Which band is best for you?

What is awesome about having a watch such as the Gear S3 is the fact that the bands are so easily interchangeable. Although the included band may work for most, being able to customize and accessorize your watch bands can be rather enjoyable. Maybe you need to dress up for work or a night on the town, switch over to a leather or metal band. Do you want to switch to something more comfortable for that trip to the gym or on a hot summer day? Check out a nylon or rubber breathable watch strap.
