4.0 out of 5 stars Really nice. Easily worth the money 4.0 Stars, July 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted to put in a good review here, as the reviews that have been posted so far lack the detail some will want.

To start with, presentation is nothing special. Just a cheap plastic and cardboard presentation box. That doesn't bother me at all as I'm paying for a band...... not a box. In the box is also included a screen shield but it's a throwaway so nothing to see here.

The band is wrapped n a protective plastic which really does a good job of keeping scratches off the product. Also included is a small screwdriver that will tighten the small screws on the adapters that hold the band to the watch. What is glaringly missing however are any kind of instructions for sizing the band or a punch to remove the pins. If you don't have the right tool or know what you're doing, you could damage the aesthetics of the band. In my opinion that omission is worth a 1/2 star as you will either have to buy (or make a punch) or take the band to a jeweler for sizing. I actually used a wire nail that I ground down to fit so I got away with it.

For my use, I needed to remove 1 link. You can remove the links as needed and then fine tune the fit with a standard watch spring pin that is located at one end of the clasp. That will allow about (2)1/8" adjustments. This is sufficient to get it to fit "just right".

In use, the band is very attractive and well made. It is indeed going to be a lot heavier than the sport band it replaces but that is to be expected. It also gives the watch a much more expensive and classy look to it. Now there are a couple of negatives that I want to mention. The adapters have a little bit of play in them, and it is necessary to wiggle them around a bit to get them to snap in. They also are not a really perfect fit to the watch to there is a tiny bit of play between them and the watch. Not a big deal in actual use but I did want to mention it. Also, the bent rod on the adapter allows the band to slide back and forth close to 1/8" so the band may not stay perfectly centered to the watch. Also not a huge deal but with those 2 negatives I I deducted another 1/2 star. Also, be aware that if you are using an angled post type charging stand as I am you will have to mount the watch a little bit crooked to keep it from falling off of the magnetic charger. If you are using the type that allows the band to hang under it, then no problem at all.

All in all, a very good product for an item that sells for less than $30 with prime shipping. The prime alone is a huge plus, as most of the other bands ship from China where you don't know exactly how long it will take you to get your delivery. I would highly recommend but do be aware that you will have to deal with sizing the band as you would have to on any other watch with a metal link band. If you're not sure how to do this, either buy one that comes with the tools and the small jig, or go visit a jeweler. Sizing only will cost you a few bucks.
