Apple sells its Apple Watches in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold. While most people opt for the Silver or Space Gray options, the Gold is definitely the one that sets you apart from the crowd. However, finding a good band that goes with the gold color is a little tougher than the other two options. Fortunately, we’ve got your back. Here are some great options we found that would pair well with your gold Series 3 or Series 4 Apple Watch.
Nomad Modern Strap with Gold Hardware
Nomad’s Modern Strap is made of genuine Horween leather that is high quality and develops a fine patina over time, which gives the strap a lustrous sheen. The strap’s gold hardware will go perfectly with your gold Apple Watch as well.
Apple Midnight Blue Sport Band
One of the best pairings with a gold Apple Watch is this Midnight Blue Sport Band from Apple. Originally, the Series 1 gold aluminum was being sold with the Midnight Blue band, so even Apple thought it was in excellent taste. The Midnight Blue color provides an excellent contrast with the gold, making it a great pairing. Unfortunately, the Sport Band only comes with the silver pin enclosure instead of the gold, but the rest of the band still works well.
Like a fine wine
IYOU Sport Band in Wine Red
Another color that goes great with a Gold Apple Watch is burgundy, and this Wine Red option from IYOU is a good one. Its band replicas are made of a soft and comfortable silicone, and it comes with the same pin-and-tuck closure that we know from original Apple Sport Bands. The IYOU band comes in a ton of colors, including this fantastic Wine Red, and is also a fraction of the cost as Apple’s.
Keep it subtle
JSGJMY Leather Loop Strap in Beige w/ Series 4/3 Gold Clasp
JSGJMY offers its Leather Loop Strap in several different color options with the ability to choose matching hardware for your Gold Series 3 or 4 Apple Watch. There are a ton of different color combinations to choose from, but we like the subtleness of the Beige with Series 4/3 Gold Clasp. There are options for Midnight Blue, Deep Coffee, Army Green, Ivory White, and many more, all with the option to match your Series 3 or 4 Gold Apple Watch hardware.
Add a little luster
MARGE PLUS Genuine Leather Watch Strap in Gold
This beautiful band is made of a genuine, soft leather material that not only adds a touch of elegance and comfort to your outfit, but the gold color and hardware match your Gold Apple Watch nicely as well. The gold leather also has a shimmery sheen to it, which is sure to turn a few heads, and it looks classy enough to go into business meetings or a night out in town.
OUHENG Genuine Leather and Rubber Hybrid Band in Ivory White
This unique leather and rubber hybrid band from OUHENG is comfortable and supposedly sweatproof, so you can work out in ease while wearing it. The exterior is leather, while the inside of the strap is silicone rubber. The Ivory White color comes with gold hardware that will match Series 3 and Series 4 Gold Apple Watches, and the color combination itself is a nice contrast.
A cheaper leather loop
QIENGO Leather Loop in Khaki
While Apple’s Leather Loops are incredibly nice, that price tag isn’t. That’s when you should go for a more affordable Leather Loop option from QIENGO, and the Khaki leather loop offering comes with gold hardware to match your Series 3 or 4 Gold Apple Watch. The leather is high quality and soft, so it’s comfortable to wear all day. The magnetic clasp is also strong, so your Apple Watch is safe and secure.
Turn your watch into jewelry
Valband Metal Bling Wristband Bracelet Strap in Gold
This bracelet strap turns your Apple Watch into a fine piece of jewelry for a night out. The metal bracelet has rhinestones embedded into it, giving it that extra touch of sparkle, and the champagne gold hardware color goes well with your Gold Apple Watch. It’s easy to add and remove links without tools, and it’s easy to snap on to your wrist.
Classic Apple style
Apple Gold Milanese Loop
We love Milanese Loops because they’re easy to put on and adjust the size to suit your needs, and Apple’s is one of the best options available. The Gold Milanese Loop will go perfectly with your Gold Apple Watch, and rest assured that the magnet will not snag on clothing like other cheaper brands do. You could also get it in Space Gray for a nice contrast option.
If we’re making some recommendations
It’s a bit harder to find some good options for the Gold Apple Watch out there, but we think these are some pretty good options worth considering. Our personal favorite is the Nomad Modern Strap with Gold Hardware, because Nomad’s leather is top-notch and ages fantastically with the patina.
If you want something that looks even more classy, and don’t mind splurging a bit, then we also recommend the Apple Milanese Loop. The official Apple one is high quality and the magnet does not snag on your long sleeves, which seems to be a characteristic of the cheaper alternatives on the market. While the Gold option matches nicely with the Gold Apple Watch, we also like the Space Gray Milanese Loop too, as it provides an excellent, stark contrast with the gold casing.
Another good option that we like is the QIENGO Khaki Leather Loop. The khaki color is a good complement to the Gold Apple Watch, and the gold connectors blend in seamlessly with your Gold Apple Watch. If you’re not a fan of the khaki color, there are other colors to pick from too, but just keep in mind that they won’t have the gold hardware, so it may contrast a bit with your Watch’s casing. The Leather Loop itself is comfortable to wear and works just like the original Apple one, but for much, much less! Who doesn’t like a bargain?
