i just ordered a new 44mm black sport band from apple.com and I was quoted for Oct. 17-24... is it incorrect for me to be a little upset about the wait? I know they have the new watches out now and they have to fulfill those, but they’ve been selling this exact band for almost four years now... they could have stockpiled a bit if they knew they’d keep making them for the S4. I would’ve ordered from somewhere else but I had a gift card for trading in my S0.

I have a black sport band that I rarely use, because I prefer the sport loop when I’m not wearing my Milanese Loop band. I don’t think the sport band was actually every worn (I have a Nike band that sits there too). I’d sell it for 30 including shipping via mail to Continental US.

Maybe send me a PM?
