5.0 out of 5 starsGreat looking band for the watch, worth its price

You know the saying "if it's pricier, it probably had more value in it"? This watch portrays that saying.
Sure, you might find another band that's cheaper, and you might not be inclined to pay something close to a hundred dirhams on a watch band. But trust me, when I say it's worth it, it really is.
The delivery was done quickly and professionally the next day. After taking it out of the Amazon bag, the product's packaging was quite good. Inside the box, you get the band, adjustment kit, a couple of leaflets, and the steel bars needed to insert the band into the watch (you get 3 in case you lose one of the two needed to strap the band).
The band itself is very premium and of high quality. The adjustability of the band is a huge bonus point. It does take a bit of time and attention, but once it's done, you have a stainless steel band fitted just the way you like it to your wrist, which I found very helpful. Strapping it into the watch is easy: once you insert the two installation steel bars in the band, just align it to the watch's band holes, pull the spring and you're good to go. Taking it out is just as easy if not easier than strapping it in by ejecting the spring-loaded bar. Once you have it strapped, wearing it is easy. It is very comfortable and yet stylish looking. Using it every day is no problem too, and even working out with it is just fine (albeit that the silicone strap included with the watch is more versatile for workouts).
The band does not interfere with any of the watch's sensors or antennas as per my experience, and every sensor as per my testing, including the heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxygen sensors worked just fine. Do note that if you are rocking a very loose fit, then there are chances for the sensors to not work well.
Honestly, the band is of high quality, and with the kit included, the price is very justifiable. Sure, you might be paying twice as much as another similar band, but for the price, I think it's well worth it. The styles offered also suit all age groups and tastes, be it a classic stainless steel band or something that looks a bit more modern, so surely, it does justify its price and value. I'd recommend it.
