    Someday one will show up but odds of finding it first are probably not much better than finding one at all. I’m worn out trying to find one.. anyone else looking? Anyone rethinking keeping theirs? So frustrating.
    I’ve heard sometimes a color will come back, does that happen very often?
    If anyone hears of a uv 38mm please let me know lol. Yeah I know there is one on eBay but I can’t go that high on my fixed income.

    Are you hoping for official Apple only? Amazon has ultra violet options by other vendors. I have a few knock-offs and they all hold up well and are seamless.

    Yes I’m holding out for Apple brand. How long have you had your 3rd party and how much use?

    I change the color of my band weekly. I run, workout, lift weights, swim, bike and sweat like a madman and I have not had an issues with any of the alternate brands. My oldest alternate band traces back to the original debut of the apple watch. It still looks brand new.

    Give it some time. Sooner or later a band will surface.

    I have so many third party bands including many sports bands and all
    but one look great...it is a light color band that eventually took on the color of my dark jeans a little. But honestly, my first Apple Watch has a white band it he original band also took on the color of my jeans. I wouldn’t hesitate to get a third party band if you like the color.

    That’s strange, i checked the link, my local apple store says sold out, but i saw 2 in stock at the store when i was there this past weekend. I guess they sold right after I walked out, well anyway, good luck with the search, I’m sure one will pop up. Check macy’s And possibly B&H or even target, you might luck out there

    I clicked on a few other colors & it says the same thing about being sold out. (Rose Red, Blue Cobalt, Mist Blue).

    I'm thinking they might be releasing new colors for spring?

    No retail stores have the Ultra Violet in stock. eBay or MacRumors is going to be about the only places to find one at some point.

    If a Local Apple store has less than 30 units of something its not shown available for in store pickup online.

    The Ultra Violet is worth the $60. but I'm not too sure about the Midnight Blue one.

    Midnight blue is super easy to get. Guess UV is worth whatever people are willing or able to pay. I’m giving up because I can’t afford $60

    This is true. I was looking for the spicy orange iPhone X case and it said not available in the store but when I got there they had them in stock.

    Your never going to find one for the $49. retail or less, it's not going to happen. $60.-$75 is not uncalled for.

    I’m not saying it’s not worth it.. social security budget just limits me not that it matters because I simply can’t find one. :(

    That would probably be up to the store however I've not heard of it being done.
