There are several solutions for Apple Watch users who have one too many watch bands. One of the solutions is obvious: dumping every band that you have in a container. But if you want to be more organized and also want to show off your expensive collection of Apple Watch bands, Twelve South Time Porter Apple Watch Band Organizer could be an ideal option, and here’s why.

How It Holds On To The Watch Bands

Time Porter uses a friction slot to hold the watch bands in place. The gray slot of the Time Porter is of rubber material, allowing one end of the band to be tucked inside without scratching it. The tightness is fairly snug. The bands will not just fall off or come with a slight tug. It will need a reasonable, purposeful tug to remove it.

How Many Can It Really Hold?

As for capacity, the 10-inch wide accessory can hold 6 bands neatly. But as you can see, it probably can get one more in if you are willing to squeeze a little. Then again, that will not be as neat looking, TBH.

How It Mounts Onto A Vertical Surface

The Time Porter offers a single option to adhere to a vertical surface and that’s 3M Command Strips. Here’s where I find it contributes to the imperfection of an otherwise perfect solution.

The command tape has a thickness and as you can see, the two tapes that came preinstalled on each unit do not cover the entire height of the Time Porter’s back.

Because the Command tape has a thickness and they are at the bottom of the accessory, there is a free play which you can feel when you are pushing a band into the slot.

It is probably nothing. Aesthetically, you cannot tell it is such but it can trigger some with OCDs when you are slotting in the watch bands.
