Cassandra: New Apple Watch Bands in Thailand
By Graham K. Rogers
My preparation for the morning, includes trousers (UK-English), socks, shirt; and then I go through a process of selecting a suitable band, to match either short or socks, then customizing the watch face. This is pure vanity and I have a green shirt that cries out for such a match.
A new range of bands for the Apple Watch Sport was announced, made from woven nylon. I now have a couple of these and, like the fluoroelastomer bands, will go with the more expensive Apple Watch.
I was dubious of the material initially, but this week, with the sun directly above at noon, temperatures are running into the high 30s C. The woven nylon bands feel lighter than the fluoroelastomer bands and despite the high temperatures are comfortable to wear in the heat. I have two of these: in black and a red/blue mix.
The bands were slow in arriving in the shops here. My online-ordered Royal Blue band was in my hands over a week before they were on the shelves. I have now seen them in the iStudio, Siam Paragon, where they can be tried with the watches.
