    Can I pair an Apple Watch Sport with, say, the Milanese loop or Link Bracelet?

    You have to buy the watch with the sport band when you order, but you can order other bands as well.

    I feel this has been talked about to death. Yes it is compatible with all the bands.

    The official word from Apple is: "Buy as many bands as you want. We'll take as much of your money as we can. Some bands may look stupid with your Aluminum watch, though."

    Is there any official source to say this, though? There's no compatibility information on the Store pages nor any marketing lines about pairing them up.

    If you want an official source, Google it and sort through the results like the rest of us.

    If you want people to reply and tell you what they've already found in their research, ask a question on a forum.

    ONCE & FOR ALL

    Any 38mm case is compatible with any 38mm band
    Any 42mm case is compatible with any 42mm band

    38mm case is not compatible with 42mm band
    42mm case is not compatible with 38mm band

    I think the big after market with be bars that will take standard bands. The band prices are out to lunch. I can can get Rolex bands cheaper.

    This may have been asked before...but can't find it if it was...any problems with the aluminum interacting badly with the steel connectors?

    There have been a few threads talking about galvanic corrosion but nothing official.

    Ah, galvanic corrosion...thanks. I did run across that term on the forum but it slipped my mind. I shall now look it up. Thank you!

    The Apple training memo said it would look ugly and not function perfectly... but not in those words

    I am hoping that we can see when Europe is live... a disclaimer/compatibility when ordering the bands separately.
