    Which color are you getting & do you think the price will be the same for both colors ?

    I'm getting space grey and I do think the price will be the same for both.

    They should be priced the same because Space Gray doesn't require the special plating found on the Space Black model (in the stainless steel Watch collection).

    I'm really interested in the Space Grey, but I do think it will cost more :( I'll be going with the cheapest option to start with tbh, it's just too much money for something I don't need, that will likely have terrible residual values but really just want

    Why do you think this? They don't charge different prices for Space Gray, Silver and Gold iPhones, do they?

    I almost always go with the aluminum/white products but the black on black Sport looks awesome and I will definitely be going with that.

    I don't have anything to base it on really, other than the fact it's only shown once with only the black strap in the gallery's on the apple store, like its a limited version? Possibly like the black MacBook was

    I hope I'm wrong of course

    If the Apple Watch SS turns out to be crazy expensive and I am left to get a Sports edition, there's no doubt it'll be the Space Gray with the black band.

    It is looking like I will not be able to afford or willing to spend the money for a stainless steel watch. I think the silver aluminum looks okay, but it could also look cheap. That's why I'll probably end up with the space gray. Can't wait!

    Price will be a factor, but first choice is Stainless Steel Black

    Option 2 will be Sports Space Black [​IMG]

    I like sport silver and it's my first choice as well. And the price should be the same.

    Same situation here. How much do you think you're willing to pay for the Stainless Steel Black?

    To OP: I believe the Sport models will be the same price no matter the color, but with the Black in the Stainless Steel I expect it to carry a premium price tag due to its DLC coating.

    I'm in the same boat. I've been looking for an in person picture of the space black SS, man that thing looks sexy. Too bad it'll probably be way out of my budget...

    Count me as a 4th on the SS Space Black unless it's too pricey for me and then Sport Space Gray.

    I'm potentially willing to go up to $800 for the SS Space Black version. I have about $700 cash set aside for it, and I could justify another $100 to get the model I want. Anything over the $800 mark would be difficult for me to justify to myself, let alone my wife.

    I'd put my max at maybe $600. I'm hoping they keep them on the cheaper end of the rumors, but I'm probably going to be out of luck and stuck going with either the normal SS or the space gray sport.

    I want the 42mm model, so off the bat I know it will be more. My max was also $600, but depending how much more above $600 I might be able to justify it, $800 will be pushing it for a gen 1 model.

    Myself I think I will go for the space black sport! If build materials are going to be the only differentiator on the Apple Watch, this time I will go for the cheapest.

    It's a Toss Up

    But I'm leaning towards the sport silver.
    The space grey, would actually be nice because my iPhone is space grey.

    I have to admit.

    Let's say they were all the same price.
    And we had:

    Aluminium, Polished Steel and Gold plated (I say gold plated to keep it cheap)

    So they were all the exact same price, and it was only looks you were going with.

    I'd go for the Aluminium model as it's looks, to me, fresh, clean and modern.

    The shiny steel looks cheap like old chrome on a car and chrome/shiny is so 1960's, 70's and 80's We are way past that.

    Gold just looks tacky and tasteless, unless it's a small highlight.

    Aluminium would be my preferred look
    It's a personal thing I know.

    If I could get the Stainless Space Black with a leather band in place of the link bracelet I'll get that. I have a set price in mind that I will not go over. The link bracelet looks nice but its not me. I've had links the past and they have bothered me. No sense in buying the whole watch if I am not going to use the (probably very expensive) band it comes with.

    2nd option will be the Stainless 42mm with the Blue Leather band + black Sport band. 3rd would be Space Gray 42mm Sport. All depends on price and customizability. The Space Black Stainless case looks really sharp.

    I don't see Apple pricing other current products based on colour? What makes you think they will on this one?

    If the Stainless Steel version is too much then i will get the :apple: Watch Sport i will wait until i see it in the Apple store before i make my mind up which colour i want. However i do really like the Blue, Black and White bands.

    What get's me is that a few people thought i was crazy when i said the Stainless Steel Apple :apple: could cost around £1000, now industry people are suggesting it, the latest being John Gruber.
