    I think the bands will be interchangeable regardless of the watch type (Sport, Watch, Edition).

    Most bands won't work aesthetically, but they'll fit.

    Yep. 3rd party bands and straps will fill any gaps and then some. It will be a huge business.

    Everything that I saw said that all 38mm bands will fit all 38 mm watches and all 42 mm bands will fit 42 mm watches. Whether they match properly is another question....

    They're all the same exact form factor, just different metals for the case. Why in the world wouldn't they be interchangeable?

    Whoever "someone" is was talking out their hind end.

    The only exception, I believe is the leather classic wrist band which only will fit the 42mm watch

    Also, modern buckles only fit the 38mm.

    You mean the Leather Loop? The Classic Buckle is available in both 38mm and 42mm.

    I'm certain all bands will fit all cases physically. Visually, many combinations will be butt ugly. That is why Apple is using the term "curated" when referring to their collections.

    In their opinion, these given combos are the ones that look good.

    Everything prior to the arrival in buyers hands is sheer speculation, yet guessing seems to be very popular.

    My take on Apple's use of the word curated is part of their ongoing efforts to build snob appeal into a watch that doesn't have a heritage. Or for that matter, any of the attributes buyers of luxury watches look for.

    That's not a knock on Apple simply a fact of life.

    Can an Sport Watch be combined with the leather/milanese loop?

    I was just wondering... The Sport Watch is the cheapest and the milanese loop is the nicest and so is the leather loop? Will this work?

    The polished chrome hinge won't look good next to matte aluminum case and you might run into the risk of galvanic corrosion.

    I was looking at pictures on apples site today - it looks like the leather loop doesn't have a chrome hinge, so that seems like a good choice for the sport.

    Leather shouldn't be exposed to a sweat situation like at the gym.

    Yes, that's true only for the Leather Loop; however, it's available only in 42mm.

    I didn't say anything about working out with it. I plan on using the sport band for working out, and a different band for nicer occasions.
