MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Nylon Band From Southern Straps

Southern Straps is a small company that has been making high-quality Apple Watch bands since the Apple Watch debuted in 2015. It was the first company to start making nylon Apple Watch bands, and with eight years of experience, Southern Straps has had time to perfect its craft.

Priced at $40, each of the nylon Apple Watch bands is made from a single piece of nylon that's doubled over, heat sealed, and stitched together. This multi-step process ensures that every band is ultra durable and able to hold up for multiple years. In fact, Southern Straps offers a five year warranty for its bands.

There are twelve nylon band options, available in classic solid colors like green, black, and sand, as well as multi-colored striped options in colors that include blue and green, blue and pink, black and grey, blue and red, blue and white, and more.

Each of the bands can be ordered with custom hardware in black, silver, or gold to match whichever Apple Watch you have. The bands come in two sizes, one that covers the 38mm to 41mm Apple Watch models, and one that covers the 42mm to 49mm models. The bands are compatible with every Apple Watch model from the original Apple Watch to the Apple Watch Series 9 and ‌Apple Watch Ultra 2‌.

The nylon bands include pegged spring bars so you can change the hardware if you get an Apple Watch in a new size or opt for a new watch color.

Southern Straps bands can be used on a daily basis, and they're suitable for everything from work to sports. The bands are crafted by hand and the company aims to make sure that only the best quality straps end up on customer wrists.

Curious, has anyone here win any of these giveaways? If so, what did you win?
This has been asked and answered numerous times during many, many previous giveaways.

I've won a nice Woolnut laptop sleeve that I use all the time. I also won a Grid Studio art piece.

Yes, I won a set of Satechi ear buds (wired, not wireless) about 2-3 years ago. They're okay and they did come with a nice carrying case, but, of course, I much prefer my Beats Fit Pro wireless ear buds I have now! But I will tell you, I learned firsthand that these giveaways are the real thing! There are thousands of entries, so you have very low odds of winning, but it's free to enter, so why not?
