    Default Best Sports Band From Amazon

    I am ordering a few items from Amazon today and wanted to add a nice 3rd party sports band for my Apple Watch Series 2.

    Any recommendation on which is the best one to get?

    How about a black milanese steel loop?

    If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative to Apple's bands, take a look at MoKo. They're all over Amazon.

    Moko bands don't ship to Hong Kong but FanTEK bands do.

    By the way if my wrist size is about 6.7" or 17cm, should I get a small/medium band or a medium/large band?

    Both ways I can probably manage.

    I would get the medium to large size. you can always tighten down, but you can't make a smaller bigger.

    All the Moko bands I've purchased come with three pieces, just like Apple bands.

    My Moko band that is the US flag only came with two pieces. It fit fine, so I didn't worry about it.

    I purchased an iSank one and quality seemed very good. I didn't have another sports band to compare it to though. I only used it for about 5 days before exchanging my watch though

    Do the Moko bands attract lint and dust?

    Thx. That's good to know. It's really a nylon style I want that's not too long. My initial look for Moko on Amazon got metal ones and leather.

    If you're looking for nylon, I'd recommend taking a look at Kartice. I've got one of theirs and I can't tell the difference between it and an Apple nylon band I own.
