    cheap feel, not worth $49

    • Written by Michael L from Chico

    zero stars if possible, this is cheap and lame of apple to charge so much for this product.

    Basic but great

    • Written by Franklin M from Ann Arbor

    When I bought the Watch 3 I picked this band in hopes of finding another one that was nicer and not as expensive as the Apple bands. It worked great and I’ve kept it for the last six months and only decided to replace it because it was getting grimy (I work out with it regularly). The other band didn’t work out and I washed this and it looks good again. Still will seek something nicer, but it works well and looks fine.

    Purchased this a week after release

    • Written by Marianne N from Wayne

    I love this band. It is very comfortable. Sadly I guess with the color I have noticed that it gets dirty. It has a light yellowish tint and the white looks a bit darker then when I first purchased it. I think this is because of the wear and tear.

    Seashell for Stainless Steel

    • Written by John N from Fitzroy

    Only had it a day but love it so far. Came here to say those of you looking for one of these to go with your Stainless Steel version of the watch, I tossed up the colours because none of them felt like they would really match. The bit that goes in to attach to the watch is white, for instance. I didn't know if that'd be odd.

    After looking at one in a shop I went with the Seashell and it's terrific. Fits right between smart and casual, and the white/silver works great.

    Comfortable but snags too easily

    • Written by Kelly R from Tucson

    I love this band but, unfortunately, my one week old band looks a year old. It snags too easily. If it was $10 it would be ok, but $50? I would expect better quality. It is comfortable.

    Too long for small wrists

    • Written by CAROL S from Coupeville

    I got this band for my new watch because is didn't require putting through a specific hole. It's a nice band but I have smaller wrists and even the 38mm band is too long. It actually wraps almost half-way around which is noticeable and a little bulky. If it were smaller it would be great.

    I should have tried one on at the Apple store before ordering but the long lines discouraged me from doing so.

    I Love This Band!!!

    • Written by Mary Brenda S from Cumming

    As a first time Apple Watch user - just bought a Series 3 yesterday - I was unsure of which band I wanted. I did not like the Sport Band that is standard with the watch as when trying it on in the store I found it difficult to fasted (I'm 73 yrs. old & have arthritis in my hands and wrists). Then I saw this loop band with the velcro closure, and after trying it out found it to be extremely easy to put on my arm and adjust as needed. It adds virtually no weight to the watch, the material is very soft and is cool and comfortable to my arm.

    I hope Apple will continue this band and possiblly add to this model some dressier styles - say, in leather & in stainless mesh. And, I must say thanks to Apple - even though I didn't like the Sport Band, at least they include in the box an additional section of the band that is longer than the standard band (maybe that was done for the guys who want the smaller watch, but not all women are petite!). This loop band fits just right, with about two inches to spare.

    More comfortable than the regular sports band

    • Written by Lucia G from Thornton

    I chose this over the regular rubber sports band because it’s more comfortable. The downside is that it takes longer to dry if it gets wet and since it fastens with velcro, it doesn’t seem as safe. It’s also a bit bulkier but maybe that’ll go away after some use. Overall I still like it.

    Not sure yet...

    • Written by Kimberly H from Port Orange

    I mostly wear the Nike Sport band. Thought this might be a little more breathable. It looks okay but I’m not really liking the bulge when the band folds over. Hopefully with time it will flatten out but I can see where it might catch on stuff.
