    Not sure if this is Nashville specific, but I called the Green Hills location and the manager said he's expecting daily arrivals of bands. So far they've only been receiving the most popular sport and leather bands, but it's nice to know that more arrive each day.

    Nice, I called two local stores in MA and neither have any and don't know when they're going to get them. I have a black sport band on order for delivery next week, but I was hoping to pick one up prior to leaving for camping this weekend... No such luck!

    Thank you. I may have to run down there, but I really hate going to that location on the weekend.

    Which leather bands were they getting? Loops or classic?

    Natick / Solomon pond?

    I have a black 42 sports band on hand.
    My watch is still 5 weeks out. I wouldn't have a problem parting with it.

    Providence had all the color sport bands yesterday. I picked up a blue and green. Might want to call and see if they still have them. Not sure of the drive for you though.

    They had loop, classic, and milanese today. You have to ask them to check the back though; they only have sport bands on the floor. I scooped a ML for my 38mm just now.

    Glad I called first. They said they didn't have any loops or Milanese.

    This may be a little late but I was just at Solomon Pond Mall today and they have sport bands in stock. One of the workers said they were getting daily shipments except for on holidays and weekends.

    Just visited the west jersey stores - short hills mall and willowbrook mall... Only sport bands nothing else. I asked and was denied, maybe if you're a bit prettier than me you'll have better luck!

    I'm gomna try the downtown Manhattan locations tomorrow after work, maybe I'll have more luck. Definitely tired of this black sport band #

    Thanks, those were the two stores I tried. Now that I'm back from my camping trip, I'll just wait for my delivery tomorrow - but thanks for the offer :)

    ----------

    Thanks, good to know. When I called there on Friday they said that they had no idea when they would start having bands. Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow, but if I decide on a different color it's nice to know I can just get one locally.

    I called Green Hills and Cool Springs on Friday and they said they only had sport bands. I'm looking for Milanese...that makes me slightly frustrated that I had all weekend to pick one up but they told me they didn't have any!

    Both Green Hills and Cool Springs have Sport Bands. I remember seeing black, green, blue, and white at Cool Springs. Don't recall any pink.

    I live in Gallatin, so yeah....its almost a better drive to go to the Knoxville store.:confused:

    The Cool Springs store would not go in the back to look at stock, instead they claimed that they had a meeting that morning and discussed the bands that they did have.

    I called Green Hills and the lady I spoke to, asked specifically which bands I was interested in. She put me on hold for about 2 minutes, then came back and said none of the ones I wanted were available.

    I have ordered blue leather loop which is suposed to be delivered between 22 of may to 28 of May and still says processing item. Also White band which have already been dispatched. I will cancel the Leather Loop if it is available in Apple store. So far no Apple Watch bands at all in the Manchester (Arndale) Apple Store.

    I'm heading to both stores tomorrow because work has me heading that way anyways. Hopefully a milanese is in my future!
