I know it wasn't everyone's thing, but I kinda dug the Celestial Teal and Black Sport Band introduced just last week. I had it in my cart, waiting to purchase it until I actually purchased my S4. Today, I got a note that it had been removed from my cart since it was now unavailable. Three of the other new variations are also marked Sold Out. Maybe I'm just expected to know this happens, but I'm a little disappointed that there wasn't some tip-off (by Nike or even MacRumors) that these were only going to be available for a limited time (one weekend!). Anyway, if you didn't know, now you know.

I really like the olive flak. I picked up the sport loop, but the rubber one was sold out. I also hope they come back in stock

It was reported on MR's front page as noted above and a few other sources I happened to see. I don't know that they're going to be LE bands, I just think they sold out very quickly. I was on the fence about Celestial Teal Band but did manage to order a Loop. It should be here within a couple of days.

Bands come and go so if you see something you like, buy it or it can be gone the next day.

Sometimes they restock, but other times they have a limited number to sell and that is it.

I constantly check the leather loop collection for possibly colors i like.

Here's are a few shots of the Celestial Teal sport band. Last one I tried to capture the reflective nature of the yarn.

I have the Celstial teal sport band and mauve sport loop both 44mm. About to put both up on eBay for 110$ each if anyone is interested without eBay fees.

So are those colored sport loops reflective like the black and white ones?

If anyone in the thread missed the news, these are now generally available from Apple! I'd managed to score a Celestial Teal Sport Loop from the Santa Monica Nike store and love it.

(Also, my apologies for not posting this in the accessories forum where it belongs.)
[doublepost=1543622848][/doublepost]Also, something I'd wondered about before I got my S4 yesterday, but hadn't seen spelled out specifically, is that the Nike+ models' faces come in matching (or at least complimentary) colors.

Can you post a pic of the band preferably while on your wrist? Just curious what it looks like. I’m going to be picking one up when I get my watch.

Because you demanded it! My preemptive apologies for arm hair/skin tone/etc. The band matches the Celestial Teal Nike+ faces pretty well in outdoor light; with indoor lighting, the band looks quite a bit darker (yes, that's the same face color).

Hey guys, where is the best place to sell my Celestial teal sport band? Bought it and decided not to keep it. eBay always concerns me. Is there a marketplace here? Thanks!
