    Anyone recommend cleaning stuff in the uk that's good for cleaning sport bands? I have the blue one and where the strap tucks in it is going green and can't seem to get rid with water and soap

    I would suspect the actual color of the band is changing in this area and there is nothing to wash off.

    It is possible that Apple will exchange it for a new one. Does not hurt to ask.

    This is really good advice. I would not be shocked if they replace it, b.c that sounds defective.

    Glad to see they're replacing it for you... make sure to inquire about the best method of cleaning those - if that info doesn't come with the band.
