    My white sport band got a light greenish stain from a year of wear despite being cleaned every night that I decided it's time to replace it. I found this band while browsing the Best Buy store and thought it was cute. And in my opinion, it's as cute as the one Apple Store sells, without paying $49. Appearance-wise, I prefer the color of this Modal band as it's a pale pink, not bright pink. The nylon band is very comfortable, not itchy or annoying at all. The velcro closure works perfectly. My only complaint is that when I take it off at night, the strap gets unlooped from the buckle that I have to "thread" it back onto it, but it's really just a minor thing. Other than that, I like this a lot and enjoy wearing it. (Just FYI, after I purchased this, I found an article that says I can clean the stain off of my sport band by using either Magic Eraser sponge or nail polish remover. I did and it's almost white again.)

    BROKE!!!

    I purchased this Apple Watch band for my wife and in less than a month the little pins that hold the band to the Apple Watch broke and now the band keeps coming off (I’ve attached a picture so you can see what I’m talking about). We are extremely disappointed in this band. These things aren’t super cheap either, we shouldn’t have to buy a new one every single month! My wife doesn’t abuse her watch or do anything out of the ordinary with it, so it wasn’t her fault at all. I would NOT recommend this band to anyone unless you have a bunch of extra cash lying around and you love to just blow your money on buying new bands every 30 days (or replacement Apple watches since it’s bound to be broken or lost when this band breaks on you). This band is cheaply made - buy it at your own risk!

    Last month I got a fabulous Apple Watch at Best Buy, Lynchburg! I was not, however, thrilled with the band that came with it. I looked for another band that I might like, and saw this one! A velcro closure made it the perfect one for me!! I immediately put my Apple Watch with the new band on, and I couldn’t be happier! The band is lightweight and so easily adjustable, that I made the perfect decision! I love it!!

    I really do like this watch band a lot. It fits nice and is very similar to the watch band by Apple. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the plastic bits on it are not metallic as it appears in the picture on the website. They are more of a peach color, which was disappointing. Overall not a bad purchase though.

    I had the original metallic watch band that occasionally attached me magnically to my refrigerator. It was also heavy on my wrist. When I was buying an extra charger base for the watch I mention that to the salesman who demonstrated the one on his wrist and found one in the display that matched my watch. He demonstrated the ease of changing the bands out and I was able to do it myself.

    Zagg is the way to go. No doubt about it. I had it for a few days, ran into a concrete poll, and ended up cracking the screen. :( BUT!!! Like I have done to all my other zagg screens (even my iphones screen) I put the warranty on it by going to their website (free) and got it replaced for only the price of shipping for LIFE ($5.99)

    I love this band, it is comfortable and has lasted over 6 months now and is still in great condition. I didn't like using the original band that was provided with the watch because it was uncomfortable when I would sweat. This band is great and it an get wet and still feel fine.

    At first I was hesitant about the pink but it actually goes well with just about everything! This band is really comfy and I tend to get irritated with things on my wrist. I like that the velcro doesn't fray from use and it also doesn't slip right off due to the plastic tab at the end of the band. Overall great buy!

    This is a really cute band for the Apple Watch. I like the velcro so you don’t have to adjust the size in a hole. My wrist is really small though and the edge hangs over a bit. I like the design, I just wish they had actual sizes like small, medium or large.

    I have small wrist and had bought a different band that didn’t fit as it had the buckle type. This one is velcro close and I like there is no end sticking out. Fits securely. Very light weight and flexible. Used with my rose gold Apple Watch looks very good.

    My wife forgot she bought this strap till she found it in the bottom of a bag... now she won’t take it off! Loves that it is flexible for exercising and breathable and more adjustable than the straps with holes.

    I love this band. Velcro doesn’t slip and band is very comfortable. I got this one instead of more expensive Apple band with plans to upgrade if I liked it. I like it so much no need to spend money on upgrade. Had it for several months and holding up great!

    I wanted a good nylon band for my Apple watch but preferred not to pay $50 for the Apple strap. This one looks like the Apple strap, works like the Apple strap and costs much less than the Apple strap. It is lightweight, comfortable, and secure.

    This watch band is pretty comfortable and dries quickly after a workout. The band doesn't just Velcro on, but goes through a loop first. So it is a little inconvenient to undo the loop to charge or take on/off the watch.

    I personally didn’t like the original band the 38mm Apple Watch came with. I have a very active lifestyle and this band has given me zero problems and all comfort. The Velcro is excellent and has shown its durability through the rain, dirt and sand.

    I love my new band! I was nervous the velcro would be uncomfortable, but I was wrong, I barely notice it's there. The factory band was very uncomfortable for me, especially at work and hot yoga. This band stays put and doesn't slip or feel sticky at all!

    Good price, but doesn’t stay locked In to watch. My wife has had this for 2 weeks and when putting a bumper guard on the watch and reconnecting the band, it will not lock in to place making it un-secure.

    I had trouble fastening the band on my Apple Watch. I went on Amazon and purchased the magnetic band. It was great but started showing a lot of wear. I purchased this one and just love it. Easy to put on —looks great —fits well !!!

    I purchased this for my daughter and sales person assured me it was the right size for the watch. Got it and put it on and it was for the 38 not the 40. Other than that, she likes it.
