Nomad's metal belt is made with premium materials, costing less than half as much as Apple's comparable internal tape, and gives Apple Watch a highly desirable, sophisticated look.
Metal bands in general
My experience with Link Bracelets for Apple Watch has so far been a mixed bag. I have owned Apple's link bracelet, which is expensive, as well as several third-party links that were not very reliable or as great as the first-party solution.
The new Titanium Band from the accessory maker Nomad, announced last month, is as comfortable to wear as Apple's link wristband. The metal strap and an associated dimension tool ship in elegant matt black box. It's nice that they include a baggy that protects the metal bracelet from dips and scratches when not used.
Armed with patience, I have found the metal belt to be easy to adjust and install.
The titanium band comes to the maximum size, so most people probably need to remove a few links for a perfect fit. The accessory comes with a special tool included in the box to remove or add links held with hidden pins. You also get several extra sticks in the box along with a cloth bag to store the tool and any remaining pieces.
To tighten or loosen the fit, remove or add some of the connectors, which only take a few minutes. To make your life easier, the band has arrows showing the direction in which the pin is pushed out. To remove a link, first adjust the round platform at the bottom of the link removal tool to align the needle with the connector hole.
Next, rest your tape should be smooth on the round platform and make sure the tab you want to remove is lined up with the needle, with the arrows pointing toward the slot and away from the needle. Turn the side wheel clockwise to move the needle into the coupling hole. Continue turning the wheel until the needle is fully inserted.
The pin should protrude slightly through the gap on the other side. Turn the wheel counterclockwise to remove the needle from the coupling hole and slide it out of the side of the link. You can now retrieve the coupling strap and pull out the pin with your fingers.
To mount the strap, slide lugs at each end into position at the same time because this metal strap is a single piece, not a two-piece design like most other watches.
The wear experience
I have had no problems with the band in my uncomplicated time with it. 19659008] There are no gaps between the connectors, which is why the accessories fit most to the wrists without the hair being pulled or caught between the joints, which improves the wear and tear experience of Apple's hair-bearing metal straps.
My review device arrived in Space Gray which looks stylish with my Space Gray watch-black finish with a special PVD treatment, giving it a gorgeous shine. The band is made of titanium, which gives much higher corrosion resistance than other stainless steel alloys.
Titan sport is a strength-to-density highest of any metallic element and is also biologically inert, so that people who tend to develop reactions such as skin irritation, skin tissue inflammation or rash when wearing metal bands can safely Wear this strap.
I I have worn the band in all sorts of situations, have it trained in the gym, running, cycling, working on my computer – I even slept while wearing it – and have no great complaints.
This titanium strap upgrades your watch's look to make it more modern and sophisticated, especially if you rock the Space Gray watch + band combination. It is considerably lighter than Apple's metal belt made of stainless steel and stronger than any metal band out there.
If you want to give your watch a luxurious upgrade, you can't go wrong by considering the new Titanium Band from Nomad. At $ 180, it's a fraction of the $ 349 Link Bracelet from Apple (and Nomad doesn't charge you extra $ 100 for Space Black).
