Apple today expanded its offering of first-party Apple Watch bands with all-new Spring-themed straps. Featuring a new Striped Woven Nylon band, among the other ones, the new bands are available to order starting today from apple.com and for purchase at select Apple Stores, Apple Authorized Resellers and carriers in late March.

Additionally, Nike Sport bands can now be purchased separately and the beautifully crafted Apple Watch Hermès bands are now available in striking new colors, too.

  • SpideyRules

    Did anyone at Apple actually LOOK at these before approving? These are horrible!

    And put out a new red iPhone but not a red Apple Watch band? Hello missed opportunity!

    • Eric M

      The (PRODUCT) RED watchband has been available for a while now. Just search for it on Apple’s site.

      • SpideyRules

        I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks!

        Why would I delete my comment? What if others could use the same information? Maybe if you’re not a moderator, you should keep your nose out of it. 😉

      • Because you comment on shit you don’t even know about. People like that make forums a horrible place.

      • SpideyRules

        Really? Cuz I think some people would argue that trolls like you are the ones that make forums shitty…Thanks for playing though, Sparky…

      • You consider me asking you to delete your ignorant uninformed bs of a post trolling? Really?

      • SpideyRules

        FYI – ignorant = uninformed, so being so redundant doesn’t get your ridiculous point across any better. BS of a post? I’m so sorry I’m not as up on everything Apple as you seem to be, troll. I have the knowledge now, and I’ll thank you to keep your troll nose out of my business as to how I get my information. Thank you and have a good day sir.
