    (posting in here because this is where people actually interested in Apple Watch bands come to discuss - the main MR fron-page thread has many of uninformed Watch-haters whining about the cost/profit of the bands or the existence of the Watch itself.)

    I put this pic together for my own use, thought others might enjoy it. On the press release page, they have a gallery button that gets to individual pics of each shoe/band combination (with the bands laid out flat), so I combined those with crops from the main pic that has the bands in circular form. Making it a little easier to focus on the band colors without the shoes in the way. ;)

    I might consider one of the blues, would have to see them in person. Would love the third one (sort of berry) if it was a bit darker and more saturated. Wish they'd do a Product(RED) version, with no contrasting color, just all that red (so, basically a perforated version of the existing one).

    I like that midnight blue band as well. I really would love to see a Product(RED) Nike band as well as an orange one in the future.

    Hello @CarlJ sorry I don't want to spam the thread, i was just showing my favorite watch band combo. Nothing more.i have removed the pictures of Link bracelet as they are not related to this thread.

    I think that midnight blue nike sports band will look much better on a space black SS watch than any other color give above in my opinion? What you think?
    This black combo also looks good

    Nor are impressive? I have no idea what you're referring to.

    Also, the first stock photo you posted with the link band is paired with the space gray aluminum Sport Watch. That doesn't look right for a combination, being they are two different metals.

    Considering the blue too. Still indecisive about Light or Dark. Hope this is the thread where people post picture of it when they get it.

    what I wonder though, are we having matching watch face color?

    I don't believe looking impressive was really ever the design of these bands. More a case of function over form.

    Why are you spamming a thread about sport bands with a bunch of pictures of your favorite totally-not-sports band? Why don't you take your pictures somewhere else instead of here? You could have started your own thread, instead of spamming this one. And the point you present in favor of your totally unrelated band is, "the best combination in my opinion"? That's nothing like supporting evidence. How does "your opinion" about steel bands help this discussion about sports bands? Are we supposed to all switch to stainless steel bands now because you said so?

    Well said CarlJ. Why Sunny1990 replied to me in the first place about a link bracelet, I have no idea.

    The whole point of you creating this thread was to imply the different new Nike Sport bands and it's configurations. I have no idea why a link bracelet would apply here.

    But anyways, looking forward to some posted photos of the new Nike bands once forum Members receive there bands. Thanks again for the thread.

    I don't understand this at all. So You edited your post entirely after others commented on it and you previously stated to me the new Nike bands are "Not impressive" and "Looks Cheap" in a thread about Nike Bands that CarlJ started.

    And Now, you're posting a picture of an Apple Watch with the Nike band , stating it will look much "Better" with the midnight Blue band, when you just told me it "Looked cheap" when I stated I liked that color. Your posts Seems rather contradictory to me in what you believe and your overall intentions.

    I think i did what OP mentioned in his post to remove Link bracelet pictures. As they were not related to this thread. I already apologized to OP for posting wrong watch band pictures.so what more you want me to do,i clearly mentioned in my post that i edited my post and removed link watch band pictures.

    Link watch band combo is my favorite and i will pick it over any other watch (including sports) band. And it's my personal opinion.

    Again, I don't understand your intentions And the fact that you clearly stated the Nike sport bands were not impressive and they looked cheap. And then you edited post after others commented on stating you liked the blue Nike band. It's just my observation that you posted two different things.

    For the respect to CarlJ and his thread, let's get back on topic please.

    Back on topic - These look great! Hope they will update the site with more high res pictures soon - I bought a black sports band just before they released the first batch of Nike bands separately and was close to ordering a black/volt band. Might get a midnight blue now - looks stunning for workouts

    When the Nike bands first launched, I was not fond of them them at first. But they seem to be catching on and I actually prefer them over my regular sport bands. They are more comfortable and I'm starting to see more of them in general.

    I think this is a telltale sign that future colors and Iterations are coming. Further more, I see Apple continuing the partnership with Nike with more exclusivity in this area.

    I was already getting the Vapormax in midnight blue so may as well get the matching band. :)

    Adds bright blue one to cart on June 1st...

    Has anyone ordered any Apple Watch products from the Nike website before? How long does shipping take?

    Can't tell if the darker blue band has a Space Grey pin or it's just odd lighting. Would be strange for that to be the only one of the four without a silver pin, considering the day/night theme they're going with, with darker and lighter versions of both the purple and the blue. Sure we'll find out soon.

    The lighter blue band appeals to me, but probably not enough to buy it.

    This photo is a little more evenly lighted and it definitely appears to be the space gray pin on the darker blue...

    Thanks for the link - great with some additional pictures... the light blue is stunning and looks like the shade of blue a lot of my running shirts are in - might need to pick that up

    FWIW, the additional pictures they show, of each shoe with matching watchband, are available from the "gallery" link at the top of Nike's original press release page, and that, combined with the matching shadows and screen contents, lead me to suspect that their nice shot of the four watches together... is a photoshop collage of the bands from the four individual shoe-and-watch-band photos, just like mine. (I was hoping to see new angles/lighting as well.)

    They say to "match your leathers" when wearing dress shoes, a belt, and a regular watch, so it makes sense for Nike to do the same with their athletic gear. I think these will sell well.
