Apple has launched two new Pride Edition Watch bands to commemorate the 2020 Pride – an annual celebration of the LGBT community that takes place every month of June, in the US & UK. This new edition of Apple watch bands includes a very colourful new Sport Band and a new Nike Sport Band variant.
The Pride Edition Sport Band features a multi-coloured rainbow design across the entire strap. Apple says that the design of this band is “assembled by hand from individual stripes of coloured fluoroelastomer. The strips are then machine die-cut and compression molded together. This process results in subtle variations in the wavy rainbow design, making each band artfully unique.”
The Pride Edition Nike Sport Band on the other hand has a subtle design in line with the theme of Nike Sport Band models. The colour of the band is white and it has rainbow colors located inside the holes of the strap.
Besides the band, Apple will have two new Pride Watch faces which will come with watchOS 6.2.5 update. Also, both Pride bands are available in sizes 40/44mm and can be purchased on Apple’s website.
