Apple has today released two new Pride Watch Bands for Apple Watch. With one of them being available for the first time – Apple Watch Nike Pride Edition Sport Band. Both are available for purchase in Australia from Apple’s online store.
The Pride Edition Sports Band features individual coloured strips of fluoroelastomer, resulting in a wavy rainbow design. But each band is unique because of the way its made and assembled.
Each strip of coloured fluroelastomer is assembled by hand. They are then die-cut by machine and compression-moulded together. This process results in a very subtle variations in the wave of the rainbow design.
Joining the lineup of Pride Sports Bands for the first time is the Nike Pride Edition Sport Band. With its recognisable compression-moulded perforations for breathability. Made from a custom-designed high-performance fluoroelastomer.
Each compression-moulded perforation is coloured, resulting in a rainbow design flowing accross the overall design.
Both Pride Watch Bands are available for purchase from Apple’s online store for a Reccomended Retail Price of A$79 each. And both come in two sizes including 40-mm (works with 38mm) and 44-mm (works with 42mm).
