Because that’s how Apple apologists roll. There’s a reason Apple users were by in large considered to be stuck up for a long time, and to some extent still are. That reason is folks like that you mentioned.Can I ask if you guys are reading posts? The amount of condescending people is staggering in these forums. I followed the instructions and got totally wrong sizes. Went to an Apple store had them do the measurements and they got the same answer I did. So what did I do wrong along with the Apple employees? I literally can’t wrap the measuring tool tightly enough around my wrist for it to point to size 5 and that’s the size that fits me. I could probably get away with a size 4. The tool measured 7-8. I also measured with a sowing tape and punched in the numbers and it said 6-7. It’s in no way accurate.
Just really confused what the issue is and why people are being jerks.
As thick as the Solo bands are, I think it will take a good bit of time before one looses its elasticity to the point where it affects the watch staying on the wrist properly.Right? Editor/Author of Macrumors for 2020 in this article!!
The breadth of detail and time spent herein should make Apple embarrassed. These bands (the non plastic junk) looks really nice but who on earth designed them? what material could not be used to keep the normal tension for a few years?
In a nutshell: This watch band is a dumb idea, do not buy it.That's the beauty of these bands: Each time you put your watch on or take it off, you are stressing the elastic fibers of the bands until the fit becomes too loose and features like EKG or pulseoxymetry aren't working properly anymore.
Then you'll have to buy a new band and the old one cannot be used for anything anymore. Hooray for sales!
Why would anyone buy a sport loop or sports band? If a person’s wrist size dramatically changes in a short amount of time, said person has a lot more to be concerned about that the fit of a watch band. And if that occurs, said person can get a different band to fit the current need. It’s not a big deal.Why would anyone buy one of these when adjustable bands exist? Wrist sizes change.
Apple is so stupid. They should have used only the "Sport Band" approach. So simple. So accurate. That was discovered by members not pushed by Apple.
Then perhaps your band is not authentic? What I did is clasp the band together at my notch. The I laid this whole band on the paper tool. I have to believe all of the Apple Bands of a certain type are consistent. But bands not from Apple or Nike could be an issue.
