Having wasted $ on cheap watch bands on Amazon that fell apart after weeks and having an allergic reaction to one where I got a burn that lasted weeks... I'll stick with Apple bands. My Apple sports loop has lasted a year and looks like the day I bought it. I went through 4 cheaper bands that fell apart in less than 3 months.

Anyway, wife and I like the new case colors - we're talking about picking up a few for the summer. Kinda fun.

These bands are too thick, have no battery or Bluetooth, no find-my-band feature, don’t support bandOS 2, nor come in coastal teal.
