    Hey guys!

    Long time no see

    What bands have you guys purchased for your apple watch?

    Feel free to post 3rd party as well as Apple official bands as I will be stealing idea as this thread progresses as I have become rather obsessed with changing up the look of my watch quite often!

    Hope you are all well!

    Here's a collage of all my straps to date.

    They are all currently official Apple straps.

    I'll do a brief review of each.

    Link Bracelet

    The link is gorgeous. Definitely the best looking band I own. It's comfortable and has a nice weight to it. Not too heavy and not too light. Feels very premium.

    Milanese Loop

    The Milanese is stunning. It is an extremely comfortable band and avoids wrist sweating as it is breathable. Looks very elegant and classy and in a certain light it sparkles.

    Black Classic Buckle

    This is the band my watch came with. It is a very soft leather which is very comfortable and I have had no issues wearing this for long period of time. Saying that. The way the band connects to the watch ruins the look of the watch IMO

    Sports Bands

    Both are very comfortable. My wrist does sweat when I wear one but it's a non issue. Very soft rubber material, feels like you're not wearing a watch when using this band.

    Dang! That link band is nice but I just can't justify paying that price for a band. I've been thinking about the ML for suit and tie days.

    I had a hard time justifying the link. But in the end I just took the plunge and never regretted it. I use it almost every day and it'll probably be compatible for a couple of years. I'll get my money's worth

    I was about to replace the Sports Band with a Third Party band from Amazon. You gave me the much required boost of confidence that it will match well! Thank you.
