    I think it's the wrong sized band for the watch.

    That has got to be the leather loop on a 38mm Watch. Remember that the leather loop only comes in the 42mm size.

    If you had the right size band on it, that would actually look pretty good. Now I see why apple decided not to have the ability to pair the watch with any band when ordering...

    My guess is that if you had the ability to customize the band included with the watch less people would have bought the stainless steel version.

    It's liable to fly away, especially with the magnetic strap.

    Here's a photo of the black leather band with the space gray Apple Watch Sport. I personally love the combination (notice the lack of "wings") and have already ordered both!

    I'm amazed the store allowed you to try a 38mm watch with a 42 mm band... they're not even supposed to let you swap bands (allegedly) but that seems like a major no go.

    My experience wasn't much better. I ask the employee to swap bands and he says "Whoa. No way I wanna go there man. Not even going to try." Another employee comes over and says thats one of the basics to even trying on the watch.

    So THAT's why I'm delayed to May. YOU bought the only 2 space gray Apple Sport Watches that were available. :)

    Is the watch a 38mm or 42mm? If it's the latter that would explain the lack of wings.

    Despite the wings from the wrong sized band looking really tacky, the combination itself looks pretty good. It really makes me think of the first-gen iPhone, which will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I love that this is a thing now. I'm going to use this all the time to describe people who wear things in poor taste or are otherwise exhibiting a serious fashion faux-pas. He brought this on himself, haha.
