I‘m amazed at peoples collection of straps, do you change your strap several times during the day
i try to match my shirt colours, or deliberately clash... depending on my mood.. but i usually change daily haha..

If people here aren’t scooping up OEM bands on the cheap I applaud their dedication. :O
i've bought non-apple sport bands before, so far i haven't found any which is as comfy as the originals. Most of them are thin and rubbery.. So definitely sticking to apple.
Leather bands/link bracelets on the other hand i'm more open to trying 3rd party, cos some do make nice ones like from pad and quill. :)

I have 2 bands for my natural Titanium watch, gray sport band and saddle leather loop.

Question about sizes.

The gray sport band is to small (using the M/L part, and on the last hole), does Apple provide larger sizes?
If not, I fear my collection of colorful Apple bands might not grow by much.

The M/L band is designed for wrists up to 210mm, which is the same as the large Leather Loop and both are the upper end of length for Apple bands (the Sport Loops go to 220mm).

There are XL bands available, but only rarely and for a few (basic) colours. AFAIK, right now you can only get the Black Sport Band and the Anchor Grey Sport Loop in XL.

Hmm...too bad....cause I like some of those Apple bands :)

Although I might have to get that Anchor Grey Sport Loop as my saddle leather loop is the primary, but I don't want it to get damaged during activity.

BTW: what is a good conditioner to use on Apple leather bands?

Can someone post a pic of all shades of blue.
Or at least the cobalt, horizon and midnight. I can’t decide which I want and I don’t have an Apple store around to see first hand.
Also if you an opinion on your favorite blue that would be appreciative.

Left to right: Blue cobalt, blue horizon, midnight.

Cobalt is by far my favorite but good luck finding it.
