    They may be junk but I just got three third party Apple Watch bands on eBay for under $6 shipped. Seems like it was worth the chance :idk:

    My brother is friends with an Apple employee and was told not to waste money on Apple bands FWIW so maybe they’ll be decent

    The prices on the official Apple bands are criminal.

    Going to get some of the leather loops and a stainless steel link bracelet band if these turn out alright. Can get a leather loop for ~$15 and the link bracelet for ~$20

    I had the sport loop for my 3 and liked it. For the 5 I just ordered I went with the gray sport loop as well.

    However, I usually find myself wearing the regular sport bands.

    Every single time I order an Apple product I immediately start questioning whether I should have waited however many months for the latest model.

    Anyone ever order a product through Apple refurbished? The 2018 iPad Pro is $699 and I’m thinking about going that route. Doesn’t seem like an improved camera that I’ll hardly ever use and slightly better chip is worth dropping an extra $300 for the new model

    weird. I had a similar experience with my 2010 but it would make 3 prolonged "beep" sounds at me. In my case, I believe it was the RAM had popped loose and needed to be popped back in.

    These third-party watch bands from some random eBay seller are nice. They are actually a little longer than what came with the watch so it makes it easier to get on or off.
