The Apple Watch is an accessory for the iPhone. But even though the Apple Watch is an accessory itself, there are still some cool accessories being made just for the Apple Watch. These accessories let you change the look of your new smartwatch, protect the screen from cracks, or just keep it looking clean and pristine. We’ve rounded up the best screen protectors, straps, charging docks, and other key accessories to help you get the most out of your new Apple Watch. Read on to see our top five picks.
1. ULAK Replacement Wrist Strap for Apple Watch
Not a fan of any of Apple’s own bands for the Apple Watch? Or maybe you just want to have a backup wristband in case your original band gets damaged? Either way, this inexpensive Apple Watch band from ULAK is worth investing in. ULAK is arguably best known for their line of smartphone cases, including cases for the iPhone 6. These bands are available in your choice of red, brown, or black. These bands are available for both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch variants.

2. Mega Tiny Corp Apple Watch Screen Protector
There are a couple of companies making Apple Watch screen protectors, including Skinomi and Klear Cut. We’re highlighting Mega Tiny Corp’s screen protector here, but it should be noted that all three screen protectors have solid warranties behind them. Mega Tiny Corp’s screen protector is bubble-free and smudge-resistant. It also comes packaged with a microfiber cleaning cloth, which is a nice perk. You get a 30-day money back guarantee with this screen protector. Plus, you know, there’s that cool robot on the package.

3. Masvoker Apple Watch Stand
This large charging stand is perfect for households with multiple iOS devices. There’s room to store and charge your Apple Watch, iPad, and two smartphones. Plus, there’s storage underneath the caddy for glasses, rings, or other small personal items. Elastic band built inside help to keep things tidy.
4. Catalyst Waterproof Apple Watch Case
One of the biggest problems with the Apple Watch is its lack of serious waterproofing. If you want to be able to wear your watch in the shower, or take it swimming, this case can make your Apple Watch that much more durable. Designed to meet MIL-SPEC 810G standards for drops, this case offers truly military grade impact protection. We also like the fact that the case doesn’t interfere with any watch features.
5. Mini Microfiber Cloth Sticker
According to Smartwatches.org, the best way to clean your smartwatch is with a touchscreen-friendly microfiber cloth. One great microfiber cleaning solution we like is this four-pack of microfiber “stickers” from Clean Screen Wizard. It’s a nice small size, which makes it great for cleaning the small screen of an Apple Watch. When you’re done with the wipe, you can stick it to the back of your other Apple devices, such as an iPad or iPhone. The microfiber square stays in place due to static cling, and it can easily be cleaned with warm water. Another option to consider would be Mimogram’s anti-bacterial screen cleaning cloths, which are a bit larger (and a bit cheaper, too).
