Thats a pretty cheap official Apple watch strap. Especially if you can get it in the same order as a watch thats ongoing on sale!
What’s the RRP on these bands?
I have got this one for 44mm. Such a great band.
They're good. But I have found the $15 ones from eBay are just as good.
FYI… have 3 knock offs… and 2 genuine ones of different colours.
The eBay ones can be obtained for $2 at Aliexpress. I am not sure if the genuine one is worth it even at $36.
Which eBay pls as I bought from other sellers and the band are too long
Yeah I have the knockoff ones too. Id be hesitant to buy the real ones, but maybe someone will want it. I have no doubt it fits a bit better than my cheap one
I know the genuine "rubber" ones feel much nicer than the knockoffs (still can't justify their price though), but surely something like this wouldn't be 18 x better than a knockoff.
Any particular cheaper bands you'd recommend?
The knock offs I’ve had, and it’s a few, generally felt a bit loose to me where they slide into the watches body versus the official Apple bands which are snug.
For the rubberise sports bands I also find the apple ones have nicer materials. The woven ones such as the one in this deal are a closer match when going unofficial though and the material feels fine.
Certainly the fakes were serviceable, but overall my official bands are a higher quality compared to the fakes I own. You pay 10x as much for them but. It could also be the lot I got on Aliexpress weren’t as good as some other batches.
