Some confusion on Apple’s part led many customers to expect that the Apple Watch Sport would be arriving with two bands out of the box. And as a result, some enterprising individuals opened websites designed to help with trading your extra band for another one of a different color and size. One site called BandSwapper, will send you a self-addressed envelope for you to send your extra band in. Then you would receive a replacement band in the color and size you requested by return mail from them. It all sounds great.
There’s just one problem. While Apple has said that two bands would be in the box, there are actually three separate band pieces included with the watch. When these pieces are assembled, it forms only one band for the Apple Watch Sport in S/M or M/L which will fit all size wrists. Sure, pieces of the band can still be swapped, but the result would be a multi-colored band that would not look very good for Apple Watch Sport owners. And that explains the confusion.
There are not two complete watch bands in the box. That is the bottom line. So sadly, some entrepreneurs who thought that they could make a buck or two off of Apple will not be able to. BandSwapper was going to charge $6 for each transaction. The site has addressed the issue so far with tweets saying that “speculation is not confirmation,” but that is just desperation. Many reliable sources have already confirmed that only one complete band comes with the Apple Watch Sport. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
