A wonderful addition to my Apple Ultra 2 watch
The Bandwerk Berlin Carbon Blue is a quality watch band and compliments my Apple Ultra 2. It’s very comfortable.
To provide a less sporty alternative to the Ocean Band that came with my watch, I considered leather options that would handle the high humidity where I live. The writeup for the Berlin Carbon highlights that it has a special coating that deals well with moisture. I chose the blue band over the other colors due to blue working well with clothes I normally use either brown or black accessories with (belts and shoes). It is darker than the Blue Ocean Band.
Originally, I selected the standard buckle; however, researching the durability of strap bands showed that butterfly clasps reduce the wear on leather—less bending to get in the strap loops and abrasion from the buckle. While the band was in route, I contacted customer service and ordered the add-on clasp. Customer service was quick and informative when answering my emails. The butterfly clasp is pricey ($36 US); however, it matches the color and finish of the Ultra 2 case.
There are many vendors to choose from for after-market Apple watch bands. I am pleased I chose Bandwerk.
