Having come from traditional watches, I was very ambivalent about getting the Sport Band when I first started planning my Apple Watch purchase. However, I was determined to keep the price minimal in exchange for having the opportunity to try out the first generation of this new device, so the cost of the Classic Buckle band that I normally would have chosen was out of the question. Now after 3 months of wearing the Sport band, I never want to buy another type of watch band again - - I love the design! It is extremely comfortable and easy to keep clean, but the best part is the tuck-in end strap - - no more catching the end on things. Once I put it on, it almost seems like it's part of my arm, so streamlined and unobtrusive. Brilliant!
