Media Event Recap: Apple Watch Bands

Apple showed only a little love to the Apple Watch today, announcing a few new bands. First, they showed off some new colors to their already existing lines. Those include Red and Marine Blue Classic Buckles, Marigold and Blue Jay Modern Buckles, White and Storm Gray Leather Loops, Space Black Milanese Loop, and Yellow, Apricot, and Royal Blue Sport Bands. However, Apple also announced a whole new line of bands. They’re called Woven Nylon and mix several colors into one band. They’re made of nylon and look fairly different than some of Apple’s other options. We can’t say for sure if we really like these, but it might go good with different outdoors activities. The Woven Nylon bands will cost $49.

Finally, Apple also dropped the starting price of the Apple Watch to just $299. That’s for the 38mm Sport model. This brings the price of all of the other Sport models down $50 as well. However, these savings do not translate over to the stainless steel models. Only the Sport line.
