    There were no straps in my store (Birmingham, UK) even though I was told they would have during my appointment to try the Apple Watch on. This is a good thing really as I'd like to them to release some more colours, particularly for the Sports bands and the Leather Loops.

     Watch Band - In Store Availability?

    Sorry if this has been covered, but do the  stores have any watch accessories? I understand they aren't selling watches, but curious if they have bands and charging cables.

    Charging cables should be available.

    PLEASE READ before starting a thread - this question has been asked several times!!

    They're only available online. No ETA for when they'll be available in store.

    Not here in Colorado. I asked and was told they expect them before watches, but not for 2-3 weeks at least.

    Only thing the stores have on hand that is watch related are the chargers. I picked up a back up one today and paid for it with my watch :)

    None at the Soho NYC store. I was told that they don't expect to have stock until late June.

    It's driving me up the wall, I have a sportive in just over a week and I don't particularly want to ride it with my Milanese Loop!

    I have a sport strap and a black leather classic on order, Estimated time "May" so I'm still a little hopeful

    I purposely preordered my SS :apple:Watch with a black sport band as I had a feeling additional bands would take some time to ship. I want to use and use the black sport band for everyday use and I have a blue leather loop and Milanese loop on preorder for special or formal occasions. I'm glad I did now as my other bands still haven't shipped and it's no telling when they will.

    What is the hold up on Bands?

    I can understand the delays in manufacturing millions of Apple watch's but what is the hold up on having extra bands/straps available?

    What is the hold up?

    I went to the flagship Apple store on Michigan Ave. today. I asked the guy working the Watches if he knew when they'd start selling bands. His response, "I have no idea."

    Was in the Apple Store this afternoon and no, they don't have bands yet. They know they will at some point in the future but don't know when.

    We've merged about 30 separate threads into this single sticky one so there might be some repetition. :)
