    Okay guys, thanks to my previous thread you talked me into buying it. But now the obvious question, which band? The sport looks nice but I also like the more 'professional'-looking ones.

    My question to you is which one do you have and/or would recommend for casual use (i.e. wearing to work, occasional fitness but no marathon running; no more than about $700) Also are there any other necessary accessories

    Check out the leather loop. Only accessory I bought was an extra charger for the office of which I have never had to use.

    Enjoy, Sir!

    The black sport band is tough to beat. At a few feet away, the black looks like a leather band. The leather loop is my 2nd choice, but it is a significant price premium. If you are going to be sweating in the band, then I recommend sport.

    If you're going to wear a sport band to work, black is probably the most professional-looking option. I have black, blue and white sport bands. I also have a blue third-party leather loop. I wear either the black sport band or leather loop to work and switch out to either white or blue sport bands on the weekends.

    Do you have a link for the 3rd party leather loop? I'd actually be interested in getting one for myself

    I use a leather loop as my daily driver and a black sport band for situations where it will be exposed to lots of sweat, splashing water, or dirt. Very happy with these two bands. Though I do lust for a link bracelet because it simply looks amazing. Maybe for Christmas. Likely for Christmas, actually.

    I have CB, ML and SB, and after couple weeks, CB is my daily work wear. I swap out with SB daily for my workout, and use ML for the night out.
    Personally I like the lightness of Apple CB with integrated buckle design. I believe Apple really have making one of lightest quality band ever have in mind when they design CB.
    I would recommend CB with Apple purchase for daily wear which work with causal or suit, and get a $10 sports band from Amazon for workout, and add ML or other luxury band in future.
