    Awesome Watch!

    I’ve been following the Apple Watch since series One. I’ve wanted one since they were first introduced in 2015. I also knew, like any other product, that after a couple of years they’d have all or most of the bugs worked out. After further reading and research I finally bought one. The series Three with GPS & Cellular capability’s is awesome! Although I’ve only owned mine for a few days, I have not had one single issue making or taking a call, the reception is excellent (AT&T), text messaging is a breeze and being able to reply to an email is just as easy! I absolutely love my new Apple Watch Series 3! If I had to pick one issue, the only thing I can think of is I didn’t care for the nylon watch band that came with it. It’s cheaply made for such a nice watch. But that was an easy fix, as I bought the black metal link band and it looks so much better! But that’s just my opinion. Some may love the nylon band that’s included with the watch. But, you’re not paying for the band, you’re paying for the incredible technology and quality of the actual watch itself! I especially love the space grey, as it looks so awesome with the black link band I purchased separately. Another feature that just blew me away is the water dispersement feature. Yes, if water does somehow get in your watch, there is a function on the drop down menu that looks like a rain drop. Push this button and it will actually “squeeze” or eliminate the moisture or water back out of the watch. Worth every penny and I also purchased the two year Apple warranty service for only $40! A no brainer for such a nice watch as an insurance policy just in case. You will love the Apple Watch series 3!

    I don't wear this band as much as I do my brown leather one but I don't regret buying it. Every now and then a break from brown is needed and this is the band I always turn to. It's good looking and built nicely. The included tool to remove links is a nice touch. I was wearing it at a Doctor appointment the other day and noticed he was wearing one like it. He had gotten his for around $10 on ebay. He said he had worn it less than a week and the black was already wearing off the underside of the band. After comparing his band to mine, he said he'd order one that evening. So there you have it! It's doctor approved.

    Got this and as I wanted a nice classy looking metal band to use occasionally on my Apple Watch. Looks super sharp and feels good to wear. I made the mistake of wearing it to work to my desk job. Within an hour of computer use the band had visible bare spots where bright shiny metal now shows instead of the black color. I only recommend as a watch band if it won’t be in contact with a desk or other hard surface because the finish comes right off. Otherwise the band is outstanding and well worth the price.

    It’s hard to find a band that compliments the Apple Watch without spending a fortune. This band is affordable and looks great! I love that it comes with an adjustment tool. I just purchased it, so I haven’t experienced the finish issue mentioned in the other reviews. This may be prevented by something as simple as changing the band to match activity. It’s probably not one for full time use.

    Beautiful, but deployment clasp has sharp edges

    *** Pros *** - It is very beautiful, and looks great with dress/casual shirts. *** Cons *** - The deployment clasp has sharp edges, and it is not comfortable to wear for a long time. It could be that I have a small wrist. So, I replace the clasp with the one come with my old quartz watch. - Pins are very thin and easy to bend when putting it back.

    High quality Link strap for Apple Watch

    I was looking for a reasonably priced but good quality stainless steel link band for my Apple Watch and the Platinum band hit the mark. The band is well made and has a very good finish. The latch works nicely and the band is comfortable to wear. Links are removed with the included pin pusher tool. You need to be a bit patient with removing and reinstalling the pins. I found that the tool nicely pushed out the pins but found that it was better to first slide the pin into place and apply a firm pressure on a hard surface during reassembly.

    Horrible watch band

    Bought the stainless steel watch band for 42mm iWatch and really liked in the box. It was easy to attach to watch. But, when I tried to take a link out to re-size watch band, it was impossible!! Worked on it for over 2 hours and really buggered it up. It's now all bent and useless. Directions make it sound so easy. Nothing could be more wrong. Worse product I've bought in years. Looks good but very cheap and can't adjust. Couldn't take back because I ruined it trying to re-size the band.

    Good idea, poor execution

    This watchband had potential. It looked nice, and I was looking for a band that would look more professional for work. Unfortunately, adjustment was difficult. Several pins did not release well, and the tool to remove the pins was cheaply made. It comes with two spare pin tools, which is good, but should be a warning as I bent two up just trying to remove one pin. I ended up returning this item as I had no confidence in its construction.
