  • The Apple Watch is the most popular smartwatch in the world. In fact, it’s the best-selling watch model period, not just among smartwatches.
  • One of the best things about the Apple Watch is how flexible and versatile it is since Apple makes a wide range of interchangeable bands that you can swap out as often as you’d like.
  • As great as it is to be able to customize the look of your Apple Watch on a whim, Apple’s bands are very expensive — but there’s an alternative called the VATI Sport Band that’s available in even more colors for a fraction of what Apple charges.

I don’t care how much money you have, if you have an Apple Watch and you buy Sport Bands from Apple, you’re crazy. The company charges $50 a pop for two little pieces of rubber, and that’s not okay — especially not when other companies sell the exact same thing at a small fraction of that price. Case in point: the VATI Sport Band for Apple Watch on Amazon is identical to Apple’s official Sport Band, it comes in about a million different colors, and prices start at just $5 and change!

Okay fine, so there aren’t actually a million different colors, but there are more than two dozen colors available and that’s a whole lot more than you’ll find at your local Apple store. And it’s important to note that despite the incredibly low prices, these Sport Bands are just as good as the ones Apple charges $50 for. In fact, you won’t even be able to tell the difference since they’re made out of the same material and have the exact same design.

Here’s a review on Amazon about how great these bands are and how close they are to Apple’s Sport Bands:

This band looks and feels as good as the one the Apple Watch came with. It’s smooth and almost velvety feeling. The price is unbeatable and the color choices are great! I bought a yellow one and just looking at it makes me happy! It’s bright, cheerful, and summery – a true yellow. The band also has the same type of closure as the Apple brand. I’ll be ordering more!

There are plenty more where that came from because the VATI Sport Bands for Apple Watch is just about indistinguishable from Apple’s official Apple Watch bands. Head over to Amazon now and you’ll find more than two dozen color options in stock with prices that start at just $5.99. There are also different bundles available with multiple colors in one pack, and that drops the per-band price to as little as $4.62.
