    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Southern Straps to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a high-quality leather or nylon watch band for the Apple Watch.

    Southern Straps has a wide selection of nylon Apple Watch bands, which are similar in style and design to the Woven Nylon bands that Apple sells, but in unique color combinations. Bands are available in one, two, or three colors, and each comes equipped with lugs to match gold, silver, and black Apple Watch models.

    All of the nylon bands from Southern Straps are made from a single piece of nylon that's been carefully doubled over, sealed, and stitched for an ultra durable construction that's still comfortable on the wrist. A buckle that matches the lugs is included with each band to keep it tight on the wrist.

    The nylon bands, which are all priced at $35, are available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes and are able to fit nearly all wrist sizes, from 14 to 25cm.

    Southern Strap's leather bands are a bit more expensive at $75, but each one is made from a single piece of full-grain Italian leather that's been vegetable dyed for a rich color that will gain a unique patina with wear.

    The leather straps, available in black or brown, are hand stitched with a durable wax cord in San Francisco. Like the woven bands, the leather bands are available for 38 and 42mm Apple Watch models to fit wrists sized 14cm to 25cm, with several lug colors available.

    Each Southern Strap leather and nylon band is equipped with pegged spring bars to make it easier to swap out your watch band or clean it. Using this system, bands can be taken apart and rebuilt in just a few seconds. Woven bands have a lifetime warranty, while leather bands have a two-year warranty.

    I wear a Southern Strap in Nylon almost daily. Excellent quality, just a little stiff until you break it in.

    You should really put "US/CA Giveaway" in the title. You realise there's more countries in the world, right?

    Any watch band over $20 is overpriced.
