Wednesday, Apple announced a whole new collection of Spring-themed Apple Watch straps.

The Cupertino company says its new Spring 2018 collection includes bands “for every occasion,” ranging from Woven Nylon bands with an updated stripe pattern that alternates white with color for a clean look to exclusive Nike bands color-matched to the latest Nike running shoes to a striking new edge paint color for Apple Watch Hermès bands.

Those latest striped Nylon bands sure look gorgeous. I wish I had a silver watch case (mine is in Space Gray) because I’d be getting a Nylon band for sure.

How about you? Which new band is your favorite, and why?
