    Great look, average fit

    The look of the band is great, but the strap doesn't fit my personal wrist that well (my wrist is relatively thin). Because of the rigidity of the leather, one notch makes the watch way too tight while just one notch larger makes it a little to loose. When it is slightly loose, the watch rotates towards the outside of my wrist, which requires me turning my wrist more towards to me read the watch when raising my wrist. I have had other watches with a less rigid band that contours to my wrist quite well. All-in-all, it is a solid product, but the rigidity of the leather makes it not contour to my wrist very well.

    Best Leather Apple Watch strap under $100

    Apple's leather watch straps look awful, (in my opinion,) and the Hermes ones are way too expensive. I liked the look of nomad's strap, and could actually afford it. It is definitly real leather and looks great on my watch. My only complaints are that I'd like the lugs to fit more snugly, and the finish is wearing out underneath where it rubs on my desk while typing. Overall, I find the strap comfortable, and don't regret my purchase. Thanks to Best Buy for their price match guarantee!

    This watch bad is super great quality. It feels great on my wrist! Don't buy somewhere else because if you buy with Best Buy, returns are easy if you don't like it. When I first put it in it felt a tiny bit stiff. After like 5 hours of wearing it, it formed to my wrist perfectly. Wore it all day on day 2 and it feels so comfortable. Looks great. Smells great. :) Loving it! This is a premium band. Expensive when compared to cheap alternatives. But well worth the asking price for the quality. And not the price Apple is asking for their leather bands. :)

    Purchased this as a gift for my husband and once I opened it you could see white scratches all over the leather. Looks like it had been used and returned previously. The leather was very stiff, which usually goes away with time after wearing it for a while but it just looked so ugly and cheap with all those scratches. I returned it and just got a completely different band.

    I hate the composite bands on fitness products and the Apple Watch. They irritate my skin, cause my wrist to sweat, and they are hard to keep clean. This leather band is soft yet durable and cleans nicely with saddle soap and kink oil. Additionally, using these products ensures the band is water resistant and supple even though it gets wet on a daily basis. Get lots of compliments from women and men. Good buy.

    Excellent Apple Watch band I’m very satisfied with the color and the durability of the band the size is magnificent overall I read it high among an item that I would recommend for others to purchase. Work in an environment where are use a lot of water and I’ve had no problem with discoloration or any damage to the appearance of the watch band

    Sadly this band came in the mail looking like it had been worn for about a week by someone then returned. The leather was very stiff which is fine because usually leather softness up over time but it had so many scratches that it made the band look old and used. I had purchased this as a gift so there was no way I could gift it to anyone looking like that. :(

    I've owned my strap for two years now, and have been pleased with it since day one. It's comfortable, durable, and continues to be one of the nicest watch bands I own. It has started to age a little, and taken on a more distinguished look. which is exactly what I was hoping for.

    Very nice, high quality leather. I wouldn’t normally spend this much on a band, but this one is worth it. The pieces on the side that hold the band give it a little different look also, which I liked.

    I have been wearing this leather watch strap for more than a month, I feel comfortable and easy to work with. The leather turns a little pale color at the holes where you put on and off the watch. Other than that, I like this leather watch strap.

    I've been gifted this strap and have been using it for a few weeks now. It's very comfy and nice looking. My only concern is that it may not be able to preserve its shape for a long time as I started seeing some wear in the notch that I always use.

    It looks really nice on your fist, but it doesn't fell like the original strap. It takes very long to break in the leather, and still feels awkward and bulky. Also, the heartbeat sensor will not work how is suppose to since the band does not align perfectly with your fist

    Looks pretty but the buckle is held together by a watch pin that is slightly too short and it flies apart no matter how many times you put it back together. If you really like it you could buy a better quality pin and it would work. Not really worth the $ in my opinion.

    This band goes well with everything. I just can’t get it to fit exactly right because one hole makes it too loose But the next hole is too tight, but that’s not the fault of the band. It’s made very well and is comfortable. :-)

    The band is ok. One notch it slides around on my wrist and the next notch it binds into my wrist. Plus it gets a little sweaty and a bit irritating in the heat. But I am still using it because it was not a cheap band and better than what the watch came with.

    Got this with a gift card but the color and quality of the leather as it breaks in is very nice and unique. Feels of better quality than other bands available. I recommend it.. nice contrast with the black aluminum watch case.

    Good quality at a lower price than Apple. Leather is the famed Horween so you know it will last. fits well even the 38 mm on my new 40mm Apple watch. Can't go wrong and I got mine on a open box sale. sweet.

    I purchased the strap for my Apple Watch but I did not love it. I ended up returning it for a different one. There was nothing specifically wrong with the band it was just personal preference items.

    Leather Scuffs/Scratches Easily

    My first impression was that the leather was soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, after only wearing for a few hours I started to notice scuffs and scratches on the leather making the band look old and discolored, a style that I am not into.

      Hi! When the leather is new it will scuff pretty easily but after about 1-3 months of wear your case will develop a nice patina and it won't scuff up so easily anymore! nomadgoods

    Not having to wait for shipping via online purchase is a plus from buying this in store. The band's exterior varies since it's made of real leather. Wearing in the leather gives the bad a richer (warmer) brown color.
