    Have seen many look alike bands to the Apple sport ones, but the red that some call theirs is actually the rose, pink, mango....similar to the Apple sport version color. Has anyone found a band that is the same build as the original Apple sport, but in a true RED color?

    I believe this will be announced at the next show in September. Product RED to match iPhone silicone cases.

    Ordered the red 42mm. I've also been looking for a true red. I hope it is quality.

    So many nice colors. Apple sure left the market wide open for third party manufacturers. Surely they knew their bands would be easily replicated with more color options?

    I'm sure Apple will release more color options

    I ordered the red Strapped and Co band, should be here tomorrow. We'll see how it feels/compares to the Apple bands and the $6 knock off silicone bands.

    I also ordered the yellow Moko band, but that isn't back in stock until next week.

    Amazon: Strapped & Co. But only in S/M length.

    Just got mine from the Amazon locker.

    Verdict:

    It is significantly 'cheaper feeling' then the official Apple Sport band. It is made of a much softer and more elastic material. The tabs which slide into the grooves on the watch to hold it in place are slightly, a fraction of a mm, too wide.

    Overall, I am disappointed with its quality. I would happily pay more then the price of the Apple Sport band for one in my choice of colors as long as it is equal in quality. The search continues for me.

    Lets all hope that on the 9th Apple will announce a product red sport band. That'd be awesome.

    I received the gray one today, and really not too bad at all. Super comfy, super soft, maybe a hair thinner....but fits like a glove and nice color...overall good with it....red comes tomorrow!

    My red one came yesterday. I'd say I'm pretty happy with it, for the price I paid. I'd like to see some additional colors. I don't know why other manufactures, and even Apple, are waiting so long to produce additional colors. Apple even showed off more colors in April http://www.macrumors.com/2015/04/17/custom-apple-watch-sport-bands/ Maybe they'll announce them on the 9th...?

    The more I wear it the more coral it looks. I wore it into an Apple Store yesterday and its like only a shade darker. http://www.the-glass-co.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Shades-of-red.jpg I would say Apple's is the first, the Strapped & Co is the 2nd and I'd much rather have the 3rd or the 4th shade. I would think the OSU fans could even want the 5th one.

    I saw Moko has new colors, even a darker blue. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JP09DKO?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00

    I'd still prefer something darker. I'd say Apple's is #2, the new Moko is the 3rd and I'd like the 4th of 5th. I did order the Indigo and Orange and should have it in a couple days. http://www.color-hex.com/palettes/2538.png
