    i knew they had dropped the price down to $449, is the $349 price a realitive new price drop? Wonder if they’re phasing them out since there is no 44mm option.

    I wore the black one everyday the last 2 years. Prob got 1000+ compliments. Bought the silver one from a guy here a few days ago. Worn it three days and received over 20 compliments. I work retail so I see a lot of ppl everyday.

    Best band Ever.

    Apple reduced the prices of the stainless steel link Bands by a $100.00 after the September 12 keynote. Most were not aware of this, as there is a section on their website to ‘Explore previous Apple Watch bands from past seasons’.

    I don't know if this changed recently, but all the stainless bands are part of the current collection.

    If you go to the section that says "Explore bands from previous seasons," there are no stainless options besides Milanese.

    On the mobile application, it has not changed. If you scroll down to the Apple Watch bands, there is a tab for ‘Explore watch bands from previous seasons’, and that is where you will find the link bands, which seemingly most were not aware of.

    Interesting.
    Apple needs to sync their stores across platforms then.

    On the web they list the current stainless bands as:
    https://www.apple.com/shop/watch/bands
    Milanese Loop
    Gold Milanese Loop
    Black Milanese Loop
    Space Black Link Bracelet
    Link Bracelet

    The Milanese are sold in 40mm and 44mm sizes, but the link bands are sold in 38 and 42.

    The stainless bands "from previous seasons" on the web are:
    https://www.apple.com/shop/watch/series-3-bands
    Milanese Loop
    Black Milanese Loop

    In this case, the previous Milanese bands are different product pages from the current bands, and come in 38mm and 42mm. I suspect these are the models that don't open all the way like the newer ones do.
