You just have to pull ... hard. Probably a little harder than what may feel comfortable at first. It has a clasp on each side that comes apart and they're pretty strong.

Man I really like the way it looks. I'm not however on board with using a as band on a black body - just saw a pic. Not for me.

Hopefully they'll get the five link out in black

Just ordered from the Amazon link. I like how this one doesn't have that "loop" at the connector. It's more flush. I think the stainless steel bands with that loop look awful.

Expected delivery is 6/25 - 7/10. I'll update with my thoughts when received.

Oh yah that's the modern wear band that has the better connector I think

The click connector is like that. So you can I theory add it to whatever band.

I have the 3 and 5 bead band, not having the loop type connector is one of the things I like better about the 5 bead. But at the price both are a great value.

Looking


Looking at the connector, this one has a loop like one that would be found on a leather band




While this one has a connector more like the Apple branded stainless band




I much prefer the connector of the second

I saw this one on Amazon and that it's in stock on June 22. It's made by JETech. I might grab one, I prefer that style connector too.

Just wore my 5 bead for the first time after it broke and it managed to stay on, I shook my wrist hard to see if it would stay. and put a little tape until my new adapters come in lol.

I have both and I thought at first the loop wouldn't looks as good but I think it does. There is still a gap in the 5 bead style pin adapter and the top is brushed SS where the sides are polished and this looks funny to me. Also the 3 bead is wider. Nobody else will probably notice the loop from a distance except the wearer.
