    Forum Readers,

    I am on the hunt for a nice black link bracelet for the Apple Watch. I have a Series 2 SS Space Black. I'm looking for a black link bracelet with the detachable links. I don't want to spend $400 bucks on the Apple one, but I do request one that is good quality. I've been looking on Amazon but I've been unable to find a good one. Maybe I'm searching using a bad description of what I want. However, I could really use your help in finding a high quality link bracelet for around $100 US that is black and matches my SS Apple Watch. Thanks for the assist.

    if you're in the market for a knockoff, you won't find a high quality one whether you pay $10 or $100. they're all the same copies, made in the same factories, with different nondescript chinese "brand names". some charge more with the illusion of quality, but trust me, they're the same.

    if your budget extends a little further but not as far as the apple one, consider these: http://www.juukdesign.com/store

    Nicho,

    I was looking for a band with the detachable links. Ones that can be detached without tools. Do any of the Juuk bracelets have that feature??? I couldn't tell from the website.

    I got a black link bracelet from BestBuy, their "store brand" variety. It was called "Platinum" brand. Came with the tool to drive out the link pin. I know you said one that doesn't require the tool, but at least they provide one for you with the band.

    All juuk bracelets require a tool to remove the links. You are only going to hopefully have to do this once and based on the reviews they are of good quality. I ordered the gray aluminum version for my 42mm space gray. There is a black aluminum bracelet that with a discount is close the $100. With the cost of these watches I wanted something that has some quality to it. I have seen pics on amazon where the cheap bracelets a link will break.

    Thanks everyone, I settled on the link bracelet from EOSO. I bought it from Amazon. It looks pretty good and feels like a quality bracelet. It costs about $75 bucks.
