Just a Thought, If they made them from aluminium I'd buy one in a second. Also it would be nice to see other variants of the watch bands for the sport model's as there's very little choice for these. Although that may be the plan in order to tempt customers towards the SS Apple watch.

I'd love one as well. If you look at the Space Black link bracelet watch, the bracelet doesn't actually match the finish of the watch. There's quite a difference and it still looks amazing. For that reason I think the existing space black link bracelet would look perfect on the space grey sport watch. Unfortunately it's not yet sold separately.

No, for the same reason why they do not include black Sport band with the silver aluminum watch.
The question was about Apple releasing a Space Grey Link Bracelet, not including a Space Grey Link Bracelet with the silver aluminium Sport watch. The black sport band is available on it's own and can be used on any watch including the silver aluminium Sport. They could do the same with a Space Grey Link Bracelet.

It makes no sense for them to release a standalone bracelet that isn't included with any of the models. The black sport band with the standard SS pin is an available option for the SS model, hence why it's sold separately.

I see what you're saying now. Personally I think it would match the Space Grey Sport just as well as it matches the Space Black Watch that it comes on. I'm sure it's not offered as an option on the Space Grey Sport because it costs more than the watch does and is a different metal. But I'd buy one.

Don't forgot the aluminium used in the Apple Watch Sport is an alloy Apple says is 60% stronger than the aluminium they've used in their previous products.

It would be great if they would bring some new options to the sport range but I very much doubt they will. By setting the base model as a different finish with only rubber bands they can tempt a lot of people in to spending the extra £200 for something that looks a bit more like your everyday classy watch.

Still, I plan to buy a leather or Milanese loop for my Space Grey sport when it arrives. I can live with the tiny little tabs not matching and it will look much better for a fair amount less money.
