At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Griffin Technology (www.GriffinTechnology.com) unveiled additions to its Apple Watch accessories line.
Griffin’s Travel Power Bank ($69.99) is a compact battery with a Apple Watch charger. With 800 mAh of power, the portable battery purportedly delivers up to four four full charges for Apple’s smartwatch before it needs recharging via the included micro-USB cable. The Travel Power Bank (pictured) will be available in the second quarter of the year and will come with an attached keyring to clip it to a set of keys, a hook or carabiner.
The Uptown Leather Band ($59.99) is a double-wrap band that complements all 38mm Apple Watch versions. It combines colored genuine leather bands with coordinating metal buckle detailing in gold, silver or rose gold. A metal buckle and floating keeper loops adjust to fit wrists measuring 5.1 to 7 inches, while the stainless steel lugs lock securely in place on the Apple Watch. The Uptown Leather Band will be available in toffee/gold, black/silver, ecru/rose gold or seafoam/silver in the third quarter of the year.
Also due in the third quarter is the Trainer Watch Band ($39.99). The sweat-proof, silicone band is secured with a smooth, brushed stainless steel buckle with a wide tongue. Stainless steel lugs lock securely in place on the watch. Adjustable to fit wrists from 5.9 to 8.6 inches, the Trainer Watch Band uses a notched post at the end of the band to secure the extra length and provide additional security during vigorous activity like long runs, hiking or the gym. It will be compatible with all 42mm Apple Watch versions and will be available in black, white, red or blue.
