Today’s Apple event was all about the iPad Pro and iPhone SE, but the company also snuck in some Apple Watch updates. In addition to a permanent price drop, Apple introduced a handful of new bands, including the colorful woven nylon option, most of which retail for $49.
According to Apple, the nylon bands were designed to be durable yet comfortable, with a “fabric-like feel” in a variety of colors. Considering some bands are as much as $450, the nylon bands look like a steal. They’ll make for a nice setup if you decide to take advantage of the Apple Watch’s new $299 price.
Apple said that Watch users routinely switch out their bands, which is why we’re seeing more options. But this far into the product’s cycle, you have to wonder what took Apple so long in the first place. You can check out these new bands in the gallery above.
