The Apple Watch is the most beloved smartwatch on the market today if one looks at the sheer selling numbers of the device. Apple has decided to not give away too much sales information to keep a leg up on its opponents, but the device is the smartwatch to beat if you're in the market. And yet, despite the millions of buyers who have purchased Apple's wearable, few opt for picking up new Apple Watch bands. The pricing of the bands can prove a turnoff to some who feel that, in purchasing the device, they should be rewarded with a free band or two out of the box.
Well, I can't guarantee that Apple will ever consider giving away a free second Apple Watch band with the Apple Watch 3 this year (though the idea is a good one; Apple, we'd like to see this done), but Apple Watch Sport bands are now on sale through none other than the favorite American retailer Best Buy.
Best Buy has discounted Apple Watch Sport bands to a price below Apple's $49 asking price, such that you can pick up the 42mm Apple Watch Sport White or 38mm Ocean Blue bands for $33.99 each. Ladies can pick up the 42mm Apple Watch Sport Pink band for $36.99. The 38mm Green Watch Sport band can be yours for $36.99, and those who don't mind splurging can pick up the 42mm Woven Nylon Light Pink/Midnight Blue Apple Watch Sport band for $46.99 ($2 below the asking price).
Sure, these $16 deals (at most) don't hold a candle to last year's Memorial Day Apple Watch band deal or the most recent major Best Buy Sale that discounted the Apple Watch 2 by $70 off, and the $2 Woven Nylon Watch Sport band discount is laughable and doesn't merit much attention, but still, a discount is better than no discount at all.
With the Apple Watch 3 headed to market this Fall, I have a feeling that most Apple Watch customers are waiting for the announcement and subsequent launch of the Apple Watch 3 and are likely not in the mood to pick up bands for a first-generation device. If you know someone that is in love with their Watch Sport and isn't in the market to get a new one anytime soon, then this deal may help them pick up a new band to style their favorite smartwatch.
