The Apple Watch isn't out yet, but manufacturers are falling over themselves to come out with accessories for Apple's newest product.
There are a lot of accessories out there. Many are cool, while some feel like lame cash grabs. If you want to make your Apple Watch stand out from the rest, you can either send crazy money on the Edition version, or customize it with some accessories. Here are some of the cool accessories that I've come across that you can use to do just that.
A word of warning: Some of these products are seeking crowdfunding dollars in order to turn the idea into reality. While most crowdfunding projects go without a hitch and people who paid their money get what they were promised, some projects do end in failure. With that in mind I want to make it clear that I'm not endorsing any such projects. My advice is to wait for products to come to market before parting with your money. However, if you're happy with the idea of crowdfunding, then feel free to become a backer, just be aware of the risks.
With that out of the way, let's take a look some of the best Apple Watch accessories.
