Review: Carterjett 42mm Black Silicone Tire Tread Design Apple Watch Band
One of the great features of the Apple Watch is the ability to quickly change watch bands. In just a few moments, fashion conscious Apple Watch owners can change from a sport model band for day wear, to a more stylish band for evening wear.
The Carterjett 42mm Black Silicone Tire Tread Design Apple Watch Band is a stylish sport band, designed to replace the stock band that comes with the Apple Watch. It is installed the same way as stock bands, push the band release button and slide the old band off, then slip the Carterjett band into place.
The tire tread of the Carterjett 42mm band is an unusual design, and handsomely sets off my gold Apple Watch Sport. Its silicone construction means it is flexible, and easy to take care of. I’ve used the Carterjett band for over a week now, and haven’t yet made the move to return to my stock silicone Watch band. I’ve also received a number of compliments from others about the band.
The Carterjett band includes Apple Watch compatible adapters, so installing it takes only a few moments. The band slides and snaps securely into place, just as the original band did. The band is black, 15/16-inch wide, and 1/8-inch thick. Caterjett says the band fits wrist sizes 6 1/4 to 8 3/8 inches. I don’t think I have ultra-large wrists, but the band is only comfortable when using the last fastener hole, so keep that in mind if you do have large wrists.
One note, the original silicone band I received with the Apple Watch tended to make my wrist itch a bit. I found myself scratching my wrists subconsciously, due to the irritation. I have had no such issues with the Carterjett band.
The Carterjett 42mm Black Silicone Tire Tread Design Apple Watch Band makes for a stylish replacement band for any Apple Watch, but especially the Sport models. The band is durable, and flexible, and doesn’t cause any irritation like some bands of this type. The materials the band is made of appear to be of high quality.
At $19.95, the Carterjett band is an excellent value, and should definitely be considered by those looking to expand their Apple Watch Band collection without breaking the bank.
Price: $19.95 – Available at Amazon.com. Available with a Space Black, or Silver Stainless Steel buckle.
