Business cards are quickly becoming outdated, yet exchanging numbers often feels too intimate for a potential business acquaintance. Linq solves this problem by bringing NFC tap-to-share technology directly to your wrist. How does it work? You create a customizable webpage with your credentials, websites, contact info, and anything else you’d like to share with a business connection. Any time you wear the waterproof Linq Apple Watch band, you can quickly share your page with 95 percent of smartphone users in a single tap.

Does the Apple Watch have a camera? Year after year, the answer is still no. Wristcam is the ideal solution, bringing two cameras to your wrist at no expense to the size or battery life of the Apple Watch itself. This unique band takes 4K photos and 1080P HD videos via its 8MP World-Facing and 2MP Self-Facing cameras. Control them easily using pre-set Siri voice commands for a hands-free experience. A water resistance rating of IP68 opens up a world of underwater photos and videography. Plus, the 8 GB of storage can hold 2,000 photos or 1 hour of video.

Nomad Modern Band ($69.95)

Like a fine wine or cheese, Nomad’s Horween leather improves over time as it interacts with the elements around it, changing in color, sheen, and texture. Nomad Apple Watch bands are known for their high-quality materials and luxurious styles. If leather is not your jam, Nomad also offers a wide selection of bands made of metal and rubber. Not only does Nomad make comfortable and elegant bands, but they even sell matching cases for your iPhone, AirTags, and iPad for the perfectly coordinated look. Before you order one, make sure you know which Apple Watch band size you need!

i.VALUX Portable Wireless Charger ($19.99)

Low-battery anxiety is real, and with the Apple Watch being such an essential part of many users’ lives, it is natural that staying charged is a priority. The portable wireless charger by i.VALUX is a dream come true, offering an emergency charge in a nightmare scenario. The 1,000mAh lithium-ion battery is compact and lightweight, the perfect keychain! It may be small, but it can fully charge your watch in three to four hours.
