    Wondering if anyone has both and could comment on the difference in size between the bands. Particularly the width. Pictures if you have them.

    There has been talk that the classic buckle is slim and the sports gives it more of a substantial look..wondering if this is true.

    Had both - classic buckle by far the better band. So comfy and classier looking. The classic buckle is about 21mm thick. I don't have the sport band anymore so would say it's about 30mm.

    The material itself is nice. I don't have complaints about it like others here do. What I find, is since I am used to wearing wide banded watches. That it's very narrow. It seems more suited for a woman's arm IMO.

    Or you could gold plate your Apple watch (saw a YouTube video of the result), in that thread:

    You'll look like $10k (with your current band) for 1/10th the cost

    Gold plate a classic band like I got? I had the 38mm, I'm getting rid of it cause the bands look very feminine in size. So I went ahead and just got a 42mm off of swappa. Paid a little more in doing so. But at least I know those will have a band that isn't so tiny in real life.
