Expand Apple Watch band assortment in-stores.

It's frustrating to go into the local Best Buy's in my area and every store carries the same sad assortment of tacky "body cases" and other useless accessories for Apple Watch and yet the accessories that would generate more interest and sell more, like Bands are non-existent.  I kid you not the store I frequent has been out of Apple's Watch bands since summer. Moreover, if demand for Bands is that high, it would make more sense to clear out some of the other accessories that aren't selling as well and bring more bands into the store.  Even Best Buy's own branded bands they have like 6 of (really 3 because (3) are for 38mm and (3) are for 42mm) and each of those only has 1 or 2 on the hanging tag.  For Apple to invest as much as they have in bands, something tells me Best Buy is leaving a lot of money on the table here (I mean I recall a whole keynote where Tim Cook spent the first 30 minutes focused on refreshed Watch bands -- just saying).

Would anyone else like to see us carry more Apple Watch bands? Makes sure to vote for an idea if you like it.

PS: before anyone suggests that Apple is preventing or not making enough supply for Best Buy to have inventory, i've been to both Apple stores here and they are overflowing with bands as well as some of the resellers in the area (which I can't list the names or they'll remove my posting) but trust me - they're out there. And if you have resellers in your area and you go check, it'll quickly confirm that this is an issue on Best Buy's end with not purchasing enough (at least in my geography).

Valid points.  Personaly I would never consider spending that kind of money on an extension of my phone and if I did I would probaby not worry about changing bands all the time.


Eventually they will probably require their own data and connection plans.


Perhaps BB is holding off to find out if SmartWatches are a trend or a fad.
