Matte and shiny

by Volker Weber


Here is another combination that works really well: Apple Watch Sport with Leather Loop. This is the only band (besides the original sport band) that does not have a shiny connector which would not work with the aluminium body of the Watch Sport. Both the watch and the band are matte which makes for a very elegant combination. At 618 € (449 + 169) it is 250 € less than a Watch with Leather Loop (799 €) and a Sport Band (59 €).

Remember: all Apple Watches have exactly the same features.



But that's why they made a space grey aluminum sport, too ;-)

The Milanese is more than fine with the space grey aluminum. Just got my Milanese Band today and love it!

While the connector is indeed shiny the band itself is much less shiny than it seems on the promotional shots and fits well with the space grey aluminum sport

Am I the only one, who thinks, those armbands are kind of overpriced?

I mean, yeah, watch stuff is expensive, it always is unless you buy a swatch. but this is "just" an apple smart watch.

Unfortunately I only think the most expensive bands look good. So, when ever Apple comes out with a watch, that I think has a pretty design, this is gonna be very expensive for me.

@vowe: how does the rubber feel on the skin? on pictures it doesn't look comfy at all.

No, you are not.

"Hey, don't call me rubber!" - Seriously, the Sport Band is very comfortable. It's not sticky, and it is softer than it appears. The Sport Watch with Sport Band is very nice.

@vowe: Is the 179 € price point right? Store lists it for 169 € - anyway I have to pimp my watch with the bright blue leather loop.

Right you are. Corrected.
