The New line-ups of Monowear Apple Watch Bands (Nov 2015)

For those who have been following my blog, you will know that I own a series of collection of different Apple Watch bands. I have also shared with all of you with a number of reviews here. One of our most favorite brands is Monowear.

Monowear is very dedicated to make their products better and roll out new designs to millions of Apple Watch users since their tremendous success on Kickstarter with quality watch bands. Last month, we received and reviewed their new lineups for the month including the new Leather Bands and Black Metal Mesh.

In November, Monowear rolled out a new Gold lineup for all their existing designs, plus a stunning new design combining the beauty of polished stainless steel and ceramic. I am fortunate to get hands on all these new bands and am going to share with you in detail.

Black Leather + Gold Buckle
Material: Genuine leather, Nappa finish
Price: $79.99

Monowear Black Leather + Gold Buckle 01

Last month, we talked about the leather bands with black buckle that matches with the space grey model Apple Watch. To fit the new design from Apple with matte gold and rose gold, Monowear has added these options to refresh and complete their current leather lineup with yellow gold finish to the adapters and buckle.

Quality remains high as usual and the Black Leather option looks best with the gold finish on the adapters and buckle. This also matches with the color scheme of the Apple Watch Sport with Gold Aluminum Case, as well as the gorgeous screen covered by Ion-X glass.

There is also Rose Gold finish for the Monowear Leather Band and the price is also set at same level as $79.99.

Gold Mesh
Material: Stainless Steel
Price: $99.99

Monowear Gold Mesh 03

Last month, we also talked about the Black Mesh metal band which is pretty amazing to me and fits my Space Gray Sport better although I have already got the official Milanese Loop from Apple Store. These options are both low profile but elegant.

The Gold Mesh, in contrast, looks really sharp in person as none of the parts a of other color but gold. The color is more to matte gold side so the adapters go perfectly with my matte gold Griffin Ultra Thin Case. Since the case isn’t bulky, if you are using non-gold Apple Watch Sport but you like the band itself, this is a good combination that you could have.

One good thing I love about the Mesh band is that it can take 122mm-176mm wrists. So even I get fat or stronger, it still fits at anytime I put it on.

Gold Metal
Material: Stainless Steel
Price: $119.99

Monowear Gold Metal Link 01

The Monowear Black Metal Link is the first third-party Apple Watch band that I owned since I got my Apple Watch at first batch delivery window in late April. I am glad to be one of their backers on Kickstarter for this nice watch band and our review on it has been very popular in the community thanks to all the supports from readers and Monowear.

Followed by the black and silver Metal Links, Monowear just launched the Gold Metal this month alongside with other gold color lineups. There is nothing at all I can complain about the design. As you can see from the pictures below, the combination of gold and silver-colored stainless steel links looks extremely neat and premium. The brushed links brings a classy appearance that fits for all occassions that you go with the watch. The solid build and weight give users a comfortable wearing experience as well.

Surprisingly, despite the fact that the adapter finished with gold color, it goes very well with my Space Gray Apple Watch, even without the matte gold case.

Silver Ceramic
Material: Stainless Steel
Price: $149.99

Monowear Silver Ceramic 01

Last but not least, Monowear adds a new series of Apple Watch band collection to their shop. It is called Ceramic, and is available in both Silver and Rose Gold.

The band is constructed with two different materials, Stainless steel and Ceramic. The buckle comes with butterfly closure, in which you can easily open the buckle by pressing on both side of the release buttons.

Build quality is premium that worth the bucks that you pay for. All the links and parts are well polished to allow the band really stands out from the crowd. Pictures tell millions words so you will actually easily find how much effort has been spent on this stunning watch band.

However, this Ceramic band does look a bit feminine in my opinion. But similar to Apple’s Modern Buckle and Milanese Loop, with the right color you picked, the band will look actually more on a unisex side, or it may suit you in some way if you have a smaller wrist than a strong guy.

If you want to opt for the Rose Gold edition, you will have the pay a $20 premium than the silver one. If you have a Rose Gold Apple Watch Sport, you should definitely go for this finish.

So what do you think about Monowear’s new lineups of Apple Watch bands? Let me know in the comments.

    I just received my silver/ ceramic band a few days ago. I love it. The presentation package was very nice. The watch itself is of high quality. I just wish you would come out with a black ceramic/ Silver band. It is beautiful, comfortable and very feminine. I highly recommend it .
