    I picked up the new Fog gray sports band over the weekend for my space gray sport. Band looks great with the watch, but it feels softer and more flexible than the black band that came with my watch. Feels better actually. Anyone else notice this?

    I actually noticed this with the antique white and red band I picked up in the last couple weeks. I thought it was just me but prefer the softer side and feel.

    I ordered a new purple sports band made by Moko today. I'll report back when I get it next week. The reviews are very positive so I have high hopes.

    My purple sports band made by Moko arrived Saturday. I am very pleased with the product. As most of the reviews on Amazon say, the band is almost identical to a genuine Apple band. The only difference is that the material is slightly thinner. The latch, which I really like, is identical. There are cheaper knock-off sports bands, but I doubt you'll find a better one. I plan to order two or three more and maybe even take a chance on the milanese loop band.

    Would you mind posting some pics with your actual watch? I'm just curious to see how it looks in real life

    Sure, I'd be happy to, but it won't be before tomorrow. I'm at work wearing the link band today.

    Awesome, thanks! I am one who constantly changes the case on my iPhone, so I can't wait to try it out with my watch!

    I took about 50 pictures of the watch band last night. Turns out I'm a lousy photographer.
    In any event, here's the only picture that was decent --

    How's the fit? Any issues with it in comparison to the official Apple strap?

    I picked up the Product Red band the day it was launched and it does feel softer than the other three floromastomer bands I got when the Watch was launched.

    I might wait a bit and get another black band to see if there is a deference.

    It fits exactly the same. These bands come with three pieces just like the Apple band. I noticed when I put it on that it even used the exact same hole for the snap as my black Apple sports band. To reiterate, other than price of course, the ONLY difference is that the material is slightly thinner.

    I notice the difference between the white band that I had and the black band that I have.
