    Anyone else noticed that in the side-on pictures of the sport band, it doesn't look to hug the wrist towards the top where the band attaches to the watch which is I'm guessing down to the band material and the angle at which the band attaches to the watch.

    Doesn't look to be an issue with the other bands from what I can see. Wonder if that's going to feel odd when on the wrist and during workouts.

    Most new rubber straps do that. They bend to your wrist over time.

    You can also boil them to mould them quicker.

    I thought it just looks like the watch is too big for the guy's wrist.

    I can't imagine the band will flex that much over time.

    Or maybe that's just how the young kids wear things now, like pants that go below your butt? :D

    The person in that picture doesn't have it tight enough and it is positioned too close to the wrist.

    I have a few sport watches with "rubber band" straps. I'm used to this and don't think the sport band will be much different. Now, if I prefer a different casual look I'll look out for third party alternatives. Then I can swap out the band if I so choose.

    yeah and in a few of the videos, the workers aren't putting them on their wrist as best as they can.
