Give your Galaxy Watch new life with a fresh band

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a beautiful wrist accessory, but the stock strap that comes with it can get gross after extended use. Whether you're looking for something classier to better accessorize your watch or want a more casual band or something specifically for working out, there's a ton of options out there thanks to Samsung following the 20mm standard with easily swappable pins.

Everyone has their preferences, of course, but my personal all-around favorite is the Beafiry canvas band because it feels like your favorite broken-in pair of jeans — super comfortable and very versatile. I also recommend the Barton bands if you want to choose from a good variety of high-quality leather strap styles. Since the Galaxy Watch has so many uses, it's a good idea to keep around a silicone band for those times you plan to get in a good sweat. For that, I lean towards the Lwsengme silicone band, you get a good looking and comfortable band that can stand up to the most rigorous of workouts.
