4.0 out of 5 stars Well... it's a watch band., January 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Voguestrap TX2225BK Allstrap 22mm Black Regular-Length Silicone Sport Band Watchband (Watch)
Alright, I wouldn't usually write a review for a simple watchband, but after getting this one I thought it would be helpful for those looking for a replacement.

First of all, if you're looking for a 22mm watchband, you probably already know they're hard to come by, and sometimes it seems you could almost buy a new watch for the price of a band replacement.

But what you want to know are the pros and cons of this watch band, so here they are:

Pros
Durable - the band is nice and thick, I think it could last a long time. The buckle is stout enough to hold up to some wear as well.

Cons:
-The band itself, not including the buckle or the watch face is a total of 7 inches and I barely have enough to use the piece that holds the extra length. This really is only a con for someone with a larger wrist, luckily I have a relatively small wrist.
- It's silicone, not rubber. I don't know if this is necessary a good thing or a bad thing, but in the short time I've had the watch band it sure seems like it attracts a lot more dirt than my old rubber watch band.
- The adjustment holes don't quite fit me right - one is a little snug and the next looser is, well, a little too loose. This probably isn't that big a deal, and since everyone's wrist is different, you probably could be as likely to have a similar problem no matter what watch band you buy.

Hope that helps. Good luck on your search.

UPDATES 5/6/2012:

So this band lasted 16 months. That may sound like a long time, but my original watch band lasted 10+ years.

It did stretch a little which helped with having one of the holes fit me right. But then the metal clip from the watch created a tear in the hole I was using. Not a bad purchase, but I'm going to try something different - probably rubber which may be less likely to tear.
