    I picked up my LG G Watch R last Friday morning at a local AT&T retailer just as expected. I absolutely love the look of the watch and the updated features. (coming from the original Samsung Gear) I did, however, absolutely hate the "leather" band. So after some quick searching I found this band at the strapped for time website.

    Didn't see any 22mm bands on Amazon that were worth purchasing. Bad reviews, cheap, etc...

    Well this band arrived yesterday and went on the watch without a hitch. I am now even happier with the G Watch R and feel it is by far the best looking smart watch on the market today!

    Does that band come with extra links? I can't wear a watch with a leather band and I have large wrists. I'm looking forward to getting one of these watches.

    This photo is after I removed two links and adjusted the clasp all the way in. The website lists the band as 7 1/4". pretty standard size for a metal band I believe.

    Just got mine yesterday, how easy/hard was the process of switching the band?

    Not difficult at all, its just the normal spring pins that hold the band on. Pull the leather band to one side and use a flat blade to compress the spring and remove the pin. I used a staple remover since i was at work and it was all I had lol

    Does it work OK with the charger?

    Looks awesome. It appears to match the R's color scheme as well. Link?

    don't have enough posts just yet to link, go to strapped for time website and search for EC085, that's the one I got. Matches perfect and has a great weight and feel to it.

    I love the leather band that comes with this. Thick, high quality and very comfortable. Have no idea why some people hate it so. Awesome band.

    Thanks for posting the link to the strap. I suppose any one would work as long as it is 22mm with straight ends. The one I got is a little pricey but I feel it was worth the money to me. You guys decide what you think looks best, as least you can see what the metal band looks like before deciding.

    Here's the band I got from Amazon.

    Ritche 22mm Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch Band Strap Straight End Solid Links Color Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DKYC7TK...cUvbUpU4067075

    Good quality for the price. Fairly lightweight. The color is not truly black but matches the watch well. I have large wrists and I had to struggle to get the leather strap on to just the first hole. I didn't take any links out of this band but it looks like you can take out at least four of them plus a small adjustment at the clasp.

    I bought mine at an AT&T store on release day and I'm a Sprint customer. No questions asked. Its an accessory so no need to add a line. No different than buying a case or headset.

    These metal bands look really nice, but they tend to pinch and pull at the hairs on my wrist.

    i feel like your wrists are bigger than mine and i really like the metal strap. Is it possible for the band to be adjusted based on different wrists?
