10 Cute Apple Watch Bands For Runners, Fitness Fans & The Gym

So you’ve got an Apple Watch? It’s one of my favorite gifts that I’ve ever owned. My Husband bought me an Apple Watch and I thought I’d never need it. Now, I can’t imagine my life without it! I wear my Apple Watch every single day and it’s become a part of my routine. Along with wearing it daily, I didn’t want to wear the same bad every day. I love to mix it up with these cute Apple Watch Bands that can take me from the gym to work – matching my sense of style and outfit.

Have an Apple Watch Band and love working out? These are the cute and stylish designs that'll function with your workout, without sacrificing style. #AppleWatch #AppleWatchBand #Fitness #Running #RunningTips #RunningMotivation #RunningGear #Apple #Watches

I wear my Apple Watch to help me meet my daily fitness goals. It’s a quick reminder that I can look at my watch to check my activity, calories burned and whether I’ve met my stand goal. Since I’m wearing it beyond a fitness tracker, and also using it as a daily watch, It’s on almost 24/7! 

I’ve invested in a few different cute Apple Watch Bands that go with several outfits. They’ve got to function with my workout and match my outfit. Check out a few of my favorite ones below.

How To Change Your Apple Watch Band

On the back of the watch, there is a center release button. Hold down the center release button, then slide the band across to remove. Sometimes it takes a bit of effort to get the job done. If it doesn’t slide out right away, press the release button again to ensure that you’re firmly pressing it down. When you decide to change your Apple Watch band, you just slide in the new band until you feel it click into place. I change one side at a time, so I know it’s set up exactly how I want it (no matter what band I am currently using).

How To Tighten Your Apple Watch Band

Depending on the type of watch band that you use, will determine how you tighten your Apple Watch band. If you’re wearing a silicone style band (which is most popular for sports) you’ll tighten it using the hole method. For the stainless steel mesh strap style:

  1. On the adjustable buckle, open the top clasp.
  2. Place a flathead screwdriver or spring bar tool in the square slot. …
  3. Slide the adjustable buckle to the desired position (make sure the clasp is set in one of the indentations on the back of the band).
  4. Close the piece with the square slot and press it down toward the strap.

You want your watch band to be comfortable but close to the skin. This will help the accuracy of important readings for your fitness progress – like your heart rate.
