Some people are indecisive when it comes to buying a new watchband. After all, you’re wearing it pretty much all the time, so you want to be sure you’ve made the right choice, and to make sure it doesn’t smell awful at the end of the week.
To answer the question, out of all the various watchbands that Apple sells, many users find that the Sport Loop is the smelliest watchband out there. The band itself is very soft, and lightweight, which makes it the most comfortable watch band to wear without a doubt. However, the nylon material easily retains body odor and sweat, so this makes the band smell.
You can quickly close the band with a hook-and-loop fastner, or at least as Apple calls it. This allows for ultimate precision in tailoring the soft watchband to your wrist size. The watchband comes in many colors, including camel, Alaskan gray, pomegranate red, and so on.
Don’t let the sport name fool you. If you’re serious about running or working out, this watchband would be a terrible pick for you. We much rather recommend purchasing the Nike Edition Apple Watch Series 5.
This watch comes with a much more open design. Numerous holes scattered evenly across the band make it much more breathable than other watchbands. Along with that, you get some cool watch faces, all for the same price as a regular Series 5. This will be much better for your active lifestyle. If you do have a nylon band, Apple recommends these 4 steps to clean it:
- Remove the band from your watch
- Wipe down the band with a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth;
- If required, the cloth can be lightly dampened with fresh water;
- Allow the band to air dry.
Hopefully, this will solve your smelly watchband problems. What is your favorite Apple Watch band to wear?
