    Has anyone ordered and received anything from them. I am interested in either the red sports band (although not crazy about the adapter attachment to lock into the watch) or the red leather loop band.

    • How is the quality?
    • How is the feel?
    • Do you think they will hold up?
    • How different or the same are they compared to the Apple originals?
    Any picks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Check the great third party band/strap thread. There's even a spreadsheet showing which sellers are good.

    I got my red leather loop from aliexpress and am very happy.

    Where's the spreadsheet in that thread?

    I just used AliExpress for the first time this week to buy a band. This morning I got notified by LifeLock that my credit card had been used for a purchase on the internet black market, LOL.

    I've been using aliexpress for a long time, and have never had a problem. I've been happy with almost everything I've gotten from them (from handbags to wigs to electronics). The few problems I've had are taken care of by aliexpress.

    The spreadsheet is buried in the thread somewhere, I forget who was doing it.

    Thanks for the replies, I thought it was one Company, not a conglomerate of different sellers like ebay.... foolish me. I will look at the other thread. I just order the red band from ebay from freedomoclock09, who also got great reviews. Can't wait to get. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and not being to harsh on my ignorance.
