I've been searching for additional watch bands for my SS AW2. I currently have the White sport band that came with my AW2 and recently bought the black Nike sport band. So far it seems to be the White sport band is the spongiest, which is perhaps why it's the heaviest. The Nike sport band fits differently than the regular sport band because the band hole layout is different. I like how all the sport bands are somewhat rigid which means I can wear it loose and it keeps its round shape instead of flopping over like the Milanese would. Many of the sports band are sold out or with limited availability. Any idea why Apple so many colors are often sold out? Why isn't Apple ramping up production if there's this strong desire for bands? And found out many colors get discontinued. If you see a band color or style you like I would buy it right then and there since it may not be available when you want it. I thought I'd wait until one of my bands got more worn out and then purchase the sport band I was intrigued by, but it may not be around when I'm ready to purchase. I had the Milanese with SS AW0 and it was very comfortable, but over time the magnetic lost its strength and it was a little annoying that I had to adjust it through out the day. The black Milanese scratches. It scratch the ceramic back after only two days of wearing it and I was very gentle taking my AW off and on. But there's a level of magnetic attractiveness with the SS body of AW so it's hard to keep the black Milanese from touching the ceramic back, and scratching it. The SS link bracelet looks great and it is very comfortable to wear, but I read it scratches easily and it's $450, plus Apple says it's not even water resistant. I took out some the links that make the band longer or shorter and it's very easy to do. Some link need an extra to pull it out, but it's easily adjustable. The butterfly clasp is nice. Opening and snapping shut the butterfly clasp is easy and with a nice positive click. Maybe the link bracelet is not water resistant because it's easy for water to be trapped in those links I didn't like the nylon for comfort, but an Apple store rep said the nylon needs time to break-in. I never considered leather as I thought it was too delicate and suspectible to water damage, but an Apple employee said she works out with it and has gotten it wet. The only thing that happened was that it made the leather a bit darker, a patina she called it. A friend told me after wearing a leather band every day for 2 years the band begins to smell and he couldn't get the smell out. So it seems leather bands have a life expectancy of about 2 years. After looking at Apple's leather bands I wondered about Hermès leather straps compare to Apple's? Hermès is twice as expensive, but they probably aren't twice as good, are they? I'd settle for significantly and noticeably better. In any case, what does one look for in determining if a leather watch band is well-made? I haven't examined a Hermès band yet. Do you have any observations to add regarding Apple watch bands?
