    I was able to get a replica sports band for 900php. Does it looks like the original sports band made by Apple? "Yes!" How about the quality, is it any good? "No!" Is it worth the 900php? " Yes! But maybe not" image.jpg

    Thanks for the info Doughn. Went on a Apple Watch Accessory Safari this afternoon at the 2nd Flr. Theater Mall in Greenhills. Got a couple of Lux Leather Bands by X-Doria for the 38mm and 42mm, a generic black plastic case for the 38mm, a Lunatic Epik watch kit knockoff, and a Hoko Charging Dock for the iPhone and watch. All for less than the price of a couple original of apple sport bands. Gotta love the place...

    Bought a SwitchEasy Case for Php 695 from BTB and a cheap tempered glass.

    I am happy with the case but not with the tempered glass. But for a 100 peso price, it is worth to try that kind of glass protector.

    ... not a perfect match but close enough. This would do fine as a replacement for the black sport band for formal office wear without me needing to break the bank ;)

    I was at VMall a week ago, and tried to look for original Apple Watch bands, to no avail. I'm looking for a Milanese loop for a 38MM. Anyone know where I can find one locally?

    I ended up getting a black leather Momax band. Pwede na.

    I believe the shop @cyberjock is referring to is Virtual Station (where I bought a Hoco band). They got a lot of Apple Watch accessories. Just ask the guys inside if they have the Milanese because they don't usually put the first-party ones on display, except for the Sport bands.

    There's also a shop at Theater Mall with some original bands along with some third-party ones on display. Sport band, leather loop, Milanese loop and classic buckle. And there's someone selling a 38mm Milanese loop at OLX.
