24
Found 7th Aug 2017
Currys/PC World seem to be clearing out some of the Apple Watch sport and woven bands, unusual to see the Apple bands reduced at all let alone this much.

Collection only it seems but there is some stock (in London I found Leyton and Tottenham Court Road had stock but varies by colour/size). Sizes and colours below:

Concrete Sport Band
38mm
42mm

Ocean Blue Sport Band
38mm
42mm

Cocoa Sport Band
38mm
42mm

Toasted Coffee & Caramel Woven Nylon Band
38mm
42mm

I get that it's a deal, but it's still a nonsense price for a flipping watch strap, isn't it?
And that's coming from an Apple fanboy, sort of.
Yes they are expensive but anyone who says they are the same as £7 ones off ebay is a liar.

Im no apple fanboy. Have no apple products (No that i use) but its not just a watch strap! Its an apple watch strap! Surely any apple product commands a higher price.
I bust my Pebble strap when I came off my bike. Replacement (indistinguishable from original) £7 off eBay. Apple straps start from that price too. Place to go?

To be fair, all watch straps from the brand that created the watch tend to be stupidly priced. Just look at what some of the premium 'normal' watch brands want for a little bit of leather.

There are loads of good and cheap 3rd party bands for the Apple Watch if you look around.

eg Official Omega bands starting at £125 to £250

42mm Smoke Grey Leather Loop is going for £99 in medium also: currys.co.uk/gbu…tml
This offer has been going for a few weeks now but some good prices

It's just finding a Currys with stock that's the problem
Reserved a toasted coffee one and cocoa sport band. Thanks.
Good deal thanks, will have a search to see if I can find any in stock
Shame they don't have the yellow one, I've wanted that for a while. It's a nice "mustard" yellow but all the third party ones are either bright yellow or pastel yellow.
Thanks OP, just picked up a 38mm Ocean Blue for the other half.

Exactly - one is £7 and the other one is ...
Official apple watch bands may be better quality than the cheaper ones you find on eBay and so on, but at the end of the day all it is, is a simple strap, there's nothing special about it to make it the price Apple recommends and their price is not justified in the least bit, I'll never understand why people pay such excessive amounts of cash for something associated with a brand like Apple.

I'd wager 95% of the price you pay for these official Apple bands is pure profit and people seem fine with that.

It's a good deal not replicated elsewhere-have reserved one in Colliers Wood.£50 down to £20 is a good reduction. I could buy a cheaper non brand but I don't want to. Just like I don't want to buy Rola-Cola Thanks to the original poster.

i bought a non apple replacement strap from amazon and it lasted a matter of weeks. wouldn't recommend a fake one at all.

Yeh my other half did this and the strap material came away from the fastening, smashed the screen on the floor. Not a good idea!
Great price - thanks

You cannot fault their marketing strategy though - globally one of the best. Just saying...
Good find as they are normally £49 from apple even second hand on eBay are only fiver less than 20 heat added

For lads in London make sure u call the store or double check in store. There was only one visible online in Currys Tottenham rd and there were like 12 different colors/sizes so I ended up getting 4x 42mm And site showed only 1 available
So if they're selling these off have they been informed a new shaped Apple Watch is coming?
Have some heat. Good find. Not right colours for me but cracking deal.
Excellent price. I visited my local store and the 42mm black sports band was reduced to £17.97. The black band was not shown as in stock online so it's definitely worth checking the store stock.
Brilliant.
I am suspecting a design change on the next model next month.
