Has the sport band changed since they were originally released in 2015? It seems to me that the newer ones are more durable and feel like better quality than the ones that came out in 2015.

I have or have had all the sport bands, but I can't speak to any as to when they were made exactly. I can say that I had a Green original that was very thin and lighter than every other band I've had. I knew without putting it on the scale, but I did, and proved it was in fact lighter. That's the only single example I have of any difference.

My vote is yes. The sport band on my series 4 I just picked up is much softer and more premium feeling than the one included on my 2015 series 0 watch.

I think the texture changes as they age. I remember them feeling very supple at first, but after a few months they do become a bit stiffer and lose some of the softness.
