    I thinking of purchasing a white sport band to go with my Apple Watch Sport. But am wondering if it's a bit feminine? Thoughts?

    Personally, I have never been a fan of white Apple products. However, it did boy surprise me that they had a white band. Part of the reason I didn't go for the sport is because they only offered a white band in silver. I am going to be ordering a band sports band once my watch arrives next week.

    I have 2 white watches, one is a Fossil Ceramic one in white, I get more compliments on that one than I do either of my 2 Movado's. White is not feminine at all. I ordered my 42mm in white

    I never much liked white Apple products (I should say, white MOBILE Apple products, because I like the classic iPod and the iMac aesthetic), but I happened to get a white iPhone 5, because it was available sooner and at a better discount and then ended up also getting a white iPad Air for the same reason and I'll admit that white has grown on me.

    I bought the silver sport watch with the white strap for two reasons
    1. I was sure that they would be in lower demand and therefore be more likely to arrive on time.
    2. I figured white was a nice summer strap and that the silver watch would go better with the light brown leather loops (getting married in a couple of months and that'll go nicely with my waistcoat, hehe)

    Ehhhh

    But anyways, I'm a guy and I ordered a pink sports band so I don't really think any solid color is feminine.
    Especially workout bands because there really isn't a feminine workout color anymore.

    My assistant wears a watch with a white band and it looks great on him. I think Tim Cook's white watch looks great on him too. I don't think there's anything feminine about a white watch band and more than there is about a white t-shirt.

    More specifically, those Meditteranean types.

    If you like it, buy it. Not buying it because you don't want to look 'feminine' is ridiculous.

    The rose gold AW with a red leather band can be worn by a man without emasculating him. If you're spending $350+, buy what looks good to you!

    He's gay, but that doesn't mean he's feminine.

    Also, good point.

    All I saw was a crotch-holding low class individual with money.

    I don't think so. I've been wearing a white band for months and get a lot of compliments on it.

    I dig the white band

    I got the White Sport version with plans to buy a black band, but after seeing it I am going to stick with the white

    Try it on. If you like it, wear it.
    Pretty simple.

    Colors have no gender. Over time we have assigned gender to colors, so no, white is not feminine.

    Not worried about that. Just wondering which one will go better with my SG. I'm considering swapping my black band with my wife's white. She is usually rougher on her iDevices so she prefers darker color that show less wear.

    When I wear the white band it's not feminine. I guess it just depends on the person wearing it. ;)
