Apple today announced the new Apple Watch Series 5 with its Always-On display as the headline feature. At the same time, the company unveiled new Apple Watch finishes and band combinations that allow customers to create a look that's uniquely their own using its new online Apple Watch Studio.

Previously, Apple paired case finishes with select bands, but the company's new Apple Watch Studio lets customers pick a case and band style they like. According to Apple, the new online watch studio offers over 1,000 different watch customizations, due to the added mix of case and band styles now available.

The Series 5 aluminum models are available in silver, gold, and space gray, while the stainless steel models also come in silver, gold and space gray finishes. However, new to the Series 5 are titanium cases, which come in either a natural or space black finish.

The new bands include brighter colors close to lemon and orange, as well as pine green, midnight blue, and aubergine hues. For Apple Watch Nike, there are new colors of the Nike Sport Band and reflective Nike Sport Loop, while Apple Watch Hermès introduces a color block band with Della Cavalleria print, and an all-black version.

New Apple Watch bands are available to order today from Apple's online store and in the Apple Store app, with availability beginning Friday, September 20.

Something I’ve been wanting for years. No need to pay for extra useless bands anymore. I get the band I want from the beginning.

Well, a 'no band' option would be nice too but isn't possible I believe. This is still an improvement though.

It’s on the website. Or in the apple store app. Stainless has sapphire still. Sport model has ion glass. Didn’t look any further. You have the app right. Look at the tech specs.
I looked everywhere on the site... Couldn’t find it under tech specs, or under the compare section either! Thanks for the info!
