Nomad launches new waterproof leather bands for Apple Watch

Our good friends over at Nomad announced a new product on Wednesday. It’s called Active Strap, and it’s a sharp-looking leather band for Apple Watch that is both breathable and waterproof. So you can go from the gym to the boardroom, without having to switch out your watch band.

More specifically, the Active Strap is made with hydrophobic leather and ventilation channels. The design is based on Nomad’s Modern Strap, and they were able to recreate it using waterproof Heinen leather from Germany. And of course it still has the custom stainless steel lugs and and buckle. Nomad told us that they’ve been field-testing the Strap for over a year now, and they’ve been on countless marathons and surf trips, and all of them still look great.

The Active Strap is available today for $70. It comes in black with dark hardware and Mocha brown with silver hardware.
