    Cheap Quality

    Within months, small cosmetic scratches allow the shiny stainless steel underneath to shine through and destroy the sleek appearance I thought I’d enjoy for years. Less than two years from purchase and a small metal piece came off the latch and now the band is worthless. Apple support has no option to repair; you’re only recourse is to buy a brand new band. Terrible quality and terrible customer support. Buy a third-party band and save your money.

    Another Great Product from Apple

    This band is innovative, and I have owned it for over a year. It does not have a single scratch. The couple of times I thought I scratched it I rubbed it with a microfiber cloth and the scratches disappeared. I love how you can remove links on your own and the butterfly clasp is extremely comfortable and revolutionary. Overall this is an expensive product but worth the money and I love how it looks with my SBSS Apple Watch.

    Paid premium get bed quality

    Like many other (on the 38mm model) I'm very disappointed in the quality of the product. I was told the coating would last years without any wear. After a few months, it started showing silver stainless steel.
    Paid premium to get the best quality and end up feeling like I should have gone the Chinese road.

    Waste of good money

    Most expensive of the Apple straps. But probably of the worst quality. Black gets scratched and peels after only a few months. Apple should seriously look into this and make replacements!!

    Very disappointing

    Ordered this watch for my husband’s 60th birthday.
    It was not inexpensive to say the least, and the
    Description said it was a great quality made item & the coating on the
    Band would last for years. Within a few months the coating was chipping
    And now it looks awful.
    A replacement band is fairly expensive too. Disappointed in Apple’s
    Quality!

    Beautifully crafted both in terms of design and workmanship

    The link bracelet goes very well with the black stainless steel watch. It isn’t heavy yet very well finished and gives the watch a premium yet understated look. The adjustments are great and so far I am very happy with it. It is great when you want s little dressed up look over the sports band.

    In terms of durability, given that it is colored metal it is likely to chip. So far mine looks great but l won’t be surprised to see a chip in the paint here and there. This band is great for what it is. No other Apple band comes close in terms of design or build quality.

    Disappointed by the quality

    Like many other (on the 42mm model) I'm very disappointed in the quality of the product. I was told the coating would last years without any wear. After a few months, it started showing silver stainless steel.
