Sport Band helps you enjoy a touch of rugged simplicity.

I have been a fan of watches since I was in middle school. My father, a long-time lover of G-Shock watches, gave me my very own watch. I never fell into the leather wallet/chain trend, into hats, or other accessories. However, my watch was always on my left wrist. When we went to the beach to boogie board, to the pool to swim, or to a band concert, the black rubberized strap case was always present.

I thought it would be a bit of a shift to change over to the Apple Watch, but I was surprised to find the design very similar to the G-Shock. I loved the ability to change the color, design, and material of the straps. This added a level of customization that was previously underutilized. Whether you want a sportier or a fancier strap, a thicker one or a thinner one, or simply a different color, you have several options to enjoy.

The NOMAD Slim Sport Band arrived in a visually appealing 3 inches wide by 7 3/4 inches tall by 7/8 inches thick hanging style package. The NOMAD name was printed across the top of the cover panel in a bold black font, which contrasted nicely against the silver backdrop.

The Slim Sport Band name and Apple Watch Sizes 45mm/44mm/42mm were provided within the lower white informational row, while a photo-quality image of the band dominated the majority of the cover. The slightly raised, glossy image showcased an Apple Watch with the attached rubberized band. I loved the display, the tactile feel, and the contrast against the silver backdrop.

Each side panel provided the NOMAD name atop a silver background with topographic map style accents. The lower white informational segment listed the strap color, FKM material, and provided a visual color bar. The rear panel provided two slightly raised images of the band. Whereas the cover picture showcased the front of the strap plus the attachment to the watch, the rear images provided additional views.
