Apple Watch Buckles Up With UAG Bands

by editors on June 9, 2020

We ridden all winter with an Apple Watch safely tucked beneath the cuff of our arm warmers and felt fine knowing the watch was tucked in and safe. Now that summer has arrived and we’re more likely to be riding without arm warmers Apple Watch’s post and hole band closure looks a little more worrisome — especially during a rough MTB decent. Though we’ve yet to have our watch band bust open, it doesn’t seem like a good idea to wait and see. That’s why we were stoked to see that Under Armor Gear has added a Tang buckle to a silicone band that keeps the clean lines of Apple’s silicone band while adding the security of a buckle.

The UAG bands come in two styles the Scout and Civilian. The Scout is a single color band that comes in three colors (black, olive, and orange) and retails for $29.95. The Civilian features tow layers of silicone, a “branded stainless steel buckle” and  comes in two colors (black/orange and  slate/orange). It retails for $39.95.

We haven’t tested them yet, but we can say for sure that the buckle makes us feel a whole lot better about taking our Apple Watch out into the wilds. We’ll let you know how it goes. For more info, please click the link.
