In the six years since the original Apple Watch was announced, Apple has already created 423 unique bands in dozens of colors and materials. Bandbreite, a new iPhone app launched today, catalogs every single Apple Watch band and helps you organize your personal collection.

Bandwidth allows you to add specific bands to your collection or a wish list. For Apple Watch owners with dozens of bands gathered over several years, detailed statistics provide unique insights into style and color settings. If you’ve brave enough to watch, the app will even calculate the approximate value of your collection based on the retail price of each band.
The team behind Bandbreite has thought of all the details. The app includes a sticker pack for iMessage, custom app icons and even a widget on the home screen. iOS 14 users can download it for free today on the App Store. If you like Bandbreite, you can support the continued development by buying the developers a coffee.
