    I won't get my hands on the watch till 23rd (assuming that shipping date doesn't change).

    I bought different colors for my GW4 Classic but never find myself using them. I also have the hybrid leather band but from a distance it just looks even more generic than the ridge sport band.

    I got a yellow hybrid leather band with my watch 4, I'll use that.

    I've kind of given up trying to find high quality third party bands. I don't care about watches enough to do the research.

    I ordered these from Amazon. http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B09L18JH3...roduct_details. I am nervous that the band that comes with my Pro 5 will be too big for my small wrist. I will use the one(s) from my GW4 non-classic as well.

    My watch hasn't shipped yet, but I've bought two metal no gap bands that are both black with slightly different designs. I plan on sending one of them back (or both if the no gap doesn't look decent). I may look to get some sort of protective cover or watch band to help protect my watch during practices if my existing galaxy watch 3 protective strap doesn't fit (which I'm not counting on it fitting). I don't change bands often and if I'm not coaching, I generally prefer a metal band.

    I have an embarrassing amount of bands for my Apple Watch Series 7. I have found many of these on Amazon. I have also purchased some from Bold Bands, and Epic Bands. I am warier of eBay, but that might be worth checking too. Just be sure to read reviews!

    That's what I'm afraid of too. My watch 4 original band is too big which makes watch move too much lol. So the watch 5 probably be the same so I'm going to have to buy a different band in similar color(blue) from Amazon or something. Least I think the original band will come with medium/large size like watch 4. If my watch 4 band had one more hole it would fit better. But I'm not making another hole since I'll probably eventually get rid of it.

    On the sammy site you can choose whether you want small/medium or medium/large.

    The fit on the 5 pro is much better than on the watch 4 classic because of the flat bottom. but I'm about halfway into the large band so it may not help you much.

    Your wrists must be tiny!

    One thing apple has over all other watches is the ease of installing their watch bands. Samsung should do the same thing.

    I would rather stick with the Quick Connect that go to a proprietary solution. Much Larger selection

    I don't either, but I prefer the standard as opposed to proprietary.

    We can basically use Any 20 MM watch strap on the Watch5 line
