But they are not, as you put it "Throwing it in the box"No what I'm saying is the watch will come with the band YOU CHOOSE. Apple's not going to throw the sport band in the box and if you want something different you buy it separately (essentially making you pay for two bands). If someone wants a SS watch with milanese loop that's what they'll order and that's what they'll get. Of course the prices will be different depending on which band you chose but the band will be your choice.
The cost of it (in our scenario) is already covered by the price of the watch.
If you wish to see it this way.
Sports watch = £330
Rubber strap = $19
Luxury strap = $200
The LEAST you can pay is £349, which includes the cost of the watch body AND the strap.
It's not marketed that way, but that's how it is.
You then pay an additional $200 for the luxury strap.
So why should they then take away the rubber strap as that was already included in the price of the watch at $349
You are not being given anything for free.
You ARE paying for both the rubber strap and the luxury strap.
It's just not broken down that way on the price sticker, which is $349 with the rubber strap.
