So I want to buy an Apple Watch but I can't decide on the colour. I want either a space gray or rose gold Apple Watch. Also, does the pebble colour band look good on space gray?

In a related question: I can't decide on lunch tomorrow. Should I have a chicken or turkey sandwich for lunch tomorrow?
It doesn't matter. Turkey tastes like chicken and rose gold looks like pink :)

Space Gray would be my choice. I like the stealthy muted black tone and there are plenty of bands to match.

Rose Gold has a burnt hue tone, which I think would be harder to pair bands with.

Well... since we're letting total strangers make decisions for us... should I be intimate with my wife tonight or wait until tomorrow?

I picked space gray, because I think the darker color fits the black LCD better, and matches with many bands easier.

It's akin picking a black-face iPhone or white-face iPhone. Some prefer on over the other, and vice versa. For the Apple Watch, I don't particularly like the contrast between the shiny silver with the black LCD.

Silver, rose gold, or gold caused distraction - I see young people with gold Watch make me think they are rich. Anyway I have a gold SS LG Watch Urbane I used few times.

The space black stainless watch and the Apple Watch display blend in perfectly. They both have that glossy, shiny inky tone that match perfectly.
