Technology is such a vital part of everyday life that it has taken over what used to be regular accessories like the watch, turning them into full-fledged gadgets. Today, tech wearables are no longer just accessories but often the highlight of a person’s outfit. With the introduction of smartwatches, the merging of tech and style has rested on the wrist, literally, at least for now.

What better way is there to express style within this reality than by accessorizing the Apple Watch with quality, fashionable bands? Hoco, a global brand that develops simple and practical digital spare parts with a quality-first mindset, offers today’s generation of stylish techies a chance to express themselves and coordinate their Apple Watch with their mood, without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality.


Together with premier Apple partner Power Mac Center, Hoco features three classic looks from its collection of watchbands made from premium materials ─ leather, stainless steel, and metal.

Leather is as classic as it gets. It transcends fads and endures fashion revolutions season after season. Leather accessories command respect and look good on both men and women. The material is tough and extremely durable, making it a practical investment that will survive several wears and tears.

As a watchband, leather lends an instant air of sophistication to the wearer. Use it for formal occasions that call for business suits or sharp casual attire, or transition effortlessly to a jeans-and-shirt combo if you need to. Leather isn’t flashy but will certainly draw compliments for its subtle elegance.


For something less dressy but classy nonetheless, a stainless steel band will do the trick. Hoco has one in a Milanese loop style, which wraps around the wrist in a continuous, adjustable loop, ensuring a snug fit on anyone. It has a magnetic clasp that makes the length easy to adjust.

Manufactured from premium stainless steel materials and woven on specialized Italian machinery, the Hoco Milanese Loop Watchband is water and sweat-resistant, and does not irritate the skin or get caught in wrist hair. It was built with durability and comfort in mind, enhanced with color-preservation and anti-corrosion properties. Wear this when out and about in the city or for casual get-togethers.

A more laidback alternative, meanwhile, is the metal link watchband. It is fancy enough to use every day at work or to a nice dinner. Hoco’s Metal Watchband is made from quality stainless material and has a doubled pressed design that ensures the buckle does not open accidentally.

“Hoco watchbands are the perfect embodiment of the marriage of tech and style. The designs and colors are universally flattering and transform a monochrome look into something extraordinary,” said Power Mac Center Marketing Director Joey Alvarez.

As if claiming this distinction already, Hoco Apple Watch bands glammed up the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2017 collection of Jerome Salaya Ang. Dubbed as “Glitch,” the collection showcased modern, sleek, ultra-feminine Victorian pieces that oozed with intensity, character, and drama. Thanks to their classic appeal, the different Hoco bands stood out amidst the backdrop of lustrous, shimmery materials like cracked foil leather metallic jerseys, sequined fabric, and leatherettes.

So whether you’re looking to dress up or tone down your ensemble, you won’t go wrong with materials that never go out of style. Hoco products are exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Think Abt Tomorrow Inc. (Instagram: @thinkabttomorrowinc) and available at select Power Mac Center stores.
