    Happy :apple:Watch day.

    Wondering why you can't buy a White sports strap with a Stainless Steel clasp and connectors? It only comes with aluminium connections.

    You can only get it if you buy the Stainless Steel watch, it comes as standard.

    The Black version you can choose the metal on the band.

    Why Apple WHY!?

    Not sure what you mean. The sport band is entirely made out of rubber and plastic, apart from the pin which is stainless steel for every band/watch. It doesn't have any metal connectors at all, and no aluminium whatsoever, even for the sport Watch.

    I think they're referring to the little pin that holds it together?

    I'm pretty sure, according to the site at least, that they all have a silver stainless steel pin. The only exception is a second option for the black band which has space grey coloured pin, presumably to match the space grey Sport.

    Sorry yea I meant where the strap connects to the watch. If you buy the strap on its own you get an alluminium one. You can't buy a stainless steel version unless you buy it with the watch.

    It's just me being really particular about it #

    I'm going to order a black band for my white 42 sport, but am having a hard time deciding whether go with a regular black band or the space grey black band.

    What do you guys think?

    I'd personally go for the regular black band as you have the silver sport, I feel like the space grey black band is like the "special" band just for space grey, not that anyone will be looking at the pin anyway! But yeah, my vote is for regular :)

    Err, like I said, the band is all polymer, except for the metal pin (for adjusting the size/tightness). The bit where it connects to the watch is also polymer (because each strap is all one solid homogenous piece). It's not aluminium, and not steel either. :) So you don't need to fret, heh. They're all exactly the same. :)

    I mean the small push buttons you press to remove the bands

    The buttons are part of the watch case.
