X-Doria has just released the new Mesh Band ($49.99), a watch band similar to Apple's pricy Milanese Loop in looks but at a quarter of the price.
The Mesh Band comes in two finishes -- charcoal black (at right) and silver -- and fits wrist sizes from 130 to 180mm. As with the Milanese Loop, the Mesh Band uses magnets to hold the band closed on your wrist, and no tools are needed to install the band.
The Mesh Band fits all 42mm Apple Watches and is perfect for those who want the style of the Milanese Loop, a one year warranty, and a lot more money left over in their wallets. We'll have a review of the X-Doria Mesh Band on Apple World Today in the near future.
