Can you add any Apple Watch band to any Apple Watch?
Some people believe you can’t, say, add a leather band meant for the mid-range Apple Watch to an Apple Watch Sport model. So I tried this in an Apple Store. I added the 42mm Bright Blue Leather Loop ($149), which belongs to the Apple Watch line-up, to an Apple Watch Sport Space Gray model. It not only worked; it looked good, too. (The Bright Blue Leather Loop is my personal favorite Apple Watch band.)
But there are aesthetic issues. You wouldn’t want to add the Lime-Green-Slurpee Sport band to your $17K gold Apple Watch. That’s just wrong on many levels. And you wouldn’t want to mix your metals.
