    or

    $400 + $50 black band

    I've been swaying back and forth between the two. Any opinions?

    Same boat. I’m leaning towards the Space Gray. But the other one is nice also.

    I'm opting for the Space Grey with the black band. Both choices look great though, it's a tough one!

    Both look great, but I'd choose the Space Grey.

    For some reason, the space gray aluminum looks better in videos. The silver seems too cheap looking... ugh i cant decide still

    I was in the same boat last night, but decided to go with the space gray aluminum so I can save $50 and not have to purchase an extra band. Both choices do look great though!

    fortunately I don't care.

    Whichever one moves though my cart without doing things

    (they both look great)

    But I must say those pictures look like crap. They look like cheesy cartoons

    Do you have a link to videos showing the Sports? Seems Apple gave all reviewers SS.

    I'm wondering if the silver aluminum will look better with the non sport bands. It looks like most of them have silver connectors to the watch that might blend better with the silver body.

    Any video of the silver sport? I think the recode is the Apple watch series

    My worry is that the space grey will scratch and show marks and the aluminium underneath.

    I think the silver aluminum will go better with more bands.

    I was thinking the same thing. Couldn't decide between the sports white and sports black. Ordered both, will go to Apple Store and look at them then decide and cancel the other order .

    I was going to get the silver and order a black band. It after trying out today I can say the silver looks really cheap. The black (space grey) works really well and actually looks attractive , so I changed my mind. Luckily I preordered both!

    The Space Grey with black sport band looks great in person, much better than the silver aluminum. HOWEVER, when I was trying them on, the silver aluminum looked much better with other bands (Milanese etc.) than the Space Grey.

    So what I would suggest is if you plan on leaving the black sport band on and not getting any additional bands, go with Space Grey. If you want to have that flexibility, go with silver aluminum.

    After seeing them in person, I am going with silver aluminum with a black band. I like the contrast of the silver metal and black screen/band.

    The silver is more versatile if you plan on trying out other bands in the future.
