    From my email this morning, waiting on a pre-ordered link bracelet:

    10% off is nice (around $10 off, for my order), but still frustrating to have yet another part of this experience be "June". And here's hoping there's a better adapter or band available before then.

    In the same boat myself, and Amazon and some Kickstarter orders already filled. I think I'm going to see if there is a decent set of adapters out there, pick up a band, and move on. Very frustrating to say the least.

    Yeah, huge bummer! I'm hoping these are decent quality. The continuous delays are making me a bit concerned.

    I also have a Monowear band on order and my take on the delay is that they're making sure that the adapters fit and are working as expected. The whole world of Apple Watch adapters is so new that there's the temptation to rush a product to market before it might be ready. I'm disappointed and frustrated but, in the long run, I think it's worth the wait. Of course, I could be all wrong and it shows up late and is still not a quality product. I'm as anxious as anyone here to have alternative bands to wear, but I'm trying to be patient (not the easiest thing).

    I received the Brown band today for my stainless that was part of the original kick starter project. It is outstanding, the adapters fit and match the stainless perfectly and the band is very upscale looking. All for half the price of the classic buckle Apple band. I'll order the silver link later.

    wow 10% discount is a good gesture. I wonder if Apple will also offer 10% off for their even longer delay

    Ironic....I literally ordered the Olive nylon band for my SG Sport just last night. I did it thinking it was of the few full bands (with adapters) that matched the SG available quickly.

    Oh well....I had also ordered Click as a kickstarter (2 adapters and 2 bands). Thanks to meeting goals, I'll get 3 adapters and 4 bands (survey completed today).
