    Update 2:
    my original website can be found here:
    Apple Watch - Mix and Match Galleries

    Our dear friend jafingi created his own (and WAY! better) version which can be found here:
    Apple Watch - Mix & Match


    Hi.

    Apple Watch consists of numerous SKUs all of which can be looked at at Apple.com. As you will, however, be able to buy every watchband separately too, I was curious how various different combinations might look like.
    I in particular will only be able to afford a Sport Collection Apple Watch, but may very well be interested in buying another watchband in the future. Sadly there are no galleries to be found online that showcase all possible variants, which is why I chose to create one such website myself.
    The page, as is, is a work-in-progress, as I have not yet listed EVERY single Apple Watch combination. It may, however, already be interesting for you guys, which is why I share it with you now.

    Enjoy checking out the various options and have a Merry Christmas everyone.

    Apple Watch - Mix and Match Galleries

    Update:
    The page has been updated and now lists the following combinations:

    Sports Band White
    Sports Band Black
    Link Bracelet
    Space Black Link Bracelet
    Milanese Loop
    Leather Loop Stone [new]
    Leather Loop Bright Blue [new]
    Leather Loop Brown [new]


    All watch bands are combined with the silver and space gray aluminum bodies, as well as the stainless steel and space black stainless steel bodies. The gold body options have been removed for the time being, but may subsequently be added for all watchbands.

    Nice work, but may I suggest a easier for you and for the viewer concept.

    Just photoshop (PNG with transparency) the watch bodies with their 4 different coloured metals.

    Aluminium
    Chrome
    Black Chrome?
    Yellow Gold
    Rose Gold

    Then Photo's of each strap.

    Just have 2 lists to select from (which body, which strap) and show that combination.

    No point in making hundreds of separate images then for each combination

    hi.

    Thanks for your suggestion. What you said is actually how I do it within Photoshop. My website-building knowledge is sadly basically non-existent. Otherwise I would have done it EXACTLY like you suggested.
    I was only using iWeb (yes, some people still use that :D) and it does not, afaik, offer anything remotely like that.

    So, ya... the site is rather crappy... but it's the best I can do :/

    Ahh, yes I see.

    Perhaps someone else here, if you have all the images already done.

    Could quickly code the web page part for you to allow the viewer to simply select from the 2 lists, and see one image of the two images (strap and body) combined.

    I'm sure there are many here, clever with web sites, that would do this if you could supply them with the images.

    Something we'd all like to play with once done :)

    And keep up the great work :)

    The page has been updated and now includes the Leather Loop options as well. See my first post for more details.

    Thanks for your comment and appreciation.

    I was asking for something like this myself, and was surprised nobody ever did it. I do use Photoshop, although I have almost no PS-knowledge.
    It does work fairly easily though as Apple's PR images all have the watch in the exact same position. So what I did is cut the watch out from the front once, and once from the side and then save the shape so I could re-use it. Now all I do is open the picture with the right band, and paste the watch body into it. Still a bit of work... but not as bad as it may seem.
    Merry Christmas to you, too.

    Thank you for the explanations! When I have some times with the university I will try with Lightroom myself.... Maybe with the one that are missing now ;)

    Just had a few minutes before the guests arrived for Christmas, so took the liberty to throw something together quickly.

    You first choose between the 5 watches, and then the strap. Finally you can see them together.

    Haha. Thanks a lot!
    This is how it is done if you know what you are doing. Not like me :D
    This is also more like I wanted to do it.

    Nice work. Some of the combos look off and don't coordinate that nicely, hence why Apple made the choices they made.

    Some suggestions for improvement. It's difficult to tell what Watch face we're looking at when viewed head on. I'd suggest including the side views next to them (or listing the metal name/color).

    Great idea! I have added labels on the faces and straps, so it's easier to see. Also added a label so you can see which combination you currently have selected.

    Excellent and very well done.

    Not forgetting also to thank the OP for starting this off as a concept.

    So a BIG well done to both of you, and I'm sure we all really appreciate the work you have both put into offering this multiple view / combination of the watch.

    Since the clasp of the modern buckle is in two pieces, it should be possible to move half the clasp from one buckle to another. For example, if you buy the rose gold with rose gray leather, and get a blue modern buckle, you can have a two-toned clasp with some mixing and matching.

    These look great!! i was thinking about the :apple: Watch straps are they going to fit everyone? like a one size fits all, or are we going to have to go into the Apple store to try them on, or even have to alter them to fit our wrists. Everybody's wrists are different, some large some small, this goes for men and women.

    The way I see and understood it is that all bands are adjustable. So I guess most of them will fit most people. The degree of adjustability though may be different. The sports band for example has pretty cut hopes, while the leather loop can just be pulled tighter.

    I guess though that most bands will fit 99% of the people. Unless your name is Brett Favre I guess :D
