There's a big bad world of 3rd party watch bands out there.  Does anyone have any sellers on Trademe or Ebay that they can recommend for decent quality 3rd party bands that won't fall apart after 6 months?

All the third party ones I've seen have been noticeably worse than the Apple ones. What sort are you looking for? I have a couple of original ones I don't use in 42mm.

Haven't got a preference really, just interested in other options beyond the stock rubber one.  It tends to irritate my skin from time to time.

Hoco watch bands are awesome. I regularly get comments about mine because they are different to Apple and very high quality.

 

The fact they are a fraction of the price doesn't hurt either. Search DHGate

I have the same problem.

 

Recommend the sports loop from Apple. Very comforable, love that is easy to set the exact tightness of the band.

 

Used to use the Milanese Loop all the time. Love the design and the look of it, but the sports loop wins out on comfort, and it looks good as well I think.

Amazon. Just check the reviews. I have a nice black Milanese loop at present from these guys -https://www.amazon.com/KYISGOS-Magnetic-Milanese-Stainless-Replacement/dp/B0799JBWPR/ref=sr_1_1?m=A3ULQUCFRJPLXB&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1532983200&sr=1-1&dpID=51DwfmGUpoL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

 

 

 

I've brought a bunch of different straps from different sellers on Amazon - I've owned every series Apple Watch since it was released. Never had any issues with aftermarket straps.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.
