So I'm gonna buy another Sport Band at the Apple Store soon, but I'm deciding between midnight blue, orange, and product red. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows if you can actually try on the different bands in the store, to see the colors actually in person on your wrist; or at least see the band in real life before you buy?

You can try them on if they have demos in the colors you want. If not, they won't open up a package for you to try on.

Ok so since they have the product red available on a SS model, and the orange on a Sport model, I should be able to try those colors on. As far as midnight blue that doesn't need to really be seen in person as much as the red and orange, as they are pretty similar and I want to judge the colors in person before I buy one or the other. Thanks!

When I went in last week, they had two blue leather 'pads' with lots (if not all) of the new Sport band colours on placed on the Apple Watch try-on tables. All were 42mm M/L. One had the more vibrant colours: red, orange, blue, green etc; one the more subdued colours: lavender, turquoise, walnut etc. I swapped a couple onto my watch without an employee, though I'm sure one was keeping an eye on what I was doing.

Few of the new colours really struck me - orange is nice, but I already bought a (Product) Red band which is similar. Midnight Blue also looks great and I've ordered a clone which should arrive soon.

Sounds cool, hopefully they'll have that in my store!
