We tested the new NOMAD straps for the Apple Watch. The sportiness of the Sport Strap and the elegance of the Modern Strap, two high quality straps with different uses but which coincide in maximum comfort.
NOMAD sport bracelet
If you want to play sports, what could be better than choosing a bracelet that is water and sweat resistant and that fits your wrist to get a good Apple Watch fit that allows all heart rate and oxygen saturation measurements without being boring. The NOMAD Sport Band serves both of these purposes on an excellent note, with a few quirks that make it one of the best options in its class. Made of fluoroelastomer in its entirety, with the sole exception of the hook in black anodized aluminum, it has internal ventilation channels so that perspiration and humidity does not get in the way of the wrist and does not end up causing reactions in the skins the most sensitive.
The connection with the Apple Watch is made through the same bracelet, and all along the bracelet we find holes for the adjustment of the bracelet, which allows it to adapt to practically any wrist (150 mm to 200 mm ). The hanging system is very similar to that of the original Apple bracelets, but with a more angular design, which I personally like a lot. The adaptation to the wrist is really good, it is very comfortable both for daily use and for sport. It is only available in black for all Apple Watch sizes and is compatible with all generations of Apple smartwatches.
NOMAD modern bracelet
If what we prefer is the feel of the leather, its elegance and its versatility to combine it with any garment, the NOMAD Modern Strap leather strap is perfect. The leather that the bracelet is made with is the classic Horween from the United States, in which they applied vegetable dyes to give it that color but leaving plenty of room for the leather to change over time, customize your bracelet like no other
Like any leather product, when you put it on for the first time, it is a little stiff, but as soon as you use it for a while, it will fit your wrist much better, as with good shoes. The bracelet is not waterproof and NOMAD recommends not to get it wet so that the skin stays perfect longer. If you want a waterproof leather strap, you have to opt for the Active Leather straps that NOMAD also offers us. It is available in several colors, in addition to the natural leather that we see in these images, it can be obtained in black and brown, for all sizes and generations of Apple Watch.
With NOMAD bracelets for Apple Watch, you will have to choose between sportiness or elegance, but not in quality or comfort, because these two bracelets are two examples of how to make accessories worthy of the Apple smartwatch. With different characteristics and uses, the sport band and the modern band are perfect and worthy companions of your Apple Watch. Premium materials and impeccable finishings that translate into products that will last a lifetime and are extremely comfortable on the wrist.
