Easy to clean and quick to dry, the Bonetto Cinturini rubber strap is one that you can depend on and is suitable for use with an Apple watch as seen here.
Hirsch Ayrton Performance Strap
We have talked a lot about how good the Hirsch Performance range is so it should not come as a surprise to see two of them featured in this post. The first of the two is the Hirsch Ayrton which draws its inspiration from the world of fast cars. It has the unmistakable hallmark of all Hirsch Performance watch straps which is the breathable natural rubber core. This award winning design is one of the most comfortable watch straps on the market and comes highly recommended by us and your fellow watch enthusiasts. For this strap, we imagined that it might thrive around a golf course where the wearer needs to be laser focused on their round and not worried about their watch strap failing or being uncomfortable.
Hirsch Robby Performance Strap
The second of the Hirsch Performance watch straps featured in this post is the super popular Robby. Using the same blueprint as the Ayrton but with a sailcloth like effect on the topside, the Robby will push to the limit with you every step of the way.
ISOfrane Rubber Dive Strap
The ISOfrane name has adorned some of the most iconic dive watches ever made but that is not to say that they can be used exclusively for diving. Despite the fact that it is the dive strap of choice for the pros, the ISOfrane straps are also ideal for use with activity watches thanks to the precisely cut out holes that run down the spine of the strap making it breathable. This strap is designed to withstand some serious punishment out at sea so it is more than capable of hitting an exercise class with you.
Canvas Watch Strap with Quick-Release
The most accessible of the five options in this post, our Quick-Release Canvas watch straps are great all rounders. It's rugged appearance gives it a real adventure ready look that also offers good levels of comfort thanks to the many tightly positioned pin holes that you can chose from. These straps do well in water and dry fairly quickly too.
