Undoubtedly, silicon bands do not portray the 'business look' that usually accompanies metal bands or leather bands. Be it an analog watch or a smartwatch, metal bands have the business look and are perfect for meetings or any formal events, and the same holds for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 as well.
There are a dime a dozen metal bands out there, all thanks to the surge in third-party bands. These bands not only look premium but also are durable and comfortable to wear in the long run.
The best part is that over the years, Samsung has managed to keep the same lug sizes for their Galaxy Watches, and it's no different for the new Galaxy Watch 3. Both the 41mm variant and the 45mm variant employ the typical 22mm or 20mm band sizes, respectively.
Read on to know about some of the best metal bands that you can buy for your Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatch. But before that,
With its eye-catching combination of silver and black metal, the Fintie Stainless Steel suits the black and silver variant of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. It looks stylish and is dependable. Also, you do not have to worry about the band snapping off midway through your meetings.
It comes with Spring Bars, which are quite simple to fix. All you need to do is pull back the bar's spring slightly, place the band in the lug, and release it. Simple, see.
And that's not all. Fintie even ships a link removal tool, which (you guessed it right!) aids you in removing the links should the band be big for your wrist. Note that using the link removal tool requires finesse and may prove to be a bit difficult for first-time users.
Other than that, it's comfortable to wear. The band doesn't dig into your skin, nor does it snag on in clothes. Plus, the standard watch-like buckle makes it easy to take it off/on.
The Fintie Stainless Steel Metal band is comfortable to wear. However, it's designed for occasional wear and is not one that you'd use for long-term wear or regular usage since the color tends to wear off in the long run.
If you are looking to add a little feminine touch to your Galaxy Watch 3, the Joyozy D-Link Band is the one you should take a peep at. This is a simple band with D-links that adds both class and elegance to your smartwatch. They are available in several cool colors that will sit well with your watch's original color. For example, the rose gold will complement the Mystic Gold variant.
It's comfortable to wear, and ample ventilation means you will have minimal sweat getting trapped inside the band.
Thanks to its looks design, and more importantly, its comfort level, this band has received a fair number of positive reviews on Amazon.
It is available in several colors, and the black band looks quite rad. This band will fit only the 41mm Galaxy Watch variant.
Conventional watch bands always look like they mean business, and the Berfine watch band is no different. It's neither too heavy nor too light, making it comfortable to wear even for long durations. And the watch-like clasp is the cherry on top. The material is durable and can take its share of abuse.
The material also resists scratches and scuff marks. Of course, you will have to do your bit as well. More importantly, the color stays on. Several users on Amazon have backed that.
Out of the 500+ reviews on Amazon, it has amassed an average user rating of 4.4-stars out of 5. Fakespot estimates that around 80% of the user reviews are trustworthy and reliable.
It's available in both the sizes of 20mm and 22mm, thus apt for the 41mm and 45mm variant. Note that the link removal tool takes a bit of time to get used to. If this will be your first time using it, you might find the directions small and illegible. Thankfully, you can easily access online.
Another set of bands that bears a strong resemblance to the above is the one by Fullmosa. These sport similar closely-linked metal links that give off a professional vibe. The belt looks great and is super comfortable to wear at the same time, thanks to its lightweight nature.
The Fullmosa Quick Release Watch Bands are quite popular on Amazon, and so far, they have seen more than 4,500 user reviews on Amazon. The best thing is that they are available in various sizes, making them best for several types of watches—both analog and smart.
However, note that the colored variant tends to lose the color over time, especially if you wear it daily.
Another metal band that pairs beautifully with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is the Koreda band. The stainless steel mesh gives an almost fabric look and the best thing is that it's equally soft and flexible. Thanks to the mesh's ventilation, you do not have to worry about sweat accumulating under the band. More importantly, the magnetic strap means you do not have to fret about the fit. All you need to do is pull the strap tight against your wrist and snap it shut.
It looks nice and beautiful, and the softness of the strap adds to the comfort quotient.
Metal mesh bands walk the fine line between casual and formal, and this gives you the advantage of wearing your smartwatch to either occasion. It's not too flashy and this is a huge plus.
The Koreda band is available in 20mm and 22mm sizes and is compatible with both the variants of the Galaxy Watch. It has earned its fair share of reviews on Amazon, and as per Fakespot's estimates, around 80% of those are quality reviews.
If you want to transform your smartwatch into a handsome piece of fashion accessory, then you can't go wrong with the TRUMiRR Stainless Steel Watchband. This one has dual color tones. While the links at the edges have a metallic look, the middle ones have a resin-like texture, which adds to the strap's looks.
On top of that, you'll find a dependable watch-like strap. It's comfortable to wear and you can take off the links at home to adjust the length as per your wrist's width.
The TRUMiRR bands have a width of 22mm and will suit the larger variants of the Galaxy Watches.
So, these were some of the best metal bands that you can get for your new Galaxy Watch 3 at an affordable price. Do note to double-check the size and length of the band before you click on the buy button.
If you are one who loves to stay active, metal bands may not be a sound investment. In such a case, you can opt for a durable Nylon band like the Fintie Nylon bands.
