    Love the new "black" sport band

    Yes the photo looks like solid black but after seeing it I thought I ordered the wrong band. However I really like the little iridescent-like sparkles. I love this band because it sits so softly on the wrist, you barely know you have it on. I gave the oyster one to a relative and her reaction was:"I never knew I needed an Apple Watch! It is the best gift I ever got!" I agree!

    Not black and uneven feel

    If you don’t mind watch being uneven with this band and you’re not sure what the color black is supposed to look like this is the band for you. ����

    So comfortable

    Always switching for 2 to 3, my old band became quite annoying. With this band, those days are over. Love it!

    Good but not black

    The sport loop is OK, but the adjective "black" and the pictures are misleading.
    If you expect a band that is actually black, you should go and see it in a Store first.
    Depending on the ambient light it can look dark grayish, gray pinkish or gray orangish... But it looks black only at night ;-)

    Black Sport Loop Is Great But...

    I have had 3 generations of the watch and several types of bands. I wear the sport loops the most for comfort and convenience, but I really wish it also came in a pure black.

    Not black

    While I like the Velcro like band, this is not black. It’s rainbow with black shading. Very disappointing. Seems the good bands to get are the cheap non-Apple ones.

    NOT Black

    I have an assortment of Apple Watch bands and was really looking forward to purchasing this band, UNTIL I saw it in person. It's NOT black, but instead, reminds me of a black athletic sock, with white/gray elastic, turned inside out. Lots of gray threads are woven into the material making it look, for lack of a better term, used/worn. Sure wish Apple would make a solid black Sport Loop, as I would purchase one in a heartbeat.

    Nice band...but not all black.

    The band is nice and light; however it has sparkles of colors in it and isn't pure black. The photo is a little deceiving.

    Most comfortable band yet

    I initially thought I would be unhappy with the velcro fastening. However, this is the most comfortable, easily adjusted, and breathable band yet. I have had an iWatch since the first one came out. I got the iWatch 3 with the sport loop band and am extremely happy with it. No more sweating underneath like with the plastic sport band. Lightweight and with multiple adjustment options make this a big improvement. I ordered the black/with colored specks for gym use.

    38mm Black Sport Loop

    Not entirely black as advertised, but an excellent band nonetheless.

    Not Black

    Love the band... hate the color. It is black with rainbow speckles. I ordered it from my phone so I did not notice, so the name is a little misleading in my opinion. I am a guy who likes dark solid colors. I will probably return the product and buy third party which is the last thing I want to do. There is just not one I like and this was a letdown.

    Beautiful and fresh band

    I received this band a few days ago, but I didn't want to leave a review without trying it first. I have to say, I ordered right away thinking it was going to be completely black. A few days later, I actually zoomed in the photo and noticed that it wasn't completely black but instead had little colors all over it. I thought about returning it once I got it, but once I opened the package I was already in love with the color. It is not completely black, the colors might be a bit obvious, however it's really beautiful, it's still dark and it matches my space gray apple watch perfectly.

    The band is incredibly light, I wanted to buy this band because I'm actually a fan of velcro, and, to me, this band is way more comfortable than the sports band because I can actually bend my wrists without feeling uncomfortable. Since it is velcro, it has that loud sound of velcro each time you try to take it off or adjust it. I don't mind, but I know some people do so it's important to mention it.

    I'm wearing this band as my everyday band and I really love it. I use the sports band as... my workout band, but this one is pretty comfortable to do a lot of exercise obviously. All in all, I love this band, the color and how light it feels on my wrist, I also love that it's so easy to put on and take off. Anyway, to me this is the best band for the Apple Watch, whether you do sports or not.

    Like the band... but not Black...

    Like the fit but when ordering black I did not expect it to be a "little black with a bunch of rainbow bright sprinkles".... so I'm back to the Black standard band...

    It has Velcro

    Once I go over the shock of the closure being handled by Velcro like strips I actually truly enjoy it. I was the whole band is essentially the loop portion of Velcro and then there are five thin hook strips near the end. The closure is very secure and doesn't leave any concern that the band will not stay on. I was extremely impressed with how light flexible and breathable it is. There is even a small amount of stretch in the band. By far the best band for an active lifestyle.

    Best Band Yet

    I've had an Apple Watch since it was first released. It quickly became the only watch I wore. I bought bands for the gym and casual wear. This band is the most comfortable band I have had. The fit is just perfect unlike the leather loop, due to the Velcro like closure you can get the size just right. The black is nice and has a little specks of color which are cool. I plan to buy the blue or grey next. Only four stars because I dont know how it will hold up to months of consisten use.
