Just checking out and it showed as 'Red'. So folks need to check the colour.
I've ordered the black one, by back tracking the page.
The enter coupon is hidden away towards bottom of page after PayPal.
Changed to 0% Postal.
I ended up paying £4.05
33% cost of watch but still crazy price for real leather.
Thanks neo.

The unit seems to be held in place with springs from what I can tell from the picture.

This is good, if you go for this type of band double check you don't need to unscrew it with a tiny little screwdriver each time.

Use USD price, pay with suitable credit card with decent conversion rate - cost today = £3.27 ($4.29 USD) (with possible ~9% TCB/quidco).

So could be more closely hovering around £3.

Has anyone ordered from this retailer before. Seems like a new kid on the block after banggood and gearbest....

Paypal receipt went to "light in the box" who are fairly well established.

Their "about us" page says:

Received this today - pill holder is okay but leather - don't expect it to be top notch.

Is it actually leather, or imitation leather? Asking because "genuine" seems to mean something different in China!

Probably "PU leather" - a thin layer of real leather covered in a polyurethane coating.

I’m fairly certain it’s held in by 4 mini magnets, but as the back is held in securely once on your wrist (unless you wear it super lose) then you will be fine

I would highly recommend this type of band, if you go for an alternate colour band similar to the genuine black one they never fit as well and easy to come undone. This style of band is a lot more secure the only downside is the leather type strap isn’t as long lasting in the shower as the original band

There are different levels of leather quality, "genuine" is one of the lowest grades. The lower you get, the more the material is leather offcuts mixed with other materials and given a finish to make it look better. The finish breaking is why lower grades don't last well.

For instance, I have a genuine leather belt which after a year of constant use looks like a rock landscape because the finished has severely cracked along the bends. It's basically useless for something like that which is "on display". Since the Mi Band will likely be worn every day and rub from wrists resting on a desk, it's probably going to look pretty rough pretty quickly.

I have a similar watch holder but with a metal strap. The back end of the watch holder is held in place by tiny but fairly strong magnets. It's never come loose during wear.

Mine, that I'm wearing right now is the magnets and the back looks slightly different to the reverse on some of those pictures. I feel they've got pictures of two different types.

I'm happy to be wrong. I've had magnets and springs and screws in the past, but I wouldn't use screws again as it's a bit fiddly.

I finally figured out what 'pill holder' was supposed to mean. The leather lecture was interesting too!

God knows what that is. It looks leather but doesn't smell it. Thin material. Maybe I will be able to diy some proper band for it, dunno at the moment.

Can't see where to add the code on paypal checkout?

that is not the same band as these and it looks dodgy ...id not touch it,.. they do do one same as this that is real leather and ive a deal somewhere that links it. this one here is a good deal if the same as gearbest ones (it does look the same although it don't mention the brand ) but please be aware there is cheap imitations that aint upto much.. and the sambat linked is for sure one of those examples .

Perhaps you could provide a link to some better ones, maybe at Gearbest or another supplier?

first can i offer you an apology.. i was on my mobile earlier this looked like the straps everyone is saying burst open.. but im seeing on my laptop they do have a pin in the strap now.. although i'm not sure what mechanism is used to hold the miband in place... this is the one the same idea as the one in this deal that i recommended (i suspect they the same as i said above..or at least an unbranded copy of them) and available in black and brown and with metal straps too.. i've no codes to bring down the price (although others might)... gearbest.com/sma…tml one in this deal should be fine as far as fitment goes if it clips not magnets .. no idea what the straps like.

I've had a strap like this since January. I got it from Gearbest for about £5. I really like it. Its easy to remove the watch for charging, but it is held in securely when it is being worn. The quality of the leather is perfectly OK and it still looks like new. I much prefer it to the standard strap. It is a bit narrower than a men's normal watch - it is about 10mm wide, rather than 18 or 20mm.
