Twelve South, an innovative Apple accessories designer, today introduces the ActionBand, a machine-washable wristband that provides a wrist-friendly way to workout with the Apple Watch. Made from flexible terry cotton, the ActionBand comfortably hugs the wrist, absorbing sweat and keeping the user and the watch dry while they work to close their activity/fitness rings. ActionBand can also be comfortably worn on the forearm or bicep, ideal for activities that involve the wrist.

Unlike the traditional Apple Watch band, the ActionBand has a protective frame to keep the Apple Watch safe from knocks and scratches while exercising. Comfortable to wear, the ActionBand keeps the device securely pressed against the user’s skin, making it easy to track their progress and providing full access to the Digital Crown and Side Button. Switching to the ActionBand for a workout will also mean that a user’s day-to-day Apple Watch band will stay clean and dry.

The ActionBand comes with a pair of machine-washable wristbands in the box, one with an Apple Watch frame, one without. Thanks to a blend of Lycra, ActionBand has enough stretch in it to position on the forearm, giving users the option to move the Apple Watch off the wrist if they prefer. Its thick cotton material soaks up sweat, keeping hands dry and making it easier to keep a firm grip on barbells, free weights, cardio equipment or a tennis racquet.

The ActionBand is available now for £24.99 from Amazon.co.uk. It is currently compatible with Apple Watch Series 4, 5, 6 & SE (both 40mm & 44mm) with Series 7 compatibility coming soon.
