    After Monday's presentation, is anyone planning to get a woven band? Wasn't that impressed at first but thinking the pearl or black might be good with my 42mm SS. Not sure the other colors are masculine enough but will check them out today most likely.

    I wasn't a fan of the woven bands either and I'm still not sure about them. It'll be a game time decision when I'm actually in person at an Apple Store.
    I don't think the pearl or the black are girly at all.

    One of my favorite bands is the white sport (I know you like the fog). I think the pearl woven is the closest, just have to see how it looks and feels in person.

    I ordered the black one for my space gray aluminium watch. For $49, figured it would be a nice change-up.

    Let us know how you feel about it when it arrives.

    I caved and ordered the black woven band for my SG watch. I've still been using my original black silicone band. I figured it was time for a change.

    I am curious about the bands and ordered the pearl. The reviews on the website are positive so far. I have two sport bands and the Milanese loop. This will be a good addition to my band collection. ⌚️

    I'm thinking of picking up the black one to wear at work, the using my Milanese after work. I'll eventually have to pick up a black Milanese too.

    My black nylon band arrived yesterday, and I love it so much! I was a little skeptical, but it's so light and comfortable. The color looks great to me as well.

    Looks good!

    Pics on the site showed stainless buckle but all the pics I've seen so far have been dark.

    The black woven band on the Apple Store app shows a black buckle but all of the other colors show stainless steel.

    I just picked up my black woven nylon strap today. I must say, I'm very impressed. The band is very stylish and comfortable. I think it'll be my new favorite.

    I really like the pearl. Almost sold on it! I'm hoping someone posts some pictures of stainless steel watch with a woven band.

    What color did you get?

    Went to the Apple Store and picked up the Pearl tonight - and took it right back. While I liked the look of it, I never got to try it on as the band was defective- it never would lock into the slot - the long side with the holes locked in, but the buckle end would not lock in no matter what. The guys at the store when I took it back had the same experience. They didn't have another one in stock and I wasn't keen on the red/gold one, so I traded it for a Red FE one.. it's nice, but I knew it would be - I wanted a new band material. Maybe next time I'm needing a change...

    I have a Space Grey sport watch, and thinking of getting the pearl one (the black one may look too similar to the black sports band). I wonder how the combination will look like in real life. Grateful if any of you owning this combination to share the pic

    I love the look and feel of the new woven bands, however I am probably not going to get one for myself... I have the 42mm SBSS watch and the band just looks amiss. I feel they are a little too narrow for the 42mm, but they do look great on the 38mm version. They should have had a couple different band width options.

    I was worried about it being narrow but depends on the photos. I just got my pearl (black is out everywhere and this was the last 42mm pearl I could find!) and it's not too narrow at all. I quite like it!

    Went to the Apple store today and bought the Royal Blue nylon woven band. I had planned on getting the Pearl, but they didn't have that one in stock. I like it okay, but I really prefer the sport bands. I think one of the reasons I'm not crazy about it is because there is too much "excess" band. The part with the holes in it almost reaches around to the watch itself. My wrist is just too small......LOL
