Has anyone been to a store to see if any of the new bands are in stock?!

I get that message too, I am assuming because the Apple Stores in California are closed (the ones in my area are anyway)
It's the same for the stores in NYC that are open. All the new bands say "currently unavailable." Once they're in stock I'm going to check them out in person.

Shockingly...our store in California reopened. I might go see if they have new bands on Friday. Was thinking that maybe they just don’t to encourage people to run in there for bands.

Right here...
Solo loops are featured in some of these videos:

and they look pretty comfy.

Might have to venture to a store to try out the fit.

Ordered a solo as well as the braided...solo is arriving at my house early next week (a little better than waiting 8 weeks for the braided)

I loved seeing the Solo Loop vs the Braided Solo Loop. My braided solo loop in Atlantic Blue arrives tomorrow!

Does stock normally go up tonight or tomorrow for stores when there's a new product like this?

These new woven bands are sharp looking, but non-adjustable. Gotta get the sizing right. I downloaded/cut out the guide and I'm a size 12, but I want to wait and see them in person before spending $100.

It’s much easier for me to just return the band and order another than to make an appointment and drive over an hour to try to see one in person. But I don’t shop in person for anything these days.

I did the old "wrap a piece of paper around your wrist and measure it" method. I'm always nervous those printed tools will not print properly.

Trying that now though to see if they match...hah (should have done that earlier)

EDIT: Whew...they match!

I'm confused because if I convert from inches to CM, the site says that I don't fit the bands. How can I fit in inches but not in CM? I double checked on Google and I converted right so... is there a bug?

Did you click on the sizing guide and print the measuring strip? There is no conversion there, you just match up to a size And order that

I don’t have a printer so I did it with a ruler. I typed in the inches and it gave me the size. But when I typed in the equivalent cm it said I did not fit the bands.

Which site are you using?

I used a measuring tape...just concerned this isn't all figured out yet, why I'm going to the store monday.

What was your inches measurement? What did you use for centimeters?

My Solo Loop arrived this morning. I love it but it's too big. My wrist measures almost exactly 6 inches so I got the size 6. Returning it, and not sure if I should size down 1 or 2 sizes. Making an appointment to go to my local store (which just reopened but by appointment only) to try on the other sizes.

Other than the size, I love how it feels. No buckle bump is an awesome thing.
