Apple Announces New Apple Watch Sport Bands and Gold and Rose Gold Finishes

At today's media event in San Francisco, Apple confirmed two previous rumors by announcing a new line of Apple Watch Sport band colors alongside a new array of metal finishes for the Sport line. Although they were touched on briefly, the new Sport bands were said to be part of a "Fall collection" and will portray softer and darker colors than the bright, neon line of Sport bands Apple put out in the Spring.

Apple updated its storefront shortly after the event ended with the full list of new Sport band colors available to buy for the Apple Watch. They include: Walnut, Stone, Antique, Fog, Turquoise, Midnight Blue, Vintage Rose, Lavender, Orange, and (Product) Red.

These were announced alongside two new finishes in anodized aluminum -- gold and rose gold -- for the Sport version of the Apple Watch that will allow customers the option of a less-expensive gold finish. There's also a brand new Space Black stainless steel Apple Watch with Black Sport band, a Saddle Brown classic buckle band, and a new classic leather band with a two-tone look. The (Product) Red sport band was confirmed earlier today.

All of the new Apple Watch models and band options are available for purchase beginning today from Apple's online storefront.

I honest though the Apple Watch apps (especially the medical stuff) were easily the most revolutionary at the show. The iPhone was the least exciting.

So I got tired flipping back and forth between pictures, so I did this...

It skips orange (because I hate orange - sorry - and needed to get down to 3x3), and it leaves off the light blue, which looks like the original blue, but says "new" on the watch sport lineup (don't know if it's slightly different or the page is incorrect). Also noticed they dropped green. Anyway, all (most) in one place:

P.S. I want a Space Gray Milanese Loop.

And all together everyone said... "WHO CARES!!!!" The apple watch is a failure. Make sure you use the hashtag.. #AppleFail

They sell ~2.2 million watches, fall short of some "expert" demand for 3 million watches and it is a failure. That is like punishing a hitter for batting 0.295 and not hitting 0.300. Love it or hate it, the Apple Watch is here to stay and you will see later generations as you have seen generations of Apple TV.

You missed the point. It is quite easy for someone fail anyone by setting an unreasonable goals. For example ...

Early in my career, I had this near retirement, Ph.D-type of a manager with a lot of business failures in his past. I come in, he gives me this rediculus deadline to make a specific piece of communications software work in a week. I get on-line, find example source code, integrated it in and get it working. Most of the place is over the top that I got this system working. Except for my manager, he in fact looked sad and sulked with news of the goal made. This was the beginning of a "never good enough" for the guy as I kept on producing.

In short, the manager was attempting to set me up for failure constantly trying to "knock me down to size" of his level of failure. I fought back by digging into his personal life, found some really illegal and immoral activity, then notified personnel and he was removed from the company after all the legal ducks were in order. That's how you deal with the man if he doesn't support you.

Dude,

You spend way too much time stalking me. ;) With Series 2 and Watch OS3 the AW is now an iPhone Accessory I can relate too. Until it is Fully Autonomous, it's still an iPhone Accessory. :apple:
