    You can get some orange sport bands from amazon sellers but my guess is they will be more vibrant than the Hermes edition.

    Similar to the red ones that are brighter than the original Apple red product.

    Yes, please do not edit it (color correct) and have neutral lighting

    Is the first one (left) the Hermes? I like this one best.

    I wonder how it compares to the orange ones on amazon (like Moko bands)

    Both are really close, but the Hermes one is a more "defined" orange

    Was the Hermes orange only available when bought with a watch?

    How much did it cost?

    Why doesn't it come with all 3 part (S/M, M/L) like the other sports bands?

    Hi , i have the Hermes strap but its too big for my wrist, if i purchase the Apple strap and use the S/L section and the Hermes short section do you think the colour difference would be very noticeable.

    Your pictures show a slight difference but you looking at them live is different then pics.

    You would definitely see a difference, but it wouldn’t be too drastic.

    OK Thanks, i might actually just decide to cut the Hermes band to shorten it so that it sits better on the wrist.

    Or just sell the Hermes band for a hell of a load of money and buy the Apricot. Seems such a shame to wreck the band.

    I’ve already punched an extral hole, so thought if it doesn’t sit well after a few wears then why not.What am I going to do with the strap anyway.But didn’t think about selling the strap.

    It is a real shame that they skimp on a single band , make us pay extra for cell only model and we still buy the product.

    I also emailed Hermès over a week ago on the possibility of purchasing a small band , I have not even had a reply from them.What poor customer service.

    The Hermes sport band comes only with the Hermes AW. Never sold separately except on eBay or the like, usually for $150-200.

    The 42/44 come with the M/L, the 38/40 come with the S/M. Reason? They don't want you selling the piece you don't need, making them slightly less exclusive (not that you can't sell the entire band, but you're more likely to sell a piece you don't need).

    I agree that for the price they should at least offer the option to choose which size you want.

    I presume you must have the 42/44 watch. Does the leather band fit or did you have to punch holes in that too? I'm considering a Hermes single tour band but I'm worried it will be too big. I normally wear a sports band s/m on the middle of the 7 holes.

    Hi , Yes I had to punch 2 new holes. I got the deployment buckle and initially thought I had made the wrong choice,but on the first day it self the strap was really comfortable.I wear the s/m band on the 4th last hole FYI.
