Specifically designed for sports that require wrist gear like weightlifting, rock climbing, boxing, and Kettlebell training, ans well as CrossFit, the ActionSleeve protects the Apple Watch, and keeps it out of the way, and securely holds it in place even during vigorous workouts.

The ActionSleeve ArmBand is the world’s first Apple Watch armband that works with both Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 1. The armband sports a smooth and low-profile design along with two optional colors that allows it to match different senses of style.
Meanwhile, it comes in three different sizes, and by adjusting the length with Integrated Velcro, the armband delivers a personalized fit for every user.
