    The black Apple nylon band has black lugs and a black clasp that would look nice. I have the blue nylon for my SS Series 2 and the band is extremely comfortable.

    This is the Milanese band knockoff I have. It's all black.

    @eyecrispy - that looks quite nice. All of the Milanese knockoffs I've looked at fall in the $20-$40 range... this looks to be much better quality. You pay for it, but I suspect it's almost an identical match to the real thing?

    Honestly, I haven't done a side by side comparison, but it looks ok to me. The only thing I have to complain about is that the mesh band doesn't line up with each other after you loop it through the end and wrap around your wrist --- when the mesh pieces lay on top of each other, it's not perfectly aligned. Not horrible, but I did notice that. Otherwise, the magnet is strong and it looks nice.

    Cool. That's a good find.

    So many options when you start poking around Amazon and other third parties. It'll make your head spin.

    If you're a patient sort and not heavy handed, you can probably fix that. Remove the bands and lay them flat along a straight edge to see if they are tweaked at all.

    One of them should be chosen to be straighter than the other. Take the other band and while keeping it flat, hold the band behind the lug and at the far end and slowly twist it (still keeping it flat) for form a very slight arc so that it lines up better with the other band. The longer band might be a better candidate for tweaking.

    Bend it a little and check the line up. If it's not right, try bending it a little more until you're happy.

    Oh golly. I am not patient enough for that. It honestly doesn't bug me that much.

    That's the $59.00 one.


    I ended up buying the traditional rustic brown.. They are 50% off the 1st gen models so I got the $150 one for $74 and some change
