Armband for Apple Watch

Designed for Apple Watch 38mm
A Solution for Every Athlete
Thinking beyond the wrist
The Apple Watch is the most advanced health & fitness device ever, but the wrist is not always the perfect place to wear it. When protective sports gear and full wrist mobility are required the use of Apple Watch may be hindered or impossible. Enter ActionSleeve. ActionSleeve straps your Apple Watch to your upper arm or bicep - off your wrist - but still fully viewable and controllable. ActionSleeve's outer frame adds protection from nicks and dings and with tighter, more consistent skin contact, it can even improve heart rate monitoring. ActionSleeve gives you a whole new way to utilize Apple Watch - beyond the wrist.
How it works? Quite well
Ever change out your Apple Watch band? Perhaps you're already switching from your leather band to your sport band each time you hit the gym. Using ActionSleeve is just as simple: (1) remove your current Apple Watch band, (2) push the Apple Watch body into the soft frame of ActionSleeve and (3) strap ActionSleeve on and go. inline image Your screen, crown and button remain fully accessible and functional. The best part? With tight and consistent skin contact, the heart rate monitor might even work better!
Never miss a heartbeat
ActionSleeve can actually improve Apple Watch's heart rate tracking. How? When you flex your wrist or your watch band isn't tight enough, it can cause inconsistent readings or drop outs. ActionSleeve holds Apple Watch tightly and securely to your upper arm - delivering more consistent skin contact and more accurate heart rate tracking. If you're serious about training or you've had trouble with the Apple Watch heart rate monitor in the past, ActionSleeve might just be the ticker-counting ticket you're looking for.
Out of harm's way, but not out of reach
The silicone bumper on ActionSleeve protects your Apple Watch and securely holds it during the most vigorous training regimens. Recessed inside ActionSleeve the Apple Watch face is protected during even the toughest workouts. Strapped safely on your bicep, it's also within easy reach to start your workout and track your progress. Switching apps, pausing a workout or setting a timer is as easy as can be. Add bluetooth headphones, and it's like running with your favorite iPod armband all over again.
Maybe it's not all in the wrist
There are so many different sports and workouts, and some just aren't 'wrist-watch friendly'. Kickboxing is a great high-energy workout but the gloves completely cover your wrist. Weight lifting, Kettlebell training and CrossFit often require you to tape up & protect your wrists, so AppleWatch is a no-go. You don't want to go to the gym and take off your Apple Watch, missing out on all that great tracking and training data. With ActionSleeve, you can simply slide off your Watch bands, pop Apple Watch into the padded bumper and go! Your Apple Watch is safely off your wrist, but still part of the action.
