The link I sent one person asked if they are weak and other guy said he plays vollyball with his and its strongHaha thanks guys! Etching I meant is there any markings on the watch that would say it is genuine.
The reason I thought genuine is better is that I read that the 3rd party ones had weak magnets and the watch has risk of falling.
Two sure fire ways to identify genuine- one lug has "assembled in China" laser etched on it and on the inside of the band there should be 38mm etched to indicate the size.
CorrectSo to clarify, genuine Apple Watch lugs that third parties can purchase have "Made for Apple Watch" laser etching whereas the lugs on OEM Apple bands have "Assembled in China," correct?
That's exactly the one I'm using now. I ordered the one by BRG 1st but it was prone to micro adjustments when I'd flex my wrist too much. I received the Penom yesterday and immediately tested for that. Thing didn't budge! I see why it got/gets great reviews!Why pay $100?? Get a knock off for way less like this, it has great reviews
The inside of the top lug has either 38mm or 42mm etched on it. The other lug will have Assembled in China etched on the outer edge. That's the only way to tell it is official. I attached two pics of my official one. Hope that helps you. View attachment 637045 View attachment 637046
Also, If you fold an original apple Milanese loop the mesh will not fold completely flat. Most of the 3rd party loops will fold flat at the mesh.
