    Thanks for the link. Perhaps this is a sign that the Apple Watch will see some refreshed bands coming soon for the keynote or it could be Walmart liquidating stock.

    I have always wanted the walnut one with the black watch but I have the link now and have only taken the link off 1 time since launch of S2. Click kind of turned me off of the watch band collecting.

    I don't know if they have them in store. It would probably make more sense to order online for store pickup or delivery to make sure you get what you want without wasting a trip.

    Most of the bands are shipped from online or available for in store pick up when ordering online.

    Nice. Picked up the 42mm navy nylon band as well as a 42mm orange sport band, all for $54 and free shipping. Thanks! Didn't realize they still had the orange 42mm in stock. Hopefully it's not too orange. Still would like a white sport band but may hold off for a bit. Or get one through new egg.

    Looks like Walmart raised the prices of the 42mm nylon bands back to regular price, except the blue one which says there are only 5 left.

    They're definitely official. I don't think Walmart and Newegg sell knockoffs.

    I'm excited to receive my nylon band tomorrow. I remember when they came out I thought they were hideous. Now I'm really into them, I have 2 knockoff ones and I'm stoked to have my first official one.

    The Nylon bands actually surprised me. I initially mocked them when they debuted last March. But after owning the pearl and black nylon, they're surprisingly light weight and durable, and they look really nice paired with the Apple Watch. Any they breathe much easier than the sport bands.

    I'm actually impressed with the quality of my knockoff band! Can't even tell a difference. Glad I didn't pay $50 for an official nylon. But for $27 I'll probably be keeping it.

    Both the Walmart seller and the Newegg seller is 1ShopDirect. Anyone have any experience with this seller?

    Just purchased from their eBay store front. They appear to sell a lot of Apple Watch bands heavily discounted and from their feedback, appear to be legit. I just bought an orange sport band from them yesterday.

    I've ordered 2 sports bands, (product red and fog), through walmart with them and they have been great. The items end up being delivered a day or 2 before the delivery date stated.

    Got my orange. Chose free shipping through Walmart and showed up in two days. Hoping the blue nylon shows up today.

    Boo, the blue nylon is full price. But I got the orange/anthracite that I'd loved since first seeing it after release.

    Just wish I could find one of the older variants of the classic buckle for half price. :(

    IMG_0864.JPG The pricing is kind of strange. 42mm orange nylon is full price, while 38mm is half. blue nylon 38mm was mostly full price, while 42mm (when it was available) was half.

    Got my blue nylon yesterday. Looking forward to getting one of the new Orange and blue nylon bands.

    I received my discounted Apple Watch nylon band from Walmart today. "Toasted Coffee/Caramel". Finally something that looks decent with the gold aluminum.
