At Basis, we understand that wearables are an important part of how you express yourself. So why do so many new wearable technology products make it difficult to for you to customize the look of your device?
Unlike the rest, Basis was created with personalization in mind from the very beginning. And we are proud to present 3 carefully-crafted, premium designs for you that blend art and technology from prominent U.S. artists and the Basis team.
Basis has been working with leading artists – Stephen Holding from NYC and Sirron Norris from San Francisco – to craft designs that make your Basis band look and feel special. Whether you prefer colorful expression (Electric Spring by Stephen), classic looks (Carbon Steel by Basis) or murals (Cityscape by Sirron), we have options for you.
Read on about why each design is special or get your hands on one of these limited editions before they run out.
Carbon Steel by Basis
Our Carbon Steel strap is the flagship of Basis’ premium design straps, and looks equally at home in the boardroom or the gym. The Basis team carefully crafted the Carbon Steel strap, combining a polished stainless steel clasp with stretchable, silicone black straps for a classic look. The durable stainless steel clasp is completed in a chrome finish and perfectly matches the metal touchpins on the face of your Basis band. The silicone black straps are lightweight with black stitching and stretch just a little to ensure that they fit your wrist comfortably. On Carbon Steel, every detail was carefully designed with a luxurious look in mind. Buy yours today for $49.95.
Cityscape by Sirron Norris
The Cityscape premium strap was designed by world-famous muralist Sirron Norris to represent your personal journey towards getting healthy amid the hustle and bustle of daily life. Sirron depicted this journey in his signature artistic style (the use of cartoons as a vehicle to express life) by drawing a black and white mural on a white strap, with a street winding through a cityscape. With the Cityscape Premium strap by Sirron, you’ll maintain that deeper message about your Basis band while wearing something fun! Buy yours today for $34.95.
About The Artist

In 2011, Sirron’s work was featured in the animated pilot for FOX network’s show Bob’s Burgers, which was created by famed writer/director Loren Bouchard.

Initially, Sirron worked as a production artist in the video game industry while he perfected his skills as a fine artist.
On Working with Basis: “I love the idea of gamifying exercise and that, coupled with the chance to wear my own art, made creating this a no-brainer,” says Sirron. “I’d never seen anyone try and depict an entire landscape scene on a watch before so I embraced that idea to create this design.”
