Paranoid about losing your pricey Apple AirPods? San Diego-based accessory maker Elago wants to help.
The company just unveiled a handy yet slightly silly-looking AirPods holder that slides onto your Apple Watch band, so you can keep your wireless headphones close by at all times. The Elago AirPods Wrist Fit is compatible with “most” Apple Watch straps.
“Made from premium silicone, your AirPods will be snug and secure,” Elago says. “Material will not stretch of deform over time giving you the peace of mind to keep going.”
Check out the company’s promotional Instagram video below.
Interested? The Elago AirPods Wrist Fit is available on Amazon now for $ 14.99, which seems like a lot for a small piece of silicone. But, if it keeps your $ 159 AirPods from going missing, it might be $ 15 well spent.
AirPods earned a “good” rating in PCMag’s review; we praised their “clear audio performance” and liked the fact that their carrying case doubles as a backup battery.
“From an audio standpoint, the AirPods offer decent bass response and crisp, clear highs, but would greatly benefit from creating an in-canal seal like most earphones do,” we wrote. “Instead, you hear the outside world and get less low end than you might otherwise.”
Meanwhile, the latest Apple Watch earned an “excellent” review, garnering high marks for its built-in cellular connectivity and fitness features.
“It’s quite expensive at $ 399 for the cellular model, and battery life takes a big hit when using LTE,” we wrote. “But it’s one of the best attempts at a truly standalone smartwatch we’ve seen if you’re willing to deal with those trade-offs.”
