Samsung Gear S3 gets custom designer watch bands
Strap Studio and SLG Design are now offering leather and canvas bands (opens in new tab) between $29 and $109 depending on the style, color and material, compatible with both the Gear S3 Classic and Frontier.
Of course, both watches are compatible with any 22mm band, irrespective of material or color, but these bands were designed to fit with the specific lug shape of the oversized smartwatch. In his review, Android Martonik said that the Gear S3 was great at doing a lot, but had the potential of putting off people with smaller wrists:
While these designs may not overcome that issue entirely, some of them are certainly fashionable enough to tip certain buyers over the edge.
The bands are available through the companies' websites in all countries, and through Samsung directly in Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico.

I'll take one of each. Bit of a watch nerd over here.
Some of these look great but nothing on these bands make them more compatible than 3rd party bands available on amazon. I was hoping for a cut similar to the OEM band that is wider where it connects to the watch and conforms to the lugs/ attachment points but none of them have that.

Same here, that's exactly what I was looking for.
The beauty of the standard 22 mil band is not having to pay outrageous prices for 1st party assories
