I finally purchased a sports band and it's great.

My question is has anyone had one for quite a while. How does it hold up over time?

Thanks for reading :)

From my experience they hold up beyond well. I’ve worn the sports band almost exclusively for over 3 years now on series 0-4. They clean well. It will give A little the more it’s worn. I wouldn’t say it stretches by any means but simply loosens up which to me, makes it even more comfortable. It is by far my favorite strap apple offers. As for the hook and loop part I’ve had no issues the hole doesn’t stretch out and the end stays tucked in.

I was worried about his too, but mine seems pretty solid so far. The only thing I don't like is how to put it on my wrist at least I have to undue the band all the way and drag the hooks past the watch band lug.
