Alongside new versions of iOS, watchOS, macOS, iPadOS, and tvOS, Apple today announced the launch of new Apple Watch bands that have been refreshed with summer colors. Apple debuts new band colors with almost all of its events, and today's event was no exception.

There are new Sport Bands available in Cornflower (blue), Dragon Fruit (dark pink), and Canary Yellow. All of the Sport Bands are available in 40/44mm size options and are priced at $49.

My original pride band is now a bit worn, though the one from last year didn't seem as nice, so hoping this one is a good replacement.

For those of you having a weird little freakout over these things existing, your issue is a weird mashup of hating capitalism (because folks buy them and the bands obviously have nice margins for Apple), not being able to understand that not every product is for every person and that's okay, and at the core of it, being just a bit ignorant and/or homophobic because really, nobody else gives a damn.

Know why I wear one, visibility and pride as a thing aside? Not only does it look nice with the SSSB Watch (red lugs etc.), but what a lot of straight cis folks miss is that coming out to people isn't a thing you do once, it's a thing you spend your whole life doing whenever you meet new people, because they'll assume you're straight and/or cis, and eventually you have to correct them and it's awkward. On top of that, gaydar isn't actually a real thing, and statistically the overwhelming majority of guys I'm ever attracted to will turn out to not even be into my gender, let alone me (seriously straight/bi folks, I envy you). So these things basically automatically out me to people, which is useful, and in practice a nice timesaver. Seems appropriate for a watch I think.

Don't fret! I'm grown... Don't like someone elses opinion??, Then a forum might not be your safe place.
It's always the people with the worst opinions who talk like this.

This all makes perfect sense. But then again, a lot of straight people like me like Pride bands, and that may mess with the self-outing rationale.

Finally a Pride band I like. I’m guessing at this point the woven nylon style is done for good for all bands. Good riddance; they were never very comfortable.

I'm straight, and I wear the Pride bands (have the first 2, and just ordered the new Sport Loop) for 2 simple reasons...my kids. My son is transgender, and my daughter is bisexual. Happy Pride Month!
