I like some of these, but I'd absolutely love it if they dropped the price of these things to $29. They're extremely high quality, don't get me wrong. But I'd own so many more of these at that price. Surely they'd still be very profitable even at $20 less.

This is like an Onion article... this is what they are concentrating on? I'm waiting for Apple's line of 'Member's Only' jackets.

This is where Apple’s obsession with margins sometimes goes wrong. I have a lot of watch bands but have friends who only have one or two (if more than one most likely a gift) because no way are they spending $49 for them. Drop to $29 and they would sell way more.

Those striped nylon bands look awesome. I’ll be getting a couple for sure. The loop and nylon bands are so comfortable. You don’t even feel like you’re wearing a watch.

I agree. Even though I can easily afford them, there is a psychological barrier for me at $50. I just can't bring myself to spend half a hundred on a dang watch band. I just won't do it - maybe it has to do with being raised not being able to afford stuff like that. I'd gladly spend $100 bucks to get 3 or 4 bands though, even in one purchase. It feels different.

They wouldn't announce these at next weeks event since it's education focused and NOT a typical spring product event. To be honest they may not even announce any products at next weeks event.

As a business you generally concentrate where the money is - I presume for a small design bill the money generated by (new) bands is amazing.
