Take smartwatch sustainability to the next level with the new Global Goals band.
Samsung’s August Unpacked event launched a range of unforgettable products. From the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 to the GalaxyZ Flip4, we’ve been treated by new products.

Keep reading to find out more.
What Is The Global Goals Band?
So, what is this new watch band? And, how is it different from the standard Galaxy Watch options?
This smartwatch band is created to contribute to Samsung’s Global Goals. When users choose this accessory, 5% of the price is donated to the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme). This organization develops sustainable policies in over 170 countries, ensuring sustainable practices are developed worldwide.
The band offers a sleek white appearance, with small hints of color in the strap indents. These holes offer bright rainbow colors, providing a splash of vibrancy. Minimal and stylish at the same time!
Samsung’s band fastens with a traditional buckle fastening, keeping the watch’s look contemporary. While you can work out with this band, it’s not as optimized as a typical sports band.
Note that this band is only available for Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 users. Sorry, Galaxy Watch 3 users!
Where Can I Buy The Global Goals Band?
Is it time for you to invest in a new watch band? Make sure you check whether the strap is available in your country.
This band is currently available in:
- The Netherlands
- The US
- The UK
- South Korea
Hopefully, we’ll see it in other markets soon too!
Other Global Goals Initiatives
The new band isn’t the only initiative released by Samsung.
Developers have also released two additional watch faces in aid of Global Goals. These new design options integrate with the Samsung app, helping users choose styles that help an important cause.
The new Global Goals watch faces offer interesting quotes that relate to sustainability to get users thinking. They also link to Global Goals information, which is ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about sustainable plans.
Samsung is making an impressive effort to raise money and awareness for the goals, so we’re interested to see how many users embrace these new options.
Alternative Samsung Bands
Not sure the Global Goals band is for you? Other Galaxy Watch bands are available for all tastes.
Popular Galaxy watch straps include Milanese bands, two-toned sports bands, titanium bracelets, fabric bands, and hybrid straps. Whether you want a band to support your fitness or to look good when you go out, all colors and materials are on offer.
Like other brands, Samsung is dedicated to options and customization!
Will you be joining the Global Goals band users? Not only will you receive a sleek band, but you’ll be donating to a good cause. Keep your eye on the brand’s social media to find out more!
