    Why is the pin on the sport bands made of stainless steel and not on aluminium like the Apple Sport Watch case. I know you can get the sport bands with the Apple Watch and Edition, but the sport bands are mainly for the sport watches right? Why are they not aluminium to match?

    Probably because they're using the same Sport bands for both the Sport and SS collections. It doesn't matter anyway because the pin is circular brushed, unlike the matte aluminum or polished SS watch case. It's basically something in between that's compatible with both.

    However, the Space Gray sport band has the stainless steel pin in Space Gray so they're matched in color.
