Last week I review the VIKATech Milanese Loop for Apple Watch. And this week I introduce you another luxurious band the Casetify Black Magnetic Apple Watch Band. This one is a replica of the Apple Leather Loop.
The Casetify Black Magnetic Apple Watch Band
The first thing you need to know is that if you decide to buy one from Casetify it’s gonna take at least 3 weeks to arrive in your mailbox. Because the band is shipped from Singapour via DHL Global Mail and after it’s handed over to your national postal service (LaPoste in France, USPS in the US).
When you finally get your band at home it comes in a really nice white box with a black elastic around it. Inside there is you long waited band.
Unlike the original Apple Leather Loop the material used to make this band is not leather but a plastic material that “mimic the look and feel of genuine leather.” I won’t hide you the fact that until the moment I open the box I was sure it was really leather because I didn’t really read the description I just looked at the picture (I know it’s bad and I should have read the description). So I was a little disappointed when I saw and touch it and it’s 100% my fault I should have read the description of the product before.
But after one day wearing it I finally get my head round the idea that for a imitation of leather it’s not so bad looking. It’s a little bit shiny but I guess with time the shininess will kind of wear out.
As you can see in this promotional video is pretty easy to put it on simply put the end in the loop and wrap it around your wrist and set your fit.
When I’m wearing it I have a mixed opinion about the feeling of the material on my skin. It’s not unpleasant but it’s not really comfortable. Maybe it’s due to the fact I’m used to the Sport Bands and to the Milanese loop and to the fact that never in the past I had a leather or leather-like watch band but it’s something to consider if you want to buy it.
Speaking of buying it, as I told you this band is a replica of the leather loop and it costs $50 and there is no postal fee. So I can excuse the fact that it took 3 weeks to arrive in my mailbox especially because it was a trackable parcel. The Original Apple Leather Loop costs $149
