    Yeah, at least I won't have to buy a Dyson now! :D

    I don't like the Sport band anyhow. It looks like a kid's watch with it.

    Something to keep in mind is with it wrapped around your wrist, it won't be touched as often by oily fingers, which leave unsightly and noticeable residue on materials like rubber in piss poor lighting.

    I can only assume those straps have been manhandled during the event in which this photo was taken, too.

    I wondered about cleaning this one, and how long the white one would stay white.

    It's nothing that a dunk in 2.9 feet of water probably wouldn't take care of. :)

    Game changing? It looks to me like the user of the watch has no game.

    That's how nasty the stap gets if you don't wipe it down occasionally. Same goes for just about everything else in one's home.

    Doesn't look terrible to me...Assuming that was one of the models that dozens (hundreds?) of people handled for hours after the event, it looks ok. The one on the left specifically looks pretty good.

    I guess in real life if the band gets dirty you could clean it. Always an option.

    Yeah, they collect dust and skin.

    That's partly why the first thing I do when I get a new smartwatch with a rubbery band, is swap it out for a leather one.

    I'm also thinking that the shiny stainless steel model will pick up fingerprints, because three sides are big, smooth, and blank.

    I'm assuming the Milanese Loop is going to collect my arm hair even though a tech site says the links are so small his arm hair didn't get caught at all.

    I made a whole thread about it but for some reason people are scoffing at the concern. Can't wait until they make a thread when they get theirs and it yellows after a while.

    I guess, it'll save me a trip to a beauty salon.

    Or someone digs into a good, saucy spaghetti dinner and gets orange-red specks on it....

    Sport = active-wear, sweat, environmental elements

    That's why it's made of "rubber"

    Where is it from and what is the context?

    What happens when you simply wipe it down?

    :/ I still want one of these straps, can't see myself going for a run with one of the more expensive bands.

    Some people think Apple products should be immune to dust and the environment. As if there's force-field technology that Jony designed into the rubber.

    I own a watch with a rubber band, and it doesn't get as nasty as this, but it does start to wear a little on the bottom of the band where I rest my wrist while typing at a computer all day. It just adds to the character though. :cool:

    Is that the silver or space grey sport? I appreciate the direct comparison of the stainless steel to the aluminum.

    Is that first watch a silver sport?! I think its insane that the sport line isn't allowing us to buy a silver sport with a black band bundled. That is going to end up being another 49 if we want black. I am not big on the white, pink, blue, and green.

    The good news is, since the Sport models come with two different sized bands, we'll probably be seeing a lot of new straps on ebay for less than $49.

    If so you could just rinse it off in the sink. Not to big of a deal IMO.

    Look, I've warned people before about interjecting logic and the scientific method into these threads. HUSH!

    I'm thinking that nasty black newspaper ink; it rubs off like crazy on the headphones cords used by Apple. What will happen to the white band if you rest your wrist on the open page of a newspaper and the band rubs over the print as you read? It'll look smudged as hell afterwards for sure.

    The white band will be awesome while it's new and pristine, and stay pristine for...well, maybe around 15 minutes, if you're lucky. ;)
