The Reserve Strap is a third-party Apple Watch strap that prolongs the battery life of the watch. The strap charges the phone through inductive charging. It can prolong the battery life by up to 125%. However, in recent WatchOS releases, Apple made the decision to remove all functionality from Apple Watch’s accessory port thereby blocking Reserve Strap’s ability to charge the Apple Watch. This was a deviation from how the port functioned in all previous WatchOS releases and appears to have been a deliberate effort to block development of third party smart bands. But this may be useful considering Apple continues to run old versions of WatchOS on their in-store kiosks in order to utilize the functionality of the accessory port.

5. Nomad Pod ($24.49)
