Can you buy the Apple Watch online at a third-party retailer and select the band color? I need to pick up a Series 5 gold aluminum with the yellow sport band for a gift, but Apple.com says it won't ship until the end of March.

All I'm finding from third-party online retailers is the Series 5 gold aluminum with the pink band. Can you not select band color at any other retailer?

Does anyone know if there is an online shop or retail store where you can select the band color besides Apple?

As far as I know, only Apple is equipped to let you select the band/color in that way ("Apple Watch Studio"). The other retailers all seem to be offering specific watch/band combinations - the watch and band are sold in a single package, they don't have watches that are packaged without a band.
