I had an SS S0 and black sports band with stainless steel pin but did they also make other ones. I found this person on eBay and all the bands appear genuine, reviews mention they are genuine but I never thought these were available with a stainless steel pin.

Anyone with a genuine sports band have a stainless steel pin confirm this? thanks

Awesome, thanks! The eBay seller is pretty good then. Not sure where the bands come from but they appear genuine. I ordered a 38mm Black sports band with black pin. £15 delivered.

I did buy a Nike band from CEX but returned it because it was for a 42mm watch, and came in two different colours (none were the one I ordered) and not even genuine! ha ha

Every Sport Band has a stainless steel pin apart from the gold/ceramic versions bundled with the Edition. They've never been any other metal.

I had a black band before and it had a black stainless steel pin.

I got the strap from the eBay seller today and it is actually a real one.

- shows m/l and 38mm on the straps
- assembled in China on the top
- when one of the magnetic lugs? Are pushed out using a finger nail a very minute serial number is shown

Great value for money

Hmm, he could’ve bought it separately

I know the ones that came with the watch had the satin finish (at least my White Sport did)

They are still Stainless Steel - Apple have never made bands with pins made of any other metal apart from gold and rose gold for the original Edition watch.
