    Hey so I finally got my black and blue sport bands in the mail. The blue feels smooth/slick like my white band. The black one definitely feels more like a rougher rubber. Definitely seems to be more of a "lint magnet" than my white or blue.

    Is that normal? Does anyone else have black and another color to compare? :(

    i bought a black sports band, and it does feel different to the green one. It feels tougher, but I think that may be a good thing. I haven't much data and other things could have affected it but: I have done 2 workouts since I got my apple watch, one with the green sport and one with the black sports band. With the black, there was no movement whatsoever down my arm, it stayed stuck in place throughout the workout, with only one hiccup. With the green one, it seemed to lose my heart rate much more (about 5 or 6 occasions when it would drop from 120 to 40 in 5 seconds...), it doesn't feel quite as secure.

    No but I have heard the black feels different. What watch do you have? I have SG with black band and am thinking about getting the white. But I'm also sort of holding out that we will see new bands at WWDC.
