  • So the sport is aluminum finished? Also can i get the stainless steel smoked finish band so i can switch from sporty color band into a classy smoked stainless stell band?
  • I'm really curious to see if the leather straps will be compatible with the sport edition. Wouldn't want to wear a sport band all the time. Sent from the iMore App
  • Prices for bands are up on the Apple Store too Sent from the iMore App
  • In Canada this edition costs around $450 Sent from the iMore App
  • In Canada it costs around $450 says the Apple Store website Sent from the iMore App
  • The difference is more than the current exchange rate!
  • Nah, still can't pull the trigger at $349.99
  • Looks like a child's toy. I'll pass. Come on google, bring android wear support to IOS...
  • I was quite interested in moto 360 until I saw one a a blokes wrist the other day. The way the strap connects to the watch looks ridiculous. A watch strap should not look like the watch is balancing on the top of it. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • My Apple-fan buddies and I were watching the streamed event and when they showed pricing you could see the disappointment plain as day. The watch band combos that they were most looking forward to are prices upwards of 600-900 dollars. One may still pull the trigger on a rubber banded version to save on the cost but the others just shrugged "oh well" and dropped the purchase from their to-do lists. I felt kinda sad for them...
  • This 'Reserve Strap' looks like a good alternative ..
  • Is it waterproof or sweat proof? Does it have a water rating? Instead of sport watch it should be called an activity tracker.
  • Doesn't even have GPS. Deal-breaker. At at that price? No thanks. I rather get a Garmin Forerunner 220.
  • Agreed. Surprised Cook, who is a cyclist, doesn't get that.
  • Can it be that the sport edition doesn't have a sapphire display??? Sent from the iMore App
  • Yep, no sapphire
  • Unless this packs at least 8 gb of storage and such I'm out. Sent from the iMore App
