The stainless-steel bands will be offered in silver, gunmetal or rose gold colors to match the watch's case colors.
A special leather strap that will be embossed with a diamond pattern and be accented with Swarovski crystals will also be offered through a partnership with Swarovski Professional, according to Asus.
