i can't find that option on Apple website anymore.
It is there in the U.S.: http://www.apple.com/shop/buy-watch...lack-sport-band?product=MLC82LL/A&step=detail
In Space Black SS instead of standard SS as the bundled option though. They added more models and got rid of some of the older bundled options to keep the collection manageable. However, one can always purchase the black sport band with the standard SS pin separately.
Aah, I did not know they ever offered a polished SS and black sport band SKU. I only noticed it with the black watch body.
It was the cheapest way to get SS Apple Watch ...
Well, there is always the choice of a coral or white band with the polished SS. That does seem kind of sub-optimized.
was that an option in the past? i had to buy mine (in canada) with a white band that was the only offering...
Opps missed SS...!
SS and black seems like the logical discrete choice - clearly apple want you to buy an extra band. Upselling again.
It was. Bestbuy, Target still have that option. It's probably removed when they released a few new colors back in September.
you're right! just checked it is available in bestbuy us and canada!
how the hell did i miss this last month? lol.
It wasn't any cheaper than the SS models with the bundled Sport bands that you can currently buy.
It was definitely an option, That's the one I bought. I went in planning on getting the SS with Classic buckle (back when it was only black) but during the try on appointment loved how comfortable the BSB was and ultimately chose that. I think it's strange that they took it out as it's a very "classic" watch combo that appeals to the more discreet watch wearer. The SS with white band just screams smartwatch.
I'm glad that I got the SS on black SB. I didn't want a black-bodied watch anyway.
Initially, I really lusted over the Space Black SS, but the only way to get it was to opt in for it was to buy it with a Link Bracelet for $1100. Wasn't going to do it so I opted for the same configuration you have. A friend of mine has the Space Black and Link Bracelet and it does look gorgeous but it looks wonky the second you put on one of the neon-colored Sport Bands on it. The regular one seems more versatile in terms of how you can match it with bands. I'm actually glad I got the configuration that I did.
I had the SS with Black sports band, which was replaced due to warranty issues to Black SS with Black sports band and I couldn't be any happier! I now have the combo that I originally wanted but couldn't order. The Black SS looks so good with Black sports band and really stands out with coloured sports band. Very happy with it!
agreed - offering the white sport band, but not black, is just wrong. Personally, I think the white should only be offered on the Watch Sport, but that's just me.
This Ebay seller seems to have an inventory of them and selling them at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Watch...393450?hash=item5d5df67cea:g:3vsAAOSwo6lWGD6y
I'm not affiliated with this seller and have no comment about their trustworthiness... just seen this listing going for a while.
I wouldn't go as far as that, lets not forget that to a lot of people Apple is still just a status thing, so they want the attention that comes with the flaunt. Apple can't ignore a mass market like that, it wouldn't be a good move from a marketing point of view. But launching a watch is as much about that as it is about convincing long time watch wearers that a digital counterpart is still as good, if not better, than the mechanical alternative. And to do this they should offer the "classic" color combinations and finishes that are tried and true. That said they are a company that makes digital products first and foremost, so making an effort to stand out from the crowd and make their product more noticeable in the streets helps them draw in the buyers. It's a slippery marketing slope.
i disagree that it screams smartwatch - although it's the most feminine band in our collection, i think. i put it on the other day to try (my wife is using the lavender on her watch right now, so the white was in the drawer) and i took it straight off again :/ so i don't like the combo either, but for different reasons i suppose.
I really wanted to get the SS with black but only one Best Buy location far away had it. I got the white after looking at pics and find I like it a lot. I don't wear it all the time, because it does really stand out. With a long sleeve shirt, preferably white, it's subtle. I do wear the Midnight Blue sport band with it most, except on weekends I tend to wear the white more. Just depends on what other colors I have on.
I also started out with the 38 SS and BSB but my mom ended up not liking her milanese loop and now I have that plus a turquoise band. Odd that they took it off the menu, I think SS w black sports band is a classic combo.
