Apple Watch flying 001

It’s been a long time coming, but now that we know just what the Apple Watch will cost, how much we will need to pay for additional bands and when pre-orders will be open, the only thing left to do is choose which Apple Watch will order.

At least, that’s how it seems to us here at iDB. After months of waiting for concrete information on availability and pricing, the decision on whether to actually pick up an Apple Watch was one that didn’t need much thinking about. The argument over whether to plump for the Apple Watch Edition was taken out of our hands by its price, too, so really all it comes down to is whether the Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport is the watch for you.

The iDB team got to discussing this very subject recently and we thought that discussion might be an interesting one to share with everyone. After all, if you guys are struggling to make a decision as much as we were, then every little bit of help is no doubt appreciated.

So, with that elongated preamble of the way, let’s see what the iDB team will be ordering come April 10th.

Which Apple Watch will you be ordering and why?

Oliver Haslam
I’ll be choosing the Apple Watch Sport in Black. Probably 42-mm, but I’m still not 100% sure yet! The one I wanted before pricing was confirmed is just too expensive for me to justify, especially considering we don’t really know how much this thing will get used yet.

Sebastien Page
Tough decision! I have actually changed my mind a dozen times so far about what model I’d want. As it stands now, I think I will go with the 42mm Sport model, but I suspect they might be unavailable very quickly once pre-orders begin. If that’s the case, I’ll just go for the stainless steel version, also in 42mm.

It’s really hard to make a decision without actually seeing it first, so my strategy is to pre-order the most inexpensive model I can once pre-orders begin, then go in store to actually see the different models and then adjust my pre-order accordingly, or if needed return my watch to Apple once I receive it and get the model I really want.

Timothy Reavis
After much inward debate, I’ve decided to pre-order the stainless steel Apple Watch, as its durability and quality of materials is, to me, considerably higher than that of the Apple Watch Sport. I’m getting the 42mm size, because, while my wrists are relatively thin, the 38mm just seems too small for me.

Cody Lee
I will be pre-ordering an Apple Watch as soon as it becomes available on April 10. The model has changed a few times already, but for the moment I’m fairly confident I will be getting the 42mm Space Gray Apple Watch Sport with the black band.

Lory Gil
This first year in its existence, I will be buying the 38mm Apple Watch Sport with Space Gray case and black band. Since this is Apple’s first version of Apple Watch, I can’t justify spending $300 extra dollars to buy the model I originally wanted (stainless steel case with Classic Buckle). I’m getting the 38mm size because the larger model would probably look funny on my tiny wrist.

Christian Zibreg
Given my wallet hasn’t yet recovered from Apple’s action-packed Fall 2014 — I’m definitely going to go with the least expensive $399 Apple Watch Sport, 42mm (yes, I suffer from astigmatism) in Space Gray.

Jeff Benjamin
Although I always like to reserve my right to change my mind, once, twice, or seven times, I’m leaning heavily towards the 38mm version of the Apple Watch.

For a device that I plan on wearing on my wrist for the majority of the time that I’m awake, I want something that’s light and not too heavy. The 38mm version of the Apple Watch is, by default, lighter than the 42mm version.

Since this is a first-gen product, I’m going with the Sport Edition. At this early stage in the history of wearable devices, I reason that it’s best to stick with the cheapest option, especially since there are no technical differences between it and the more expensive models.

Fashion is important to me, but I’m not ready to invest heavily in a first-gen device that’s a tech product first and a fashion-statement second. A few iterations down the line and my tune may change.

Color-wise, I’m leaning towards the black aluminum with the black sport band. It’s low-key and doesn’t look as cheap as some of the other Apple Watch Sport alternatives. This combination also happens to be the lightest version of the Apple Watch that you can buy.

Which Apple Watch band will you choose to go with it and why?

Oliver
Black, but only because I’m boring. I like the other colors but I fear they may stand out a little too much for my tastes.

Sebastien
Once again, it’s hard to tell without seeing them in person. If I manage to get the Sport version I want, I will go with the white band. The band on my Pebble is white and I think it is a color that really stands out without being too flashy like blue or green could be.

Timothy
I’ll be going with the white sport band, as it appears to be a good all-purpose band that doesn’t add a lot of cost to the watch, and if third parties are able to make bands for the Apple Watch, I’ll consider them as I’m sure many of them will be much less expensive.

Cody
My reasons for choosing this setup are fairly straightforward. I want the larger 42mm screen because I feel like with such a small display, every millimeter counts towards touch accuracy and visibility. I’m leaning towards the Space Gray Sport model because it looks sharp and won’t break the bank. And I like the black band because it’s less likely to show dirt, stains and other blemishes than the brighter-colored bands.

Lory
Black, to match the Space Gray watch.

Christian
A Black Sport Band. I’ll be taking this thing to the gym and outdoors a lot so while a white band would admittedly look more elegant and aesthetically pleasing, I’m concerned about the fluoroelastomer material potentially attracting dirt and dust over time.

Jeff
The stock black band that comes with my Apple Watch Sport.

Will you be ordering any extra watch bands, and if so, which ones?

Oliver
At those prices? Nope. I did want something metallic, but I just can’t justify it. Maybe next time.

Sebastien
I will likely order more bands once I can see them in store. Right now, I am thinking about the stainless steel link bracelet and the Stone or Black leather loop.

Timothy
For the above reason, I won’t order any additional bands initially, but will certainly consider one or two more if the Apple Watch only accepts proprietary bands.

Cody
I’ll probably also grab black and brown leather straps for more formal outings.

Lory
I won’t be investing in an additional official Apple band. The prices of Apple’s bands are terribly high and my hope is that there are third-party accessory makers already devising a way to make unofficial (and less expensive) bands. I can wait for them. Even if no one manages to properly make third-party Apple Watch bands, waiting a few months before purchasing a fancier band from Apple will ease the pain on my wallet.

Christian
The Apple Watch is a fashionable accessory so I’ll be ordering a spare band, but haven’t yet decided on the exact color. Due to its dark, subdued appearance, the Apple Watch Sport in Space Gray may not mash well with those bright-colored bands so I’ll have to see all the bands in person and try them out on my wrist before making an informed purchasing decision.

Jeff
Nope. I want to go into this as cheaply as possible, because I’m likely buying two Apple Watches at launch. Perhaps later on down the line I’ll look into alternative bands.

Which feature or potential app are you looking forward to the most?

Oliver
If I’m honest, I don’t know yet and I think that’s a good thing. I’m buying the Apple Watch for potential, and we won’t see that truly realized until developers get their teeth into this thing properly. Should I wait until then instead of buying an Apple Watch at launch? Probably, but I’m impatient and like new toys!

Sebastien
As a Pebble user who knows the limitations of that device, the one feature I’m looking forward to the most is the ability to reply to text messages directly from my wrist. This will be a huge time saver for all those messages that usually don’t require a long reply.

I am confident that many of the apps I use on a daily basis will have a watch extension so that’s something I’m pretty excited about. For example, being able to quickly reply to chats in Slack app from Apple Watch will be another time saver.

Timothy
The features about which I’m most excited include the health and fitness tracking and the convenience of the device in general. My iPhone will stay in my pocket a lot more, especially at social events, while I’ll still be able to see what’s happening, and that’s great for me. I’m also looking forward to having Workflow and Wunderlist on my Apple Watch, as both would be incredible for productivity. Really though, I’m just excited about seeing everything developers have done with Apple Watch over the past few months.

Cody
As for what app or feature I’m looking forward to, that’s tough to say. I’ve had Fitbits and Jawbones in the past, so I’m anxious to see how well the fitness tracking works. I’m also intrigued by the drawing and tap-to-communicate stuff. Overall, though, I think I’m most excited for the ability to view and act on notifications without unlocking my phone. I fully agree with the sentiment that your smartphone can be a black hole of distractions, and feel like the Apple Watch can lessen your chances of getting sucked in.

Lory
As for apps that I look forward to, I know I’ll be downloading the ETA companion app so I can easily see how long it is going to take me to get from one place to another. I’m pretty sure I’ll get the Pinterest companion, since I regularly update my boards. TL;DR Email will be the perfect email client for my wrist. If Feedly doesn’t make an Apple Watch app, I’ll grab Feed Wrangler instead. Google better make a companion Maps app because I don’t want to have to rely on Apple Maps. MileWiz looks fun because it collects all of your driving data. I’m sure I’ll fill up my storage capacity with many, many more, but I’ve got to start somewhere.

Christian
I couldn’t care less about the Watch’s timekeeping functions that Apple’s advertising focuses on heavily. But health and fitness is that killer feature I’m really, really looking forward to. Blogging for a living isn’t a very healthy lifestyle, that’s why I try to move more these days and hit they gym on a regular basis.

As for the killer feature, to me it’s health and fitness tracking as I’ve stated before. With that in mind, I don’t think killer features make sense nowadays. When the iPhone came out, Apple did position it as three devices in one — a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a phone and an Internet communicator — but soon after that mantra turned into anything-you-want-it-to-be with the advent of the App Store.

In my mind, the same logic applies to the Watch. Apple may be advertising it today as a fashionable yet functional device for tracking your health and fitness, monitoring notifications from your wrist and keeping in touch with others, but it’s the apps that will let any user personalize it the way they want.

One person’s killer feature could easily be another person’s sore spot. Apple realizes this, that’s why they gave the Watch an App Store of its own to begin with.

Jeff
For anyone who’s listened to Let’s Talk iOS, you’re probably expecting me to say sending heartbeats. But on a more serious note, I’m looking forward to just existing and being present in the current reality without being so attached to my phone. If Apple Watch can help me do that, which I think it will, then that will by be my favorite feature.

  • ravinigga

    I hope there are 3rd party bands. So the customization is unlimited also cheaper.

    • rfow

      I saw this accessory that slides into the band connector on the watch face and adds hinges so that one could apply actual watch bands to the Watch.

      • Alex

        yep they’re called “Clicks” and will be going on Kickstarter tomorrow!!

      • SoylentGreen

        This is what ppl want, options to deviate from the canned goods, hope you make plenty 🙂

    • Tommy

      Don’t worry. It will be out in a jiffy from China. Bands which will probably cost you less than 10 bucks.

  • Jonnathan R

    Ok good shit guys

  • Valinor

    Looks like most people are going for the space grey edition.

    I’m interested in the black band space grey sports watch 42mm.

    Black band: other ones look cheap and to colorful. Black also low key, will match with almost all your outfits. Also stains wont be visible on black.
    Space grey: looks sleaker then aluminium silver.
    Sports: cheapest version, cant justify paying 500+ for a first gen device that wont be able to last a full day.(you will use it more then apple tells you, so you will have to charge it during the day.)
    42mm: even if it will look bulky on small wrists, you can justify it by being a tech gadget.
    Its not as pretty as an rolex omega or iwc for example so dont act like it is. Its an ugly watch (most non techie people think its ok or ugly)
    So i dont want an “ugly” watch, pay that much money for it and it being also the smaller version…. Also the size difference is not that big. As i said, justifyable it being a tech gadget.

    Favorite functions: navigation while walking and music control.

    But then I saw the prices….. Way more then I expected. 350 euro for 42mm would have been great. 450 euro not so much…….
    So im skipping this generation. See you next year.

    • Gary le

      Wait… Navigation? You mean gps tracking while connecting iphone? But without u can only track distances and not location.

      • Valinor

        Yeah i meant connected to the iphone. Walking around and watching my wrist for directions. Dont feel comfortable walking at night or in some neighbourhoods with my phone in my hand all the time if I need to go somewhere. With a watch you can glance at it for 1 sec and continue walking. Less conspicuous.

  • El Matador

    Sebastien keeping the American economy going will all these great employees! #americandream

    • SoylentGreen

      Tell that to the workers in China two minutes prior to them deciding suicide is the only way out of not making their unrealistic work targets and losing their chances took remain a slave,

      • yourmomsbox

        What happened to just quit lol?

      • hoits2000

        Stop spreading lies. The commit suicide because they make more money all at once for their families for the suicide payment from the company then they would working there in the short run. Its not the work itself or the conditions.

      • SoylentGreen

        What are you a trendy lib? anti human?
        It’s documented all over.
        Disgusting. You should be ashamed
        #KeepTakingYourShots

  • Now I’m thinking about buying one just to resell it. All I read on sites is everyone wants the space grey/black. Could make some easy money on the preorder. So much hype for a device that offers very little.

    • Merman123

      Hey I’m curious. I see this comment a lot. What are some features you think the Apple Watch is missing, to the point that you’d say it offers very little? Genuinely curious.

      • Well first of all there’s no space for applications, it relies only on your phone. Therefore if you do need a quick application such as checking a baseball score you can’t do that. Also it doesn’t have built in wifi, again because it relies on your phone your not able to directly ask siri questions. Not a big deal to some, but if I’m eating and I leave my phone in the car, which i typically do, it would be nice to have wifi on the device so I can still connect to the internet on it to grab information at a quick glance. Those are just two big ones. The biggest scam of a device like this, it’s not for one person. If you love technology but don’t know many people who will purchase this, then your out of luck. The gimmick 3 touch sense applications do nothing for the device. Seriously, people are going to send a heartbeat? It looks like an animated gif, the walmart faces on it that your can edit you could easily do on your phone. And finally the drawing pictures on the device having them show up on someone elses? Yeah if your a kid that makes sense, but who’s going to draw on a small device like this? Again these are just some issues with the device, don’t get me started on how grossly overpriced it is. You can get much better for your buck elsewhere. The thing is cause it’s Apple people flock to it, over hype it and act like this is the first smart watch ever to hit the market. When really they just put shiny gloss over the top of what has already been released and dumbed it down. They didn’t put all the health sensors in it that would have been worth the price. Generation 2 will smoke Generation 1 and then it could be worth the price because it will be a game changer. But this device is coming out and is already behind in technology.

      • Merman123

        I’m sure there is allocated space for applications. Also, the specs show WiFi as a feature. Maybe we’re missing something? The two scenarios you mention are pretty rare, but to each its own. I don’t think the drawing feature is a huge selling point, it’s just another feature. You’re holding on to it as if it were the first thing they showcase. Don’t like it? Don’t use that feature. I think it’s a great device for a 1st generation and at $349. Thanks for responding!

      • Valinor

        Wasnt it? The showcase was all about distracting people from the lack of revolutionary functions.
        First you had the part about the supermodel doing charity and running a marathon. The watch was mentioned once because she used it while running the marathon and it really helped her like no other product could. Not telling us how etc.
        More charity talk, randomly dropping the word: apple watch.
        Then after the video she came on stage and they were standing there just repeating the words: “its really great” over and over again. I still dont know why its so great?
        I allready have a bluetooth heartrate sensor that connects to my phone and the battery lasts 6 months. That is great.
        Then they talked about those smilies, the heartbeat. Ok fun, but seriously you have to talk that much about this useless function.
        Yeah the part about using it for calls was indeed cool but before you knew it, they were talking about prices and everyone was shocked and had allready forgotten the make calls part.
        Also while the US gets an ok price, europe gets ripped off. We have to pay 399 euro for the cheapest version. Thats 421 dollars.
        Apple used to copy the prices 1:1, so 349 dollars would become 349 euro. Which was still more expensive for us because 349 dollars was around 290 euros back then.

      • SoylentGreen

        Well put.
        what baffles me a bit is the fact that it’s got no more tech that a Dollar watch, its miles behind in comparison to existing wearables, ppl with a pebble will have this in the drawer within the month.
        If nothing else, history shows that first iterations of tech devices become ridiculously lacking as soon as version 2 comes out.
        Oh well, it’s their cash.

      • Dhoklastellar Fafda®™

        Slowclap my man…”it’s got no more tech than a Dollar watch” let me repeat that again, just to emphasize “it’s got no more tech than a Dollar watch”

      • SoylentGreen

        Soon, Apple “ice” for Eskimos, just frozen water, except Apple workers in a dodgy factory make it from, Chinese workers sweat and its expensive lol

      • yourmomsbox

        Srsly bro if they feel unjust they should just quit

      • SoylentGreen

        Quit to what? Death?
        dude look it up your too far off the track to educate you here.

      • yourmomsbox

        Quit to do whatever the dude feels like that won’t leads him to jumping off the building, it’s all business transaction buddy, nobody is putting a gun to their heads and says make the iPhone or u dead. And you do know Apple takes care of workers that makes their products by giving them bonus right

      • SoylentGreen

        Well Steve Gibson said that and He coined the term spyware, wrote the first ever tool too remove it, codes in Asm to about 15 architectures, an actual guru,
        so I believe him.

    • CollegiateLad

      I love what it offers…

      • SoylentGreen

        What? A bowl of rice a day.

  • Rupinder

    Thanks for finally giving me a reason to prefer the 38mm over the 42mm, Jeff! My previous thought process was getting the 42mm because “bigger equals better”, but now realizing that I have small wrists, the smaller one will most likely be the better option so that I don’t have a bulge on my arm… only need that in another place (;

    • SoylentGreen

      Well if Jeff’s doing it man, no brainer.
      Oh is that an abattoir? “Sure, but Jeff went in so now I’m convinced I want slaughtered aswell”
      “Ps, Thanks for convincing me to be goulash and chops ☺” eh????

  • Norbi Whitney

    No-one going Edition, sad times.

    • SoylentGreen

      I feel the pain from here, do you?

  • deepdvd

    Aren’t there any at iDB that are not getting an Apple Watch? If you’re being honest, do any of you feel pressured to get one because of your job and/or boss? Or is it your excuse to get new tech? Would you really buy one if you didn’t work for iDB? Have any of you backed the Pebble Time, a 2nd (maybe 3rd?) gen device with a solid base?

    • Kevin Osborne

      ^ Agreed. I’m shocked that EVERYONE on the team is voting YES on the Apple Watch over the Pebble… I’ve already backed the Pebble Time Steel.

      • CollegiateLad

        I think Jeff already owns a pebble.

      • SoylentGreen

        Well Incase you didn’t know, popular blogs get incentives, i see it like a modern ad persons wet dream,glorified commercials are here.
        But I’m ok with that, it’s a two way street.

      • Kevin Osborne

        I would get that except they’re all talking about price and what they can afford, so it seems as if they’re paying out of their own pockets.

    • Gary le

      I mean this is what they get paid to write about man if they dont get one then how are they gonna comment ?

      • SoylentGreen

        exactly gazza 🙂
        Better put than my effort

    • Jake Smith

      Sounds like I am the only team member not getting one.

      It looks like an interesting enough device, but just not something I want to shell out the money for. I guess I could purchase the Apple Watch Sport, but it doesn’t pack the style that makes me want to wear it every day. The Apple Watch with stainless steel band is the version I want, but not at its price point.

      My problem with the Apple Watch is it doesn’t have the luxury, collector watch fee and why I’m not compulsively wanting to buy it. I like and collect watches, thus I’d much rather stick with my TAG Heuer as my every day watch and keep saving my pennies for a Rolex one day.

      • SoylentGreen

        If you guys really ain’t getting to pick at least a cheap ( in Apple terms) one for zero, yous are nuts, you need management, you know much a commercial like a “jeff review” would cost!
        Hundreds of thousands of pounds sterling.
        Approach an agent or some company that hooks bloggers up with the stuff they blog about, your being stung atm.

    • SoylentGreen

      I’m buying zero Apple watches, i actually want one funny enough, but I just can’t ignore the fact that I’m not getting a good watch for my paper but they pebbles are nearly value for money, and I’m too clever to get Peer pressured into making me literally chuck my cash away for veritable rubbish, na, I’ll pass, iPhone/iPad/macs = rocking and worth the cash, if you can swallow the spying and the blatant abuses in Chinese factories of workers, which it’s a thing, proven beyond as doubt, but they make allot of our stuff and as ideal as it sounds to just not buy stuff made by exploited ppl then we would have next to nothing, I get it, but I draw the line at NO value for money, wait till ppl try sell them, allot of mad Apple-ettes in the making ☺

  • 5723alex .

    No one likes the Phone answer function ?

    • Jamessmooth

      I do!

    • Gary le

      U trippin, its convienient isnt it? It might look unusual talking to your watch at first but i think others will eventually get it lol

      • SoylentGreen

        Captain Kirk style is hard to adopt for not so confident souls amongst us, to say the least.

  • Jamessmooth

    Great article guys! Really enjoyed reading everyone’s opinions. I keep going back and forth on whether I want the Stainless Steel or the Sport. I just can’t decide. Spending about $600 on a first gen product, as some of the idb staff has pointed out, it a tough call. I will be getting the space gray or space black versions, and def the black band. I think it will hold up better, not show dirt and grime as much, etc…

    • Gary le

      Space black evertything is sick! But the price is over 1k which in turn makes me sick lol

      • Jamessmooth

        Maaaaaan I just realized in order to get the space black you have to buy the link! Ugh I’m pretty disappointed :/

  • oasismark

    Can i ask the people who want to use the apple watch for exercise and sport, will you be wearing it when you play contact sports like football (soccer)?

    Yes its ok for running and walking, but, football, rugby, hocky? its going to get damaged isn’t it?

    • Valinor

      I wouldnt wear it when playing contact sports. Way to expensive for that.
      To tell you the truth, I was expecting more sensors, but seeing as it only has a heartrate monitor, If you are serious about tracking sports I advice you to buy the adidas micoach system. Cheaper, better and preciser then all smartwatch functions on the market. It can track jumps, directions, position on the field, heartrate.

      • SoylentGreen

        Your cool system sounds way, smarter than a smart watch, don’t be fooled, actually you can’t be, you have the superior product, period. Ppl here must have plenty cash splash, which is good but makes it harder to get a true indicator of the general populations pov.

    • SoylentGreen

      This is going from the sublime to the ridiculous, would you take your iPhone for a game of,’American football? no brainer eh, so same will apply, that’s why you get one dollar watches fron gas stations and there-in lies the “why does this thing exists debate”

      • oasismark

        So whats the point in all the health tracking, the hour your most active your watch is sat not moving, missing out 1 hr of your most active time so you health and data is all messed up.

  • 5723alex .

    Cowen & Co. semiconductor analyst Timothy Arcuri speculation :

    2.0 version of the Watch will make wireless connections to the Internet on its own, without the need to be tethered to the iPhone:

  • R3VVEDUP

    any thoughts on the band that charges the watch, Reserve Strap? the $249 might be worth it if its always being charged.

  • Jimmy Velletta

    I’ll be getting the space gray 42mm Sport Edition. Question: With the Apple Watch app only available on iOS 8.2, does that mean jailbroken phones can’t use the Watch?

    • Valinor

      There will be a jailbreak for 8.2 or 8.3 so dont sweat it.

  • Merman123

    Well it seems most people will be ordering the same one I want. Apple Watch Sport Edition 42mm Space Gray. I’ll definitely be quick to pre order this instead of waiting to see it in store. It seems to be the most sought out model so I want to play it safe before it sells out.

  • john myth

    Jeff is smart

  • George

    I can’t believe Apple made a sport version and it’s not waterproof, what a joke and waste of money.

  • Gary le

    Yep 3rd party SPACE BLACK STAINLESS STEEL band!

    Quality might not be as close to apple and definetely not price lol

  • Anonomous.TECH.man

    IDB sure has a lot of iPhone users.

  • Guest

    Apple Watch, Space Black, 38 mm. My reasoning is that, I really love the looks of it

  • Pocketdoc

    I wonder why the black stainless steel watch only comes with the metal bands, essentially pricing it at $1000 and up. I am hoping that will change on April 10. I am a physican and type a lot and wash my hands constantly, so may need rubber band. Apple reports that leather bands are not water resistant. Bummer.

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    Apple Watch, Space Black, 38 mm. My reason is because I absolutely love the space black. It is sleek and keeps it minimal. Plus, I understand the pricing and I have a few really nice watches that cost $1,000+, so I don’t mind shelling out the money. My current watch is stainless steel, and I just love the weighted feel of it, without it being terribly heavy. And I do want to apply the classic buckle to this Space Black watch, because I have a leather strap band right now and love it. Plus, I think it will look unique as the lugs will be polished stainless steel which, I think, will add a nice contrast to the space black. I’ll preorder and, in case I don’t like it, I’ll change it. It is piece of technology, and I understand the battery is lacking compared to a mechanical wrist watch, but if I ever travel, I’ll have a charger with me anyways. Plus, it is a computer on your wrist, so I was not expecting anything greater than a couple of days. And I don’t think I’ll be using the Watch for 18 hours a day, as Apple advertises the battery life. I do tend to look at my watch a lot, and maybe I’ll interact more, but I can imagine being able to stretch the battery for 3 days if I’m averaging maybe 6 hours of use on the watch a day. Let’s be honest people, if you have time to commit to staring at your wrists, then just pull out your iPhone! But I also understand usage will vary based different lifestyles. Other people may workout with it and find more battery drainage while others may not and see better battery life. We’ll see what happens, though. I’m excited.

  • Max Delsid

    Apple says we get 2 bands in the box. How is that going to work?

      It should be for different wrist sizes of the same color(yes same color but u can sell the extra one on ebay/craigslist).

    Very nice post. I was curious to know what the team was going to get. I’m going sport edition space grey 42mm

    3rd party bands, when fixed to the watch .. It will tell you not supported accessory..Lol

    fluoroelastomer Lol. Apple have re invented the rubber band, because that’s what this silly name actually it’s, a rubber band,
    What was that famous womans name, the one who called a spade a spade during the watch intro last week, it has a neat #rubberband.
    Note to PR dept. Never hire her again wink wink.

    FYI the Apple Sport Watch will only accept the sport bands.

      I was wondering this. I want a leather band and a sport band, so I guess I have to move up to the stainless steel? The stainless will be ok being used as a sports watch?

      • Andre

        I too wanted both the leather and sport band and if I want that it will mean I will have to move up to the stainless steel model which I really don’t want to do. Yes the stainless model will be fine used as a sports watch, it will be a tad bit heavier on your wrist than the sports edition though.
