There are already quite a few choices for third-party Apple Watch bands, but the choices should get better soon. Apple has made official Apple Watch lugs available for third parties that comply with Apple's standards. Its distribution partner, Avnet, sells them in quantities of 25 or 200 sets. Each band would need a "set" of two pieces. A set sells for between $9 and $13, so any third-party bands that use the official Apple component are not likely to cost $25 or less.
