    Long story short; I ended up with a space black steel band even though I cancelled the order.

    It's well made for £30, but as a compliment to my Space Grey Apple Watch Sport it's not ideal.

    For a start; the colour. It doesn't match the Space Grey aluminium Watch, which to me is the obvious target market. It's too dark and very shiney! Secondly, it's very heavy, much heavier than the Watch with sport band. I know some people like the weight of a heavy watch, but I'm too used to the lightness of it now.

    I bought on Amazon via Xmly, and I only noticed today that they send me a gel cover for the Watch too!

    The other seller, icolor, does some interesting colour combinations such as steel/rose and black/rose, which some people might like.

    such a shame the match isn't there as I'm desperate to find a strap like this for my sport

    Yep me too although all of them out there seem to be a copy of a 'traditional' metal watch strap, once someone comes out with an 'Apple Copy' it will sell in droves! :)
