I was a Kickstarter backer and my stainless steel link band from Monowear arrived today. Here are my first reactions: Band is lighter than I expected; it's about as light as Apple's SS band. Be careful opening package because there is a pin inside that can easily get lost. The clasp slid in nice and smooth. It's locked on tight, and I'm not afraid of it coming off. Adjusting is definitely not as easy as Apple's SS links, but was able to adjust it using a watch kit I got from Amazon. "Lug" is not polished like the SS watch. It's more like brushed SS. Going to return my Apple SS band and keeping this one. Save me a few hundred dollars.
