    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!

    Well made, comfortable, and looks way better than in pictures

    My watch is the black aluminium, 42mm version. I've used quite a few other bands (black fluoroelastomer, which came with the watch; stainless steel milanese, and a KO version of the Hermes leather band), and this band is by far the most comfortable band I've ever used for the Watch. The fluoroelastomer gave me rashes. The milanese looks really nice but because of the magnet it can become loose as you wear it and the colour really doesn't go along well with the black aluminium. And for the KO Hermes, well, it looks nice but sometimes it gets itchy (no rashes though) and it probably goes along better with the stainless steel or silver aluminium. This black nylon is probably the best in terms of looks, it's the best one so far when matched with the black aluminium Watch that I have. It fits well, doesn't get loose, and again, I can't really stress enough how comfortable it is (there are times when I forgot that I was wearing the Watch).

    I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice looking, comfortable strap for the Watch from Apple. It's really worth the price.

    Slides through the magnetic lock...

    This is one of the first products I have ever reviewed that didn't meet my expectations. I assume it is a manufacturing issue with a particular batch, however, the piece that has the clasp and slides into the watch didn't lock securely. It's like the plastic nubs were reversed etc. Took it back to the Apple store to get replaced but the new strap also slid right through not locking in place. Go with metal and lock "mechanism" instead of rubber!

    Light and stylish

    This watch band breathes really well, and on a hot day it's a lot more comfortable than the sport band. Plus I love how light it feels and it looks great even with the silver aluminum case.

    Lugs don't fit

    I have now owned TWO of these bands in black and both had the exact same problem. The non-clasp side does not fit in either end of the watch. You have to forced it in so hard, it feels like you could break the plastic lugs. It's nearly impossible to get it out after that. The clasping side fits in, but the magnet will not catch, no matter how many times you try. This is the second bad band. I have never had either of these problems with any of the other numerous bands I own. The production quality problems that are obviously prevelant are pretty disappointing.

    Love it

    I purchased the black woven nylon band. This is my third watch band. I have gold aluminum case and it looks great with it. The other bands that I have are both sport bands. This one is significantly more comfortable - especially when wearing for long periods of time. Highly recommended.

    Excellent

    The appearance is more silvery gray than black, but in any case,
    it's really comfortable and cool.

    I wish there were move colors with the black buckle.

    Poor fit

    The plastic pieces that slide into the watch seem to be to big. it is very hard to push the band into the watch body. Apple wants me to send the watch band back and said they would ship a replacement out within 5 days. or i could take a 8 hour road trip to the closest apple store.

    Skin irritation

    I like the look of this band, but find it very uncomfortable. The edges of the band rub against my wrist and have created unpleasant skin irritation. It is unclear if this is due to the nylon or due to the sharp edges of the band, but in either case, I find this band uncomfortable. :-(

    Lightweight!

    I loved the sport band, it was very simple and fit great, this band is even better! It is so lightweight I no longer find my self adjusting the band at all or anything. I can never even feel it on! I thought Apple bands were always pricy but this band is worth it.

    Black & Brown

    The band arrived and it looks and feels great but it's more brown that I expected. The web pics make it look black/grey vs black/grey/brown. That being said I'll end up wearing this band the most.

    Excellent and comfortable to use band

    My black Woven Nylon band just arrived today and I have to say it is much more comfortable than the Sport Band. This is very likely to become my 'go to' band for work and social activities. Excellent build quality and design.

    Very satisfied!

    The black nylon band looks great. Lighter than the sport band. And thinner than it looks in the photos. This will become my band for work. Looks classier than the sport band. I would say it is more space gray than black. Has a shine to it that makes it seem metallic, like the Milanese loop. Definitely more dressier than the sport band. Quality is great and believe it is worth the $50. Nice job Apple. I recommend it.

    Beautiful

    This band is beautiful in person and is super comfortable. It's my new go to band. I really could not be happier with it. I purchased at the Natick collection and picked up at Solomon pond. Sold out nearly everywhere. It's awesome and worth every penny.

    Superb

    Have worn this band for a full day with the space black stainless watch. It compliments the watch very well and is wonderfully comfortable to wear. I have the sport band, leather loop and the classic buckle leather. The nylon band will be the everyday, "go to" band because of comfort and lightness.
    Some reviews have criticized Apple's prices. All of my bands are Apple. If you want quality, you have to pay for it. There is a reason why those third party bands are cheap, because they are.
