The prices of some of the Apple Watch strap accessories can unfortunately push the watch price higher than most can afford. However one company has taken to Kickstarter to provide an affordable $49 stainless steel Apple Watch strap that offers a quality alternative.
The Apple Watch stainless steel strap is contracted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy that Apple uses in its more expensive straps although costing at a fraction of the price.
Sanho Corporation the creators of the stainless steel Apple Watch band explain a little more about its design and functionality in the video below.
We strongly believe there is no better watch band material for the stainless steel Apple Watch than stainless steel itself. Unfortunately Apple’s Stainless Steel Link Bracelet Band costs $449 which can buy you another Apple Watch Sport.
It is reported that the $49 Apple Watch Sports Band cost only $2 to make so it’s fair to say that the $449 Stainless Steel Band would cost very much less to make. With no huge markups or expensive corporate overheads, we hope to bring you a similar quality stainless steel link bracelet band, crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the Apple Watch for only $49 (Kickstarter early birds).
We have started a small production and you can see the actual product in action in the video above. With your help, we aim to lower the cost of production further and make affordable stainless steel Apple Watch bands a reality!
