    When would extra links be available for the black stainless band for those who have larger wrists?:confused:

    For the low, low price of $99 per link.

    But no, I have no idea. It would make sense, but who knows. They're not at this time.

    Would this even be possible, considering the links stagger in size?

    Or would the 'extension' links be the same size?

    P.S. You must have MASSIVE wrists! :p

    The links closest to the hasp are likely the same size. They mention you can add or remove links at a push of a button on the link.

    Just wondering if I will be able to get at the local store or order online

    I asked an Apple representative, and got the usual non-answer answer.

    I suggest you contact Apple and ask for extra links. Ask the rep to make a note of your need. If enough people ask for them, they will offer extra links.

    Apple purposely made the band sizes the way they are.

    Ah yes, you're right. Just found this pic I took at the Apple Store and the links near the clasp are the same size.

    This must be something coming in the future!

    You should not limit yourself from getting the watch because you are over weight!:p

    I am far from overweight, how about you:eek:

    Yep, that is the same for my Rolex. My wrists are 220mm and I have get two extra links. Rolex pays for one and I have to pay for the sencond.

    I do not mind paying Apple, just want them available

    Maybe buy a second watch, take a few links and then sell/gift the second watch to someone with small wrists?

    This reminds me of the in-ear headphones when they were launched. The little rubber tips were easily lost and impossible to get replacements for. Enough of us complained, I guess, and a few months later I went into an Apple Store to complain again and was handed an assorted bag of them gratis.

    Hoping that will not be required. Links might also be availble on eBay as people remove links because their wrists are smaller.

    I'm not too sure of that. That could impact their watch's resell value.
