I just got my delivery of three of the new sport bands. Love them all! The platinum/white Nike+ is super airy and looks a little nicer/lighter than the flat silver one that was sold with the watch only. The azure is just as nice as expected, darker than the lilac and lighter and more subtle than the royal blue. The camellia I ordered just to have a look and maybe send back – and actually like it best, I think. It's the first subtle red from Apple, with a hint of pink, but also kinda "burnt".

Yeah, I've got the black/grey Nike one as well. Glad I found one on ebay as I like it much more than the new, seperately sold anthracite/black Nike band. Too little contrast there between band and holes, I think.

all three are beautiful. i especially love the blue. great shots, too.

Thanks! The magic trackpad makes for a nice pedestal for taking pictures of the Watch. – The azure is definitely my favourite blue band from Apple, closely followed by the ocean blue one.

Would be nice if someone had a picture of the new pebble sport band; it would make this thread kinda "complete".

Great pics. I was thinking I would get an Ocean Blue based on Apple's pics, but yours makes me think I should go for the Azure instead. Carmella looks great, too, just worried that would be a bit on the pink side (which I like, but I don't wear).

Ocean and Azure are both very nice, just depends if you want a lighter (Azure) or darker (Ocean) shade of blue. Can't go wrong with either, really. The Camellia is super nice, but you should take a look in a store, preferably with daylight, to decide if it's "too pink". To me it is not very pink at all, but everyone sees colors slightly differently and pictures are rarely spot on wrt color.

Anyone here with an ocean, that also has/wants the azure? I have come to terms that I have a band problem, and am trying to stop buying them. Haha. This picture of the azure is making me want to head to the store right now and get one. I do have the ocean blue so I am trying to talk myself out of it.

I just got the Pebble sport band today, and it's almost identical to concrete. for anyone curious I posted a pic of all the gray toned bands, Pebble is on the left, followed by concrete, stone, and fog.

Thanks for posting the Pebble picture! It looks like a darker version of Stone to me, or a warmer version of Concrete.

You're welcome, I really wondered what the difference was. I figured others were wondering too.
Is Concrete the darkest gray that Apple has made?
i think the pebble is actually a little darker then the concrete. Concrete is more "gray" while the pebble has a brown tint.

Camellia came in today, I ended up really liking it. It's hard to see the difference by itself, but I did a comparison with my (product)red.
