Apple Watch Gains New Band Colors in Sport, Sport Loop, Leather, and Stainless Steel

by

Amid the reveal of the Apple Watch Series 4, today Apple refreshed its band lineup with new colors for Fall 2018. There is no major new Apple Watch band style this season, like the introduction of the Sport Loop and Woven Nylon following previous events, but there are quite a few new colors to match the new iPhone cases.

To start, there are three new Sport Band colors: Nectarine, Blue Horizon, and Lavender Gray. These join existing Sport Band colors like Stone, Midnight Blue, Pink Sand, White, Black, and (PRODUCT)Red. Sport Bands run for $49.00 in the United States. There are no new Nike Sport Bands being sold individually.

Both of these are color blocked and match exclusive watch faces found on Apple Watch Series 4 Hermès editions, and cost $489.00.

The other two new bands are the same colors in Single Tour, which runs for $339.00.

I think you order the 40mm size. They didn't make this clear at all, but they're now measuring screen width (which honestly makes a ton more sense anyway). Before, they were measuring screen height, which was a silly thing to use to measure bands.

They’re still measuring height, and (as previously) it’s the case that’s being measured (as is conventional for watches), not the screen itself.
