The new Magnetic Charging Dock was not the only new Apple Watch accessory to hit online stores today.
Apple has also begun selling a Link Bracelet Kit in Space Black for $49 in the Apple Store. Until today, Apple was only selling this kit for Silver Link Bracelets. These Link Bracelet Kits are designed for the 42mm Apple Watch and contain six additional stainless steel links. You can use these kits to replace missing links on your original bracelet or to expand it and accommodate bigger wrists. The original Link Bracelet measures 205mm and adding all six of the links to it expands it to 245mm.
It’s interesting to note that the Link Bracelet Kit in Space Black is priced the same as the Silver option. Getting a whole new Link Bracelet costs $450, whether its in Silver or Space Black. However purchasing an Apple Watch with the Space Black Link Bracelet is $100 more than its Silver counterpart. It looks like Apple forgot to put this premium pricing on its lauded Space Black color when selling additional accessories.
Why this matters: In recent weeks, Apple has added several new accessories, including the Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2 and Magic Keyboard for iMacs, a Smart Keyboard and Pencil for the iPad Pro, and more recently a Magnetic Charging Dock and Link Bracelet Kits for Apple Watch. It seems that all Apple wants for Christmas is not to lose a sale to a third-party vendor because it doesn’t carry that one special Apple accessory on your holiday wish-list.
