I have a SS Milanese and a Space Grey Sport on pre-order. I finally got a chance to go into my local Apple Store this evening to try on the watch. The guy who was helping me was a very awkward nerdy kid and nervous, probably his first day or two on the job. He would not be a great help to someone who actually needed some advice and assistance. Fortunately, I just needed him to pass me watches to try on and speak as little as possible. First off, the Space Grey Sport doesn't look as dark as I was hoping. It's dark grey but would never pass for black unfortunately. While I had high hopes for it going in, being a fan of black traditional watches, but I wasn't impressed. It's aptly part of the Sport line up... I guess a good word is "cheap". If Apple made a true black aluminum watch like the iPhone 5 black, that might be worthy considering. The Stainless Steel Watch is an obvious step up... actually offering the materials you'd expect from a decent watch. It's the only one to consider if you ask me unless you're strictly looking for a fitness watch. Now unfortunately, I had issues with nearly all the bands. Sport Band - while the texture isn't bad... it's rubber. Not classy in the slightest. Milanese - I wanted to love this bracelet and will likely still keep the one I ordered, but the weave is so tight and the band so thin that it really resembles silver fabric more than metal. I really wish it had a bulkier or looser weave that would make it look clearly like metal and more masculine. The magnet is strong and the infinite adjustability is nice but it was disappointing. Leather Loop - Horrible feel. It honestly feels worse than the sport band texture. It's like plastic... not leather. Not sure what Apple was thinking with this one. Leather Classic Buckle - better feeling leather but too thin... not substantial. There are plenty of tightly spaced holes offering a good adjustment range, but when I put it on my 180mm wrists, the end wrapped way around protruding out meaning it was way too long. I'd have to trim some length off of it I think. Link - Looks like it's right out of the 80's and doesn't match the finish of the watch. Again, strange choice. Final Thoughts: Overall, I'm really disappointed. I really wonder if any real men were consulted in the design of the bracelets. They are all very girly... thin, dainty, and cheap feeling. Where is a modern polished link bracelet? A substantial Milanese? A thick leather option? I'd even take a Rob Halford / Nilay Patel rocker bracelet over most of Apple's offerings (joking!) If I had the opportunity to change my pre-order, I'd probably change the Milanese to a Classic Leather band. It's the least offensive of the lot. As it is, I'll stick with the Milanese for now and either buy the Classic Leather later or upgrade to a more masculine option down the road (ideally 3rd party since none of Apples bands seem to suit me). The Display: The most remarkable thing about the whole experience for me, was seeing the display on the watch in person. The pixel density and quality of colours and pitch blacks of the display... Wow! That was incredible. By far the best display I've ever seen... on any device... ever! I'd love to see Apple adopt that display technology for the next iPhone.
