    Just ordered the silver sport with a white band, and a separate black sports band. Has anybody done the silver aluminum and black sports band combo? Do you like it? I found a picture of it online and it actually looks nicer to me than the space gray with black band.

    I ordered a black band also for my white sport. I like the black and silver contrast better than the space grey.

    I'm hoping for some kind of dark gray at some point. Maybe an aftermarket one will pop up soon.

    Anyone have a Black Sport Band on Silver Sport Watch yet?

    If you were able to get a Silver Apple Watch Sport and managed to purchase an additional Black Sports Band, please post a photo. The MixYourWatch site works OK but I want to see the real thing.

    Browse through the Show off your Apple Watch thread. I think I've seen a pic or two of it? Dying to get some extra color straps for my SG. Hoping the red and orange are released eventually :)

    Silver aluminum sport with black band?

    Anyone have that combo now? Or any pictures of that in try on.

    I got the silver sport and was going to get the space grey, but I think I'm digging the silver now and it works so well I don't want to press my luck and get bad taptic or have to deal with the space grey scratching off.

    I don't have one of the space grey, but I have seen scratches people have posted pics of, and of course space grey iPhones can look pretty bad.

    So I'm kinda happy with my silver so far, I thought I had to have the space grey before, now I'm thinking of keeping this and adding a black band.

    Ah so you are trying to justify to yourself a reason to keep the silver over the grey, gotcha

    I think the silver looks better with black than it does with the color bands.

    BTW, MixYourWatch.com let's you play around with the various watch and band combos.

    The black bands look better with the silver aluminum for sure. The silver watch also looks better quality than the Space Grey one. Good call!

    Oo this combo looks gorgeous. Have a white band now with a black on order. I'm liking the white a lot but that black silver combo is SHARP! Can't wait!!

    Yeah, totally happened by accident, couldn't get the space grey on launch so went for the silver with white band.

    Now I'm liking the white which I thought I would hate, and the silver goes so great with everything, now I'm buying a black band.

    I think I was conditioned to want space grey due to having a space grey iPhone.

    My wife asked me to buy her a black band for her 38mm pink sport. She thought the back band would look better for dressier occasions than the pink.

    Me too. When I did the mixyourwatch combo, I liked the silver aluminum/black band the best, and was disappointed when it wasn't an option. So I ordered the black band separate.

    I must admit, the white band I have now has grown on me, so much so that I may swap the two bands as mood dictates. I'll be getting the black band this Friday.

    Oh, and I also ordered the black Leather Loop band. Yes, I'm a band junkie. But I need a good combo for dressing up.
