When the first time I saw the leather loop on apple's website, I thought it is ugly. But I changed my mind after the try-on. Then I was struggling between the black and blue, so I ordered both of them. The expected delivery date was in June but I got both of them today. The box was great. I couldn't believe that apple made such a fantastic box just for a band. The white plastic box reminds me of the white plastic macbook if you remember that. The leather loop is super comfortable. My original band is milanese loop. It is comfortable and I love it, but the leather loop is a different kind of comfortable The bad thing about leather loop is that it feels a little plastic, and it makes noise if you move it... I opened the blue leather loop today, still not sure whether I will keep the black one or return it(maybe sell it?) Any suggestion? ---------update--------- FYI, my wrist size is around 160 PS Apple says the blue band is in "bright blue", but it is actually quite dark. It looks great outdoor but a bit dirty when the light is dark.
