My original band lasted over a year and was still going strong when the loose end retention band broke. It looks like it just dried up and cracked then broke in half. I ordered the OEM replacement band and just changed one side which is all I needed and now things are as good as new. One point to keep in mind. When you remove the pins to replace the band, you will need two appropriately sized flat head screw drivers as the pin is a two piece affair. They screw together; trying to unscrew one side only won't work.

I bought this strap nearly 3 years ago and it is still holding up strong and practically looks brand new. It has survived a deployment to Afghanistan and in my opinion it looks better than the stock Suunto Core strap. When I originally purchased this item I wasn't sure if it would fit properly but it did. Recently my retainer broke (that holds the slack) and after emailing the seller they sent me one for free! I will be sure to buy from them again.

The strap differed from the original. The color is a flat black whereas the original is shiny black that actually matched the watch itself. The clasp is chrome where as the original was black. I had to use the old clasp to match the watch. My fault for not paying attention to the product photo but if I had to do it again, I would spend a few more bucks and order from Suunto. I just didn't want to deal with Suunto anymore.

I bought this to replace my husband's original Suunto band which broke after years of wear. Even then, only the small band holding the extra broke, not the actual band itself. This, however, broke after only a week of wear right in the middle of the band. I don't know if possibly all those extra slits degrade from the integrity of the band, but I definitely won't be repurchasing this band or type of band as a replacement.

Install was relatively easy, since I had two tiny screwdrivers handy. I like having all the options for how tight to make the watch. It's also a little more light weight, not that you care too much about this while wearing the piano-sized Suunto Core on your wrist. Color matches my plain black watch. Not a 5-star review because: why the heck is this so expensive?

The watch band is fine, but far too expensive (~$28) for something that only lasts a year or so before tearing (like many others have said in their comments. I can't believe there is not an after market alternative. Love my Suunto, but I would buy one that didn't have such an exclusive band.

Great watchband, lighter and more breathable than the one that came with the watch. I am very physically active and the OEM band was always sweaty on my wrist. The replacement has slots in it that rid me of the sweating problem. Very pleased!
Shipping was surprisingly fast.

Almost a perfect OEM replacement. Beware if it is the same material as the OEM band you can expect it to break after 1-2 yrs of daily use. This is rather unfortunate for such an expensive watch, but I wont be throwing the watch away, so this is what you have to do.

Band worked well with my Suunto core, but it was hard to mount the band on to the watch. During the process, it always felt like I needed three hands to do what was needed. After about an hour, with my wife's assistance, we got it done. Otherwise, nice band.

Compared to the original band the light band offers superior breathability in a lighter, flexible package. Better for strenuous outdoor activity and faster drying. Thumbs up!
