    All watches have two "spacers" and one "locking pin".
    The pin makes sense, it snaps the band in the locking mechanism.
    But the other two outside spacers, I can't see a purpose.
    On the Sport band they're rather hard plastic, while they are more rubbery on some other bands.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you think is their purpose? My guess would be some kind of gliding aid, like the teflon on some mouses

    Prevent the band from "rocking" once it's mounted on the Watch body?
