    I have searched this forum and the web but cannot find a Silver Aluminum adapter for the Sport Apple Watch that matches the finish of the sport watch. I have seen some kickstarter models and Click but they all look sold out or not successful.

    Can anyone provide a recommendation or link for any choices?

    Thanks.

    DO NOT order a CLICK adapter. I patiently waited for more than half a year only to receive damaged/defective steel adapters. They are refusing or unable to respond to me. What a waste of time and money.

    I have a pair of these:

    http://www.steelconnect.co/SteelConnect-A-adapter-for-Apple-Watch-p/sca-asg.htm

    They are aluminum and match the space gray color pretty close. They aren't anodized though, so the brushed aluminium finish doesn't perfectly match the anodized watch case.

    I like them a lot though. They are chunkier looking than other adapters, they are made for 22mm bands which is awesome, and they lengthen the vertical of the watch case which makes it a little easier for me to wear.

    The Space Grey color is an extraordinarily accurate color and is not visibly different unless you are really, really looking for it. They did a tremendous job at making it matte steel.

    Are you sure they're aluminium? Their kickstarter page says they're steel, (like every one bar click) when did that change?

    I'm wearing them today and will try to post pics sometime today.

    I'm not an expert of metals, but they feel like aluminum and they are wayyyyyyy lighter than my other steel adapters. They are comically lightweight. The edges are also sharply milled in a way that I haven't seen in any steel adaptor.

    And this is in the product description:

    "The adapter was created using high grade aluminum."

    i'm aware of that.

    just seems very strange they'd start a kickstarter to make steel ones, then sell aluminium ones instead (i can't find "steel" ones anywhere on their website)
