    Apple has introduced three new Watch bands:



    There are also three new matching cases:



    I just got two Sport Loops (Black, and Dark Olive) and thought I was done for awhile. But the new Flash (bright yellow) is also available in a Sport Loop. So I've got to check that out.

    The Sport Loops are the most comfortable Apple Bands I've ever worn. I think the Milanese Loop (in Black) would be as comfortable. This will be my last Sport Loop until I see how they wear. I don't know how the band will hold up with the hook portion constantly pulling on the fabric.

    My Black Mil-knock off has a very nice feel; it just doesn't stay tight and needs constant adjusting.

    I frequently wear a yellow Sport knock-off and am frequently asked two questions— 'is that an Apple Watch' and 'are you a veteran'. This surprises me on both counts.

    I’m interested to see how the Blue Teal looks like in person.
    I’m all set for now with my Sport Bands and SB Milanese.
    I can’t wait to see next year’s bands.

    In my experience - no, not it you have arm hair. The Milanese Loop is a fine band, but I do not find it as comfortable as the Sport Loop.

    I do, and unless the Apple version is a worse implementation than this knock-off, I don't have any problems with snagging. My only complaint about the Mil-KO is that the magnet is too weak to hold an adjustment for long.

    I do like the flash band. Might have to pick one of those up. Will probably wait until I can see one in a store though.

    That is not a problem with the Apple Milanese, at least in my experience with it. I don't wear it often, but it always stays good and snug. My one issue was the time I was carrying my Messenger bag, which had a magnetic closure. When I sat on the bus with the bag in my lap, the band magnet kept getting attached to the bag as I lay my arm across the bag. That is obviously not a major issue. I've read some reviews where people had to occasionally adjust the band tighter, as it loosened or stretched as they wore it. That doesn't happen to me.

    @ksassy Well I do what I can. Looking at the Flash Sport Loop, I think I'll pass, but I like the Flash Sport Band and case.

    I like them too, and the sport loop (have a knock-off already). The sport band and case are definitely more "flashy" (see what I did there? ), but I like them. Would worry about getting them dirty though, but it might be worth the risk.
