The Galaxy Watch 4 is a versatile smartwatch and can be worn on any occasion, be it a casual night out with friends or a formal dinner with your office colleges. And when you have to often wear this watch for formal occasions, leather is the way to go forward. The Galaxy Watch 4 employs straps with easy-to-use Quick Release pins. And as you may have expected, there are quite a few leather straps available for the Galaxy Watch 4. The best part is that both variants of the Galaxy Watch 4 use 20mm watch straps.
These straps are easy to remove and install. Besides that, they are readily available in the market.
So if you are looking to switch the strap on your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 for a more formal strap, here are our recommendations for the best straps out there. But before that,
The Sankel leather strap is simple and affordable. The strap is neither too thin nor too fat, which makes it ideal for all genders. It packs a decent look and cut for its price, and several people have voiced this as part of their reviews.
The installation process is straightforward, and you just need to pull the Quick Release pins inwards and fix them to the watch lugs. It has the conventional watch buckle coupled with two extra leather loops to hold the extra length of the strap.
So far, this strap has been received well by its user base, praising its durability, looks, and easy installation process.
If you want the feel of real leather, you should check out the leather band by Wocci. The highlight of these straps is the contrasting stitches on the seams, giving it an edge over the others. The strap looks great and is comfortable to wear. The company ships many spring bars and a replacement tool to help you install it at home.
However, like most leather products, this one is a little stiff out-of-the-box and needs some time to settle and develop the bends in the right places. During this time, the leather strap may feel a little stiff but will soften over time.
If you are okay with these limitations, then the Wocci leather strap is a good pick.
The NewWay leather strap is another affordable leather strap for the Galaxy Watch 4. It is comfortable to wear and is not stiff like its counterparts above. Moreover, it also comes with contrasting stitches on either side of the strap.
For the price, the quality is at par, and several users have backed this fact. At the same time, it's a stunner, all thanks to the combination of tan leather and white stitches.
It's not the most durable product out there. And if you often brush your wrist against door frames or table edges, you may want to skip this one.
The highlight of the Maxjoy watch band is its hybrid nature. The insides of this band are layered with silicone, while the outer has a leather finish. Naturally, this gives the strap (and the watch) a sharp look.
The silicone layer adds a better grip and is better suited to deal with sweat. If you must know, real leather straps tend to sweat and make your wrist sweaty and itchy, especially in humid weather.
The Maxjoy leather strap has been received well by its user base, with people applauding it for its sharp look, comfort, and easy installation process.
If you want to give your watch a feminine touch, it's time you bought the leather straps by Wristology. Compared to the standard straps, it's thin and slim and gives an elegant touch to your wrists. And the light color tone is the cherry on top.
It's comfortable to wear. However, some users have reported the straps being a little longer than usual. And if you have a smaller wrist, we'd advise you to tread with caution.
Nonetheless, these have received good feedback from its users for its look. The buckle is painted in rose gold which further adds to the look.
Last but not least, we have the leather watch strap from Berfine. The highlight of this strap is its retro look. The colors are rich and bring real-leather vibes to the table. And in the long run, it lightens and develops a unique patina. For the price, you get a good quality strap, and that's the best part.
The Berfine watch strap has amassed a decent amount of positive reviews with time. People like its rich dark look and its durability. It's a little pricier than its counterparts above, but the durability factor makes it a clear winner.
It's available in 6 colors, and we think that the Olive Green variant looks rather cool.

But at the end of the day, these straps are not the best fit if you often track your gym workouts with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. They are good for formal occasions or office wear. And when you do buy one of these straps, do make it a point to wipe the insides of the straps as often as you can.
