Today in Gear: The Leather Strap Your Apple Watch Needs, a Fun Detail on the Upcoming Hummer & More

The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.


Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.

Finding the right accessories for your much-loved Apple devices can be tough. There’s an endless list of brands and products to choose from. But it’s near impossible to find quality leather accessories for your tech, especially ones that look and feel incredibly luxurious. That’s what sparked the birth of Bullstrap — a company that’s committed to making the best leather tech accessories you could hope to own. Bullstrap is the brainchild of a Florida-based duo and got its start by developing premium Apple Watch straps. The creators were frustrated with the lack of quality leather accessories in the market, so they developed a strap that was sourced from high-grade leather hydes and crafted with minimal and practical designs. Today, Bullstrap has expanded past Apple Watch straps and has developed iPhone and Airpods cases, wallets, backpacks and more. So whether you’re looking to upgrade your tech accessories or looking to treat yourself, Bullstrap has something for everyone.
