Nike Hyper Grape loop or the Nike Black loop... cant decide... I do have a feeling that the Hyper Grape one is going to be one of the ones that sells for a TON in a few months.

The black loop was the one that has already been shipping with the Nike+ watch, so likely a fair number of them already out there. Maybe not going to be worth as much as a result?

I’m thinking Hyper Grape will be the one that sells for a lot. The black I think will hold its value decently, but like you said it’s been in the wild for a bit already.

Black is a nice looking band, but is fairly common and probably will be a staple. I doubt it will be a season rotation, because nothing about black says "spring," so I am guessing it will here to stay.

All girly colours
No such thing as girly colors or ... boyly colors, other than in your head. Wear what you want. If you're afraid that wearing something pastel would somehow degrade your masculinity, that's your problem, not a problem with the Watch bands.
hurry up and get them before they sell out

The link you posted is specifically for military and veterans, and, distressingly, seems to set a cookie that causes subsequent visits to Apple's store to try to redirect into the military/veterans-only section. Here's a cleaned-up version of the same link, that doesn't coerce one into the military/veterans section: 40mm Summit White Nike Sport Loop - Apple.

I have to see them in person to pick. Was in the Tampa Apple store last week and what they were calling Hybiscus, didn’t look like the online color at all (not that you could buy it anyway). Then this week the new colors come out. Drove back up, 28 miles/1/2 hr, only to find they aren’t in the store yet and they don’t expect them until next Friday at earliest. This may be the norm, but I’m new at this! I’d like to see hyper grape and Papaya. Not sure about sport loop...so far only have sport bands, and really not sure about Papaya color. My ipad makes it look like a creamsicle..!

Don’t you have free 14-day returns?

Just me maybe, but I really hate having to return things. The upside of that is that it cuts down on online shopping! I like to see/try on first, buy if it’s really great...or not.

This. I'm 10 minutes away from two Apple stores, but if I'm looking for something that's just released, or known to be in limited supply, I'll look it up on the Apple website or in the Apple Store app, to see if it's listed as being available to pick up in-store today.

Did that today with the Black/Hyper Grape Nike Sport Band, and the app said it was available for pick-up today. Stopped by the store and they said, "oh, yeah, I think we'll have those out tomorrow"; when I pointed out that the app said I could order it for pickup today, they sent someone to get one from the back - they may have had to open a shipping box to get it, but it worked. Later this week, I'll stop by to see the other new colors, when they get everything out on display.
