Our ultimate Apple Watch accessory ‌giveaway‌ is celebrating the launch of Ampere's new Legend Band for the Apple Watch.

Made from German leather, the Legend Band has been specially treated to make it water and sweat resistant so it can be comfortably worn all day long and for any activity. The leather will age over time and take on a unique patina that will be different for each wearer.

The Legend Band has a traditional buckle closure and the design matches any of the available Apple Watch colors. It is available in 42 or 44mm size options, so it will fit Apple's larger Apple Watches. It is compatible with all Apple Watch models, from the Series 1 to the Series 6 and SE.

Along with the Legend Band, the accessory bundle also includes the Unravel Apple Watch+ charger, which is a wireless charging station designed for Apple devices. It features two 10W wireless charging coils for Apple's iPhones and AirPods, along with a built-in Apple Watch charging puck for the Apple Watch.

The Unravel AW+ has a neat hinge design that lets it fold over itself so it's portable and ideal for travel. It's compatible with your MacBook charger, which is able to provide enough power for charging four Apple devices at once.

Ampere is also including the MFI Apple Watch Charging Dongle and Charging Stand, plus an 18W USB-C Car Charging Adapter.

Thanks for chiming in. Did the company offer to replace the product?
No. and they were very unresponsive, despite multiple attempts to reach them. If you looked at their kickstarter you could see many many unhappy people. I think when you are backing a project you should expect delays and growing pains, but they were pushing out the next product without adequately addressing the first. Was really a dissatisfier. My suspicion is this giveaway will give them free press. I just want to provide my experience with the company and the product just in case I can help prevent someone from having the same issues I did. My charger is a paperweight.

I have this from their kickstarter and would not recommend to anyone unless they win the giveaway.

The company has poor operations. The apple watch part of my charger does a continued cycle, and does not charge to 100%. It also gets super hot. If I could do it all over again, I would have gotten the nomad.

I imagine you can find it on the company’s website, a lot of accessory vendors post the coordinating wallpaper they use in advertising. (Like Nomad).
I searched their site and could not find the wallpaper. I think I will e.mail them, as it is very Tron-like and I dig that look!

I'm too old to wear such a trendy band, but I do think it looks cool.
Older than Iris Apfel?
