    That’s probably why they’re on sale. NOBODY wants them!

    Yep! I tried buying this band when it first came out but my local store didn’t have it in stock and then I just kinda gave up on it. Glad I can get it for half off now.

    I am kind of torn.
    Knowing the series 5 is coming out soon with absolutely no info on its dimensions.
    At the same time, the nectarine looks really good.

    As a friendly reminder.
    Best Buy will price match.

    In case if they have it in stock while it is not immediately available at WalMart.

    This has been in the Apple Watch Accessories forum here for a couple days (started in one of the other threads then got it's own post last night, IIRC. I wonder if MR heard about it from there or elsewhere.

    Classic confirmation bias. Facts that support one conclusion used to support an opposite conclusion.

    So have the band sizes changed? Doesn't this also fit the 42mm earlier-generation watches?

    No, they're still the same size. I'm currently wearing the "44mm" Blue Horizon one, received a couple days ago from this same offer, on my 42mm "Series 0"

    Or you could get the non Apple version on Amazon that is pretty much indistinguishable from Apples for $9.99 with free two day shipping. I have several of these and cant tell a difference between them and Apples official (overpriced) band.

    INTENY Sport Band Compatible with Apple Watch 42mm 44mm, Nylon Sport Loop, Strap Replacement for iWatch Series 4, Series 3, Series 2, Series 1 (Black Nike, Storm Gray, Redblack, 42mm 44mm) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TLB6MMG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_3nlkDbEP0Q3KX

    Mmmm I bought loop sports watchbands from that Amazon vendor, and the difference between Amazon and original Apple watchbands are pretty visible, brighter colors and softer material.

    The same goes with Sports Watchbands big quality difference. Don't get me wrong even $25 is a lot for a watchband hahaha but the sale is Ok, the Apple Watchband at least you have a warranty year if something goes wrong ;)

    $25 is ok for the Nylon bands, I don't think they are worth $49 by a long shot. The fluoroelastomer bands on the other hand are definitely worth it.

    It looks like what colors they did have available are no longer available. I already have Indigio, so that won't work. Good heads up though, MR.
