Nomad Launches New Sport Band Slim for Apple Watch

Nomad, known for its lineup of accessories created for Apple devices, today debuted a new Apple Watch band called the Sport Band Slim. It is an iteration on the Sport Band that Nomad also sells, but as the name suggests, it has an updated aesthetic.

Priced at $60, the Sport Band Slim is made from an FKM fluoroelastomer rubber that is 100 percent waterproof. It includes interior ventilation channels to keep it dry and cool when worn, and it features a custom stainless steel closure pin with a pin-and-tuck mechanism.

The Sport Band Slim comes in four colors that include Glacier Blue, Sage, Bone, and Black, and it is designed to for the Apple Watch series 7, Apple Watch SE, and all other older Apple Watch models.

The new Apple Watch band is available today from the Nomad website, and there is a promotion right now that drops the price to $50.95.

The amount of hate on here for Nomad products is pretty astounding...
That's because this is treated like a news story... It's an ad – hence the hate (I actually like the look of the band though). If Nomad + Macrumors just had an annoying little picture or ad placed outside of the news line, then I guarantee you there'd be far less vitriol. But if you're going to charge 5x what other similar products go for on Amazon, then you need to be able to withstand the heat.

Why would anyone wear a band that makes it look more tacky and ugly?
I almost bought one just now, but backed out when I saw that the only shipping option to my country would raise the price by more than 25%.

Reasons why someone would buy this band?

1. It's flouroelastomer (synthetic rubber), rather than silicone. To the best of my knowledge, only Apple uses flouroelastomer for their bands, which is why "authentic" bands are so much better than the cheap silicone knock-offs you can get on Amazon (or better yet, AliExpress).

2. Unique colors, including black, which Apple (for some asinine reason) hasn't sold for years. ? I still have my OG black sport band from the first Apple Watch in 2015, but it's looking a little naff...

3. Design. Maybe some people like the design?
