    I saw these on Amazon for $29.99 and Prime shipping, and with their easy return policy I figure I would give them a shot. Received them yesterday and I am happy with the quality! My only little pet peeve is that the band can shift so it's not perfectly centered on the adapter. The buckle is pretty basic as well, I think I prefer Apple's since the rounded buckle goes more with the shape of the watch and the finish of the stainless steel. But this one is flat shaped and has a brushed finish, and not raised like Apple's classic buckle. I think I will most likely keep the Stone leather one but I'm not sure what I will do with my black leather choice.

    I also liked how it actually smelled like leather out of the box! The Apple classic band did not, and it's more of a dull leather, compared to JETech's glossy leather. Here are a few pics and a comparison of the Apple classic buckle and the JETech. I would recommend these for an affordable leather band. Unfortunately the red one is only available in 38mm size.

    Looks nice.

    What's the finish on the adapter? Shiny like the stainless steel watches or matte like the silver Sport?

    The finish matches the Stainless steel

    I actually got one of these too! I'm really happy with it. Seems to fit well, and the material quality is pretty good. I took some pictures of the red one I ordered. It's for my 38mm.

    Wow very nice! So I see you also own the Apple classic buckle. After receiving the JETech, how do you feel about paying what you did for the Apple one? and which one do you prefer..

    I think the red looks really nice. Keep us posted how they hold up.

    We are going to see a LOT of bands in the months to come!

    The adapters came with the band. The loop has a bit more space than Apple's but they are very good quality adapters compared to others I have seen.

    Aw the stone doesn't come in 38mm :( ... I wonder why though. Unless the band widths are different...

    They had it in the 38 when I originally ordered my red one. I think they just ran out. Hopefully they'll have it again, since thats the next color I was interested in.

    Just ordered a red one after seeing the pictures and posts here about it, as an alternative to my Milanese Loop.

    Would love the red, but w/a dark gray or black adapter.

    All in all, I think it's an okay strap for $30 CAD. I'll probably keep it.

    I would contact them and see if they can swap it out, mine doesn't look that way.

    Thank you.

    Does anyone have pics of this installed in a silver Sport?

    Is it a terrible combination?

    for the 2 strap clasp (apple vs amazon one), which one would you say has less contact with the macbook keyboard when you type (or any surface when you are typing). ?
