    So as the title says, who plans on getting the stainless steel version but use a sports band?

    I like the stainless steel one because it's shiny, but I prefer having those rubber like bands offered by the sports one.

    The base level $549 and $599 stainless steel versions come with rubber sports bands.

    But only white I think. Didn't notice a black one, or cyan.

    I think there was a black sports band option with the stainless steel one. That's what I'm leaning towards.

    You can get the stainless steel version with a white or black sport band, but if you want blue, pink, or green, you'll have to buy one separately for $49.

    If I get the stainless steel model, I won't get a rubber band; however, I think I'm going to end up with the Space Gray Sport version because I really want a black watch. Then I'll just buy a different band instead of the rubber, so I'm kind of in the opposite boat.

    Is there a silver black sport version? All I ever see is space grey for sport? Only silver choices I seen all are blue, yellow pink etc

    There doesn't appear to be. I'd think that would've been a big seller, though. It's available in the normal version but it's obviously more expensive.

    But they show silver versions with the other bands just not black. Makes no sense

    I am going with the $349 sports model with a white band... In a year apple will have made the watch somehow better and I will most assuredly want that too. Considering they all run the same base model is fine for me

    That will be me. Will wait for 2nd gen for other. Might end up replacing band though at some point.

    Hi. I was wanting a black watch with the lime green band. Since they didn't sell them like that I was going to get it with the black band and then order the green separately. In the meanwhile, I did a bit of Photoshop work and put the green band onto the black watch. It looks terrible. All the coloured bands look terrible on the black watch. I don't know if it's too much contrast or what but it's awful. So I will either be going with the black on black or green on silver.

    To be honest i thought we would have been able to customize the watch or atleast an option to (so stainless steel with choice of band or sport with choice of band). Dunno why i had that thought in my head...

    Otherwise I think i'll be getting the black sport version that comes with the black band... I wish I could get to see it before pre-orders begin but I doubt...

    I may, but definitely going to wait for reviews/try it out in the store before buying one.

    I was also wondering why they never showed the space gray with any other band......I'm going to see what it actually looks like in the store. Sounds like there could be a contrast issue.

    I wanted space grey, but I may just end up getting silver & then getting the black band with it.

    Have you checked out mixyourwatch.com? It allows you to mix and match any case with any strap and see what it looks like.

    I find that space grey with the coloured straps indeed doesn't look that great.

    I agree with you that silver aluminum paired with the black rubber strap looks quite nice.

    Wow, that's cool. Good way to get a visual on all the options. And it looks like the silver aluminum works best with all the colors & looks good with the black.

    Does anyone know the exact bands that come with each Apple Watch model?? I've been trying to see what bands would fit with what but no luck yet. Also for the Apple Sport Watch can you interchange the bands to someone else instead of the sports band???

    Awesome find!!! I really like the black steel with the brown leather. Too bad I'd have to spend way beyond my budget to get that combo.
