Why The Sport covers all sizes, and the others don't.

    Watches used for various outdoor activities need to have bands that can adjust large enough to go over sleeves and gloves in winter. With winter garments, it's difficult to see a watch covered up. I've done this myself while skiing, backpacking, jogging, etc. Either over the sleeve or over the glove if it's long.

    You'll lose the HRM if you do this, but if that's important you can wear a Polar Bluetooth strap for like $60. You'll also lose Apple Pay, but who cares.

    Scuba divers do this over their wet suits, but we won't see the Apple Watch used for diving for several years. :p

    Also because they knew that they would sell the most sports since it is the cheapest, and therefore needed to fit the widest audience possible

    They'll be selling millions and millions of SS Watch. That same "problem" exists for that. Apple simply asks people to order the size they need.

    I know, but since the sport band is the only option for the sport collection, it makes sense that it fits all sizes

    If that were the case, all sizes would be accommodated by ordering the one you need. Just like the SS. The rubber band on the SS is not meant to be thrown away.

    Ah, I'm afraid I misunderstood what you were saying. When you said "sport" for some reason I thought you were talking about the watch itself.

    My apologies
