    Not unexpected, but I figured we'd be seeing these show up online next week after the event.

    I like some of these, but I'd absolutely love it if they dropped the price of these things to $29. They're extremely high quality, don't get me wrong. But I'd own so many more of these at that price. Surely they'd still be very profitable even at $20 less.

    They wouldn't announce these at next weeks event since it's education focused and NOT a typical spring product event. To be honest they may not even announce any products at next weeks event.

    Those striped nylon bands look awesome. I’ll be getting a couple for sure. The loop and nylon bands are so comfortable. You don’t even feel like you’re wearing a watch.

    Unfortuantely for you, several popular colors completely sell out at current prices.

    This is like an Onion article... this is what they are concentrating on? I'm waiting for Apple's line of 'Member's Only' jackets.

    Why would they announce these at an event when they just announced them on their website this morning? Also what do watch bands have to do with education?

    It was either a press release or time during a keynote.

    I prefer the former.

    This is where Apple’s obsession with margins sometimes goes wrong. I have a lot of watch bands but have friends who only have one or two (if more than one most likely a gift) because no way are they spending $49 for them. Drop to $29 and they would sell way more.

    I’ve been wanting to grab a silver aluminum S3 as I like it better than my Space Grey, and that white nylon band with the green and blue stripes looks nice. I wonder if it will only be available with the watch or separately.

    Edit: the band I’m referring to is on Apple.com in the full press release.

    As a business you generally concentrate where the money is - I presume for a small design bill the money generated by (new) bands is amazing.

    No, it's no more concerning than if they quietly released new iPhone cases.

    Be concerned when Apple takes 30 mins out of an event to unveil these things.

    Damn, I forgot this was coming. Another added expense for the convenience of charging all three Apple devices using only one plug.

    Cue the 'but where's the modular Mac Pro???' comments...

    They look pretty nice, however - I'll probably pick up a stripy Nylon for Spring!

    “We’ve got some great new bands for Spring, we’d love to show you all of them now...”

    An hour later, still no updated Mac mini or MacBook Air.

    When they say new watch models are coming this month I presume they’re just meaning the same models as they sell currently but with a new default band?
