The Apple Watch Milanese loop is one of the slickest straps you can put on the wearable. Unfortunately, it's also really expensive — upwards of well over $100. You don't have to break the bank to get this look. Here are some of our picks that deliver the look without getting too expensive.

Mix in some uniqueness: INTENY Milanese Loop

INTENY's Milanese Loop is very similar to our other picks, but there is one difference. Instead of the classic loop design, it adopts the design from Apple's sports band in the Milanese finish for a very distinctive look. It'll also still function the same way as the others with the magnetic clasp.

There's always Apple: Apple Watch Milanese Loop

All that being said, you may still want to go with Apple's own Milanese loop and that's completely fine.

Stand out with the Milanese Loop

The Apple Watch is one of the most customizable products Apple offers. Whether you want a different color or want to select the perfect band for you, you can do that. One of the most stylish bands you can select is the Milanese Loop, but as you can see above, it's pricey. Luckily there are tons of alternatives worth considering that deliver on various levels.

Our staff favorite is the OROBAY Milanese Loop. This sleek band adds that distinct look to your Apple Watch. It boasts all the features of a great Milanese Loop — stylish finish, stainless steel build, and a sturdy metal clasp — but best of all, it doesn't cost a fortune.

You also won't go wrong with the Seoaura Milanese Loop. It's another great Milanese Loop but it brings its own spin to the band with very vibrant color options that definitely stand out. "Colorful," in particular, is a rainbow finish that mixes all kinds of color into one package.
