    Am I the only one that wants to treat my Apple Leather Loop for the watch?

    Has anyone else thought about doing the same? I'm wanting to protect the band and make it a bit more soft and supple

    Looking at 2 possible oils for treating namely can anyone suggest anything else?

    I suggest leaving it alone!

    Oil could change the colour of the band. Also, it's likely to get more supple with age anyway.

    I've been told it can darken the trap but not by much, I'm thinking if I accidentally get the strap wet or spill something on it that can soak in. That's where the issue will be because it's blue the mark would show up as much as an Oil stain on a coloured T-shirt
