For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Ampere to offer MacRumors readers an ultimate Apple Watch accessory bundle, which will include an Apple Watch Legend Band, the Unravel Triple Wireless Charger, an Apple Watch Charging Dongle and Stand, and an 18W USB-C Car Charging Adapter.

Our ultimate Apple Watch accessory giveaway is celebrating the launch of Ampere's new Legend Band for the Apple Watch. Priced at $70, the Legend Band is a slim, attractive black leather strap that has a bright blue interior accent and highlight stitching in black or colorful teal and pink variants.

Made from German leather, the Legend Band has been specially treated to make it water and sweat resistant so it can be comfortably worn all day long and for any activity. The leather will age over time and take on a unique patina that will be different for each wearer.

The Legend Band has a traditional buckle closure and the design matches any of the available Apple Watch colors. It is available in 42 or 44mm size options, so it will fit Apple's larger Apple Watches. It is compatible with all Apple Watch models, from the Series 1 to the Series 6 and SE.

Along with the Legend Band, the accessory bundle also includes the Unravel Apple Watch+ charger, which is a wireless charging station designed for Apple devices. It features two 10W wireless charging coils for Apple's iPhones and AirPods, along with a built-in Apple Watch charging puck for the Apple Watch.

The Unravel AW+ has a neat hinge design that lets it fold over itself so it's portable and ideal for travel. It's compatible with your MacBook charger, which is able to provide enough power for charging four Apple devices at once.

Ampere is also including the MFI Apple Watch Charging Dongle and Charging Stand, plus an 18W USB-C Car Charging Adapter.

The Charging Dongle and Stand is a handy little portable charger that can plug into a MacBook or any other USB-C power adapter, and when paired with the aforementioned Car Charging Adapter, it can be used in the car for a quick power boost.

Rushed in here when I saw Ampere and Giveaway in the same sentence, then realized a 3080 was not to be had making me very sad.

Still entered the giveaway though, thanks MR!

Looks like a nice giveaway. I'd give the Apple Watch-specific stuff to my wife (Garmin user here), but the other stuff would be mine :)

Apple Watch 6 w/new gold color. I wasn't sure I would like it vs. my Apple Watch 4 with the old tarnished looking gold color. I have always used the mesh metal bands that are less bulky looking on my scrawny paws. This new one is not as bright as it appears in the advertisements, and I like that. Trivia: The dial color is actually white, but the 12 Max photo distorts to a bluish tone.

I have this from their kickstarter and would not recommend to anyone unless they win the giveaway.

The company has poor operations. The apple watch part of my charger does a continued cycle, and does not charge to 100%. It also gets super hot. If I could do it all over again, I would have gotten the nomad.

Thanks for chiming in. Did the company offer to replace the product?

No. and they were very unresponsive, despite multiple attempts to reach them. If you looked at their kickstarter you could see many many unhappy people. I think when you are backing a project you should expect delays and growing pains, but they were pushing out the next product without adequately addressing the first. Was really a dissatisfier. My suspicion is this giveaway will give them free press. I just want to provide my experience with the company and the product just in case I can help prevent someone from having the same issues I did. My charger is a paperweight.

Thank you very much for sharing your experience, Peabody.

I’m sure it must have been said before … but what about a competition for all your loyal fans in the U.K. (and other countries … but U.K. next 😜 )

Why is it still only US? You have no European readers???
There's a thread about it if you read the full description from MR's post.

In essence...
They say: 'International law'
Reality: 'MR got a threat from Qubec because the rules of the giveaway weren't in French (seriously... a niche issue, outside MR's jurisdiction). As a result, they canned all international giveaways rather than doing a Steve Jobs and responding with "Sosumi"'

I must admit that, to a non-Canadian anyway, some of the stuff Quebec requires (either by statute, or simply forces due to its political muscle within the country) comes across as absurdist comedy.

Yeah I've never lived there so don't get it. Guessing it means a lot to those with a cultural connection. However, it does smell of a hermit state within an English speaking country (with the British queen on its money...etc) trying very hard to be French. I mean, even France is okay with people sending its people gifts in English.
