Knockoff Apple Watch bands tested

Buying a full-price Sport Band for my Apple Watch ($49) is probably one of the dumbest financial decisions I’ve ever made. Sure, it’s a nice band, and I did want a workout-ready alternative to the fancy Milanese Loop I picked out when I bought the first-gen Apple Watch in 2015. But I just bought another sport band that’s equally nice—in fact it seems downright identical—on Amazon, for less than $10.

Then I bought two more bands, a nylon strap and a lovely red leather band, and still came in under $48, shipped. Obviously I’m never buying a band at the Apple Store again… More at Macworld.

People complain about Apple pricing in general, often without justification, but all official Apple Watch bands are almost offensive when it comes to cost. Buy a knockoff band from Amazon- every one I have purchased for less than £10 has worked fine.
