    Just as the title says, I want to get everyone's thoughts on the woven vs standard band on the apple watch sport.

    Thanks in advance!

    The flueroastamer band is soft and very durable/comfortable. They clean up easy and can get wet. However, in the heat, they stick to your skin.

    The nylon bands are lightweight, very comfortable, durable. However, if they get wet, they retain water and need to dry out. Some have said the nylon can chafe your skin if used for exercise.

    I have both the flueroastemer and nylon bands. They both are great in there own respects.

    They nylon ones soak up sweat and can get smelly, can be washed but giving how dense they are this is a bit of a hassle

    I agree the woven nylon isn't my favorite for working out. But for everyday use it's great. Love the sport bands for working out or matching clothes.

    Personally, I am a fan of the sports bands. When the watch first came out in 2015, I expected that I would not like them, but they are my favorite bands as far as daily multipurpose bands go. I don't really care for the nylon ones, but I know a lot of people who do like them. All up to your own personal taste and what works for you.

    I ended up with the sports band, I really like it. It's much softer than I expected and (as mentioned) wipes right off when dirty!
