The Lowry Leather Cuff for Apple Watch by Pad & Quill is a unique approach to a wrist band for the Apple Watch. I don't think this watch band is very attractive, I personally think the raw organic leather look is not a compliment to the sleek Apple Watch. It boasts being more "masculine", however, from what I can see Pad & Quill tries to achieve this by creating a thicker, more rough leather cuff. Thicker does not mean more masculine..
Pas & Quill does use high quality materials, the leather is soft despite looking rough. However, as someone with a smaller wrist, the circumference for the Lowry Leather Cuff for Apple Watch is awkward. It's definitely suited more for someone with a bigger wrist.
For the colors, I definitely liked the darker ones rather than the lighter leather finish.The band itself has a cutout on the back of the Cuff to prevent obstruction of the heart rate sensor for the Apple Watch. I suppose if this was covered, the leather cuff would be pretty useless.
Personally, I feel like the Lowry Cuff stands out too much, and is rather cumbersome as a companion to the Apple Watch. I definitely wouldn't recommend it over competitors. However, if anyone does like the look of the Lowry Leather Cuff for Apple Watch, be sure to check out the source link up above! I just think this band isn't for me, but it may be for you!
- Pad & Quill's well-crafted materials.
- Solid option for those okay with its size.
- Easy to take on and off from Apple Watch casing.
- Doesn't obstruct Apple Watch sensors.
- Oversized form factor not for everyone.
- Thick clasping mechanism.
- Inconvenient daily wear.
- Peculiar sizing.
Unfortuantely, I wouldn't recommend this as an alternative over other wrist bands. It's pricey and very awkward.
