Nomad launches limited-edition Apple Watch sports band and iPhone sports case in radiant red [Hands-on]

Nomad Limited Edition Nightwatch Red Experience

Nomad recently launched its latest limited edition Apple Watch bands and iPhone cases. The company says the most requested color by customers is “Night Watch Red,” and I think the Nomad fits that color perfectly. Learn more about the rich red finish of Nomad’s popular Apple Watch Sport Band and iPhone Sport Case.

Like the standard Nomad Apple Watch Sport Band and iPhone Sport Case, this new limited-edition release features the same stunning design and features, but in a sleek Night Watch Red colorway.

I’m not usually drawn to red when it comes to accessories like this, but Nomad changed my mind. Nightwatch Red is truly rich and beautiful.

The specifications of both accessories are as follows: Let’s take a look at our thoughts for yourself below.

Nomad’s Night Watch Red Experience

Apple Watch Sports Band

Starting with the sports band – I’ve been using it with my Apple Watch Ultra. I think the rich, vibrant red complements the titanium and orange nicely. But I also think it would work well with a variety of Apple Watch finishes.

The Sport Band has a matte finish and, like the standard model, offers a very comfortable fit with great features such as internal ventilation channels and secure rectangular locking pins.

Nomad iPhone Sports Case

Like Nomad’s modern leather iPhone cases, we love the sleek design of this sports case, which offers protection from an 8-foot drop.

Nomad features high-quality details such as aluminum buttons including action buttons and curved edges for ease of use.

The back of the sports case has a glossy finish, but the edges feature black rubber grippers for sturdy handling. Other niceties include a generous cutout for the USB-C port to fit all your cables, and a raised edge around the camera system for excellent protection.

One downside to the Sports Case’s glossy finish compared to Nomad’s Modern Leather case is that it tends to stain a bit. But the good thing is that it’s easy to wipe off.

Nomad Night Watch Red Wrap Up

If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your Apple Watch or iPhone, I highly recommend both of these products.

Due to high-quality materials and construction, both the Nomad Sports Band and iPhone Sports Case are durable and very comfortable to hold in your hand or on your wrist.

Get your hands on Night Watch Red, especially during its limited edition release. You can now purchase the iPhone Sports Case and Apple Watch Sports Band for $50/$60 each from Nomad.
