Clock Clasps: The 8 Best 42mm Apple Watch Bands Under $25

* The Apple Watch Series 4 was released in September
* Invest in different 42mm bands for every occasion
* From breathable silicone to stainless steel, choose what you find most comfortable

Since the Apple Watch made its debut in 2015, it has evolved through four different series, with the most recent, Series 4, released in September of 2018. This series was the first-ever consumer device to have its ECG system receive clearance from the FDA, and is also supported by the American Heart Association.

It also has the ability to contact emergency services if it detects a fall, and a relocated microphone to improve sound quality. But what about style? The Apple Watch allows you to easily switch between different bands, so you can go from simple and sporty to elegant and classy, all within a day. Spy has curated some of our favorite 42mm bands below.

Featuring air holes throughout the band to make it more breathable, this band is designed for those who like to workout with their smartwatch. Made with a combination of hypoallergenic nickel-free stainless steel and high-quality silicone, it won’t irritate your skin or cause inflammation.
