    That is super cool. Good commercial, too.

    By the way, my dad in law is STILL rocking that $8.00 band.
    You should really get one. Everyone.

    Most people on the stock band still? Not much chatter in here.

    I'm still on the stick band of the Urbane. Was thinking about Mode until I saw the price tag. Haha

    Yep, still using the original band. It is worn pretty good, lots of wear & tear, but still going strong.

    OK, so here are some pics. Picked up my Mode band today @ Best Buy. They didn't have the gray one so I grabbed black. It's not much different than the stock band as far as size and color (just a little darker color). Definitely expensive; I would not normally spend this much for a watch band but had some extra $$ right now so wanted to splurge on something for myself. If they were cheaper the Mode mechanism would be a cool way to swap bands quickly, but there is no way I am buying more of these at the current price. Also, if you have larger wrists these would not be a good band for you. I have to wear this one at the third notch in from the end. It does come with a spring bar tool in the package. Curious to see how the Mode mechanisms hold up with daily wear, they are pretty tight to close the first time.

    I really wish they were like $20-$25. I'd buy 3 then. Not spending $180 on 3....

    I agree, way too expensive for what you get. I hope the price lowers at some point. I'm guessing these are not going to sell very well at $50 and over. Two for $50 so you could quick swap them for a color change, that would be a good deal

    So my leather band is kind of beat. Called Moto to see if they'd replace under warranty. Nope. Great warranty support, guys.
    So I decided to pull the trigger on a new band: $14 Barton bands from Amazon.

    https://www.amazon.com/BARTON-Quick...1471012364&sr=8-2&keywords=barton watch bands

    I got the Navy Blue. It came in the plainest packaging ever. But who cares about that? It's been ONE day but so far I like it. It's a bit 'grippy' if you know what I mean so I keep it extra lose. I don't like tight watches. Pics next post:
