With three models of the Apple Watch now available, Speidel, the watch brand known for creating the iconic “Twist-O-Flex” bracelet, has released the Twist-O-Flex smartwatch band, which is compatible with any generation and size (38mm and 42mm) of the Apple Watch.
Constructed of stainless steel, it’s available in silver or black and comes in a variety of sizes to fit small, medium, large, or extra-large sized wrists. Plus, the individual links stretch like springs, but return to their original state, so the Twists-O-Flex’s length expands up to additional five inches from its original size. Two sets of links are held together by bracket pins, allowing them to move, expand and contract.
Though I prefer Apple’s Flash Sport Loop for running and working out, the Twist-O-Flex is great for casual, business, and formal events. It’s comfortable, easy to put on and remove, and (this is very important) doesn’t pull the hair on my arms despite a snug fit.
The Twist-O-Flex resembles Apple’s Link Bracelet, but is claspless — and costs $400 less. So if you’re into saving money and still want an Apple Watch strap with a vintage look, this is the band for you.
