Monowear Interchangeable Watch Bands

One of the great things about the Apple Watch is the option to make it your own. Since it goes without saying that Apple's band options won't come cheap, Monowear has started a crowdfunding campaign to create a set of interchangeable bands in leather and metal for $80.
