    So I’m currently wearing the sport band 38mm S/M on the last hole. I’m thinking about grabbing either the sport loop or woven nylon next, but leaning towards the sport loop. From what I was told, the sport loop should fit because it’s more adjustable than the regular sport band is and the nylon has plenty of holes. Sadly, I can’t try them on because the nearest apple store is 2 hours away from me, so research and online shopping is my only option.

    I have the Sport Loop, I think--

    It is the one with the velcro. You can fine tune the tightness to any any position you want. With holes you only have those choices. I like it a lot. Comfortable---

    I wear the 38mm sport band on smallest hole also.

    The sport loop is almost to long. The plastic end tab wraps around and meets the watch body so for me, it’s never truly tight. It works but I’d prefer it to be a smidge tighter. It is the Ugg of Watch bands; totally comfy.

    The woven nylon band fit tighter but I end up with the buckle on the side of my wrist. I wish they’d make it in a narrower range of sizes.

    I did grab every color of the modern buckle. It was Apple’s smallest band. And if you just want to throw money at it, the Hermès double tour looks best on really small wrists.

    Thank you for posting this - that is my concern about the sport loop - however, with it being long, is that the farthest it can be adjust till it stops? Apple told me that if I’m wearing my sport band on the last hole it should be fine in terms of adjusting and finding the right fit.

    My fiancé has very small wrists and she wears the sport loop. She came from the sport band and says she absolutely loves it. Huge difference in comfort.

    If I pull the sport loop to the tightness I'd prefer, the plastic tab protrudes over the watch face. Thus I wear it a little loose and with the tab flush to the watch case. I have one sport loop and one woven nylon. Due to fit issues, I've not purchased more. Honestly, the sport bands fit best. Especially the Nike ones.

    I do agree that the sport loop is totally comfy.

    Thanks! I might just stick with a sport band and just get a Nike one or a different color, or get a woven nylon. Makes me wish the sport loop fit better for us with smaller wrists.
