If there's one thing that has been missing from the Apple Watch world the past few months, it's the availability of lots of accessories for the device. That freeze has been thawing lately as more manufacturers get their production under way, and the latest to unveil products is accessory manufacturer X-Doria with the new Defense Edge shell and LUX Band for Apple Watch.
First, the Defense Edge (US$29.99) shell is designed to protect the sides of your Watch with a machined aluminum exterior cushioned with rubber beneath. It's easy to install and remove, available in sizes for both 38mm and 42mm Watches, and comes in an array of colors: gold, silver, blue and red. The latter color is available exclusively at Best Buy stores.
The LUX Band for Apple Watch (US$49.99) is designed to work perfectly for tool-free installation on your Watch. They're all made of real leather, in black, black croc, brown and white croc. Three versions are available each for both the 42mm and 38mm Apple Watch.
We'll have a full review of both of the new X-Doria accessories soon.
