    There's the Black Sport w/ the black pin, the black link, and the black milanese. But outside of this, what other bands are you using since none of them seem to match (buckles and pins etc are stainless steel, not black).

    I really like all the different color sport bands but the silver pin might drive me mad. I can't even find any 3rd party that offer black pins. So what else are you all using on your black watches, whether they are official apple bands or 3rd party?

    The Black Woven Nylon and its black buckle works great with the Space Black SS as well.

    And I can recommend you to look at the bands from Clockwork Synergy—www.clockworksynergy.com. They have some great bands, and most of them were available with some black options (second from the right at the photo below).

    I use several bands, an Apple Black Woven on my SS Black, also an Army green Monowear nylon with black pins. The Monoware is thicker and high quality material.
    And a 3rd party Black Milanese. I have an Apple Black Leather Loop too.

    I just got this leather strap from Form Function Form and it matches space black perfectly:

    I'm thinking about doing a little experiment and painting some of the pins on my 3rd party sports bands with automotive primer and black gloss to see how they come out. I saw someone else do it with a brown modern buckle and it looked fantastic.

    I have a bunch of the ClockWorkSynergy Nato bands (with the black PVD hardware) - tend to wear them the most. Have a few of the Apple sport bands (Red, Yellow, Black) and my Apple SB link band (tend to only wear that one for special occasions & high level meetings).
    Ordered some sport bands from FanTEK I'm going to try out. I really like the midnight blue colouring - looks really sharp with this watch.

    Is that ceramic band heavy?

    Quite the opposite. Part of the point of using ceramic is that it is light.

    Cool, curious if it will scratch over time.

    It hasn't done so yet, and I'm tough on my watches (the screen on mine is already scratched).

    Curious if anyone else with SB is using any sort of leather band? I'm intrigued by some of the leather loops like storm gray. I realize Apple doesn't sell this color so I'd need a knockoff.

    The Leather Loop in black is a great choice für the SB.

    To follow up on this, I forgot to take my sport band to Crossfit today and so used my ceramic band. We were using kettle bells, including in ways that resulted in them hitting and rubbing against the band. This has badly scratched the stainless steel band I used with my first generation AW, but it hasn't left a mark on the ceramic.

    Giving the Olive sport strap a try. Didn’t like it at first but it’s growing on me. Very comfortable.

    The Black Sport Band, I have the Space Black Milanese Loop and Black Sport Loop (others too but these are the main black ones) but I prefer to wear my Black Sport Band, it looks really good and is comfortable

    For the past month I've been mainly using the black milanese or rose red sport, depending on attire and mood
