    I got my Apple Watch 4 Gold SS 44mm On 21st Sept and with that I am using these bands. Only the first 4 I have bought this month for my gold watch, while rest I have been collecting since series 1.

    1) original Gold SS Milanese loop (came with my watch)
    2) original stone sport band with gold pin (bought off someone who didn’t want to use it)
    3) original blue indigo sport loop
    4) original black sport loop
    5) original silver SS Milanese loop
    6) original silver link bracelet
    7) 3rd Party Black link bracelet
    8) 3rd party black Milanese loop
    9) 3rd party brown leather loop
    10) catalyst blue sport band with red contrast
    11) 3rd party navy blue with white nike sport band with silver pin
    12) 3rd party black with red Nike sport band with silver pin
    13) 3rd party light blue sport band with silver pin
    14) 3rd party olive green nylon strap with silver buckle
    15) 3rd party black leather strap with silver clasp

    I am thinking which of these I should replace with new band suitable for the Gold SS.

    Which bands are you guys using for your Gold SS Apple Watch?

    Got a few old ones collected from my S0 and S2 that still pair quite well with the Gold SS:

    Sports band:
    - Black
    - Cocoa
    - Midnight Blue
    - Blue Horizon
    - White
    - Fog
    - Stone
    - Grey
    - Yellow

    Sport Loop:
    - Black
    - Storm Grey

    Leather Loop:
    - Black
    - Midnight Blue

    Milanese:
    - Gold waiting to be delivered.

    Also got a leather handmade one from Etsy and a 3rd party black link and Milanese.

    I really like the look of the forest green leather loop too.

    Yeah I have been eyeing the forest green leather loop. Looks nice with gold

    Any good leather band with gold connectors? Matching the gold of the new SS

    Many on Etsy seems to now offer the option to have S4 gold stainless steel connector options. I’ve ordered one, will see how closely they are able to match the colour.

    Have the 44mm SS Gold.

    Sport bands: Stone, White, midnight blue.

    Leather loop: Stone

    Milanese: Black

    Currently thinking about getting the white sport band (supposedly it's a new tone of white. More gray in it) and the cape cod leather loop.

    My favorite so far is the toasted coffee nylon- matches perfectly!

    There used to be a web page (at apple.com even?) where you could pick a case colour and swipe through the bands to get a feel for how they look together. I can't find it anymore. Does anybody know the page I mean, or where it is?

    I'm also looking for band options that match the gold SS4. All the leather bands seem to have silver buckles...

    Has anyone found gold SS lugs that match perfect with the new gold? I want to put them on my classic saddle brown leather band...

    I am looking for one too.

    Monowear has bands with gold connectors.

    I use the black sport loop for working out, and the storm grey sport loop the rest of the time.

    Not sure how good these photos are but I had ordered a gold Milanese loop from Casetify intending to get my wife’s gold with a sport band. Ended up getting the Apple Milanese instead and now apparently can’t return the Casetify as it was on sale... not thrilled with that but l..

    Colors are similar, magnet is strong, slightly less in width that the lug slot but not awful. Paid $66 on sale right now. *you can see some marks on the back of the magnet, I think however they apply their logo peeled off a bit*

    Too bad they don’t sell it anymore. No more nylon straps

    Do the gold connectors match our SS? I emailed monowear and they said they are working on Gold SS connectors. I don't know if the Series 3 gold connectors they have match our color all that well.

    I use my gold Milanese Loop and the Hibiscus Sport Loop. It looks soooo good!

    I doubt Monowear’s old gold connectors match. However, some China companies are coming up with some gold connectors.

    At this point the Rose Gold connectors match better than the gold ones.

    The space grey Milanese loop looks very nice with the gold SS.
