The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches on the market. Whether you have the budget-friendly Apple Watch SE or the all-singing Apple Watch Ultra it quickly becomes part of your life, making it difficult to go back to a regular watch.
One of my favourite things about the Apple Watch though is the ability to dress it up and dress it down to suit the occasion. With a sports strap, you are ready for a workout, but slide on a leather or metal strap and the watch can look just as at home with a formal suit or dress.
Apple offers its own wide range of straps, and most are interchangeable between models, but buying multiple straps can get pricey. One option is of course the third-party market. While these vary in quality, there are some good ones out there that won't cost you the Earth, and give you a change of look for your watch, when you need it.
