    The more I wear this Apple sport loop, the more I like it. It’s SO much nicer than the 3rd party ones I had before. Now I want another for sure.

    I tried a leather band and it lasted a week. It got dirty and smelly with working out. So now I am back to the sport band.

    I don't like the nike or the Sport band didn't use either with my S2 and now S4, have had the nomad sport band for nearly 2 years now. Surf in it and hasn't worn or marked or anything. Wider than the apple which i like. Can't fault it.
    Excellent.

    I’ve seen that band at Best Buy. It reminds me of the stock band on the Samsung S3 Frontier. Looks like a sturdy replacement for the apple sport band.

    It’s always interesting to see what everyone likes and doesn’t like. It’s great that there are different materials and styles to choose from so you’re not stuck with one band you find uncomfortable or unattractive in order to get the watch you like.

    I’m one of those who always goes back to the sport band though. I like how flat it is on my wrist and think it looks sleek with the watch.

    I’ve had knock-off sport loops before with my S3 and didn’t like them very much, but I ordered my S4 with the sport loop and I like Apple’s own version a lot. Still like the regular sport a little better, but I want to get the Apple sport loop in Hibiscus. I think that will look fantastic with the space gray watch!

    I ordered a cheap leather band from Amazon to see if I would like leather. The band is actually pretty nice and clicks in the slots well and has a nice finish. But with a regular style strap the end sticks out on one side after it’s buckled and that I don’t like. It has 2 movable loops so you can slide one down to hold the end of the strap flat, but it doesn’t stay in place all the time. I don’t think I’ll get another leather (Apple’s magnetic ones are just too expensive) in the future.
    I LOVE my hibsicuis sport loop!!! I want the nectarine next!

    I always go back to the sport band-img_1010.jpg

    Gorgeous! Now I gotta get it!
    I got notice that my trade-in Series 3 has been received and I’m getting the full$175.00 refund. Some of it might be on an Apple gift card so.... I know how I’ll spend it!

    I just received a lavender grey sport band as a gift. I’m not a huge fan, but I’ll wear it & alternate with my leather band. I’m still not use to the rubber feel on my wrist, but I also haven’t worn one for very long. Wish me luck

    I'm sure if you give it time you'll find it to be very comfortable. But a lot of it might be in your head... sometimes that's harder to overcome (been there, done that)

    You’re probably right. I’m so use to wearing my dressy mechanical watches that it just feels weird wearing rubber on my wrist. I also still need to get use to how lightweight it is. I’ll probably go for the stainless next, although I love the way the space grey looks...Love the matte finish.

    After wearing the black sport loop band that came with my watch, I’m getting hooked on the sport loop. It’s really attractive and I like how it feels on my wrist. It’s making me not want to wear the regular sport band anymore, sigh...
    I want the Hibiscus, but I ended up ordering the seashell for now to give me another neutral to wear with anything. Got it today and love it with the dark watch!
    I’ll still get the Hibiscus a little later....it’s just too pretty! But the seashell is super nice.

    It’s a Velcro loop, like the Milanese loop you put your hand through the loop and then seat it on your wrist by pulling the band taught around your wrist. The Milanese uses a magnet to stay in place, and this uses Velcro to latch in place.

    It is Velcro, but as Apple always does its refined. I like that it’s infinitely adjustable like the Milanese mesh. And it’s soft and breathable.

    I just got this leather band today from Monowear and I really like it. It’s a new style they’re offering and it works just like the Apple silicone sport band, but in leather!
    I had to order it when I saw it because I don’t like buckles very much. Thy can hurt when I’m resting my wrist on my desk. But this offers the benefits of leather with the smooth, lay flat mechanics of the Apple sport band.
    The only problem... I didn’t notice that they sold it in S/M and M/L and I got the M/L. I have it in the next to the last hole and am wondering if I should exchange for the smaller one.

    I just purchased the Nomad classic leather band for my Apple Watch and I must say it is worth every penny. It changes the way the Apple Watch looks and feels. Very happy with it.

    I purchased a few bands for my Watch over the years, but they are all on my desk somewhere not being used because I prefer the simplicity of the black sports band with my black Apple Watch. No matter what I wear, it blends right in and I’m the type of person who wears office attire 7 days a week.

    You all have me thinking about putting the N+ band back on. But the SS Link is just so nice
    I just got my S4 a couple days ago and also ordered this Olive Flak/Black Nike Sport Band. I’m liking the color. Gives it kind of a rugged military look

    I just ordered the other color this band is offered in. (A cream color) They’ve had them on sale again so the price is great. The more I wear this one the more I don’t want to wear anything else! It’s so comfortable and looks classy too! This and the Apple sport loop are all I wear anymore, just hope they will offer more colors in the future because I would like it in navy.
