    Im exchanging the Milanese Loop that I got with my SS watch for a Sport band. Few questions:

    - Is there only 1 model of Black sport band? i.e. does the SG Sport and SS use the same black sport band?
    - What material is the connector pin and the metal portion you push through the hole made of?
    - Has anyone had issues with the piece that is tucked under slipping out and popping the band loose?

    There is both a SG and SS version of the black sport band each with the pin made from the different finish.

    No issues with the tucked piece whatsoever. Granted I haven't done any heavy training or physical activity beyond the light jog, etc. Works great so far.

    Ok, thanks. I'm assuming the SS version has a SS pin?

    So will apple owe you money when you do the exchange?

    I believe there are two models of the black sport band: black with silver colored pin and black with grey/black colored pin. The connector pin is made out of nickel or aluminum. And I've had my Sport for a few days and have done some cycling with it (mtb included) with no issues. I did notice that I needed to tighten the watch up one notch when riding though. Not happy with Milanese?

    The pins are SS on both, but the band that comes with the sport has a space grey colored pin, while on the SS it's silver.

    No difference in material, only in finish. Actually I guess that makes the band that comes with the SG a bit exclusive since I'm presuming bands sold separately will only have the silver pin.

    Definitely no issues with the tucked piece coming out. Its pretty snug. Occasionally my arm hair gets pulled in between them which is kind of annoying lol. The biggest issue Ive had with the Sport band is the pin points straight down and scrapes on my macbook while I'm typing. Nails on a chalkboard! I have the silver pin, but Id be willing to wager that the SG finish would be scraped off pretty quickly.
