Which would you choose?

For me it's a no brainer my  SB link bracelet.

My Apple stainless link bracelet (the silver, not the SB). Out of all my bands (12) for two watches, it's my favorite.

I go back and forth. My favorite has probably been my brown leather strap from Clockwork Synergy... so that would be the one if I had to choose. Fortunately I don't have to choose, and lately I have mostly worn a black leather loop knockoff. I also really like the look of Apples new nylon straps. I probably wear my blue sports band the least... Mostly when I'm going to get sweaty, but sometimes just for the change.

Definitely the 20 dollar black Milanese loop knock off I got on amazon. Its actually surprisingly nice quality, infinitely adjustable, and pretty comfortable.

I have a 38mm AW so I had to go with the JEtech 3rd party band as there are no original Apple LL available for the 38mm. Dunno why, though.
I have no idea why Apple doesn't offer all the same bands for both sizes of watch. I have the 38mm as well. I guess the bright side is that our third party leather loops were a bargain. :cool:

Me Too.
I have the black one and just picked up the blue.

I was at a workshop and the person sitting next to me asked if the band (black) was comfortable.
They were on the fence because of the apple price tag.
No blame there. $20-$25 compared to $150, is significant.

Now if the apple Milanese was $75 it would surely be on my radar.

However, I am very pleased with my $46 purchase of the 2 bands.

For me, it would be the Milanese Loop. I like that it's infinitely adjustable and because it's mesh, it "breathes" which makes it great in warm weather. It's the most comfortable metal band I've ever worn. A close second would be the leather loop.

It makes me twitchy just thinking about only one band for the rest of my life! I change mine daily as it is. Given that, I guess I'd go with the light pink Apple sport band. I adore the color and comfort and it looks great with the rose gold sport.

It'd be my Apple Link Bracelet for sure. Any other band I have only last for a day or two before I swap it back

I have a link bracelet and a customized Di-model strap (that took so much time to research), amongst others, and yet I keep coming back to my original white sport band.

I have the Link Bracelet but recently I've been seduced by the Sport band. Feels great, easy to clean especially after a workout session, and it does look rather iconic.

Apple stainless steel link bracelet because it goes with everything. When I work out I put on the black sport band.
