First and foremost, I currently have a third-party black sports band, and I only wear it when I exercise. I would love to have it more than just training, but I can't stand the amount of lint and dust stuck in it. When I see someone else with an OEM black sports belt on a room gray watch, I love the look of it. Also, with the third party band I own, it makes the wrist soft and itchy at the bottom of my wrist where the lock lies. Does this make anyone with the Apple band? Also, anyone who has an Apple band and a third party band, I would love to hear your opinion!
