    Anyone else fearing this already expensive watch is gonna end up costing them a fortune buying extra bands?

    I keep thinking, ooo, fancy that one now, and that one......

    If you buy some Apple stock every time you order a new band, you might feel a little better. :p

    Yes!

    I bought the ss with white sport band intending to buy the soft pink modern buckle when they become available. I already pulled the trigger on a green sport band. Now I'm thinking I would love a red leather and a red sport band if Apple makes them for Project Red. I have a link watch that I adore but don't wear anymore, so I was thinking of buying the link bracelet as well. That's well over $1000 in bands. Crazy.

    If I knew that these bands would be good for the next 4 generations of the Apple Watch I would go ahead and buy them. I think that's a pretty big crap shoot though. I think I need to just stick to one leather and satisfy my itch for versatility with sports bands. My old link always felt very sporty to me, so I likely wouldn't wear it for dress, but I do like that chunky look that I'm not getting with the white sport band.

    Ugh, I want them all. Somebody help me! :D

    LMAO just blurted out with laughter when I read that. Same. Each strap gives the watch such a different look. Surely the straps would fit future generations, bit dumb if they didn't.

    Agree, but dumb for who? Us buying them thinking they will, or Apple for keeping them the same when most (okay, maybe just me :p ) will just buy them again if they don't?

    I have the Classic Band and have the Milanese Loop on order. I also have the link band on order but am not sure I'll keep it. I don't particularly care for the sport band, but if they offer the Classic Band in different colors I could see picking up some more.

    I agree.. Apple are going to make a killing on these bands. I'm really interested to see how some of the Apple Watch bands look with the sport. Also looking forward to some decent third party bands to come out.

    I would like a stainless link band and a sports band. My preference is orange but I'll go with black if orange isn't out when I'm ready to buy. I work outside no I don't need a leather band. Maybe a modern buckle if I decide the link band is too expensive.

    I ordered mine with a Milanese loop so I may purchase a Sport band and I'm done. I did not like the other bands at all.

    Traditional watch manufacturers, who have used the same hard-to-change design for years, are probably kicking themselves for not coming up with a similar mechanism years ago.

    My wrist is 210mm and I didn't think the link band would be me, last night I was at the Apple Store and tried it on and was surprised that it fit and that I really liked itches look and feel of it.

    Original order 42mm Stainelsss Steel black sport band, I have the Milanese Loop on order for June and may now add the link band to my order as well

    Not just bands, but in general. With AppleCare. Docks/stands. Bands. I bought the milanese loop watch and an extra white sport band. Would like a leather one but not sure which one, probably classic. I wish they made the modern buckle in 42mm size.

    Yeah....I have the Milanese, and I have a white sport on order. I also did a Kickstarter for a red leather band since I really wanted that color and there isn't a viable option from Apple. I also really like the modern buckle although $250 for a band is too much for me to swallow, and they aren't even available yet.
