    42mm Series 2. The Apple sport bands are about 21mm through the length of the band and then flare out to the 33mm or so width of the lugs.

    Anyone know of any bands that are wider than 21mm for a more masculine look?

    You want w-i-d-e ?
    How about Amazon

    Search at Amazon, they have dozens of replacement bands for your Watch.

    Googled and searched Amazon every way I can think. Can't find any bands wider or that don't taper from lugs down to skinny band.

    I appreciate that. Sure is a wider strap. Having owned some Garmin devices with HR and now studying the heart rate monitor on the AW, from the pics it appears this band would not allow accurate heart rate reading. Really looking for something that is as wide as the lugs all the way through or maybe slightly less wide.

    That does look nice, but band width is still inset to fit on lugs.

    I guess I'm looking at my Apple sport band and couple Amazon variants, and they are narrow throughout the band and sudden flare to 33mm lug width (42mm watch). Why can't the molded sport bands be 33mm or so throughout their width since the lugs are molded in? Still searching....

    This one might fit the bill. Word of caution... Lot's of reviews and my own testimonial saying that it likely won't fit into the watch where you attach the straps and if you have an aluminum watch it might scratch the coating trying to get it in.

    There's also this one, which I am going to give a very careful try. Same worries as the one above, but the reviews are better for install. Most of the issues center on getting it on your wrist.
