Totally speculating here, but the fact that they are now separating the band and watch could start to lead to something like what you are suggesting. There was another thread mentioning the same desire. It would be a nightmare for 3rd party vendors, but Apple could exclusively do it. But even they could have inventory problems - what if you want a band that they do not have in stock? You then have to buy another band you do not want? Return it later, once used? I see some issues with your suggestion as well.I honestly wish Apple would start selling the watch by itself with no band as an option with a small reduction in price. I know I am dreaming but its an option I always wished for and with this new packaging it gets my hopes up again.
People have reported success in the past, with the exception that the availability on the swapped band is limited to three choices. Never personally done it.Anyone have experience trying to swap the band color of a new watch in-store?
I’m hoping they’ll allow this now that they’ve separated the watch and band.
I'd definitely be okay with a black sport band! I think black goes much better with SS I think I'll bring the unopened S4 to the store and unseal it in front of them for the swap.People have reported success in the past, with the exception that the availability on the swapped band is limited to three choices.
