    I got a Nike Band and it's superb! I really like it. My wrist can breath and it's not as sweaty.

    My only issue is there are vents on one side but from the pin on the other side, it's like a normal sports band and is blocking the vents, so in effect you only have vents on one side.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Apart from that, great band!

    I noticed that when I went to purchase the Nike Apple Watch back in November. It was enough to get me to walk out the door with the regular Sport watch instead. I often regret that to this day, but generally I'm still happy with my choice (just wish I had the Nike faces/color options). I'm seriously considering purchasing the Obsidian/Black Nike band, despite how I felt about the bands when I tried them on seven months ago.

    I do love the band and the bents and it's annoying 40% is covering your skin like the normal sports band. Just wished there was more perforations.

    I got the anthracite/black one. Looks awesome with the SS S0 model.

    Do you use the shorter band part? If not, you could reduce the overlap with it.

    I bought a knock off Nike band and just cut away the part that doesn't have holes.

    Use the S/M side instead of M/L. I have almost no overlap with the S/M.

    Agreed. I have a medium/smallish wrist and with the longer strap most of the holes on outer side of my wrist were blocked. Switched to the shorter strap and I'm using the second hole with minimal overlap. Lots of ventilation!
