One of the cool things about the Apple Watch is how easily you can replace the band to customize it. However, Apple’s replacement bands can cost you quite a lot, with many of them costing around $150. Thankfully, there are many 3rd party bands that are just as great and for a fraction of the price, here are our top 5!
