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.

The Nike Training Club (NTC) app will be available globally on the Apple Watch beginning July 25. All 180+ workouts currently available on the NTC app will be supported by the Apple Watch.
