Swim in Style: Pick the Best Apple Watch Band for Swimming

If you’re a swimmer or a triathlete, Apple watches are your best bet as a fitness tracker. They have dedicated swimming workout modes, helping you train smart.

The challenge is looking for a durable yet comfortable Apple Watch band for swimming. Some bands may look beautiful but they break off after barely a few months of use.

So, we decided to take the plunge and list the best Apple Watch bands for swimming. From a freestyle across open water to laps in a pool, these bands are ready for a swim or workout with you!

By the end of this guide, let’s pick the winner based on these parameters: contact with water, comfortable fit, durability, and price. Alrighty, let’s get right into it.

About Apple Watch Water Resistance

Apple Watches are waterproof. You can wear one when swimming as it is water-resistant up to 50m (since the Apple Watch Series 2). The Apple Watch Ultra and later have an impressive water resistance of up to 100m.

It can track your strokes, heart rate, and pace and gives you a reminder on your first and second laps.

If you have an Apple Watch Series 2 and later, you can use it for shallow-water activities, like swimming in the ocean or pool. If you have an Apple Watch Ultra or later, you can wear it while scuba diving up to 40 meters (130 feet) and doing other activities, like showering and swimming.

However, not all Apple Watch bands are designed for water use. Here are some Apple Watch bands that can withstand the rigors of swimming.
