I'm looking to expand my band collection, but I don't see too many photos of bands with the gold SS. So far I have:
  • Black Sport Band
  • Stone Sport Band (with gold SS pin)
  • Gold Milanese
  • Nike Black Reflective Sport Loop
  • Hibiscus Sport Loop
  • Pride Bands (2017, 2018, & 2019)
  • Dragon Fruit Sport Loop
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!


Edit: I’ve added a few more bands to my collection that I think look great with the gold SS!
  • Rose Red sport band
  • Toasted Coffee/caramel nylon (this has to be my favorite, definitely up there with the Milanese. The color match is stunning.)
  • Nike Bright Crimson/Black sport loop
  • Lavender Gray sport band
  • Hyper Grape sport loop
  • Antique White sport band

I’ve only had my SSG for a month, so I’ll probably pick up a few more bands in the coming weeks. My next bands will probably be the Nike Teal Tint Sport Loop, Stone Leather Loop, & Cornflower Leather Loop.

Current bands:
• Stone Sport Band (gold pin)
• Gold Milanese Loop
• Dragon Fruit Sport Loop

Nice! I hadn't considered the teal tint color with the gold. I'll have to see if I can find an image of the two together. Times like these I wish I lived closer to an Apple Store.

Since you’re not close to an Apple Store, you can use Apple’s interactive site to see what the bands might look like on your watch.

BTW...Spruce Fog looks pretty nice too

I've actually already tried that. I was hoping the interactive gallery would have an option to see the watch from different angles to get a more accurate view of how to colors mesh together, but it didn't. Thanks for the suggestion though! This may be my only option for now.

There’s a few pics forward the end of the summer band thread.

You can also check out The Juan & Only YouTube channel. He buys almost every band and has a gold watch. Good Luck!

I purchased the black sport loop first thing this morning & I love how the colors in it look with the gold stainless.

I’m loving this combo! I’ve always ignored this loop online because I wasn’t sure how the colors in the black loop would look with the gold ss, but it looks really nice!

Thank you! I was actually in the Apple store to check out the canary & cornflower sport loops & the black was the one that caught my eye. It’s so versatile ...I really love it.

Teal tint Nike Sport Loop & Pink Sand Sport Loop.

Okay, I have always loved the teal tint color but I never thought to order it because I never imagined it would look nice with the gold. I’m so surprised, this is a really great color combo!

I’ll post some when I get home. I have on the Milanese loop right now.

Hope these help!

Great images! Thank you for the multi-angle photos!


Also, I've updated the list above, but in case anyone else was looking for bands for the gold stainless steel, I've picked up these and they look great!
  • Rose Red sport band
  • Toasted Coffee/caramel nylon (this has to be my favorite, definitely up there with the Milanese. The color match is stunning.)
  • Nike Bright Crimson/Black sport loop
  • Lavender Gray sport band
  • Hyper Grape sport loop
  • Antique White sport band
I definitely need to pace myself lol, but I'm eyeing the teal tine sport loop and the canary yellow sport loop next.

I just have the stone band that came with it (likely going to get rid of it), and a few others from past watches. I prefer the sport loops though, and I have enjoyed looking through the photos and suggestions. Unfortunately, now I need like $500 and an intervention! LOL I didn't know there was an interactive to see the bands with the watch, and now I am in love. I have a dark teal colored sport band (not sure of the Apple name) that looks amazing with the gold, so I might used that as well.

These forums are definitely bad for the wallet

I ended up buying the lilac sport loop a few days ago, and I finally found the Teal Tint Nike Sport Loop at Best Buy. I have been looking everywhere for it but it has been sold out on Apple for a bit. I love the way the gold pulls the color out of the lilac band.

I found my Teal Tint at Best Buy too. I love the color!!! Can you post a pic of the lilac on your watch? I’ve been on the fence with that one & haven’t seen one in person.

This is in my yucky office light, but it gives a good idea of what it looks like. The gold really picks up the strands in the watch!

I searched everywhere, even Best Buy at one point. Something just told me to go look one more time, and there it was! Do you have any pics of it? Mine should be here Tuesday. :)
