Figured I’d try a few third party bands, and see if I find something I like.

Anyone have any fun third-party bands I need to try?

Aliexpress Urvoi is a great way to buy.

The only third party bands I think are worthing getting are sport loops. The Silicone sport bands and all others to me are cheap trash

Yeah I’m not a fan of the silicone sport bands; no comparison to Apple’s.

I didn’t really like my Apple sport loop at all - never wanted to lay flat where it looped; it was a big gap, and I really didn’t like it. I’m sure it would’ve improved over time, but I wasn’t patient enough for that. ;-p

I got a third-party Milanese a while back that I really like. Even the Apple store worker couldn’t believe it was a $12 knockoff.

Mostly lately I’ve been loving my leather band from Apple, but wishing I could find some quality leather bands that aren’t so pricey.

I've used Aliexpress Urvoi and I liked their milanese, leather loop and sport loops.

The sport band was ok, the Nike like sport band wasn't

The fake Nike sport band gave me a skin reaction - something I've never had from anything in my life before.

The sport loops, however, are brilliant. I have a volt/black one, which I can't find anyone selling now. I prefer it over Apples - it just feels so soft and good.

I have a very cheap Hermes knock-off, but it's too large and feels a bit bleh.
