Apple Watch PRODUCT(RED) Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop Bands Now Available

When Apple announced Apple Watch Series 6 in September, it also introduced new Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop bands in various colors, but the availability of PRODUCT(RED) variants of both bands was delayed until October.

Stock has now arrived, however, and Apple's PRODUCT(RED) Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop for Apple Watch can be ordered today from Apple's online store for $49 and $99, respectively, with shipping times for most sizes currently at 1-2 weeks.

The Solo Loop and Braided Solo Loop are optimized for Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 4 or newer. Sizes one through nine work with 40mm cases, and sizes four through 12 work with 44mm cases.

Apple donates a portion of proceeds from every (PRODUCT)RED product that it sells to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, with Apple selling a wide range of (PRODUCT)RED products ranging from iPhone and iPad cases to Beats headphones and speakers. Through December 31, Apple is partnering with (RED) to redirect 100% of eligible proceeds from (PRODUCT)RED purchases to the Global Fund's COVID‑19 Response to help support health systems most threatened by the outbreak.

Can't justify paying $100 for a band that costs the same as the leather link.
Nevermind the leather link, I’m having a tough time comparing its value to the $99 HomePod mini.

I always find it funny how people berate Apple over their band prices. Sure you are paying a small premium, but they are leagues better from a fit & finish perspective. If you genuinely think that your Amazon pack of ten for $5 is “just as good” than I have a bridge to sell you. Every AppleWatch band I have from Apple is just as good as day one and fit like a glove. I did try the Amazon route once and thought, silicone is silicone, paid around 20 bucks for it. I went to take it off and the lug snapped off and I dropped my watch and had to use my AppleCare to get a replacement. I feel like its the same people who will buy a 1200 iPhone and get a $3 brick from Sunoco.
