One of the bands offered by Apple for the Apple Watch is a silicone band designed to be used during exercise, but in case you wanted something that offered a better fit and also with a bit more flexibility, then you might be interested in Twelve South’s latest offering in the form of the ActionBand.
As you can see in the photo above, the ActionBand is like a wristband that wraps around the entire wrist more snugly than the silicon band. It is made out of terry cotton that not only can be worn around the wrist, but it is stretchy and flexible enough that you could even wear it around your arm if you prefer keeping your wrists free during a workout.
It can help absorb sweat and keep your hands dry and it’s a great alternative if you own one of Apple’s more expensive bands and don’t want to ruin it while you’re working out. According to Twelve South, the ActionBand will be compatible with most Apple Watch models like the Series 4, 5, 6, SE, and they note that support for the Series 7 is in the works and will be coming soon.
It is priced at $30 for both the 40mm and 44mm models, which is cheaper than what Apple charges for the Sport Band or Solo Loop, so it might be worth looking into if you’re looking for a fitness oriented Apple Watch band.
