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.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!
Sports loops are the sweatpants of each bands
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 can see the black and gold looking good. Maybe it's just the plainness of my Space Gray Aluminum with the black loop.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 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.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
Not nearly as stylish as colored silicone with holes punched in it, i guess.The sport bands have always seemed so tacky and toy like for an AW versus the loop imo but thats why we have options!
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.The sport bands have always seemed so tacky and toy like for an AW versus the loop imo but thats why we have options!
