    If someone can afford the milanese loop or link bracelet why would the buy the Sport watch?

    Because the milanese loop and link bracelets aren't going to be as expensive as some here are speculating.

    You've just provided one reason why.

    What do think of the Space Black Steel Case, s.s. Milanese Loop band combo?

    Why not? If I will not be able to afford the Edition, I am planning to buy both the Sport and Standard (then give one or both next year as gifts to my siblings) - one for extreme/outdoor activites and the other at work or for more formal / special occasions. I will definitely be buying the Milanese loop as alternate band with the others and as matching accessory of both watches. It will look good in all 3 models.

    I am liking the link more and more each day so I might buy it, as well, along with at least 2 bands, even unseen yet in person.

    We'll see. Regardless I don't understand why someone would want to mix an aluminum watch with a stainless steel band. One would assume the stainless steel bands are going to be heavier. And the aluminum watch would pair better with lighter bands.

    Not bad looking from a distance but up close the mismatch of standard SS hinge and Space Black case would be annoying and you'll see this everyday.

    I can see why Apple isn't advertising some of these combinations!

    But to each his own...

    I think these look quite nice. I think that the straps look better on the stainless steel versions, but they look great on the sport version too.

    The contrast is pretty good actually. This is what makes the entire collection up in my alley of fashion style by which I think depending on occasions or what I wear, I could mix and match any band to any model if I want/need and still aesthetically look good & most importantly, different (or has some distinction) vs. what the mainstream AW wearers have on their wrists.

    The black sport band with the silver aluminum Sport looks great, too bad it's not sold in that config.

    The Sport with the leather loop looks really good too, because there's no metal clashing. The ones where there's aluminum up against SS, I'm not too fond of.

    This gallery has made me more interested in buying different straps, especially if I get the Sport model.

    Don't really see your point. I don't think people buying an aluminium watch will exclusively want to use really light bands, especially if it's substantially cheaper.

    Personally, if I can get a Sport watch with a nicer band for less than the SS watch will cost, I'd go down that route as I don't really want to spend absolutely loads on a gen 1 product. This is, of course, providing they look good together (which I'm 90% sure they will). I also don't think the link bracelet and Milanese loop will go for much more than $199, perhaps $249 tops. I could be wrong - but I highly, highly doubt it will be the $999 some pundits are speculating. That would be madness.

    Remember, bands like the link bracelet don't really 'match' the SS watch either as it's a brushed finish vs polished, and the leather loop has no bits not to match (if that makes sense)...

    I prefer the matte finish of the Sport, the shiny stainless steel is a fingerprint/scratch magnet.

    I wonder how much the metal bands weigh? Would it feel unbalanced if the bands weigh more than the Sports watch?

    Agree.

    If sport bands are not too much I might by silver aluminum and extra black sports band.

    A bigger concern is galvanic corrosion.

    Nice catch on the g. corrosion!
    I'd hate to have my hand fall off because of this. ;)

    It's a shame there won't be a black Milanese loop to match. Hopefully in the future though!
