    Stop it. Just stop it.

    Every time someone posts a new thread, or ads a new link to an existing thread, showing a great new band...I click and buy. I don't even need all these bands!

    But I'm weak as pond water.

    I'm the same way. For my 42mm Space Gray Sport I've got the original black sport band, an OEM white sport band, an OEM black leather loop, and a Monowear black link band. I just bought a 3rd party adapter and 2 brown leather bands on Ebay. Plus I've been constantly looking at other bands. What the hell is wrong with me? :mad:

    Might as well face it, you're addicted to bands. (Yes, those were the original lyrics.)

    I used to love listening to your podcast with JNGold lol. I feel your pain. Just bought a classic buckle and already looking at which others I want. This is gonna be an expensive hobby.

    I have a drawer that is felt lined that I put my nice hats, all my other nice watches, and all my bands. I am waiting for click so I have different metal ones and leather ones to add to it, but for now I have a white/blue/black sport. I am addicted as well, Just because I wear it 24/7/365 no matter the activity so I want an option for each. And using my internet courage I will say that lately I got out of my way to match head to toe (minus shoes, that sill to have a billion shoes to me). Anyways babbling morning this is.

    Thanks!! I do miss doing the podcast. Thought about picking it up again, but my chemobrain is just too inconsistent. The words just aren't always there. :(

    Yea, this is definitely going to be an expensive hobby. I can see it now...one dresser drawer already devoted solely to wigs, and now I'll have to give the other over just to watch bands!

    ----------

    I can't wait for Click! I got my first extra band yesterday. (Photo below.) As soon as I swapped out my sport band I thought...uh oh...where am I going to put it.

    I have a great option coming though. We are [finally!] clearing out the library at school, and have no use for the old card catalogs (since everything is computerized now). I'll be bringing one home, and it should be perfect for :apple:Watch bands!

    Stainless with:
    Classic buckle
    Black sport
    Black leather loop (arriving Tuesday)
    Stainless link (arriving Tuesday)

    Yes, I have a problem.

    Edit: Add a Milanese loop to the collection.

    I was at my local Apple Store today to pick up something completely unrelated to the watch and saw their display of bands. Asked the sales associate if they happened to have the ML, mostly expecting him to say "no". He said they did and 10 minutes later I was out the door.

    Interestingly enough, the magnet is way, way stronger than the one I tried on 6 weeks ago when I had a watch try-on session. Back then, I thought the magnet was too weak and even the simple act of putting my hand in my pocket was enough to cause the band to slip. This is much more secure, so I'll give it a try for a little while. Definitely comfortable, that's for sure.

    I haven't found any SG or Black adapters or else I'd be in the same boat.

    I have 3 adapters and 4 bands coming from Click
    I have a band w/adapter coming from Monowear Design
    I have a regular watch band coming from a watch band company

    I actually want to get more. Including a rubber band and more "NATO" style. But with no adapters, I'm not doing it.

    Oooops...damn...I found a great looking leather Kevlar black band with a deployment clasp....I may have to order.

    Someone find me SG/Black band adapters!!

    42 SS. So far I have a WSB, a BSB, and the leather band from USAMS. I plan on a metal band and the leather loop.

    I think I have arrested my addiction with 4 bands that are now in my possession:

    the brown leather Monowear buckle band - excellent in all regards at $80
    the blue apple leather loop - great color
    the apple black sport band

    oops, forgot........ I have a red nylon Monowear on order.....


    now If I can just stay away from the stainless link when it hits the stores....or I may be in trouble when someone makes a black carbon fiber type.....

    Haven't found a black carbon fiber, but found a black Kevlar I really want. But I can't order till I figure size. The Click adapters finally decided on 22mm, but I'm not sure the Monowear Design or a single adapter I ordered.

    I will say...the more I look, the more I'm thinking I'm pretty unimpressed with Apple bands.
