    I just got my watch yesterday and spent around $30 on a band and I'm sure i'll get more stuff along the way. Some of you that have had the watch for much longer, how much do you think you've spent so far?

    I've spent over $200 on Apple Watch accessories so far. I've purchased a blue leather loop band, a stand, and two cases. I'm still on the fence on whether or not I should splurge and get the stainless steel. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

    I have purchased the following:

    1. White Sports Band $50
    2. Brown Leather Loop Band $150
    3. Nomad Watch Stand $45
    4. Nomad Watch Pod (have not received) $45
    5. Duet Watch/iPhone Stand (have not received) $74
    6. Apple Care $50

    Total: $414 plus tax on items 1 & 2.

    Will most likely cancel the Nomad Pod since at the end of the day I have anywhere between 50% - 60% battery life remaining.

    I have picked up 2 Sport Bands, A Leather Loop and a Twelve South stand so far - about £250 in total (just shy of $400). Had a try on of the Steel Link band yesterday though and am desperately trying to hold off......

    I purchased the Spigen S330 stand off eBay for $20. It's a tad lightweight but it gets the job done.

    $80 on a trio of SS Click adapters and bands. One extra sport band.

    I'm not a huge fan of most of the stands I've seen. I might knock together my own charging stand that will lend itself to WatchOS 2 nightstand mode.

    I've spend way more than I should have. I like pretty much everything I got. My last purchase may be a black leather loop, and the perfect screen protector (when I find it, haven't found it yet).

    About $65 in third party bands. I've made my own charging stand and dual phone/watch charger so was definitely able to save a little money there. I still want the blue leather loop but just don't know if I can justify the price. I will definitely pick up another charging cable soon.

    1. Pink Sport Band
    2. Green Sport Band
    3. Stainless Link Band
    4. 2 x wooden charging stand - one for upstairs, one for downstairs
    5. 2 x charging cable
    6. 3 x stainless band adapters - if only I could find some great bands that actually fit my wrists!
    7. Red leather band. Doesn't fit that great and I had to punch a hole about a 1/2" away from the last hole in the band, so pretty disappointed here. It does reaffirm that red is my favorite color and I am dying for a made for Apple or Apple themselves comes out with a band that will actually fit me.
    8. Blue stingray leather band. This one has yet to arrive, don't hold out a lot of hope it will fit well after the other couple of bands I purchased and didn't list here had to be returned because they were HUGE.

    = $850 + tax and some shipping.

    Yikes! Unfortunately, I'm not yet done. It looks like due to my small wrist size,I will have to order custom bands to get a decent fit. I absolutely MUST have a red band that fits correctly, don't really care what the material is, rubber or leather. I'd really like to have a few unusual leathers (shark, ostrich leg, stingray) as well. I'm guessing I have at least another $400 - $500 of spending in the near future. Apple Watch 2 better use the same bands/adapters/charging cables or my love affair with Apple will officially be over.

    2. Classic buckle £129
    3. Pink sports band £39
    4. Extra charging cable £29
    5. Spigen thin fit case £12
    6. Screen protectors ~£5
