Is there an option to trade in the band you get with the watch? I believe there was in the past.

No longer offered. The band you received your Apple Watch is not in a retail box, so they can’t make the exchange either way. Other members have tried this through various threads and were denied.

i went to the store and spoke to the manager, he agreed, said there's no exchanges. however, i told him the customer rep on the phone said i could trade it in if i bought directly from apple store or apple.com., so he allowed me to swap. the only caveat was if i swapped bands then i wouldn't be allowed to return the watch. so i decided to keep the stone sports band. i have a small collection of other bands i can use, and who knows, i might grow to like the stone sports band.

The option is there to exchange the band, at least on the U.K. store.
