I know Apple has no problem putting premium prices on accessories but does anyone have any idea how much they will cost?

No one can have any idea since Apple has not said. It also likely pricing has not been finalized. In all likely hood there will be an enormous price spread. The Sport's fluoroelastomer band (rubber) will probably be in the $25 to $50 range while the 18K/Leather Edition's band could be well over $200.

They'll more than likely be in the same price range as the headphones (earphones/earpods) and also the charging cables. So my guess is roughly in the £25 to £35 range for a single strap which is a lot but... that's Apple.

Seems like everyone is guessing in the $50 range. This is reassuring to me because I was worries that they would be upwards of $100. Hopefully they won't be but you never know.

I would suspect the Sport bands to be around $30. Then the higher end bands probably approaching $100 or more. I would imagine we will have tiers.

Put it this way. I suspect the real entry price for the :apple:Watch will be around $450-500 after you get the band and model you actually want.
