'Navy Blue' and 'Emerald' May Be Heading for Apple's Spring 2024 Accessory Refresh

Images purporting to depict some of the potential color options heading for Apple's 2024 spring accessory refresh have surfaced on the MacRumors forums, providing an early look at what to expect.

The information comes from Apple Watch band collector and MacRumors forums member known as "mikedop," who explained that the pictured Sport Loop units originate from China. mikedop's source referred to the colors as "Navy Blue" and "Emerald," although they noted that these names might not be the official titles. Historically, the exact names of Apple's new color options are often lost in translation prior to their release.

Apple reportedly prototypes around twice as many new color options as it actually releases, so it is not yet known if these ones were approved or not. Apple's annual spring refresh of its accessory colors is likely to launch in early March, perhaps alongside a new iPhone 15 color option.

As an Apple Watch band tracking obsessive, I feel compelled to point out that I am pretty sure Eddy Cue was wearing the “Navy Blue” band in a photo of him that was printed in Golf Digest a few weeks ago (he owns a golf resort, who knew). Here’s an Apple News+ link ('https://apple.news/Ar0axjYQKTvSqcnT9FYHm7g'). I spent a few minutes looking back at old Sport Loop bands to see what model it was and couldn’t match it to any existing band, so assumed he was wearing a pre-release version of a forthcoming band. Seems I was right!

Apple: And presenting our newest color, Emerald! *points to washed-out pastel gray-green watch band*

Typical.

Is that sickly pastel green supposed to be "emerald"?

Its nice of Apple to always introduce a band that will immediately get dirty.

Also, that's not even close to emerald. It looks like coconut water, AKA dirty water.

I really like the Navy Blue one.

Not sure if I hate or love the orange accent color though. ?

They compliment each other; they are on direct opposite sides of the Pantone color wheel.



However, since the blue is Primary, nearly every secondary and tertiary color will work with it.
