Apple Unveils New Colourful, Collaborative Apple Watch Bands for Spring


Apple has revealed a colourful string of new watch bands in time for spring, including the latest installments of collaborations with Nike and Hermès.

A new press release from the Cupertino company reveals that vibrant colors and prints are the focus of Apple’s spring update to its collection of watch bands. Additions include striped versions of Apple’s woven nylon bands, exclusive Nike bands that match its latest running shoes and a new two-tone version of the Apple Watch band from designer Hermès. All of Apple’s new bands will make their way to Apple’s website and authorized retailers later this month.

The new release features updates to old models, including woven nylon bands with a stripe that comes in black, blue, gray or pink. Other new bands are set to include the Sport Band — in “Denim Blue,” “Lemonade,” and “Red Raspberry” — as well as new colors of the Sport Loop and Classic Buckle bands. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Sport Band in Denim Blue, Lemonade and Red Raspberry
  • Woven Nylon in Black Stripe, Blue Stripe, Gray Stripe and Pink Stripe
  • Sport Loop in Flash Light, Hot Pink, Marine Green and Tahoe Blue
  • Classic Buckle in Spring Yellow, Electric Blue and Soft Pink

In addition to these updates, Apple has also revealed the latest joint watch release with Nike. This new capsule will see the Apple Watch Nike+ coming with new 38mm and 42mm “Space Gray” aluminum cases and “Midnight Fog” Nike Sport Loop models. Elsewhere, the Nike Sport Loop band will now be sold separately, and there is set to be a host of new colorways of that model and the Nike Sport band. New Nike Sport Band colors include:

  • Nike Sport in Barely Rose/Pearl Pink, Black/White and Cargo Khaki/Black
  • Nike Sport Loop in Black/Pure Platinum, Bright Crimson/Black, Cargo Khaki, Midnight Fog and Pearl Pink

Similarly, Apple is continuing its watch collaboration with Hermès, with the Parisian label revealing new takes on its Single Tour Rallye and Double Tour bands. Both of the models will come in either “Indigo” or “Blanc” and feature contrasting paint details. These include:

    Great Apple, but shouldn’t you focus on fixing bugs right now? I’m getting iMessages out of order so it looks like people are answering my questions before I ask them. You show bugs in your own commercials. My brand new MacBook pro hung when upgrading to the latest OS and I had to look up how to fix it involving command lines, rebooting and ignoring scary messages saying all my files will lost. It doesn’t “just work” anymore. Focus!

    I don’t think the team who works on watch band colors has anything to do with the software engineers that work on fixing bugs. In good news, you probably heard that the next major release of iOS is going to focus on what you’re asking for rather than tons of new features.

    That’s mostly true, except Tim Cook is effectively on both teams and something’s been distracting him from noticing all the software problems. Sure he’s noticed them now that everyone’s talking about them, but perhaps he needed to focus a little bit more on the fundamentals.
