    Why do the combi bracelets cost as much as the entire watch?

    I've seen the bracelets on ebay for $170-$180, but then you can buy the entire GW-M5610BC-1JF watch on Amazon for that price. Might as well just get the watch if you want the bracelet.

    Ah, there's another part number. I was looking at this one earlier: PacParts: 91087117425 and it didn't have an ETA, so I thought it may be discontinued.

    because they last as long as the watch.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    Just another reason to ALWAYS check other places..... Only buy eBay as a last resort imho!

    There's no sense, so stop trying to "figure it out" :)

    Just be smart, buy the bracelets for as cheap as possible at the real places to buy them.

    Check out Tiktox.com, based in the UK. Combi bracelet for a 6900 is currently ~$77 not including shipping.

    Like others have said, eBay isn't always the best place to buy things... always spend some time to research prices and vendors before making a purchase.
