    Is it possible to get a midnight lie sports band with the rose gold pin ? My watch is the rose gold sport with lavender band. I'd like a midnight too. But dont want it to have a different color clasp pin. Im assuming that the rose gold one on my lavender band isn't removable.

    That a bummer. I've been searching and found nothing replica'd either.

    Welcome to the "Rose Gold Sport Blues"...

    It seems to be the hardest AW, for which to get truly matching bands.

    Lol. I don't get why !!! You'd think that designers would realize customers want their stuff to match !

    Apple do 15 colours of sport band (+ the black with a black pin). In 38mm and 42mm.

    You're seriously proposing they do 15 colours in 4 pin colours, and two sizes? That's 120 different SKUs just for sport bands.

    Oh geez. Getting all serious about it over here.....No I'm not proposing a thing. Just saying that it would be nice to have a couple more full matching sb options. Or make the pin removable so you can swap it out.

    Why not? Why offer the Rose Gold and Gold cases with no matching pin options? Apple is the one company that is supposed to pay attention to detail. You know they are offering the Red Sport Band with Gold pin to go with the Chinese New Year Gold Sport, right?

    Unlike third parties, Apple knows exactly how many Gold and Rose Gold Watch Sports they sold - not just made - so they would have an idea potentially how many would fork out for extra bands. I don't care if they made it a limited special, just at least make it available.

    Well aware of the Chinese New Year special with the gold pin; my 2 apple ids are in China and Hong Kong do I've had plenty of marketing emails about it.

    But to say "why offer the rose gold and gold cases with no matching pin options" makes it sound like you'd rather they weren't offered in the first place. Maybe Apple should just discontinue all Apple watches except the stainless steel?

    No, why would a company that prides itself in their attention to detail accept non matching options? After all, Sir Jony himself declared, "Apple Watch is the most personal product Apple has ever made". And this is not a small company. Not only do they have and make a ton of money, they are also the best at logistics. No need to limit and defend their ability to churn out multiple SKUs seen through your lens. If they could make the iPod touch in multiple colours with matching wrist loops, at a presumably smaller scale, you'd think they are more than capable of supporting their customers choosing different case colours. Even if they limited it to a subset - white or off-white, black and (PRODUCT)RED.

    Limiting to a subset wouldn't work. You've just listed a subset that doesn't include the one OP wants. You know, the whole reason we're having this discussion.

    People will always want more.

    Making an iPod touch with a matching wrist loop and making available 15 different coloured sports bands in two different sizes and 4 different pin finishes are wildly different concepts.

    I missed the bit about logistics. That's why it wouldn't work. Some of the busiest Apple stores I've been to have had three or less of a particular sports band in a particular size on their shelves. Go ahead and divide that by four pin finishes... Tims Apple doesn't like to sit in excess stock.
