I LOVE this band. I actually like it much better than the ones from Apple and that's before you even look at the price difference! This band compares with the Milense at 1/5 (20%) the price. I can get 5 different bands for the price of one Apple band!
The magnet clasp is super strong. It's fairly easy to remove it from it's "loop" though it could be easier. It's definitely not a deal breaker. I've got the Stainless Steel 44mm graphite color watch and this band matches it perfectly! I'm extremely impressed with it.
I like it so much, I'm actually thinking of getting a couple more but in different colors (like silver or red) for some contrast to go with my mood/look for the day.

Great sorta dupe
1. save $100 over Apple Milanese loop
2. the double over portion sits close to the point near where a clasp would be located
3.sits flush and doesn't impede typing
4. no tarnishing or color changes as seen on cheaper dupes,
5. Strong magnet for decreased slippage
6. Allows the skin to breath
The only negative may be unique to me, I have a 7.0-inch wrist and I wear my watch upside down and behind the wrist bone (or the beginning of the forearm). Therefore, I wish the strap was an inch or so longer. This may be an issue for those with larger wrists as well.
I wanted a metal strap for my Apple watch but did not want to pay $150. The Best Buy Platinum stainless band is lovely. Though it is not an exact dupe, due to the two separate pieces, it is a great substitute. The band allows my skin to breathe, unlike the active band that came with the watch. I also like it because I did not have an allergic reaction. I am sensitive to items that contain nickel, like some of the other amazon/eBay knock-offs. The metal portions that connect to the watch slide smoothly on and off. I did purchase an Amazon dupe that did not slide well; I thought It was going to break my new gadget. I would recommend Best Buy Platinum products, after all, they are pretty nice dupes!!!
The only criticism would be the inability to remove links to adjust for small wrists ( i don't need to but it may be an issue for tiny wrists).
The difference is that there are 2 pieces instead of on one. The band is stainless steel and works great on my sensitive skin. the attachment slide on/ off without an issue, and lock in place very well.
