Good quality 3rd party sport loops with no gaps.

Agree. I just got one of these from the seller and they are significantly better than the first generation third-party Sport Loop’s.

Too bad they are outrageously priced in the Canadian store, or I'd have bought a couple.

Any other sellers selling the same updated band?

How does the material compare to the genuine Apple version? How’s the “Velcro”? Those pictures look really good.

I have the Nike and obviously not quite Apple but it’s not bad! Velcro is good.

I ordered a flash sport loop from the amazon link in the OP. It arrived today. Pretty similar to my original apple sport loop's fit. I was actually pretty surprised by the overall quality given the price... with one major exception.

One of the connectors on mine is sized for a 42mm watch and the other is for a 38mm! Must have been a mix up somewhere along the assembly process. Bummer.

Oh no I didn’t have that problem with the 2 I got. Have amazon replace it!

I messaged he seller about it and they were very helpful. They sent a new one out with a day or so. Unfortunately, the replacent has the same exact problem. I’m guessing they got a bad batch of them.

Curious what color?

I ordered a band from this seller on Amazon in the UK. First impressions are that it's pretty good - maybe a tiny bit narrower than the original, but not really so much that you'd notice. The Velcro seemed comparable too.

I ended up sending my order back as the Black/red is actually much more black/pink than I expected. I've got a Seashell one coming today instead. Can post a picture later if anyone is interested?
