    Any body else find the sport loop band to be uncomfortable? Its not unbearable just not as comfortable as I thought it would be.

    It's very comfortable imo. But I just find them cheaply made.

    If the Sports Loop, I'm all in and have 5. I do have 5 Sports Bands also. However the Loop is SOOOO much more comfortable and adjustable. Can't image how there could be a more comfortable band unless they made one out of cotton.

    I just got a sport loop and love it! I also got a couple of third part sport loops to check them out and so far so good!

    My last watch I got a third party sport loop and I loved it as well for my series 4 watch I went with the seashell white sport loop from apple and I think its a lot less comfortable than the third party bands.

    Way more comfortable than the band. I’m rocking the Nike black loop.

    I like the sport loops. But my all-time favorite band is the black/gray nylon I received with my original AW S0. I still have it and wear it often!

    I didn't know what Ben Lovejoy from 9to5mac meant when he said it didn't look like a band that suited a $429 watch until I got mine.

    It's super comfortable, and I would probably wear it to swim or at the beach, but I prefer the sport bands for daily wear and Milanese to dress it up.

    I recently worked a a store. More and more I saw the loops on wrists. Not just for casual use. The black loops look great especially with the gold.

    I can see the black and gold looking good. Maybe it's just the plainness of my Space Gray Aluminum with the black loop.

    Blues and blacks look good with the space gray and gold.
    I have the SBSS and the I enjoy any colored band othe than lighter color bands.
    Reds, blues and blacks are my preference

    I have 2 Nike-style knockoff band from Amazon that really pop and are my current favorites. One is black with blue highlights, and the other is black with red highlights.

    The sport bands have always seemed so tacky and toy like for an AW versus the loop imo but thats why we have options!

    Not nearly as stylish as colored silicone with holes punched in it, i guess.

    I’ll probably get a leather band but, other than that, I have no desire for anything other than a sport loop.

    I find it to be the MOST comfortable band, although I’ll agree with a previous post that they can feel cheaply made.

    What’s funny is I see it as the opposite, but then again it also comes down how one pairs the colors to the cases too. I’ve seen some awful sport band pairings, while the black sport loop seems to photograph very well. The loop always felt off and looked off to me, whereas the band curves flush into the case, fits the futuristic design and is much more durable and easier to clean/maintain. Personal preference, I suppose.

    I certainly find the sport loop to be comfortable. Although I prefer the sport band though.

    I have a grey sport loop with an SS S0 that my son gave me. He had it since release. Still looks great.

    I now have a black loop with my gold SS S4.

    I don't think they feel cheap and I usually never even know I have it on.

    Sport Loop I think is the most comfortable band out there!

    The sport loop is the best overall band. It’s very comfortable, durable and has great color options. I don’t understand people finding the quality bad. For what it is, is the best.
