    Hi there,

    Thought I'd share this with you all as for the price and what you get I thought it could be what many people are after.

    This was something I came across on Amazon, first time I've heard of this brand called Cotechs but for only £1.95 and around £2 for delivery, I decided to take a punt as I was after some covers for the watch as I've been using it naked for the past couple weeks.

    Here's the 5 colours included in the pack:

    These are all quite bright colours, pretty much identical to the colours of the bands that Apple have released for the sports bands.

    I like the fact that you can mix and match the straps really easily, means I always have a different strap on which makes it look like a completely different watch!

    It's got a nice silicone/rubber finish so feels really nice on the wrist. One thing I found with the genuine Apple sports band was when you sweat or get any grease on them, they leave a horrible smear. With the ones in this Cotechs pack you don't get that problem.

    Here's just a few more pictures, showing the cut outs on the band. Can easily charge the watch and also get access to the buttons. (pretty much every case has this but just thought I'd mention it)

    Personal favourite of mine is the black as it goes with pretty much anything! But the other colours, as embarrassing as this may sound. I have on occasions matched the watch strap to the colours of my sneaks! Some may that's cringe, but I say its cool :cool:

    This cotechs pack for the price, it's definitely worth a look for those either looking for temporary protection, or someone looking for something bright and vibrant!

    Sorry to be less than constructive, but the name of their company is phonetically the same as Kotex? :D

    Man, they didn't think that through, did they? :rolleyes:

    Does the watch feel secure in the strap? Aesthetics aside, I'd be most worried about losing it.

    It's already a name synonymous with protection, why not? :D

    Not my cup of tea but seems like a nice solution for people who want to protect the entire watch.

    A big thanks to everyone buying these bands in the spirit of exploration, etc. and showing the rest of us. But, geez, almost all these bands and adapters look pretty rotten. I'd be afraid of the watch falling out of this one. We're all going to look back and laugh at the junk being sold in these early days.

    How do you even use the watch? Swipe gestures don't look possible.

    That was the EXACT same thing I thought when I read the thread title.

    It is quite secure, I was initially worried about that as well but once it's in it's fine.

    So ugly!

    Why would you do that to such a nice watch? Have you ever seen a rolex in a case?
