Nomad just released their latest limited-edition colorway for their popular Apple Watch Sport Band. Take a look at the eye-catching new electric blue band with Apple Watch Ultra.

Expect more limited edition colors. That’s what Nomad says with the launch of the Electric Blue Sport Band available for all 42/44/45mm and 49mm Apple Watch Ultra.

It follows the launch and subsequent sale of its High Volta yellow belt earlier this year. High Volta quickly becomes unavailable, and Nomad follows suit with another bright color.

The electric blue is more flashy than what Nomad’s navy blue band sells for, but not quite as we’d expect from the name. It’s a bit more like a pale blue sky and will probably appeal to more users than something a little brighter.

The band is as wide as Apple’s Sport Band but has a rubber-like feel to it. The bottom has horizontal channels that, unlike Apple’s, allow some airflow and prevent it from sticking to your wrist during a workout.

Nomad uses custom metal hardware on its ranges. The end can snap off tightly, and a dark gray metal pin holds it in place. Easy to take off but holds up well during activities.

We’ve never had the Nomad Sport Strap come off by mistake, whether it’s while playing sports or enjoying some water activity like skiing.

Our only gripe is that all of Nomad’s sport bands are boring to put on the Apple Watch Ultra. Apple has made enough of a change to the body that it seems the band doesn’t want to slide in perfectly on the first try.

Nomad told us it helps to insert the bar halfway and then press down on the center lug pin before cranking it all the way out. In our tests, this helps tremendously.

No matter your use case, Nomad’s Sport Bands have been one of our favorites, with a comfortable fit and now an ever-changing variety of colors. They don’t come cheap, however, at more than $10 more than Apple’s own sport bands.

If you find yourself annoyed enough with the new electric blue, don’t hesitate to pick it up.
