, there are stainless steel bands which are easily adjustable and can be bought in metallic colours including black, silver, gold, or rose gold.
You can ensure technology stays at your fingertips with custom-made bands for Fitbits and Apple watches. A Fitbit Charge 2 can be given a fashionable makeover to suit the occasion with a package which includes one leather strap and two bracelet-style bands, or add a pop of colour to your Fitbit with silicone straps in hot pink, purple and mint green.
New straps to fit an Apple Watch include stainless steel bands in yellow gold, rose gold, black and silver, and sporty silicone and stainless steel straps in on-trend colours such as black and rose gold.
