Pitaka Apple Watch Band Review Chromacarbon vs Carbon Fiber

Tuesday, April 16, 2024


The Pitaka Chromacarbon Band for Apple Watch is a fusion of innovative engineering and top-notch craftsmanship, embodying both practicality and style. Crafted with care as part of Pitaka's Poetry of Things Series, it is designed to seamlessly integrate with Apple Watch.

Made from a mix of Carbon Fiber and Aramid Fiber, the Chromacarbon Band is both tough and stylish. This combination doesn't just make it strong, but also gives it a sleek look. Plus, with Stainless Steel parts, it's built to last through everyday use. What's really cool about the Chromacarbon Band is that it works with every Apple Watch model out there, whether it's Series 9-1, SE, or Ultra 2/Ultra. And it doesn't stop there—it comes in different sizes to fit all case dimensions, from 42/44/45/49mm to 38/40/41mm. Plus, you can adjust the bracelet length to make it just right for you, adding that personal touch effortlessly.

Aside from looking great, the Chromacarbon Band puts comfort first. It's designed to feel super light on your wrist, so you can wear it all day, whether you're hitting the gym or just chilling at home. Plus, the magnetic clasp makes it a breeze to put on and take off, keeping it secure without any hassle.

Even though the Chromacarbon Band rocks a killer style, it's all about practicality too. Thanks to its Carbon Fiber build, it's waterproof, so you can rock it in any situation with confidence. Just remember, while it can handle a splash, it's best not to dunk it for too long because of the Stainless Steel parts. And hey, no need to worry about it messing with your Apple Watch features—this band keeps things smooth and uninterrupted.

The Chromacarbon Band from Pitaka fits seamlessly with a wide range of Apple Watch models, spanning Series 8 through 1, as well as SE, 5, 4, 3, and 2. It's available in various sizes to match different case dimensions, catering to both the 42/44/45/49mm and 38/40/41mm models. With its adjustable bracelet length, you can easily tailor the fit to your liking. Weighing just 30 grams, it's incredibly lightweight and features a smooth surface that's comfortable for extended wear. Whether you're catching some z's or tackling active tasks, its low-profile design ensures a pleasant experience throughout the day.

What sets the Chromacarbon Band apart is its magnetic spring-loaded locking clasp design, which utilizes a secure locking mechanism to keep the strap firmly in place. Magnets embedded within the straps make clasping the watch effortless and swift. Removing the strap is just as easy—simply pinch the quick-release buttons on either side of the clasp.

Another standout feature is its durability. Crafted from a combination of Carbon Fiber and Aramid Fiber, the Chromacarbon Band not only boasts toughness but also offers water resistance, though it's not ideal for water-related activities. Pitaka advises against prolonged water immersion due to the presence of Stainless Steel components within the band.

The second Pitaka watch band seen pictured, it's the Carbon Fiber Watch Band Modern model. It is similar to the Chromacarbon Band in weight and design but the Carbon Fiber Watch Band is crafted entirely from carbon fiber. Like the Chromacarbon Band, the Carbon Fiber Watch Band is also compatible with all Apple Watch models and comes in sizes suitable for different case dimensions. The Carbon Fiber Watch Band also features a magnetic clasp for secure closure.
