    Hi,

    I would like to wear my apple watch for medical purposes - mostly to remind me to take my medication. Problem is that it means to wear them all-day long and bands I have (Sport band and Nylon) are not so comfortable for that. Do you have any tip for a really "natural" band thats light and doesnt induce that tight feeling around wrist?

    Thanks.

    It might be worth considering the new sport loop band. The nylon material is very soft and comfortable, and the Velcro pads make it easily adjustable.

    Agree with testcard. Get the new Apple sport loop. Very soft, lightweight, comfortable to wear all day. Or wait a couple of months for the 3rd party knock-offs to appear, because as nice as the sport loop feels, it's way overpriced at $50.

    I was going to suggest a third party Milanese Loop for under $15 as it's breathable and easy to adjust during the day. Then I weighed up the alternatives, literally.

    42mm
    Milanese Loop 38g (El Cheapo)

    Genuine Apple Watch Bands

    Nike Sport Band 24g
    Sport Band 25g (!)
    Woven Nylon 10g
    Nike Sport Loop 8g

    If you wanted light, we have a winner.

    Thank you guys, I already ordered the new sport loop.
    Im a bit disaapointed with shipping time though - I made an order at official apple store (czech version) and it says 3 to 4 weeks, duh. Hopefuly it wont take that long.

    They're still new, so it can take some time. But you will definitely be pleased with your purchase.
