    Do you think a man can wear the white sports band without looking feminine?

    Sure. But when you turn your wrist to pay with Apple Pay, the inside will remind you of a hospital band, like it should have your name on there :)

    Testosterone pumping through my heart and measured by an apple watch secured to a white band!

    Wear whatever the heck you want to and don't give a damn.

    I also have the white sport band. I'm a guy.

    I have to say, if you ask questions like this, you're probably not going to feel comfortable wearing it anyway.

    I am guessing I should not drive my wife's white car, no more white sock for me, no more white underwear, no more white tennis shoes, no more white dress shirts, and no more white t-shirt.
    Don't want to get caught with not manly white on anywhere on my body and even worst, sit in it, let along an approx. 1" by 4" watch band. Any of above white item will be larger and look significantly less manly than that tiny 1" by 4" band.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, no more white toilet for me also. Sitting in white toilet doing my business definitely not manly at all. :)

    It's just hard to imagine what i will look like in real life.

    Unfortunately I do not live in one of the launch countries.

    So i had to order based on pics and opinions which are sometimes inaccurate.

    So are people of the opinion that Tim Cook is feminine?

    It looks much better in person, let's put it that way.

    Good enough for me to cancel two other bands I had on order. Garnered a lot of compliments, too.

    So yes. I think it works just fine.

    If you think a white band makes you look feminine bud that's the least of your worries !!

    To be fair, I draw the line at white socks! :p

    In all seriousness, the only one that looks remotely feminine is the pink, but even that can be pulled off.

    Not that there is anything wrong with that, right? :)

    White will get filthy whilst doing manly activities, wait for third party bands if you aren't into manicures and skinny jeans...

    Yes, completely fine. White is a gender neutral color for sure. It's all personal taste.

    Actually the white band has stayed looking perfect. The couple of times it did get a little dirty it rinsed up good as new. My only long term concern is the blue from denim rubbing off on the band. Had this issue with my Fitbit. We'll see...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Tim Cook qualifies as a bro. In fact that's the reason I chose white. I'd prefer red or another standard color like just green or blue instead of baby blue and lime green. I plan on also getting either a blue leather loop or Milanese loop later, but for sport stuff I wanted the white. Even matches my iPhone.

    I've been rocking a white band since 4.24 and have a pink band on order, as a 35 year old man.

    Agree. Brown skin here, the pastels look terrible on me, white looks great.

    Nice shirt, btw!
