Its an unusual combination mainly because its not available as an option from Apple. Nevertheless I bought a sport with white strap and ordered the black strap separately. I personally think the end result looks really nice, in fact Im glad I didn't get the SS as every pic I see of it is smeared in fingerprints. In fact I think that Apple deliberately left this combination out as it might lure customers away from the SS and black sports band option. I mean, what other reason could there be? A silver watch with a black band is a classic combination. Also check out that battery life, its 4:25pm and its blasting along at 86% left!
