Apple Watch Bands Begin Selling Out Ahead of Probable Spring 2019 Refresh

Apple Watch bands have been refreshed on a seasonal basis for the past few years, and it looks like that trend will continue in spring 2019, as many of the current fall 2018 bands are now out of stock on Apple's online store.

Fall 2018 bands now listed as sold out:

  • 40mm and 44mm Sport Bands in Hibiscus, Mellow Yellow, and Pacific Green, plus 40mm in Blue Horizon

  • 40mm and 44mm Nike Sport Bands in Olive Flak/Black and Smokey Mauve/Particle Beige

  • 40mm Sport Loops in Cape Cod Blue and Nectarine

  • 40mm Nike Sport Loop in Smokey Mauve

  • 44mm Leather Loops in Forest Green

  • 40mm Modern Buckles in Cape Cod Blue, Forest Green, and Peony Pink

  • 40mm Hermès Double Tours in Indigo/Craie/Orange and Bordeaux/Rose Extrême/Rose Azalée

Apple could unveil its spring 2019 bands in a press release on March 21, the first day of spring, as it did last year. Apple is also expected to host a March 25 event, but little to no hardware is expected. Either way, we're likely a few weeks away from new bands if another refresh is planned.

Apple likes to brighten up its Apple Watch bands in the spring, although not quite as much as its vibrant summer bands. Spring 2018 colors included Lemonade, Red Raspberry, Denim Blue, Soft Pink, Spring Yellow, and others. Most bands range between $49 and $149 in price, with Hermès bands costing up to $539.

All bands released to date have been compatible with every Apple Watch generation.

why would anyone buy a watch band from apple? Third parties make way cooler bands that work just as well and are a fraction of the cost
Cause the 3rd party ones are complete and total junk

The 3rd party ones are good, but Apple's are on another level for quality. Whether Apple's are worth ten times the cost is subjective.
