    Has anyone seen this yet? Thought I'd share as I've just ordered one, will be a few weeks before it arrives but looks pretty good.

    alibaba/aliexpress is all garbage. expect your watch to fall right off the band.

    I buy a LOT from AliExpress. Almost everything I've gotten has been great, from wigs to jewelry to handbags. It's like dealing with eBay - it depends on the seller.

    According to one of the poorly written reviews one of the bands includes the connector

    I shop on Ali express a lot too, bout about 70 items off there ranging from 0.50p > £70.00 all have been great and as expected.

    I paid £10 for this adaptor, I'm not moaning, it's worth a look for this much.

    Except there is no Click yet and like everything on Kickstarter, it won't ship for another year if ever. On a slightly related note, here's some bands you can get right now:

    Why? because you've spent money on it, and dont like that this is available for cheaper?

    You cannot say "Click is better" as much as i can not say "This adaptor is better" as you have not got one and neither have I.

    But needless to say, i'll probably be able to tell you if this is any good sooner. :D

    I'm in China. A lot of stuff from taobao is just garbage.

    Now that Apple is offering third party band guidelines and hinting at a "Made for Watch" program, I'm holding off on any third party purchases for now.
