    This is good news that higher quality accessory makers will also be making bands. Speck has also had a coming soon sign on their website but has not disclosed what they will be making.

    Now if they could only make one that looks good.

    Those are apparently so bad they had to hide them in the dark. ;)

    The darkness is to create mystery and appeal:D

    I am just glad there will be more accessory makers.

    I'm on the fence. If some of the leather case manufacturers jump in (Vaja, Piel Frama, etc) that could be interesting.

    If what I'm seeking as I squint into the darkness is indicative of Incipio's best offerings... They need to step it up.

    Literally every accessory company is going to get into the watch band game. In the near future you're going to walk into a store and see a huge wall of 3rd party bands in the electronics section just as there is for phone cases today. It will be a massive market.

    I wouldn't get too caught up on the initial offerings. There is much more to come. You'll have plenty to choose from across a wide variety of styles and prices.

    That bottom left band is going to sell well. Why? Because it's based off of James Bond's nylon band worn with his Rolex. Nine stripes, olive, navy, and burgundy in a classic buckle style. It seems they add a couple metal pieces for some reason, but, it's the right pattern and material style.

    It amuses me to no end how certain people are about style preferences and choices, here of all places, on a forum full of computer geeks obsessing over Apple products.

    Try to keep an open mind and you'll fare better. Apple Watch is a luxury fashion accessory with tech in it, not the other way around.

    Hmm, not my style personally, but it's good to see more options being worked on.

    Terrible...Absolutely terrible. Whoever approved this design needs to be fired immediately!

    I like this and hopefully the 3rd party ones look just as good as Apple's own bands. I'm gonna go with the sport, and would probably swap out the bands for third parties.

    I'm gonna be on the look out for a really good third party band that will compliment the space grey sport watch!

    It is a nato band but with an opening for the sensor....
    Probably a leather one or a crocodile one will look beautiful....
    Or maybe some sort of technical fabric with the sport one: watch bands is a great business... Makers doesn't let this money for others: we will see a bunch of bands in the next months
    The worst part in this band is the band holder: is not in line with the design of the case
    A design similar to the part of the Milanese loop is way more appealing than this one, but we will see

    I usually like nato bands but on the watch it looks kinda bad. I'll stick to leather and sport rubber.

    I don't mind the style so much. The colors are a different story.

    Ohhh, a NATO band! Very interesting. I don't know if I like it on a Tank style watch though.

    Love your Pam!!! Not too many around.

    It appears that there's an especially intimate connection between Apple and Incipio.

    Let me re-phrase what I thought was implied....It's an absolutely horrible band design for the APPLE WATCH. :rolleyes:.
