    Hi, can anybody share with me their experience of these two type of band?
    I will be using the watch for fitness purposes more than as smart watch.
    Thank you.

    I'd take the Nike Band if I were you. Much easier and faster to clean after the sport. And the ribbons get a lot of sweat already, during the sport.
    But I still took the nylon band, simply because it is one of the most beautiful of all. Almost more beautiful than my Bullstrap 100 Bucks leather bracelet.

    Thanks for sharing. IMHO, nylon band is definitely lighter & more comfortable to wear.
    Have you tried washing nylon band with mild soap? Only problem I can foresee is getting it to dry takes a long time. Using a hair dryer with cold hair might speed things up a bit.
    Thank you.

    I've only had the Watch Series 4 with the nylon bracelet for a few days and haven't had to clean it yet.
    I think it looks too good to wear during sport. So I wear my old black silicone band or a green fake Nike band from Amazon.

    I'm a fan of the Bands. I like the way they fit, they're comfortable and the perforations in the Nike bands are are nice aesthetically and functionally. There's no need to dry them out, just wipe them down on occasion.

    The new reflective Nike Bands are amazing and I'm hopeful they offer them for sale to those of us who chose the standard watch over Nike or legacy versions of Watch. They're certainly comfortable and fit a wider range of wrist sizes but aesthetically, I find them to be hit or miss. The Black band I have looks black but also has a purple sheen to it in certain light and of course when you look at it, you will notice red, blue and yellow fibers. I would personally have preferred black. I also the older woven versions if we're talking non Sport Band.

    Another fan of the nike band. Just like the way my skin can breathe, especially when I'm all sweaty during a workout etc.

    Sport loop is ok. I squeeze the band in my towel and it's pretty much dry. Just for me, it's harder to take off and get on.

    The sport loop is great for workouts. You can adjust on the fly and easily get the best fit for accurate biometric readings. It seems like the newer sport loops dry faster too.
