    Has anyone seen any Apple Watch clone bands at "brick and motar" stores or Mall kiosks? How about small stores in China town (Canal Street) in Manhattan? It would be helpful to keep track of retail availability and share with forum members.
    Please post location of sightings if any. It would be nice to physically examine the goods before purchase given the wide variety and varying quality of clones available.
    Possibly our eBay trusted sellers also have walk in locations. Does freedomoclock09 (Richard) have a small store in Utica, NY or does Linkoo888 have a physical presence in Dayton, NJ?
    Thanks for any comments.

    Don't know about stores in NY, but Best Buy carries some third party bands like Case-Mate. I have a Case-Mate leather strap and I love it for the brown color. It's pretty expensive, but I price matched it and had rewards points to burn.

    Thanks, yes I know about Best Buy carrying the CaseMate branded bands. I was actually referring to the Chinese clones of the original Apple bands or straps. The Chinese copy of the Leather Loop, Milanese Loop, Sport Bands or the link bracelet. Are these not found at a retail level?

    Likely not. Best bet would be mall kiosk.
