The First Apple Watch Band With Custom Designs and Breathable Inner Grooves -  Groove Watch Band offers breathable grooves, comfort arch and unique designs all in one.  No more blah colored, sweaty watch bands...

UPDATE on 2/19:  Fitbit and Samsung designs just released!

You are unique. Your watch band should show it.   

Ready For Adventure Designs — From on-trend women's designs to exclusive camo licensed bands from Mossy Oak and Kryptek, to 3-Dimensional, laser-cut patterns that are not available from ANY other company. Groove Bands have the perfect watchband design for you.

Camo

Exclusively Licensed: Yep! We own the exclusive license for all watchbands for Mossy Oak and Kryptek camo patterns.  These things are sick! 

Dimension

3D and Amazing: If there is one thing we are excited about it's Dimension!  Our custom engraved designs range from bold to elegant.  New designs will be launched every other month. 

 Aspire 

Bold and Beautiful: Designs that fit your mood, your outfit, or your personality.  New designs launched every other month.   

Solid 

For those that love simplicity, Groove Solid Watch Bands are neutral so they go with most every outfit while maintaining comfort and breathability. 

The Problem:  Not All Sport Bands Breathe!


Post-Workout Rash

9.3 out of 10* people polled said their watchband gets sweaty and nasty over time.  They bought a watch to stay more active but their watch band is uncomfortable.  

*independent research by in house watchband experts

Problem Solved: Breathable Grooves and Comfort Arch 


Comfort Inner Arch - To reduce skin contact, an inner arch incorporates the Grooves.  This combination keeps skin dry and the comfortable.  

Breathable Grooves -  All Groove Watch Bands come with air grooves that allow air in and moisture out.  It's simple really!

How Groove Stacks Up To The Competition



NO BS Warranty:  It's true!  All Groove products have an unlimited lifetime warranty.  No wonder we have over 20k five star reviews. 

Uncompromising Durability:  The Groove Watch Band is ultra tough, so it will stand up to any adventure you throw at it. The non-slip, durable design will not fade in color.  

Hypoallergenic:   All non-printed bands are 100% silicone.  All printed designs are an elastomer blend with a durable graphic coating on the surface.  Both are hypoallergenic.  

Comfort Arch:  All other bands are concave and trap moisture.  Ours is convex and lessens contact with your skin.  That's a good thing :)

Breathable:  Our inner grooves allow air in and moisture out.  I know....we have said that a couple times already. 

Unique Designs:  Our customization process makes for endless design opportunities.  New designs will be launched monthly.

Why Kickstarter...again?

Kickstarter is where Groove got off to an incredible start 3 years ago and we’re so excited to honor those roots. 

The camaraderie of the Kickstarter community and the shared excitement of the new and the creative is simply astounding. It’s what inspires us to continuously innovate, so it’s only fitting that we give you all the first opportunity to experience Groove's new watch band FIRST.


To our loyal backers, whether you’ve been with us from the very beginning, you hopped on board with the Groove Rings, or you’ve found us on Kickstarter for the first time here, thank you. A million times, thank you! 

History of Groove

Peter Goodwin is the founder here at Groove. Just three years ago, he kickstarted Groove Rings from his garage in Alaska. And since then, we have been just a little bit busy. We moved our small company from our garage in Alaska to our new facility here in Nashville, TN.

We have hired over 40 people and have scoured the globe for the best materials for our products. We’ve sold over one million rings and we’re an overnight success! (Ha!) There was that three years of blood, sweat, and tears, and pain and misery...just kidding (sort of). 

Seriously guys, it’s been a wild ride and we wouldn’t change it for anything. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention and we would agree. Groove ring was born out of need just like our new Groove Watch Band.

Risks and challenges

Every Kickstarter endeavor has its risks and challenges—you just don’t have many with us! Production has already started. We’ve built the molds and machinery for our initial launch, and a portion of the money we raise here will go to fund the production of more molds and machinery so we can continue design and customize Groove Watchbands in the USA at our TN headquarters.
Production time will be our biggest challenge, as we custom design all of the Groove products at our facility. Another portion of our funding will be used to grow our Groove team to meet production demands.
Another challenge might be working with our product partners to get certain international components to the factory in time to hit delivery deadlines. However, we’ve worked hard over the last several months to build up these relationships and plan accordingly. We expect to hit all of our delivery promises with the launch of the Groove Watch Band.
