The look and feel of these are very similar to the one that came with the watch. One complaint about this style of band was that it doesn’t want to flex toward the case. However, these actually will allow flexing so the band comes down more on the rest just beyond the case.
In all, I am very impressed and consider these a great bargain. I will update with the hybrid leather. Those are the ones that I am really excited about and hope they work just as well for the cost.
