Realtree Affinity Bands for Apple Watches
- April 18, 2019
- By Stephanie Mallory
The Apple Watch is the most popular watch on earth and with good reason. The watch can make calls, send texts, stream music, assist with your fitness goals and much more. Those who now have the Apple smartwatch on their wrists can give it an outdoors look with one of Affinity Bands’ new Realtree Apple watch bands. Realtree Affinity Bands come in a variety of styles and sizes to suit the outdoorsman or woman’s personal preferences.
Affinity Bands history dates back to the mid 70's when it began making jewelry during the turquoise fashion boom. Over the years it expanded to include and then focus on fine jewelry manufacturing with several retail stores throughout southeastern Michigan. In 2008, Affinity Bands saw licensed jewelry as an undeserved opportunity, and with great determination, obtained its first collegiate licenses. Always looking for opportunity, Affinity Bands followed Apple’s launch of the smart watch in 2015 and merged its college licenses with the accessory bands category. This became a core addition to Affinity’s on-demand business model. The success of the college Apple watch bands inspired the look for additional brands that would be a good fit for this project.
We conducted several focus groups to determine the most popular sports and lifestyle brands that might work well on our bands. Realtree was among the most requested brands because of the popularity of camo and Realtree is by far the leader in this space. The initial trials and testing took almost a year to perfect and the result is the Realtree Edge Apple watch band and Realtree Pink camo. In most cases cross branding doesn't make sense, however, Realtree is an exception. We have enjoyed a warm reception to co-branding Realtree with some of the leading sports brands in the U.S. and we are on track for several high profile co-branded product releases this year.
