    So, Apple released a plethora of new straps for Watch yesterday, many have now moved to 3-4 Week Shipping Times.

    So, which Strap's have you bought, or if you haven't bought any, let others know why.

    I'll start, I bought a Royal Blue Sport Band and a Black Nylon Band.

    I bought a yellow sport band and will get it on Thursday. Alas, I'm in love with the yellow modern buckle but couldn't see paying $250.

    It's a shame some of the leather bands are so expensive. I would like two of the modern buckle colours but I'm not shelling out $300

    Scuba Blue nylon strap. Don't really like any of the new Sport Band colours, and although the white and Storm Grey leather loops looks great, can't justify spending that much on a band.

    Only ones I like are the yellow sport band and the white leather loop.

    I want to see the gray leather loop and gray classic buckle in person before getting it for my space black. May be a while but no rush. I think these will be a beautiful combo with the space black.

    I haven't decided yet. I need to see them in person.

    I'll either buy a gold/Royal blue nylon band and the red classic buckle. Or the red modern buckle.

    I will be ordering the 42mm Royal Blue Sports AW in the next month or two, and at some point, i'll probably order the Light Pink sports band and the Black Milanese loop because holy crap that looks so good :D

    I'll also be ordering the PRODUCT Red band and i'll be getting the silver Milanese loop from CEX for my new AWS, my boyfriend will be taking ownership of my current AW because, he's kinda interested in the idea of it, but not that interested in the price lol, so i'm helping him save money, and also, i'll be getting the bigger size and slightly bigger battery, which was what i wanted in the first place.

    I ordered the yellow sports band. I have a lot going on financially, so I'm going to hold off on the black milanese loop for a while.

    No picture but, having had a look at the new straps in the Apple Store earlier, I think that's the one I'm most likely to go for (and/or possibly the Pearl nylon one).

    I ordered the light pink sport band and am seriously lusting after the mint as well. Both look like they should look gorgeous with the rose gold sport.

    Ordered a black nylon band from the online store as local Apple Stores don't have any in stock. Chose carrier delivery, estimated arrival March 31- April 7

    Just received delivery of the pearl nylon and yellow sport - I shall be keeping both. The sport band is a nice rich shade of yellow, almost mustard in lower lighting.

    I'm very impressed with the Nylon. It's really comfortable and looks great with the SS watch. I do wonder how it will hold up to dirt and sweat though.
