Differences with straps from other brands

As is often the case with many accessories that are available within the App Store, there are imitations of these products made by other brands. Aesthetically Some of these imitations are really well done, however, there are certain points that you have to take into account and assess before acquiring them.

Something that can never match an imitation is the quality of the official strap materials. Whether they are sports, braided loops, stainless steel or leather, the quality of the manufacturing materials of the straps available in the Apple Store is not achievable, and that when it comes to having a good user experience shows, especially with the passage of time. In addition, you also have to take into account the warranty that Apple offers on all its products.

Another very important point is the safety of these imitations. Official straps are millimetrically designed to fit 100% Apple Watch. However, imitations are usually not perfectly adapted and that can sometimes lead to a risk for the device itself.
