    I'm pretty sure I'll end up purchasing the stainless steel Apple Watch. Just not too sure which band to get. As with many of you, I keep changing my mind.

    I want the milanese loop but there's no way it's fitting round my wrist :(

    Not a ton of votes, but surprised not a lot voted for the Classic Buckle

    Link is my first choice, Second choice is sport band, I'd rather buy the sport band separately because I'd like it in green, but ill take one on the 24th over anything else.

    Starting off with a White Sport Band, and then once the craziness dies, I'm going to head into a store to check out the other bands and see what I like. Most likely going to get a Milanese loop though.

    This is probably what I will do as well. I like the Milanese, but I'm not sure I want to commit to $700 (total) at this point.

    I'm getting the black sports and and saving up for the ss link bracelet. The classic buckle won't look much different from a distance. The Milanese doesn't look right to me and I have flip flopped on it several times. I would have to see in person and try it on.

    I was solidly set on the SS Link but just a couple of hours ago I decided I should look at everything one more time just in case.

    I fear that the Link might be too tight for me. My wrists are 'exactly' 205mm which is its largest size. It would be horrible if I get it but cannot wear it until I somehow get an extra link for it. I then noticed the Classic Buckle goes to 215mm. I like that it seems thick AND like the Stainless Steel buckle parts. SO, if it is available quickly that is my top favorite.

    I will be in Berlin in May and can try on the Link there. I'll order one once I get home if I like it better.

    I also will be getting a sports strap.

    Really, really love the metal link but for the price...I'll have to get it another day, most likely in a month or two. So for now, it's the SS with a white sport band. T-minus 30 mins and counting :eek:

    Makes the most sense to me to get the sports strap for launch day. It is SO hard to know what great 3rd party straps are going to show up, so I hate to spend a lot of extra dollars on a classic buckle or other leather straps until the market has a chance to respond to the device.

    Until things settle out, the sports band (aka cheap band) will so just fine, even on the more expensive SS/sapphire watch!
