    Hi everybody,

    a short question: Can anybody tell me if an Omega Speedmaster stainless steel bracelet (like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n1OpHiH2-s) will fit on the Apple Watch? I THINK it is 42mm - so, if yes, I guess I also have to buy the 42mm Apple Watch version...?

    Thanks in advance for the info!

    Good to know. Thanks a lot for the answer!

    Investing in the stainless steel bracelet from Apple surely is a hard decision considering we don't even know yet if it will still fit on the Gen 2 model ...

    There will likely be 3rd-party adapters out so you can use any band you want with the Apple Watch. I'd be surprised if they're not shipping before the watch is. :)

    Same goes for all kinds of 3rd-party bands. In fact, I'll be surprised if knock offs of the more desirable Apple bands don't appear on eBay any day now for a fraction of the price. That reminds me, I need to make a few calls to China ;)

    I think cheap knockoffs are a sure thing, but an adapter for regular watch bands, I'm not so sure. Any designs for such an adapter I can think of seems awkward and make the watch not comfortable to wear.

    Already on Kickstarter...

    If not them, I'm sure someone will do it. Although I agree it may not be a great alternative.

    Yeah. See how wide the adapter is, compared to the sample band? That's the part that worries me. I'm not sure how that difference in width will affect the stability and comfort of the watch around your wrist. Maybe I'm wrong and it'll be fine. But we won't know for sure until someone makes one and we can try it.
