    I change my bands almost once a day. Haven't switched from my Orange one since I got it a week ago.

    The orange is awesome. More distinctive than the red, plus you can match the face to get that planet ocean look.

    Orange is my favorite color so I'm glad they finally made a band for the watch and the silicone case. As soon as I get a chance I'm going to pass by the Apple Store and pick them up.

    Yep, the orange band looks really sharp against the stainless steel and black front. Looks awesome on my 6S+ too.

    I've posted this pic before but since this thread is so full of love for it, Orange is definitely my new favorite, I switch between that and black but mostly stick with orange. Matching cover for the iPhone FTW ! FullSizeRender 27.jpg

    Really? Maybe so though it fitted ok. Thought the lugs only went in one way. Maybe a design feature, it is after all a cheap knockoff! I'll check next time I put it on.

    Definitely looks inside out. I think they can be inserted either way, though I wouldn't be too certain about whether the band would come loose if it was put in upside down.

    If that's the case, oops! I am a noob with the watch, only got it last week. A lot to learn (and way too many apps on it at the mo!)

    I'll try the orange (grapefruit) again and see.

    The metal bit that comes out when you press the button on the other side of the strap's adapter should be closest to your wrist.

    Actually, wouldn't the pin on the shorter strap be pointing the wrong way?

    Thanks to everyone who pointed out my idiocy! I put my orange (not grapefruit, dammit!) back on, the right way this time ...

    It was the end with holes that was inside out so it still pinned ok.

    Sheesh, egg on my face after proudly posting here yesterday for the world to see!

    The Moko version appears to be more muted colorwise - is that actually the case. I like to get a more vibrant orange

    Yes, a little less garish maybe, suits my taste. More 'grapefruit' even (dammit, it's orange I tell you!). I do like it though maybe if I saw it next to a more orangery one ...

    Thanks, though it sounds like my question annoyed you which I'm not sure why. I was asking about the moko bands and its color accuracy. So far I'm not sure if a full silicon band is something I want. Between it being a dust magnet and possible wear and tear longevity I keep questioning whether I want to be it.

    @maflynn: No, not at all. It was just me being wry, or trying to be in that the 'orange' I bought, which was advertised as grapefruit, is a muted colour. I seem to be on a roll with strap/band purchases so will very likely look for a more orangey orange as well!
