  • Overview

    The Venezia leather for this band is handcrafted in Arzignano, Italy. With an artisan heritage spanning five generations, the tannery has a history of partnership with some of the most prestigious names in fashion. A delicate milling and tumbling process enhances the beautiful pebbled texture. And magnets concealed within the soft, quilted leather allow you to simply wrap it around your wrist for a precise fit and a trim look. Like all Apple Watch bands, you can match this band with any Apple Watch case of the same size.

      Excellent. Amazing craftsmanship.

      I wasn't 100% sold on this until I got it in my hands, and ultimately on my wrist. This band is so well crafted I would happily pay twice the cost to own it. I wasn't 100% sold on this until I got it in my hands, and ultimately on my wrist. This band is so well crafted I would happily pay twice the cost to own it. The fit and finish is second to none. If you're not sure you want a watch band that's secured by magnets, don't worry; there are several strong magnets keeping this on your wrist and it will not move even through a rigorous workout. You may wonder why the Apple branded band is more expensive, but once you feel it and try it on, you'll know. There's no looking back after this band. What really sold me is how well it fits into the watch itself; other bands (third party makers especially) fit and secure just fine, but end up having a little play, or looseness where the connection is made, this is not the case with this band. Snug as can be and worth every penny.

      Absolutely Stunning

When I opened the package I was treated with a hard white plastic box with the Apple Logo ingraved. The band was a little stiff at first but with more usage became more comfortable. The midnight blue color is amazing and looks good at casual and formal events with a wide array of outfits. Some reviews state that the magnets become more weak after time but in the last 5 months I have not experienced that. Although the bad is not a plush as I thought the texture and feel is very nice. This is the best Apple Watch band I have ever bought

      Perfect

      I think a lot of people will find it hard to justify the Leather Loop's price tag, but I am here to tell you that you definitely get what you pay for. There are I think a lot of people will find it hard to justify the Leather Loop's price tag, but I am here to tell you that you definitely get what you pay for. There are some reviews out there claiming that the leather feels thin or like plastic, however after comparing this band to one of the knock-offs, this band is light years ahead in comfort, style, fit, and finish. The leather has a rich natural smell and texture, the clasps fit extremely precisely into the watch receptacles, and the rare-earth magnets are much stronger and more consistent than what you get in third party bands. Also, it may not sound like a big deal, but the band is very easy to adjust to maintain good comfort throughout the day. I would say this band is more comfortable than the already comfortable sport band, and more stylish too! One thing I was pleasantly surprised by was the band's water resistance. Washing hands is not a problem. The only thing I might change about the band is that the stainless steel hole through which you loop the band could be silver aluminum to match my silver aluminum case, but this is very minor.

      On the fence?

      I purchased this band in May 2017 and it broke after wearing for less than six months! I rotated this band with others wearing it on average 4 days per week. I I purchased this band in May 2017 and it broke after wearing for less than six months! I rotated this band with others wearing it on average 4 days per week. I went to put my watch on this morning and the band split right in half. For the price paid I expected the band to last at least a year. It was very nice when it was new, but it's quality quickly diminished and is definitely not worth the retail price. I love my Apple watch, but will never buy this band again.

      Pretty, but doesn't last - get something tougher

      I wore mine for almost two years, by which time it had became completely unusable. With normal wear the leather starts to separate from the metal parts. Mine fa I wore mine for almost two years, by which time it had became completely unusable. With normal wear the leather starts to separate from the metal parts. Mine failed first where the leather band folds in half, then metal bits began to peek out along the edge more generally and finally the leather peeled back on the end that needs to pass through the loop. Now I have a band that is ugly and hard to put on and which can actually *cut my wrist* through normal use. I liked the look and feel when I first bought it - it seemed like clever engineering - but now the choice is either to wrap it in protective tape or throw it out. Apple really ought to replace products that fail this badly. Or better yet (since a replacement might fail similarly) offer a trade-in discount to substitute a band that works better.
