DIY: How to Make Apple Watch Bands

· · Link

Andrew O’Hara put together a neat DIY video on how to make Apple Watch bands. He tells you what parts and tools you”ll need and how to put it all together.

By putting the band together yourself, you have so many more options opened up to you. Your watch can now represent you and your style without being limited by the Apple Watch market or the steep markups we see for the best bands.

Sell these on Etsy and use words like “bespoke” and “artisanal.” You’ll be drowning in cash.

Juuk Apple Watch Band with Deployant Buckle and Metal Bracelet

· · Cool Stuff Found

I love a good deployant clasp for a watch, but there aren’t many Apple Watch straps that feature them. I’ve been wearing one from Monoware that I like, but I found another line I want to check out, too. It’s the Juuk line from MyAppleWatchBand.com. It features metal bracelets in solid red, silver, and dark gray (at $119), or you can get a racing stripe down the middle like the three I picked below (at $149). The bracelets are made of anodized aluminum, while the double push button butterfly deployant buckle is made from 316L stainless steel. I’ll let you know what I think once I’ve used one.

Apple appears to be increasingly comfy offering yesterday’s technology at today’s prices, and Bryan and Jeff are all cranky about it. They also talk about Brixo, chrome-plated and electrified LEGO bricks, and Apple’s new Clips app and what it means for social media. Oh, and Jeff had to edit out an F-bomb because Bryan got all ranty.

Apple Facebook Commercial Promotes Spring 2017 Apple Watch Bands

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple has a new commercial promoting its Spring 2017 collection of new Apple Watch bands. The spot hasn’t appeared on YouTube yet, but it is available on Facebook. In 15 seconds, the commercial flashes through the new bands launched on Tuesday and encourages people to “choose a model” and “try a band.” It was posted with the tagline, “New Apple Watch bands are here. Explore the possibilities,” Also, it should make my friend John Kheit sit back and blow bubbles of contentment until the cows come home. Or until this week’s episode of Pop.0, whichever comes first.

New Apple Watch bands are here. Explore the possibilities.
