Apple’s new Leather Link strap for Apple Watch has handmade Roux Granada leather made in France. The strap wraps elegantly around the wrist and is magically fastened with flexible molded magnets that are gently bent to maintain a secure, comfortable fit throughout the day.
Andrew O’Hara for AppleInsider:
Apple’s latest premium Apple Watch strap is the unique Leather Link that stays secure with magnets encased in genuine leather, and it is a good choice for affordable luxury.
The new Leather Link is a new style for Apple with a unique two-piece structure compared to the standard Leather Loop. In addition to the yellow poppy in California and traditional black … it also comes in Baltic blue and saddle brown.
Each side of the strap is made of two pieces of leather with several magnets sandwiched between. The long side of the strap is folded over the small side to keep the strap on the wrist securely. In our time with the band, it never came loose. It takes quite a bit of force to separate the straps when they are pulled apart, but they pull easily apart when one edge is peeled from the other.
There are both 40mm and 44mm sizes on the Leather Link, and they fit all generations of the Apple Watch, including older 38mm and 42mm sizes.
This band looks fantastic, has good quality, and we know that it lasts over time based on our use of Apple’s other leather bands. Even the California Poppy color, which we thought would be too yellow, actually comes out as more caramel brown and looks perfect.
