    I managed to snag the two bands I wanted most, the black milanese and nylon bands today. They didn't have the yellow and royal blue sport bands I wanted too though. Gotta check back another time. Here's some photos of it with my stainless steel black Apple Watch.


    [EDIT: Picked up the Royal Blue and Pearl White nylon bands, added more photos :)]

    I bought the black nylon band but seriously debated getting the Milanese band. From your perspective, which one do you like better?

    Wow, I didn't think these were available in stores yet.

    Could a Space Black brother like myself trouble you for a face-up shot of the watch with the black NATO attached? :D

    I gotta say, the black nylon looks a lot better in person than I thought it would. Will definitely be picking up one. FINALLY, I'll have a new band that actually matches my SGS.

    Totally agree. Wish they would also release the leather bands for the sgs

    This is a great post for Team Space Black as I am really interested in these nylon bands as a casual switch up from the sports band. This looks pretty great and love the adapters and look of the nylon.

    Now we need someone to buy the gray leather band and gray classic buckle for some pics :)

    I'd be interested in seeing some pictures of the stainless steel with black milanase loop. I always thought the silver milanase loop was too feminine for my taste, but I've been jealous of how breathable it seems (important in the Houston summer). The black may be just the ticket.

    I saw an apple employee wearing a black milanese on SS and it looked bad ass. Better than the silver milanese.

    ^This is what I'd like to know.
    I've been using a sport band and find it very comfortable but I'd like something different.

    I'm curious as well. Specifically if someone can describe how the retaining loop is made. Does it seem like one seamless piece, or does it have a join somewhere? If there is a join, how are the two ends held together? I've had nylon bands before where the loop is formed by fusing (ie. melting) the nylon at the ends together. This part ends up being very itchy. Now this is Apple, so I'm sure they've taken steps to prevent that, but I would to hear from someone who has one.

    I really like the look of the black nylon - looks a lot "blacker" in your photos than Apple's renders. It's on my wish list.

    Never realized any of the nylon had black buckle. That's pretty cool, thanks for the pics they look great. Definitely raised my interest in that band.

    Like the sports band can you get it wet? I mean not shower with it or swim but just washing your hands?

    I'm guessing so. Nylon dries pretty easily, so I would only assume that getting this band wet isn't a huge deal.

    Apparently my comment from this morning didn't post. Did you walk into an apple store and pick one up or were you able to just give them a call to find out if they had stock? Very interested in getting a black milanese.

    I called ahead to check, they are able to check their stock inventory for local stores. You can also go online to the Apple site for a live text chat with Apple support they will also check for you.

    The nylon feels very very comfortable, I'd say even more comfortable than the sport bands cause it's lighter. You'll forget it's there. It will definitely soak up water and sweat though, so I'd probably avoid wearing it when working out or on rainy days lol~ also the buckle on the nylon band feels like plastic, not metal.

    What do you think of the Pearl Nylon on the SG? I can't decide between Black or Pearl Nylon for my SGS.
    Edit: Added Nylon

    I just got the pink nylon this morning and I love it. So comfortable and light. Sometimes I forget I'm wearing my watch! Will definitely be getting another one.

    That sounds great - I used to have quite a heavy watch, and I thought the Sport when I originally bought it would be too light, but I ended up loving not really being able to feel it when wearing it.

    Looking forward to my nylon strap being delivered!

    I had ordered the black woven nylon band and Apple said 2-3 weeks for delivery. I checked my local Apple store this morning, in-stock. Cancelled my original order and re-ordered for pickup. Here are a few photos of it.

    It's much more comfortable than I thought it would be, I really like it. Especially since my original silicone band has really started to wear out, it's not quite as comfortable as it first was.

    The big issue with the black band (which I love) is that Apple didn't make one with a regular steel buckle. It's a space grey buckle or nothing. Doesn't look great with the SS model.
