    I loved the bracelet of my Omega Seamaster - this is high praise indeed! Just not certain how well it would go with the SB SS. Looks great with your watch though.

    I haven’t seen a problem with the band locking mechanism. I am on my 3rd watch (S0 sport bought new, S0 SS bought used & now S3 SS bought new.

    I change the band twice a day during the work week. Sport Band/loop comes off in the morning to a Formal band during the day for work. Sport band/loop goes on as soon as I get home.

    Never had a problem.

    However, my Apple Watch is the only Apple product I carry Apple Care on but have never used it. I think it’s safe to say your sport band will show wear and usage long before any mechanical parts would fail.

    You know, Juuk used to make a black one of those. Too bad they don’t anymore because that would be the ticket for the SB SS. That said, they do have other models that come in dark gray or black. You might want to check those out.

    This band is surprisingly the most comfortable band I’ve used to date.

    My mini collection. More Nike sport loop bands to come; thinking on what else to add. I know I want a really nice bracelet or 2 and maybe a vintage or alligator/snake print leather.

    I’ve got a few different sports bands (product red, ocean blue and black) and the classic black leather band and I think sport loop might be my favorite. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now (used it with my SS series 0 before buying the SB SS Series 2 this week). I play golf with it, run with it. The things I really like about it are:
    • It’s light & comfortable: it feels much lighter than my other bands....you forget it’s on and the material is very soft and extremely comfortable.
    • Infinitely adjustable and secure: Can easily adjust the tightness right where you want it and it does not move.
    • Great for sports: Does not slip around like my regular sport band do when I sweat playing golf, running, etc... It seems to stay dry even when you are sweating while playing sports. It breathes very well.
    • Looks great with either the SS or SBSS (IMHO)....I’m sure looks great with the aluminum watches too

    How do you like those 3rd Party Hermes bands? I was thinking of picking up that marine gala copy- is it comfortable to wear?

    I wore the Eperon d’Or copy today. I’ve had it on since 8 this morning and it’s still on now. It’s a thin leather (no thick humps or stiffness) and comfortable. Feels like a basic casual band, honestly. Nothing high quality though. My only concern is the print longevity. I haven’t seen a real one yet to know if the print looks like that in person. If you notice, the print is faded in a bit, not a stark white contrast like most marketing pictures show of the actual Hermès band. So 50-50, but I like the pattern.

    I bought it on eBay because it was the only place to find it at the time - https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Apple-Watch-Band-Series-3-2-1-Genuine-Leather-Single-Tour-Eperon-Bracelet/162682807645?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&var=461693792659&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I really love the Epsom band. It’s the color and the outside texture that do it for me. Also comfortable leather. Also thin. I wore it all day last weekend since it was the first band I received. Took a chance on this Amazon seller - https://www.amazon.com/Maxjoy-Apple...ncoding=UTF8&refRID=KVYZ85FSA3X5SYVSEFDC&th=1

    I’m in search of a good Rallye copy, btw.

    Awesome, thanks for getting back so fast. Hopefully the print doesn’t fade, I think the official Hermes band may have slightly darker print to it too. Other then that and the buckle details it looks really good.

    No worries at all. Well that’s good to know about the band, thanks. I’ll see how it goes over time for sure.

    ...anyone have a pic of the new 42mm Black Stripe Woven Nylon band

    This is Apple's own pic on their website:

    I probably would have gone for this colour if it wasn't for the fact that the band looks more purple than Midnight Blue.

    Pure Platinum/Black with SB SS:

    I like the above combo but at the last minute went with Obsidian/Black. Kind of has a Batman vibe to it. :)

    The black watch with the white band looks real sharp!

    I was surprised to find out that Obsidian was actually blue! Usually obsidian refers to a shade of black.

    Yeah, me too. I walked into the store thinking it would be black and was surprised to find it was blue. I may very well add the Pure Platinum band to the lineup as well.
