    Does not last long.

    I paid more money when I bought my watch for this band. I loved the band...BUT it only lasted me three months. I wear my watch everyday. So I am still very upset it didn't last longer. I just can't justify paying $50 for something that won't last that long :(

    quality item, but not quite right

    I have the new apple watch, and being a guy got the 42mm one. I chose the nylon strap as I wanted a secure strap. It looks great, feels secure.. BUT... I find that one hole is too tight (uncomfortable), and the next too loose (when running HR monitoring won't work particularly when you sweat). Great when swimming by the way. BUT... after a few days of running and cycling... the SMELL... I wash and rinse the band at least once a day which really .(input negative word)..... If you don't the odour (odor for americans) from your wrist makes you want to not wear the watch. Let me give you an example, at work (air-conditioned) in the morning, then at lunch go to the toilet, oops accidentally get some water on the strap, then your wrist will stink the rest of the day. deducted one star for the size, and deducted the other for the odour issue!

    Fantastic!!! Nylon Black Woven Band

    As compared to my black sport band I am loving the Nylon woven band it is very comfortable and very light. The buckle matches with space grey band watch. Overall I am satisfy with the quality and good to wear in office.

    meh...but the smell

    The band fits nicely and looks ok too. It may look a little slim for the bulk of the watch but overall I am pleased with the fit and look. Then the appeal stops. After a few workouts (month), even though it was rinsed and cleaned, the sour smell is off putting. At that rate, I will need to buy a band per month. I am going to try the sport band to see how well that works.

    Nice replacement for Sport band

    I bought this band to replace the Sport band which was included with my watch. I prefer it in most ways -- mainly, it's more breathable, so it doesn't slip around on my wrist when I get sweaty. It's a little more stylish, as well. Has nice subtle details, such as the stainless steel clasp, two tone underside, and a nice matte sheen in the light. The black woven nylon band pairs really well with the Space Gray aluminum watch. It's really more of a gray/black band.

    I only docked a star because the connectors at the ends (that slide into the watch itself) are very, very tight. I had no problem getting them to lock in, but getting them out is another story... I'm glad I ended up liking this band, because I pretty much can't get it off of my watch with my bare hands.

    Very pleased!

    I had put off buying this strap given the very negative reviews that had been given. However, having seen one in "real life", I took the plunge and am very pleased. The product is light, attractive and fits perfectly. The clasps and buckle are metal, certainly not plastic as indicated in another review. Indeed, the description on the box is "...Stainless Steel Buckle". Would recommend this strap without hesitation.

    Water marks easily

    This strap is light and easy to put on and take off, unlike the sports strap which can be fiddly. Be warned though, that if it gets wet, it visibly water marks and consequently looks grubby. Not what I expect from a £40 strap.

    High Quality

    I've been wanting one of these for a while now, as the silicon bands don't really let your wrist breathe. It's worth the money instead of buying a knock-off. Quick in-store experience at Easton (Columbus) made it even better.

    Comfy, light and well made

    Was a little surprised by a couple of negative reviews as I think this strap is great. Lighter than expected and with a fabric rather than plastic feel it is 100x nicer on your wrist than the standard issue sport strap. Quality is very much Apple and I have no complaints whatsoever. If you want something that looks classy whilst still being inexpensive, then this is for you!

    Apple strikes again!

    First impressions of this band are great! I had no issues with the two pieces fitting into the watch grooves and locking into place (contrary to what the 2-star posters haves experienced) [are you sure that you purchased from Apple and not some third-rate knock off from Amazon?] At first, I was a little fearful at the seeming rigidity of the material, but it's proven to be quite pliable and comfortable to wear. I'm still a little worried about long-term wear-and-tear, but only time will tell if it's built to stand the test of time. If Apple offered more mainstream patterns (e.g. solid black, navy, brown), I'd surely purchase more to coordinate. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend to others.

    Great Watch Band

    Excellent quality and black band looks great on my 42mm Space Gray watch. Very comfortable on my wrist. I like this band much better than the sports band that came on the watch. I would recommend the woven nylon to anyone wanting a new band for their watch

    I love this band. I've not had any issues like previous users when it comes to it being lose or not fitting the body of the watch itself. It's my middle ground go to for aesthetic. I highly recommend it.

    The strap disappointed me greatly

    The strap disappointed me greatly and the issue is a well known one also. The cheap plastic slide in lugs would not clip into my stainless steel watch face as has already been pointed out by various people on some forums. I have had to send it back for a refund and would strongly advise that you buy in store and try before you leave if you want this cheaply put together strap that makes my watch look like a prize from a fun fair machine when on.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    I have the black sports model and just recently purchased the pearl band. Really love the way it looks and the quality and workmanship. I want more bands! Highly recommend them!

    Better than expected, comfortable, my favorite band so far!

    Looks great with my gold aluminum watch. Feels very comfortable & light. Not stiff at all, not irritating to my skin. Can't comment on durability because I've only had it for a day, but so far, I prefer it to the silicone sport band (which I also like) that came with my watch. Highly recommended. Giving 4 starts only because it really is overpriced. A reasonable price for these would be around $30.

    When loose band disconnects from wrist; need to re-enter passcode regularly

    The 42mm Black Woven Nylon has several pros (light as a feather, attention-to-detail coloring for Space Gray watches) and cons (price, strap slipping out regularly), but its single-most unfortunate limitation seems to be sizing. After a week of use before returning (the first Apple product I've ever returned, since 1991), the problem with the Woven Nylon band is that the strap's almost right-feeling hole eventually feels terribly tight on your wrist, while its next right-feeling hole feels way too loose, allowing the watch to disconnect too frequently from the wrist. Several times daily I was prompted to re-enter the passcode of the very watch I'd been wearing all day, which is not my expectation of a $50 accessory from the original manufacturer. For me, the similarly-priced Sport Band is a better alternative.

    It's so light and comfortable!

    I have had my Apple Watch Sport silver aluminum with the sport band for about a year now. This band is so much better than the sport band, I'm very suprised by the price. Great Buy!
