  • Overview

    Soft, breathable, and lightweight, the new Sport Loop band features a hook-and-loop fastener for quick and easy adjustment. The double-layer nylon weave has dense loops on the skin side that provide soft cushioning while allowing moisture to escape. On the reverse side, the attachment loops are securely anchored for superior durability. Like all Apple Watch bands, you can match this band with any Apple Watch case of the same size.

      Comfortable and Stylish Alternative to Sport Band

It's much more comfortable than the fluoroelastomer sport band, and seems to hold up well during workouts. My only gripe is that it is not water resistant: if it gets wet, it will hold water for some time until it completely dries. Other than this, no major complaints here!

      The Apple Watch Band I have been waiting for!

      With the standard nylon band that came with my Apple Watch, I have always had to adjust the band when exercising to be sure that the pulse sensor was snug on my With the standard nylon band that came with my Apple Watch, I have always had to adjust the band when exercising to be sure that the pulse sensor was snug on my wrist. This was always challenging due to the limited number of holes available on the band to adjust the tightness and would also involve repositioning the watch on my wrist. The new Sport Loop takes care of this very easily. Besides allowing for an infinite number of tightening positions due to the velcro design, the band material is also "stretchy." So, no repositioning is necessary to get a proper fit. I have had zero false heart rate readings since I have started wearing the Sport Loop band. Bravo, Apple!

      Fits well

      The band is soft, slightly stretchy and fits very well. It is lightweight and feels durable.

      I really like this band

      I bought my Apple watch but didn't wear it much because I didn't like the sport band. I have big wrists and the last hole on the band was too loose, the second I bought my Apple watch but didn't wear it much because I didn't like the sport band. I have big wrists and the last hole on the band was too loose, the second hole was too tight. I decided to get this Sport Loop band and I'm very happy with it. It adjusts to any size It's plenty long enough for my big wrists. It's light and very comfortable. Now I'm wearing my Apple watch all the time and taking advantage of all the things that it does for me.

      A Total Winner Band for the Apple Watch

      I have had the Apple Watch 1, then 2, and now 3. I had the nylon band with the first, the Nike Sport Band with the 2nd, and now the Sport Loop with the AW3. I I have had the Apple Watch 1, then 2, and now 3. I had the nylon band with the first, the Nike Sport Band with the 2nd, and now the Sport Loop with the AW3. I far and away prefer this band. It is lightweight, adjusts instantly and to the exact amount of snugness you want, and dries quickly. All of that makes it great for when you are running, wearing it around or making Apple Pay purchases. No fussing around with trying to get the watch in the best hole for you, which may not be a perfect fit anyway. I wouldn't even consider going back to one of the different models. Can't see why someone wouldn't like the Sport Loop band.

      Nice band, but perhaps a little pricey for what it is.

It doesn't pull arm-hair, which is nice. The little flecks of thread color in the black make it look really interesting, which I like a lot. Better than if it were just a solid, boring black strap. It gives it a more premium look. Price is a little bit steep, but you can't really get into an Apple branded watch band for less than $50, so of the 'cheaper' options available, I like this one best (although I do like my Nike Band for working out since it doesn't absorb sweat; it's just not as versatile w/ the wardrobe as it's very sporty looking and I don't always want that look.) Still, I wish it were at least made in the USA or something to justify the high price, but I dunno... maybe the way it's constructed is super expensive or something. If I can get at least a year out of it without it looking scuzzy, then I guess $50 is worth it. While there are multitudes of third party Apple Watch bands and straps, I'm pretty much sticking w/ the Apple ones after poor experiences with the third party attachment mechanisms that slide into the watch's housing. With the first-party options, they always easily slide on and off and never get stuck, which I can't say the same for the after market ones I've encountered. All in all, a nice addition to my AW collection of bands, and if it holds up well, I may consider this in other colors down the road.
