More durable to hold your watch, easy to lock or release.
Two-tone design is more outstanding.
Made of high-quality silicone, waterproof and anti-sweat, soft and comfortable to wear.
My original Garmin band had slots instead of holes for the buckle and it eventually tore out at the lug I wore it on all the time. This being holes instead of slots should make it last longer. The band seems more pliable too compared to original which feels better. I like the two tone yellow and black styling too. Not too in your face but it is noticeable. Definitiely happy with my purchase for the price. This seemed like the best option given the other available bands on Amazon.
As other reviewers have noted, this band is more comfortable than the original band that comes with the watch. All tools (two tiny screwdrivers) are included. I wish it had included instructions, but they were easy enough to find online. Getting the old band off was the harder part. Putting the new band on was easy. Looks great. Feels great. Happy with the purchase.
This is a solid Garmin Forerunner 235 wristband replacement. It's almost completely identical to the original manufacturer band. It feels good, doesn't snag or catch on long sleeve shirts or jackets. I am really impressed by the quality of this particular item. A good buy!
I was a little nervous buying a non-garmin band, especially after reading reviews from other sellers. However, I think I like this band better than the original! It's very light and seems more flexible than the original band. Also, a complaint I saw about other sellers is that the keeper slides...I find this keeper holds better! Now, I will say I was slightly disappointed that it only had one keeper when the picture shows two; but if it holds like it is now, then I don't have a problem. Definitely great value for the price!
Don't need to spend more for the brand name. This one is just as good or even better than the original one. The feel is the same, soft and smooth, the quality is the same, durable and functional. Personally I like the black buckle and the black back even better than my original band (silver buckle). And it comes with two secure rings so you can save one for later (and they are like the original, not black generic). Highly recommended.
The band let go while tubing on the lake. My son’s gps running watch is now fish food. I’m not sure why he wore it while inner tubing, he got chewed out for that. But I wanted to review just to warn others that it’s not as sturdy as it should be.
Perfect. Matches my old garmin almost exactly in color. No complaints at all
Incredibly cheap compared to the garmin replacements. Either way they are more comfortable than the originals.
