Apple Watch Site Lets Users Explore Different Band and Casing Combinations

by

Ahead of Apple's upcoming "Spring Forward" event that is expected to see the company unveiling more information about the Apple Watch, a new website has been launched that allows users to explore all of the different casing and band combinations for the device.

Using images taken from Apple's Apple Watch website, MixYourWatch lets users pair each of the six different Apple Watch casings (stainless steel, space gray stainless steel, aluminum, space gray aluminum, gold, and rose gold) with the 16 different bands made of fluoroelastomer, leather, and steel.

Rumors have suggested that Apple plans to allow users to purchase extra bands to wear with their Apple Watch devices, but the band options for the various models will be limited. For example, on Apple's website, the Leather Loop band is only listed as being available for the 42mm Apple Watch, while the Modern Buckle is only available for the 38mm Apple Watch.

Some of the combinations are not particularly attractive, like the space gray aluminum Apple Watch paired the green fluoroelastomer band, and the site gives an excellent overview of how different Apple Watch combinations will look before the device's launch.

Another site, launched yesterday, is also worth checking out. Watch Aware's Apple Watch apps site offers an interactive Apple Watch app experience, giving us a look at what apps will look like on the Apple Watch.

What's wrong with the grey/green combo? I think it looks pretty cool myself.

Some people just don't have an eye for fashion these days. :rolleyes:

Am I the only one that actually cares about how the watch functions more than what it looks like?

No... you're not alone. You should care how the Apple Watch functions. At minimum it's "buy / don't buy"

But knowing that every Apple Watch model works the same... the next step is choosing case material and band.

And this website lets you see all the combinations.

This should be confirmation from many other threads that Apple will be selling different bands separately. I am surprised so many people thought you would only be able to get one band with the watch.


Why would this be any form of confirmation? This is just some random guys website, using pictures from apples. I do believe they will allow it though. The fact that the Gold watch seems to coordinate the knob accent color with the band makes me wonder if you would want to. Also, if you get the black stainless, there is only one band that really matches it. I like the black stainless best, but the normal stainless watch seems to have the most versatility of all.
