I have the Stainless Steel Apple Watch Series 2 with the midnight blue leather loop (medium). I also have straps from last years Apple Watch Stainless steel.
1) original SS Milanese Loop
2) original SS Link Bracelet
3) brown leather strap bought from amazon

I am now thinking of getting a couple of more straps for my collection.

Do you think a black link bracelet strap will match the silver stainless steel apple watch?
Or may be the Black milanese loop strap.

I don't have to buy the original Apple straps since now good 3rd Party ones are available.

You are just the person I need to talk to. I have my first watch, a Series 2. Do all of the third party bands fit the Series 2 as well? None of them seem to indicate only being compatible with the original.

Yes, so far all 3rd party bands I have bought have fit fine. Even the original straps from last year have fit fine with the series 2 watch.

Just make sure you get the correct band size (38mm or 42mm) for your watch.

The selection of 3rd party bands available is staggering. Just ordered 5 (4 for wife, 1 for me) that will be arriving today well in advance of the watches themselves!

I went and ordered two and now I'm looking at 2 more. Part of what makes this practical is that it is so easy and fast to swap out the bands. I did get a rose gold case so I thought I would have some issues if I wanted rose gold hardware. But so far lots of leather and metal that match nicely. So very pleased with the versatility of the watch.
