Default Watch Band Replacement Gear Live

Hey, I'm thinking about getting a watch band replacement for the gear live. I was wondering if anybody had replaced it and had any tips or recommendations for me. I remember hearing that you might not want to change it because of the shape of the watch itself, but I've seen some pictures and it doesn't look bad. Pictures are awesome too!

I just did this a few days ago. It was really easy to take the old band off just with my fingernail, and any 22mm band should fit. Just make sure whatever band you get comes with the pins (or you buy a pair) to connect it to the watch. It's unlikely that you can reuse the quick release pins on most other watch bands.

Hmm. Doesn't look too bad in the photos. How do you think it looks, personally? I just ordered a cheap stainless steel watch band on eBay. I'll post pictures when it comes in.

I like it and think it looks pretty sharp. It does still look somewhat small compared to the watch, but the thing is huge, so I don't think there is any getting away from that!

That is actually probably a way better place for this thread. They've answered most of my questions already! Thanks.
