    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

    Not Apple Quality Market Stall Product

    Very surprised at the poor quality of this watch strap. Clasp seems to be of poor quality plastic and will not stand up to normal wear and tear.
    Very much over priced. Not worth more than £2.50

    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!

    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.

    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. :-(
