    Click on any Sport edition in the store and it says:
    What’s in the box
    Apple Watch
    Magnetic charging cable
    USB power adapter
    Two bands
    Quick start guide

    So, two of the same color band? Can I trade one band in for a different color? Does this mean the rubber bands aren't very durable?

    Nice catch and confirmed!

    The Watch Sport is the only model that comes with duplicates it looks like - the Stainless with rubber only comes with a single.

    I would guess that there are two different sized bands. Think S/M and M/L

    Maybe they mean a left and a right single band ?:D

    Sweet, now I don't have to worry about choosing a watch band size before wearing it.

    Yup, I'll start, anyone want to trade a M/L white for a S/M white? :)

    ----------

    Wait, the Stainless steel one with the sport band says it only comes with one band. Boo.

    I know this might be waaaaay wrong, but having just read the "what's in the box" for myself, I get the feeling that "two straps" actually refers to the two pieces which make up one complete band... Hey, I hope I'm wrong, but my gut tells me that
    2 straps = 1 band.

    EDIT: the fact that the link band is "1 strap" could back up my theory.

    No it's 2 bands, S/M and a M/L.

    Not correct. It says "2 bands," not 2 straps. It is called a band on every other page. It is odd, though. Even on the stainless steel watches, a watch with a sport band only comes with 1 band.

    For sure I see that 2 band sizes are listed on the fitment chart, but the "what's in the box" still refers to 1 band and 2 straps.

    Actually it says "two straps" on the watch I'm looking at (42mm Sport Space Grey), but refers to the "band" in the singular form.

    ----------

    That's a sizing guide.... Where does it say that both are provided in the box? It could be a choice during the ordering process.

    Okay good, that makes sense. Well spotted. I guess my cynicism after seeing these prices makes it hard for me to believe that they are actually including a second band.

    Thanks also, good find.

    I agree, after seeing the prices I never thought :apple: would give a band away for free with a watch. Very nice of them. Just to bad we can't choose colors.

    So everybody who gets a Sport will get a band that they have no use for? Nice, I'll never have to pay retail for an extra one. :D

    There will be a ton of people swapping with each other to get extra colors.

    Good because I'll be looking for a black 42mm band for my silver sport watch.

    The sizing guide states a band of 130mm with the 38mm Apple Watch! Who has a wrist that small? Are Apple expecting dogs to wear these?!?

    So is it two bands of the same color just different sizes?

    Yeah, I guess it is simpler to just give people two sizes than have yet more models.
