    Would love a clear, fluoroelastomer band for the extra, sporty minimalism. That's all I ask for. :cool:

    That is one ugly band. I love clear case's for phones but never on a watch.

    I'm sure Apple can use better materials, but a clear band would be really cool with the silver aluminum. Almost like it's attached to your skin.

    Even if it's only the band?

    If it's crystal clear, it'll look great.

    I thought those clear Swatch bands would discolor after some time.

    If Apple doesn't someone else will. Not that I necessarily like it, but third-party bands are going to be everywhere.

    They do. I use to own a Swatch transparent watch with a clear strap many years ago and the strap discoloured after a while. As nice as they are this is one reason not to use one.

    Clear would turn color so fast, a nasty yellow shade.

    That'll be some serious cash.

    Well, my tan leather "Smart Cover" also aged to perfection. :p

    No way. You would look like you had a square shaped metal box on your wrist. The band helps complete the "watch" puzzle.

    You are 20 feet from me and see something on my wrist.

    - It has a band and has a square/circle looking casing. First guess is "oh, it must be a watch because it looks like what most watches look like".

    - All you see is a band. "Oh, it's a bracelet or some kind of fitness band like fitbit or something".

    - All you see is a housing because from a distance it's hard to see a clear band "What is that thing? A watch? wait no, it has no band..maybe its some kind of medical device?" /shrug.

    iPads were thought to be nerdy until people got used to them.

    I guess, but a tablet is still square in shape. Not much clear bands going around since the Swatch in the 80's.
