    Does anyone know when Apple will be selling the watch bands in their retail stores? I am hoping to be able to at least buy the different bands without having to preorder online.

    I went to a store today, (in LA) & they didn't have any bands. The rep said at some point, but he wasn't sure when.

    Seeing how lots of bands are still showing a long shipping time for many, I think, like with the watches, we won't see them in most stores for awhile.

    You would think they would have a ton of bands. I mean they can't be that hard to manufacturer. Not like making a watch or smart phone.

    Yeah, lol. And they knew when the watch was going to be launched!!

    I did order a sports band that's shipping in May, but I'll check the stores randomly between now & then. Hopefully they arrive soon.

    Agree. This whole launch seems strange in many regards. No reason a band should be delayed 4 weeks or more. Especially the sport bands

    I had a feeling that the bands would not be available in store for us who got theirs on launch day.. I was just hoping that they would so I could start swapping bands now...*sigh*

    No bands @ the nanuet store but I went in today to buy applecare+ for my watch and I felt like a celebrity. Numerous employees came up to me congratulating me on my new purchase. Some even said they were jealous.

    I just went to the Glendale Galleria Apple Store (designated Apple Store 01) and they did not have any bands not the watch chargers. They told me that they aren't expecting any of those until May at the very least.

    I'm with u guys. I have the green sport band, and it would be nice to know that I can replace it once I screw it up! Gives me more freedom to wear it during workouts, without being a little weary. Also, how easy is it to manually swap bands?? I did notice that there was some extra band in the original packaging.

    No bands. The pink sports and Milanese loop I have on order will probably turn up before they are available in store.

    Very easy. I swapped my band from the S/M size to the M/L in the sport watch the minute I opened the box. No problem at all.

    Push the little button holding the band in place and slide it out. Easy.
