    So I'm one of the early adopters that purchased my AW SS and well after this last announcement and having just checked out the Apple Store to realized that they released a SBSS AW for $599.... the same price of the SS! When the AW first released they had the option for the SBSS but only for $1099... Clearly I didn't have that much money... but has anybody thats feeling the same way tried to exchange the watch for the SB?

    I personally would have purchased the SB if they had it available for $599... But they didn't... Has anybody tried bringing this up and tried exchanging it? What was the outcome?

    Unless you're within your 14-day return period, you'd have better luck winning the lottery.

    Yeah, seriously... this "I would have done this if this were available then" argument/expectation thing has gotten out of hand.

    Best option: sell it, get what you can for it, and put that toward the new one.

    Sell it and buy the one that is now available. I don't expect Apple to take a return from a product that was used all summer. Seems like a stretch and taking advantage of their otherwise stellar customer support.

    They will GLADLY exchange it. All you have to do is pay a small fee of $599, and you get to keep your old watch as a bonus! Do note that if you bought Apple Care+ it will still be tied to your old watch and you'll have to buy it for the new one separately.
