So what do you do if they are not quite to your own particular taste – and you want products to say something about you when you use them?

Luckily for lovers of the Apple Watch, who may admire the technology but want to transform the look of the timepiece into something that’s more of a personal statement, you don’t have to compromise.

Here are just some of the top Apple Watch straps to suit any look – or personality.

The brand’s Caiman Series straps are a huge step forward for Apple Watch wearers.

As one of the biggest makers of stylish and bespoke phone cases, you would expect this brand to dominate the straps for Apple Watches as well – and it does.

There’s oodles of variety – in as many styles as the colours of the rainbow, so there’s no excuse not to accessorise.
