Apple has made the (PRODUCT)RED Solo Loop & Braided Solo Loop bands available for order via its online store.
Announced alongside Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE, the new bands were made available at the same time as the new wearables. However, the (PRODUCT)RED model was nowhere to be seen, until now.
The Braided Solo Loop in (PRODUCT)RED is priced at $119 CAD, while the Solo Loop is priced at $59. Shipping times for most variants, both for the 40mm and 44mm, are between one to two weeks. However, the Size 1 option for the 40mm Braided Solo Loop is kicked back to six to eight weeks shipping.
The Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop are meant to fit the Apple Watch SE, as well as the Apple Watch Series 4 and newer smartwatch models.
Apple began selling PRODUCT(RED) versions of many of its products more than a decade ago. Since the company started offering PRODUCT(RED) gear, Apple has raised millions of dollars to fight HIV/AIDS in African countries.
However, from now until December 31, Apple small-print notes that the portion of proceeds that normally goes to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS will instead go to the Global Fund’s COVID‑19 Response.
