Thanks to Christmas and overworked post office staff, I received my red rubber watch armband only 3 month late. the idea was to have it for Christmas and wear it in combination with our red uniform t-shirts in the office. Now it’s January and I can compliment my blue t-shirts. I found the band for £3.60 on eBay compare to the £39 Apple armband. The quality feels almost identical however, it feels a bit softer which makes it more comfortable to wear. Time will tell if the rubber will cause allergies though and how it will hold up in the long run.
