    I have a 42mm Sport with white sport band, and a 42mm Stainless with black sport band. Trying to decide which to keep.

    Which would you keep and why?

    SS has a nicer build and the Sapphire crystal is big plus.

    I'd go with the black band as I prefer this to the white.

    What if I swap the black band onto the sport. That make a difference in answers?

    I'd go with the stainless steel since it has a sapphire screen and goes better with a greater variety of bands.

    Yes. Again assuming as someone mentioned above, cost difference doesn't matter to you.

    Go with the proper watch and not the toy watch if you can afford it

    Go with the classy watch as opposed to the cheap fitness band version

    To me, the color of the band is not the issue, because you can always swap it out with different band later. The SS version just look so much better in my opinion, and the sapphire face is definitely a big plus.

    I'm a sport guy. It's where the smarter money goes because there is no functional difference between Sport and regular other than case and sapphire glass. (I'm not anal and don't have nightmares involving me scratching my watch beyond recognition. I've never scratched a watch. I've bloodied up my arms in goofy falls running. I've scraped my rims parallel parking. I scuffed brand new shoes first time out. I've never scratched the glass of a watch. I think the odds are incredibly low.)

    I'd go for the SS with WSB, so swap the bands ;)

    If you're not worried about the cost difference, keep the stainless with the band color you prefer. My preference is white. ;)

    The stainless might get scratched, but less chance it will dent or develop gouges. The sapphire crystal won't scratch as easily (if at all) as the ion glass will. Yes, you can buy screen protectors and cases, but I think that's ridiculous for a watch and the cost of those would reduce the difference in price between the two models anyway. The sport may look sportier, but the stainless absolutely looks classier.

    SS. Prefer the WSB in person myself, but to each their own!

    This is a decision only you can make. Why would you expect a bunch of strangers on the internet to make it for you.

    Personally, I think black is too generic. I personally am going to avoid a black watch band.

    I really like my Sport White sport band combo. Although I may consider green and pink bands as well.

    Not asking anyone to make the decision for me...just wondering what others think. Isn't that what a poll is for??
