    Terrible quality

    This is one of the most innovative of all of the Apple Watch bands. The closing mechanism with the magnets is terrific and it feels quite nice on the wrist.

    As every other reviewer has noted, though, the quality is terrible. Within six months the edges of the leather veneer were coming away from the metal links. Within a year, I had the band replaced for free at an Apple store. The replacement performed slightly better but was suffering from the exact same problem within 12 months,

    The edges of each link are now exposed. You can see where the edges start to peel away,

    I contacted Apple about this and the friendly representative said that I would have to have the band assessed before I file a consumer rights complaint as the replacement band is more than a year old.

    Please don’t buy this product. It’s so expensive and the quality concerns have not gone away.

    Does not last

    The strap looks good but fell apart after 18 months. I would not purchase this band again.

    I bought the black version of this strap expecting the normal Apple quality and I was happy to pay the expensive asking price thinking it would last years but after only a few months the leather began to peal away and it now looks cheap and terrible. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Very disappointed.

    Classy leather strap but not durable at all

    Beautiful looking and feeling strap. Don't expect this to last more than 12 months. The leather veneer soon wears through and then it looks really awful. Very disappointed.
