Weird dots on Sport bands

Hello everyone,

I recently started collecting sport bands but I’m facing a major annoyance. A fair share of the bands I purchase often show weird black (or sometimes white) dots. The white ones look like the color is missing while the black ones seem like stains that cannot be removed with water/magic eraser and such. I want to specify that I’m referring to official bands purchased in Apple stores.

Anyone experiencing this? Any way to resolve the issue? They’re tiny but I’m a bit obsessive about these kind of stuff and it irks me to have a ‘faulty’ band after paying the full price (and I’m also tired of returning them until I get a pristine one).

Thanks in advance!

I have not run across this yet but will be taking a look now that you mention it. Best advise I can offer is return it to Apple if you're not happy with it. Then inspect the new one to make sure you're not having the same issue.
