If you've ever owned an Apple watch band, you know that they can get severely discolored over time. The majority of the users out there don't like the idea of having a discolored band and have tried numerous ways to clean it up. But here's the thing... trying to salvage a discolored band is mostly a waste of time — it just doesn't work out.
The discoloration is an issue that many people have with their Apple watch bands. Some factors which may cause discoloration include the following:
That said, there are some things you can do to prolong the life and keep your band looking awesome for as long as possible.
We recommend that you clean your Apple Watch band once a week at most to keep it clean and looking great. This will help maintain its appearance over time without degrading its quality or durability. Although most Apple Watch bands can be cleaned with a moist cloth, you'll want to know how to clean your watch band properly.
When it comes to cleaning your Apple Watch band, use a nonabrasive cloth and plain water or a small amount of mild soap diluted in warm water to wipe down both sides of the band. You can also use a lint-free cloth (like an old T-shirt) that has been dampened with plain tap water; this will help you remove any dirt or grime without damaging the finish on your watch band. Generally speaking, the amount of water and/or soap that can be used will largely depend on the material that the band is made of.
Be sure to dry your Apple Watch band thoroughly. You can air-dry overnight, preferably in a warm, dry spot, or use a soft towel before putting them back together again. If necessary, you can use a nonabrasive, lint-free cloth to dry the inside of the band.
However, over time, if the discoloration on your band continues to worsen, you may want to consider your second option – get an affordable replacement band.
Apple says that this discoloration is normal and it doesn't affect your watch's performance. It's not a defect, but it is a cosmetic issue. You can simply accept the fact that your watch band looks like an old pair of shoes and move on with your life, or you can get affordable replacement bands from Epic Watch Bands.
