    Pros: The Melanese loop band adds a level of sophistication and glimmer to the Apple Watch, add it to the Sports model watch to instantly upgrade the look. Quality built as expected by Apple, nice magnetic snapping for band closure, and flexibility. Nicely weighted, not to heavy, but doesn't feel cheap either. Goes great with the sports silver watch bezel. Cons: way too pricey, but made my wife temporarily happy for her birthday. Look and feel seems more femine rather than gender neutral. Great for the ladies!

    Expensive but worth it

    Got this as a present for my wife's apple watch. She insisted that she had to have the apple brand strap. I tried every argument I could make to get the MUCH cheaper one's on amazon but in the end she won.. who woulda guessed? Anyways, she is extremely happy which is the whole point. When we did a compare to the apple brand and off brand type straps, you can definitely tell the difference. The apple strap is way more comfy to wear on your wrist. It almost has a cloth like feel even though it's metal.

    Love This Band!

    Just can't wait for this band to come out in a color other than silver. I love the silver look, but I want gold tone or at least black. It seems most men wear silver tones. But lots of women wear gold tone - and that's the position I'm in. So it was a big step for me to shell out the money for this band in silver tone. Lucky it was an open-box reduced item. Otherwise I'd have passed it by. In black or gold, however, where I'll get much more use out of it, well, I'll get buy it outright as soon as it's on the shelves! It's an easy switch from my black leather band and seems very secure.

    Milanese Loop watch band

    I am totally satisfied with my Milanese loop watch band. It is easy to change bands back and forth and easy to wear. I actually bought a generic brand and sent it back right away because it didn't even come close to the Apple brand. You get what you pay for that's certain. It's worth the extra money for sure. I have also used it when I went to the gym and it was not only comfortable but didn't leave any marks on my skin. I love this band when I want a classy look.

    I was using the plastic band that came with the watch. It worked well for a few months, then it started unclasping. Luckily I notice my watch on the ground both times it happened. I bought this band and love it! My watch looks classier, the magnet on the clasp is strong and it's super easy to adjust. I trust that I won't lose my watch with this band. I didn't give 5⭐️ Because of the price. It's nice quality but really, do you need to make that much profit on your already loyal watch owners?!

    Milanese Loop Stays Tight

    My husband and I purchased Apple Milanese Loop watch bands to replace the sport bands that came with our watches originally. The new Milanese Loop band looks so nice and stays snug. I enjoy the flexibility of the band adjusting to my wrist size without being too tight or too loose. I have had no annoying magnetic attractions from wearing this band. The band does have some magnet properties but you won’t find silverware being drawn to the band unless you are within an inch distance. I would purchase this watch band again.

    Best iWatch band I own

    I have several colors of the "usual" watch band for my 38mm iWatch. It's nice to change it up. However, the Milanese band is so classy looking (even my son commented on how cool it looked, and he never notices jewelry and accessories). I was s bit apprehensive about the magnetic clasp but it it easy to slip and and once it's in pace, there is never any sliding or loosening. It stays just where you put it. The only bad news is now my husband wants one for his iWatch too!

    Beautiful band, wife loved it. Always a perfect fit, makes the Apple Watch 4 LTE look classy. Magnetic clasp is awesome and convenient. Definately the right choice to go genuine Apple for watch bands. Do be aware that it's a metal band and will get light scuffs, particularly on the polished end, however over time the light scuffs will merge together and look uniform.

    I know there are aftermarket products out there for much less BUT the quality is no match whatsoever. I initially purchased an aftermarket Milanese band online through another website and it was flimsy compared to the original Apple Milanese band. This band has a strong magnet to keep your watch on your wrist and you never have to worry about it falling off. The mesh band is of outstanding quality. The price is totally worth it!

    Nearly Perfect!

    If you are looking for a band that has the appearance of elegance, this is the band you are looking for! No matter which watch you have, it seems to increase the appearance. If you are looking for an everyday band though, I would not recommend it, because it does seem to scratch but just on the magnetic clip. Other than that small issue the only other problem I have encountered is the fact it does indeed pull hair and once it attaches, there is no removing it.

    This apple Milanese loop band is so soft, smooth, and extremely comfortable. Oh, and it looks great!! I have the gold watch and the contrast is beautiful! The Apple band does not get wrinkles and kinks like the cheaper ones I have seen. You won't be disappointed.

    I bought this mainly cause it looked cool. I don't have the biggest wrists around, but for those who do this might be an issue. From my experience, I was always having to adjust/re-tighten the band. It is magnetic, and when I would clinch my fists or move any muscles on my arms the band would loosen. However this could've only been me.

    High Quality, Overpriced

    it is really well made, but you can find suitable generic models online. I found one that seems identical in material and workmanship. The generic band had slightly more lateral (side to side) sway than the apple branded version, but at $150 vs $12 with a 1 year no-questions-asked-replacement warranty, I didn't see that much difference to warrant the extra $140. There's not even a logo on the apple branded band.

    I originally had the band that came with the sport version of the apple watch. Though the original band feels good to the touch I tend to always think that it is coming loose. This band on the other hand has a strong magnet which pretty much keeps its hold the entire time I have it on. I can say that sometimes it gets so tight that it can get hard to take off. It is a good upgrade for the apple watch.

    I read numerous reviews prior to purchasing the Milanese loop band. Expensive yes, but all the knockoff reviews complained about the band snagging on clothes. If you ruin a few clothing items you have paid for the band. Band wears very comfortably, looks refined. I love the magnetic strap. Best feature of all. Easy on/off. Now want the black, but it is $50 more than silver. You will enjoy this band. Highly recommend!

    Great quality! After I purchased the band I had second thoughts because of the cost. However after wearing the band I am pleased about my purchase. The quality of the band is strong, looks sophisticated, and holds up to rough wear. To compare the Apple Band against the imitation band on Amazon you can definitely tell the difference in the quality. Buy genuine! don't be fooled by imitating items. Q

    The band is very high quality, however my personal preference would be for it to be wider. The look is very fashionable but tends to snag arm hair as the weave is very tight. The band changes the entire look of the watch giving it a more refined dressed up look. This should be the default band the Apple Watch comes with for the price tag. I do feel it's overpriced for what it is

    Milanese Loop for Apple Watch

    I can't believe Apple would put something out like this, Not worth the money. Don't get me wrong it looks and feels great on your wrist but the problem is the magnet. The magnet will not hold the band snug on the wrist you will constantly be adjusting it. Save yourself time and money and get the similar one at Best Buy for half the price.

    I purchased a knock-off and it took time to get the band on and off and it snagged some of my sweaters. I decided to buy the real thing after reading reviews here and other sites and decided to buy from Best Buy as I could order and pick up in an hour at my local store. I'm glad I bought the real thing, fits better and has not snagged any clothing.

    I am finding it very hard to size this band for my wrist. I purchased the rose sports and like the fact the apple made this band for this watch. It really doesn't look bad up against the rose watch, but I should probably purchase the silver cover to go with it. If you are looking for a more sophisticated look this band will do but the price is a little steep.
