Huawei Watch with steel links

The Huawei Watch was our pick for Best Android Wear Smartwatch — until the brand new LG Watch Sport and Watch Style came along. But your Huawei Watch is still a great piece of wearable tech, and will also be getting the Android Wear 2.0 update so instead of dropping a bunch of money on a brand new watch, why not save money on a stylish stainless steel band instead?

Update February 25, 2017: These are still the best stainless steel link bands for your Huawei Watch.

Hoco Huawei watch stainless steel link band

Hoco stainless steel links

The stainless steel links by Hoco are a standout match for the Huawei Watch. If need be, links can be removed in order to get a better fit for smaller wrists, and all the tools you'll need to get them out are included with the band.

The hidden butterfly buckle provides security when you're having an active and on-the-go kind of day. The links are beautifully detailed and flexible enough for a comfortable fit. Tough to tell if this one is the real thing or a look for much less, and less means around $13.

Rerii stainless steel watch band

Rerii stainless steel links

As is the case with all of its watch bands, Rerii offers a one year warranty on its stainless steel links for the Huwawei Watch. Its customer service is just about second to none, and that alone is reason enough to include its band in our roundup. And the band is awesome, just so you know.

It comes with all of the tools you'll need to remove links or install the pins. The steel links look and feel like an expensive accessory, but at roughly $19, you're getting the link look you love for a lovely bargain.

YESOO stainless steel butterfly buckle watch band

One of the best reviewed bracelets comes from YESOO, and a perk that comes with the band is a 180-day warranty. Although, we have to say that based on the way people rave about the brand, you won't need to worry about using that warranty; it's just nice to know it's there.

No need to worry about any wear and tear while you put your Huawei Watch through the paces; the watch band is flexible enough to stand up to whatever your day has in store for you. The YESOO bracelet is also just about on par with the weight of the Huawei original, which is something to boast about at around $19.

MOTONG stainless steel watch band

MOTONG stainless steel links

Another brand giving the Huawei band a run for its money is MOTONG. The easy installation and removable links are top features for fans of the brand who can't stop admiring how much this bracelet looks like the real deal at only a fraction of the cost.

The clasp is a fold-over with single button release; it's easy to maneuver and comfortable against the inside of your wrist, which is just what you want after a full day (and maybe night) of wear. For around $19, grab one for yourself and one for a fellow watch aficionado.

Lucco stainless steel watch band

Lucco stainless steel links

Let's say you want it all: the weight and feel of the original Huawei bracelet, removable links (as many as six for those with a narrow wrist), beautiful polished stainless steel, and a fabulous looking replica of the real thing. Lucco has a band that ticks all the boxes.

The double push-button clasp is secure and smooth against your wrist, and the links are flexible enough to be comfortable no matter what your day involves. For around $25, it is excellent quality and still only a fraction of what you'd pay for the Huawei version.
