Apple Releases Apple Watch Sport Bands and iPhone Cases in Three New Colors

by

Apple today quietly added three new Apple Watch Sport bands to its online store, introducing three unique colors. The new bands are available in Spicy Orange, Dark Teal, and Flash, a bright shade of yellow.

Flash and Spicy Orange match previously available Sport Loop and Woven Nylon bands. The Flash color is available for the Sport Loop, and Spicy Orange is available for both the Sport Loop and the Woven Nylon.


The Spicy Orange shade is similar to the exclusive orange Apple Watch Sport band Apple offers with its Hermès Apple Watch models, which has never been available on a standalone basis.

The new Apple Watch Sport bands, like all Sport Bands, are available for both the 38 and 42mm Apple Watch models and are priced at $49. Sport Bands fit wrists from 130 to 200mm and come in S&M and M&L sizes with both size options included in the purchase price.

Apple's Silicone Cases for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are also available in three new colors, including Flash and Spicy Orange to match the new Sport Bands and Cosmos Blue, which is similar to the Dark Teal and a color previously available for the iPhone lineup in leather.


The new iPhone cases are priced at $39 for the X, $35 for the 8, and $39 for the 8 Plus. iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases also fit the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Update: Apple has also released the 10.5-inch iPad Pro Leather Smart Cover and the Apple Pencil Case in the same Pink Fuchsia color offered on several other accessories.

They are, but at the same time the $10 bands all over amazon are complete crap. They hold onto oil/sweat residue and start to look disgustingly greasy after just a couple weeks. Where as the Apple bands look brand new a year later just by washing them with water.

Nope. The ones on Amazon are probably by the same company as official Apple ones.’You think once you have a production like cranking out silicone bands the same exact manufacing and supplies would be difficult to come by?

Considering that the Apple bands aren’t made of “silicone” I’d say yes. The Apple bands feel completely different than the knock-offs.
