I saw the graph with all the bands Apple has ever made (great by the way). Now I am wondering ( because I cannot seem to find one) if anyone knows which sport band colors Apple has officially retired. Have they published a list somewhere? If you look on Apple.com they only list a few. Do they cycle them? Do they bring certain ones back? Trying to get an idea if I should buy the colors I like before I can't.

I own many of those colors (Aside from the more feminine colors.) Walnut is my favorite. I have yet to order Cocoa.

i've been buying up the older sport bands from CEX - only go for A rated though!

loving the Mint - thought it'd be a bit feminine but it looks really nice. I'm looking to get a cocoa and a fog one soon to join my collection of product red, yellow, midnight blue, bright green and original blue.

I wish i bought the Apricot band before they pulled them from the whole of the earth.....I literally cannot find that band anywhere without having to buy a whole new watch or a 3rd party band :(

I wish I got the Orange color before they discontinued it... now the only way to get an orange sports band (non after market) is to get one of the Hermès editions AW...

Yes, mine just came in today. OEM stone, unopened in box.
@pcall1128 thanks for the reply and reassurance!

I will be buying the orange band. Been looking all around for it.

I am still searching for the royal blue band in a 42mm (mm972am/a). If anyone knows where I can purchase this (OEM), please PM me or reply to this post. Thanks.

Sure thing, although you may have some competition for that royal blue sport band!! I'll let you know if I see anything.

Just to clarify bigbucksnowhammies I ordered the stone band from the eBay seller. The other seller I linked to with the orange band I haven't had any experience with yet.

Thanks. I contacted the ebay seller to verify the authenticity of the bands. The seller did respond promptly and confirmed the bands are authentic. I also asked if the royal blue color was in their inventory; It is not. The seller was unsure if the royal blue color will be in his list of items for sale.

Ok great. Just wanted to make sure you were going to be good.
