Great band for Gear S2 Classic - 6 Week Update with pics
Initial impressions are great quality. I like my watch fairly loose, but I tighten it often when working out to ensure good contact for the heart rate monitor. This band is very easy to adjust, and has more points of adjustment than most bands.
I'm using it with my Samsung Gear S2 Classic (non 3G) and I'm very satisfied. My pictures compare this band to the original Gear S2 Classic leather band. It looks and feels great. The extra holes keep my wrists from sweating as much when doing hardcore cardio, giving better heart rate readings.
Worth noting - the product description did not say it was reversible, but in the back of my mind I was thinking I could. Unless you take the pin out and flip the clasp, it obviously won't. Even then, the quick release would be visible. An oversight on my part. Not a main consideration for buying, just something I didn't think through all the way.
Update: 3 weeks of intense cardio workouts and its holding up well. Looks brand new, wrists don't sweat as much as with the leather band. Clasp offers a quick and easy adjustment during cardio to tighten/loosen to allow more accurate heart rate readings.

Update: 6 Week Review - minor breakage. The holes, while very nice, helpful with reducing sweat during workouts, and stylish, do weaken the integrity of the band. With a lot of adjustments and on/off of the watch over 6 weeks, the band tore. It's not even noticeable when wearing it, but as the band holder moves throughout the day it catches on the tear and can be a minor nuisance. I waited an additional 3 weeks after the tear to write the review, and have seen no further damage to it. It hasn't worsened, but I'm not sure what caused it to begin with. Given the very cheap price of the band, I would still buy it again, and likely will buy more colors just to swap them out. 6 Week Photos added. Review dropped to 4 stars.
Update: 4 months, and no changes from the 6 week mark. The small piece that was torn is still intact as it is in the pictures. I still wear it at the gym, while sleeping, and practically 22 hours of the day without any problem. Holding up strong.

Great band for workouts
I bought this watch band to use while I am working out. My first impressions are really good, the watch band is soft and study, very well contructed. The holes allow for better air circulation while im working out. I noticed with the leather bands that the Gear 2 classic comes with make my wrist really sweaty and the bands would get drenched, not with this band. The black and blue colors are nice, really easy to install.

Great replacement band for the Gear S2 Classic!
By Eusebio G.
This band has great looks and installs easily, using the same spring-loaded system as the factory bands. These are a great replacement, as the material is more comfortable and durable (especially if you are using your Gear S2 Classic in extreme conditions) than the factory leather bands. I am very pleased with this product.
