I have the Apple Watch Sports Edition, and it looks great already, but I was pretty excited about adding different bands to the device. The first that I got to try is this one, and all I can say is wow. It changes the watch completely, transforming it into something exceptionally smart looking.
When I popped open the package, I was taken aback by how well presented the entire package is. It comes in a luxurious looking box which is padded inside to keep the band protected. Included, you’ll receive the band, a new surround for your Apple Watch, and a cleaning cloth. Everything is wrapped up to prevent it from scratching.
Once I took the band out I found it very easy to fit, and best of all, the connectors are perfectly sized for the Apple Watch. My main concern was that with this not being made by Apple it would be a slightly wrong fit, but I was wrong with that assumption. Now, I have tiny little wrists so I needed to change the size. Surprisingly this is very easy. There are small buttons within the links, press your nail into the space just above each button and tug the lower link and it will pop out of place, then reconnect the rest of the band. It’s as simple as that, no tools required.
The band looks absolutely gorgeous. It’s smooth and well made and really adds to the overall look of the Apple Watch. I was concerned that the bottom connector for removing the watch band would be too long, but it fits nicely over the bottom of my wrist.
As mentioned above, you also get a metal casing for the surround of the watch. This is pretty handy if you want to either change the colour of your watch, or just add a little more protection.
Is the watch band worth the asking price? Well, compare it to what Apple are charging and yes it is. It is well made, a perfect fit, beautifully presented, and really transforms the Apple Watch into something a little smarter. I’d definitely recommend this product.
