What a beautiful watch face to waste on such a sub-par band. I was about to send it back but it wasn't quite worth the hassle. The band really looks cheap. Usually what sets Kenneth Cole apart from wanna-be's are the quality of bands, NOT IN THIS CASE.
UPDATE: After one day of use I DID actually send it back but not because of the look. The frickin thing stopped working half way through the day. I reset the time and looked a few hours later and it stopped again. After a third time I gave up and shipped it back. Going with a citizen or a g-shock now I guess.
