Nomad has released Ultra Orange, a limited edition collection that includes an Apple Watch sport band and a rugged case for the iPhone 14 Pro models.
The Apple Watch Ultra starts shipping to customers on Friday, September 23, and Nomad’s Sport Band may be the perfect companion. It, and the iPhone 14 Pro case of these products are available in a few colors — only the Ultra Orange variant is limited edition.
The Sport Band is 100% waterproof and is made out of FKM fluoroelastomer rubber, a class of synthetic rubber designed to work in high temperatures and is resistant to oils. It’s also antimicrobial and can be easily sanitized with soap and water.
When connected to an Apple Watch, the company says that it can resist five to twenty kilogram-force (kgf) of lateral slide-out force. Slots in the band increase ventilation, and channels at the bottom increase breathability and flexibility.
The band has a waterproof aluminum pin and a tuck closure mechanism to keep the Apple Watch securely around a wrist. It’s designed for wrist sizes ranging from 150mm to 200mm.
This rugged case for the iPhone 14 Pro models features a polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate, a type of thermoplastic polymer.
This case offers 15 feet of drop protection with rubber bumpers and a camera ring. Polycarbonate power and volume buttons are highly tactile and textured for easy grip.
An integrated array of thin nickel-plated neodymium magnets means that the case, although rugged, supports MagSafe charging. Alignment magnets allow for horizontal or vertical orientation.
