The full name of the product I am reviewing is the Elobeth Apple Watch Band Stainless Steel Watch Strap Link Bracelet with Butterfly Closure Replacement Band for Apple Watch All 42mm Models (Silver Link Band) which is a bit of a mouthful. The price is £22.58 from Amazon.

If you would like the real thing you can purchase the Silver Link Bracelet from Apple for £449.

Looking at the photo above, you may feel that the strap is mis-aligned, but the reality is that it is not. In real life it looks exceptionally smart and is an absolute joy to look at on the wrist. For me, as someone who likes real watches, this strap makes the Apple Watch feel more substantial, more consistent and more like a watch. The stiffness of the links and the heft alone add a lot and it feels like the best strap I have bought to date.

The process to remove the links feels impossible at first, but once you get the knack it is actually quite simple. Simply push the included tool into one of the holes and pull on the strap. It will come loose and all you need to then do is repeat the process until the size is right.

The real Apple Watch strap works very differently and is much easier to re-size. It is also very very well made and is a brilliant strap, one of the best I have seen on any watch, but £449 it is not. Not in my world anyway.

There is not much else to say about this strap. It is very keenly priced, it re-sizes well and is sturdy enough to keep your Apple Watch on your wrist. I have some reservations about the buckle and how long it will last, but for this price it is a worthy addition to any Apple Watch, and for less than 5% of the price of the original.
