    Got my first Nike sport band today and noticed the sizing is different than the regular sport bands.

    Regular sport band fits me perfect using the forth hole from the end. The Nike sport band is too loose using the forth hole and pretty tight using the third hole.

    Held them together and the holes on the Nike sport band are a little off and do not line up with the regular sport band.

    These are genuine bands purchased direct from Apple.

    Are all Nike bands like this or do I have a defective one?

    My Nike Platinum Black sport band is the same way. Just the way it is.

    What I found is that Nike band stretches after a little use and now it's in the 4th slot like my other sports bands. I had to use the 5th hole when I started.

    I own a few Sport Bands and a few Nike SBs and just compared them. The Nike's holes seem to start a fraction further down than the regular Sport Band, and are spaced slightly tighter. I can't say I've noticed when wearing them, however.

    I bought a nike band for my AW after getting it with the sports band (Apple). Same thing, the Nike one is a little bigger I guess because I have to use the 4th slot. I find my wrist cools off a lot easier with the holes in the band, though I like the look of the sports band better.
