    For those that have it, would you say that the $450 apple link band is worth the money?

    I currently just use the black sports band that came with my 38mm SS, but I've been thinking about the link band since it looks really nice.

    Edit:
    Title typo, Apple link *band

    Definitely not worth the money. However, that didn't stop me buying one for my SS 42mm. Well made, easy to adjust and very comfortable. I'm happy.

    IMO it's the best Apple Watch SS band period. Worth the money? Maybe not but I would definitely recommend getting one.

    It's my favorite band looks-wise. As for whether it is "worth it", that is entirely subjective as everyone has a different threshold for cost.

    If $480 is something you don't consider to be a large expense, then I would say you should absolutely get one. If you are sitting there debating back and forth, or have to "save up" for this item, then it is probably too big an expense and you should probably put your money to something more worthwhile. If you are not going to be able to make rent, need to put this on a credit card and won't be able to pay off the balance, are putting off dental work to get it...please, please do not buy it.

    To think about it another way: you could probably buy a nice ipad for the price of the link bracelet itself. Would you rather have a nice band, or an ipad? Would buying a $500 ipad be a large expense for you?

    I wanted the link bracelet as soon as it was announced, but didn't want to pay almost $509 for it. I ordered the white sprite band instead, then wanted a more premium band so bought the leather loop, but still couldn't get over it and bought the link eventually. Moral of the story is you will eventually buy one anyway so buy now lol. For me, I wasted $200 plus tax on the sports band and leather loop which I don't wear too much

    I walked into an apple store and picked one up the other day. I don't regret the purchase one bit. It's a really, really great looking band. It goes well with just about anything and it makes the watch look so nice.

    Easily the best band for the watch. Is it worth it?? Hmmm that's very subjective to each person and I'm sure if you can justify the cost in your head then you will definitely not be disappointed. I where it with basketball shorts, suit and tie, jeans, and casual clothes and it looks and feels better every day I put it on.

    You won't regret it

    Ok, I have resisted enough. I'm gonna take out my kid's college funds and get it! :eek:

    Just kidding...

    This link bracelet is totally not worth it. The price point for it is just too high for me.

    I'm probably gonna get a 1:1 clone of it :D
