    Due to the new mix of watch types on the website, you can no longer order Sport Bands with the exception of Black w/ the SB AW. I decided to take the plunge on the following...

    -SS AW w/ Pearl Woven Nylon
    -Yellow Sport Band
    -(PRODUCT)Red Sport Band

    I have no idea what the nylon will feel or look like in the wild but I will post pics on Thurs when it arrives.

    Also, has anyone seen the amazing looking Storm Gray Classic Buckle? That's next..

    Did you get it yet? I ordered a Gold Sport with gold nylon band on launch day and it arrived an hour ago. Just setting it up now.

    Just got it an hour ago too. Here are real-life Pearl images...

    I think its a really neat color. Hard to describe it's like woven black and grey/silver. They need a green/taupe-ish color next.

    Looks really cool! I kinda want the black nylon one to go with my space grey sport but i don't think I want to shell out the $50. Looks sweet though, how do you like the fell of it?

    Not trying to thread jack but that is what I just got. Looks great, feels great. A nice bit of variety.

    Is the stainless steel buckle as nice as the classic buckle one? They look the same.

    Looks like they modified the Classic Buckle once again (for the 2nd time). They added the stitching, which was previously found only on the Classic Buckles that came with the AW Edition.

    The nylon strap looks kind of funny/narrow relative to the AW body (where they meet at the connectors).

    I know. I always wanted the Midnight Blue version previously only available with the Edition. Was about to buy a Saddle Brown last week but waited and glad I did. Ordered the Midnight Blue today. Really happy the stitching has finally made it to the non gold Classic Buckle. The only issue is that there are now too many to desire. The Storm Grey and 'new' stitched Saddle Brown are appealing also.

    That stormy gray looks beautiful online but I want to see it in person. The Apple guy didn't even know they had released it and kept referring me to the gray leather loop which I was not a fan of at all.

    Could you please check if the nylon band is the same thickness as the sport band? I know there is no taper on the nylon band but if it is the same thickness as the sport band I may get one. I'm not entirely liking how narrow it looks where it meets the watch. A photo would be great of them overlaid. Thanks a lot.

    I ordered the black nylon, but I might have to consider the Pearl. It looks really nice. On my Space Black SS, the black nylon might be best though.

    I've cracked and ordered the Pearl nylon strap (and the existing orange sport strap which I've been coveting for a while). I'm surprised by how much I like the Scuba Blue nylon strap; I think that may be one for summer (if we get one; I'm in the UK so it's far from certain).

    Picked up my Woven Nylon in store today. Brought it home, put it on my watch and one of lugs is broken. The band otherwise is very nice. I like the feel of the material. Sad that I have to take it. Idk if my store had any more left in the pearl color.

    SS owner here as well.

    I love the pearl band, but does the different coloured lugs compared to the watch annoy anyone else? I'm unsure if it will bother me enough not to get it.

    Local Apple Store opens on Friday again after refurbishment so might check one out then.

    It's supposed to be a stylistic feature and can be pretty striking depending on the combo (blue with gold, etc.)

    Yep I don't like it either looks nasty. I wish they had done the nylon straps proper, with lugs like the leather bands and a polished buckle not brushed.

    I think it would have been a great strap if they had came with the metal lugs. The lower price point would also have been the perfect opportunity to introduce straps with Aluminium lugs to match the AWS. Overall I think this would look better than the coloured plastic at each end.

    Thanks for sharing. I've been quite interested in the pearl color, love the grayish look it has.

    I was able to try a nylon band of a different color last week. Quite impressed how comfortable it was. Decent price too, I honestly thought they were going to slot it in at $99 (between the $49 sport bands and $149 CB/LL/Milanese bands).

    Awesome how the band selection is growing so much. Just sucks as there's so much I'd buy but trying not to go overboard with them all.

    In pictures it almost looks like a variety of Milanese loop. Almost. Not if I look really closely. Anyway it's quite attractive and thank you all for sharing photos of it.
