    Easily detaches

    The band enters through a loop like the band that comes with the Apple Watch does and adjusts to your desired position, but after you attach the dot to the band, it is not secured by anything else. If you rub the end of the band near the dot it will EASILY DETACH. It happened to me a few times so I planned on returning it, but before I could it happened again and fell off with the Apple Watch attached of course and caused the Apple Watch to fall from waist high face down and shattered the screen. There is nothing Apple will do to repair it without $300 and there is no customer service for the NEXT sport band for Apple Watch. This is the worst band and I hope that Best Buy will stop carrying the item in stores and online.

    Aesthetically good, but not functional

    I bought this thinking it would work very similar to an Apple band but the back isn’t the same. The picture in the packaging is very misleading and the back of the band where you close it is different than the Apple bands. The little pin that is supposed to adjust the sizing instead of poking out towards the outside pokes into your wrist and is very uncomfortable.

    There’s a reason it was discounted

    Bought this for my wife’s Apple Watch bc she liked the color, but that’s about all she likes about it at this point. The construction is fair, but the design is flawed bc anytime my wife’s watch band grazes an object, the snap comes undone very easily. She’s already had several near accidents where her new watch would’ve dropped. We’re putting the OEM band back on before the next near drop.

    Picked this up as a gift and was not impressed. The band seemed like it was made well, but the fit where the band meets the watch was not right. It did not feel like it "attached" well to the watch and seemed loose compared to the standard Apple Band. This will be going back for a higher quality band.

    DO NOT BUY BANDS THAT ARE NOT MADE BY APPLE. I got this for my mom and she called me and told me it was stuck. The band was stuck in the compartment where the band goes. I looked up how to fix it. Put the whole watch in the freezer. It is worth the extra money to buy the apple made bands than off brand.

    Whoever Designed this designed it backwards so the watch is constantly coming unbuckled. Maybe fit for a non active individual but I’m constantly using my hands at my job so it wasn’t a good product for me. If it was designed like the apple bands are than it would have been ok.

    This band broke after less than 2 months. The metal latch clip came off. Besides that it’s slightly too wide for the 38mm. You’re better off buying the real authentic Apple Watch band. I recommend buying it at the Apple store because Best Buy doesn’t accept returns after 14 days even if it’s defective.

    At first sight, I thought this might work. The watchband is soft and the color is beautiful! Unfortunately, the Watch band design is horrible! The clasp releases and the watch falls off my wrist. Luckily, I work from home and did not lose it. Will not purchase again.

    Good quality band, but comes undone easily

    Like a lot of other reviews have said, it’s a nice band...buttt the way it closes causes the end of the band to hang out, which easily gets caught and hit on things that makes it come undone. I’ve lost my watch once so far, and luckily found it in my house. Definitely would not purchase one of these bands again.

    Not worth it

    I bought this in hopes to save money instead of buying an apple brand band, however I was very disappointed. The snap constantly comes undone even if the watch band is bumped just a little, and also I find the band fairly itchy compared to the original apple band. I would not recommend this product. Save your money and buy the real deal.

    A poor excuse for an Apple Watch accessory

    This strap is junk. It is poorly made and difficult to fasten. It does not work like a true Apple watch band and is not worth the $8.00 I foolishly paid for it. Since i am on the Best Buy "no returns allowed list" I am STUCK with it. hope you can avoid my mistake

    This Apple Watch bad almost made me lose my whole watch. It got stuck when I put it on the wrong side. I wasted 1 hour of my life trying to fix this awful thing. Reminder! NEVER BUY 3RD PARTY APPLE WATCH BANDS. Apple may be more expensive but you could lose your whole watch from a 3rd party maker.

    I purchased this “sport” band made for the 38mm Apple Watch for my wife. The band continuously falls off of her wrist and will not stay fastened. Almost cost us the watch as the band came loose unexpectedly. Fortunately we found the watch and threw the band in the garbage.

    The strap latches the exact opposite of Apple bands. The peg goes toward your wrist and is uncomfortable. It also latches on the outside of the band and catches on everything, causing your watch to fall off. Terrible design.

    Bought this band because I liked the color and price. But the design is terrible. It clasps from the outside so anytime you do anything at all the clasp catches on everything and pops open. I’m going to be returning the item.

    I bought this thinking it was going to be a lot like the Apple Watch band but it is not. The picture is a bit misleading and the back mechanism where it clicks together is backwards and the pointy end keeps poking your wrist.

    Although the band is made of durable rubber but IT is extremely stiff, stylish look BUT uncomfortable. The latch continuously pops open due to the fact the band just is not nearly as flexible as it should be. RETURNED TO STORE

    I bought this band because of the color. After first use the metal peg piece that secures the band around your wrist popped out of the silicone band when being removed. I was able to put it back in but every time it came out. Poorly made.

    Bought this band and the new design is awful. I will not stay attached and I have almost lost this several times. My step daughter bought the same one and had the same issue.
