My New Apple Watch Band Made All The Difference

I have to admit my Apple Watch was falling out of favor with me. I had purchased the cheapest version, the Apple Watch Sport (space gray with the black rubber wrist band) about 6 months ago. I of course went for the cheapest since I didn’t know if it was going to end up sitting in my drawer next to my Newton, I mean Pebble Watch.

I wore my Apple Watch Sport for almost every work day. I loved the push notificaitons (especially for Slack) and upcoming meeting reminder (quick tap on the wrist told me I had another back-to-back meeting, yeah!). However, I started becoming tired of the watch. I wasn’t exactly sure why, but I started wearing my old school (non-digital) watched more often. The rubber band also started to become uncomfortable. Then, about a month ago, I got the new woven nylon wrist band…

Wow, what a difference! The new nylon band looks great with the white band on black watch, is more comfortable than the rubber band, and makes the Apple Watch Sport feel new again. I don’t know if the feeling will last long, I’m certainly happy with the purchase and my seemingly new watch. Although, it still bothers me to pay $40 for something worth about $10, but that’s not the point, right?
