    Has anyone bought one of these? In particular the Black or Red one?
    If so, do you know if they get marks on then easily?

    I'd hate to be wearing it daily and somehow get a scratch on it. I know it will get wear and tear, but...

    I haven't. In fact, I only have the white sport band that came with my Watch, and the black sport band that I purchased months afterwards.

    Check out third party alternatives. Very close in quality but often much cheaper. You can buy several and switch. Better for sweat as well as leather bands tend to smart smellung if you wear the same one every day.

    That is what I would suggest as well. I loved the look of the Milanese Loop band but didn't want to pay the high price for the Apple version without knowing if I would like the band or not. I purchased a third party band when I saw it as an online "Deal of the Day" at an office supply retailer. For less than $30 I was willing to give it a try. This band has been fantastic. So good in fact that I never did get the Apple version and I saved the $120. You might just get lucky too...

    If budget is a concern, LOTS of third party options for sure.

    I've been looking myself, here's one from Kartice on Amazon that looks pretty nice.

    I got one similar to that before, and it was quite shiny. Almost a pleather type look/feel. Even had a note in the box about it not being pleather! Guess I wasn't the only one that felt that way. I sent it back, just waiting for the right time to pick up the real Apple one. Maybe I'll add it to my Christmas list

    I don't have an Apple Watch yet (hopefully in the new year), but I've already got my eye on the leather bands by Nomad.
