I bought the 42" mm Apple Watch with Milanese Loop and then also bought the blue sports band. Of course the blue sports band didn't arrive for another few weeks. After working out and wearing the Milanese loop I thought it was really comfortable to wear in normal conditions, but of course not practical for working out plus the constant slipping and loosening while lifting or even running. That is why I also purchased the sports band. After I finally received my sports band I realized it is a pretty comfortable band on its own and it was a hassle of having to constantly switch out the Milanese loop band for the sports band when I go to the gym which I do at least 5 times a week. Plus I like to run with the watch. I found myself not wearing the Milanese loop band for over a week. So I finally gave in and sold it to someone for the discount price of $125. I know I could have probably gotten more. So while the band was comfortable, beautifully crafted, and a nice band to wear out casually l decided it wasn't for me.
