    Hey everyone,

    Been working on something for the past six months, and this seemed like a good place to share and ask for feedback.

    I bought a space gray Apple Watch series 2 last fall, and after purchase, was a bit disheartened. I realized that if I wanted a silicone band for wearing at the gym or while running, there were no bands that I could buy where the latching pin that fastens the watch would match my space gray. I looked at every 3rd party, all over Amazon, and no luck. I was stuck with silver if I wanted any extra bands.

    So I took this into my own hands and had some made, and would love feedback. I call them ToneBands, and they're the only bands with black metal latching pins. Attaching photos of white and gray, to show what I mean.

    Anyways, would love feedback. We just released a few days ago at ToneBands.com, but really just want to know what people think, and if this seems like a good idea, or if I wasted a bunch of money investing in these lol.

    Aren't the Apple Nike bands have black pin? I have the Anthracite/Black Nike band and it has black pin.

    Good point, a couple of the Nike bands, and then the black sport band from Apple come with black pins. We wanted to offer pins like that to other colors. White was the one I wanted the most and that we lead with, along with gray and Lavender.

    We want to hit gold watches soon. Basically, if you get a watch that isn't silver, your band choice is much more limited, and we wanted to try to help with that.

    As a vast percentage of the Apple Watches sold are space grey (plus quite a few in space black), I would imagine there is certainly a market for straps with better matching pins. Gold and rose gold may be more of a niche; OTOH buyers of rose and rose gold watches may be more "fashionable" and hence more likely to buy additional watch bands.
