Priced at $90, the Brown Leather Strap is constructed from a full grain Horween leather and hand sewn in San Francisco. Each band is vegetable dyed for a rich, brown color, which will develop a unique patina over time.

The OVER RATED Apple Watch IMHO is limited and beneficial to Sports junkies for the most part. My iPhone is perfectly sufficient in taking care of all other tasks. Besides it looks cheap and juvenile as well.
You are 10000% entitled to your opinion and can say whatever you want but why would you write this comment under an Apple Watch band giveaway on freaking Christmas Day? Put aside the negativity man, just relax! Go watch Home Alone or something ;)

Negativity? Hardly but i'm really sorry if you get butt hurt over the truth. IMHO the AW is an unattractive glorified toy that has little or no use to most people. Regardless enjoy your Apple Watch and have yourself a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year! Peace! :)
Do you find wristwatches useful or rather not?

Someone on the forum will enjoy winning the giveaway. No need to be so negative about a product you had nothing to with nor will ever use.

A crude leather strap that looks like it came off the kit of Ötzi the Iceman creates an ...interesting... dissonance with the Apple Watch.

I like how it pulses your wrist for notifications and you can check them with the phone in another room. Saves your phone battery too since it doesn't fire up either the phone's display or the taptic engine. Same with simple Siri requests or Apple pay.

It's a pricey gadget that you can live without for sure. I buy them second hand and last generation, went from a series 1 to a series 5, the main differences are bigger display, double the battery life (turns out I don't like the always-on thing at all) and that I can read it in bright sunlight.

I put mine on my other wrist and put on a nice looking watch (for 1/10 of the price) when I wanna look classy. Only the "real" watch peeks out of the shirt sleeve because it's worn more loosely. My $60 Timex and $40 Starking get all the compliments, nobody cares about the Apple Watch. :)
