    Apple today quietly added three new Apple Watch Sport bands to its online store, introducing three unique colors. The new bands are available in Spicy Orange, Dark Teal, and Flash, a bright shade of yellow.

    Flash and Spicy Orange match previously available Sport Loop and Woven Nylon bands. The Flash color is available for the Sport Loop, and Spicy Orange is available for both the Sport Loop and the Woven Nylon.

    The Spicy Orange shade is similar to the exclusive orange Apple Watch Sport band Apple offers with its Hermès Apple Watch models, which has never been available on a standalone basis.

    The new Apple Watch Sport bands, like all Sport Bands, are available for both the 38 and 42mm Apple Watch models and are priced at $49. Sport Bands fit wrists from 130 to 200mm and come in S&M and M&L sizes with both size options included in the purchase price.

    Apple's Silicone Cases for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are also available in three new colors, including Flash and Spicy Orange to match the new Sport Bands and Cosmos Blue, which is similar to the Dark Teal and a color previously available for the iPhone lineup in leather.

    The new iPhone cases are priced at $39 for the X, $35 for the 8, and $39 for the 8 Plus. iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases also fit the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

    Update: Apple has also released the 10.5-inch iPad Pro Leather Smart Cover and the Apple Pencil Case in the same Pink Fuchsia color offered on several other accessories.

    What?! New bands and cases?! Don’t they usually hold a 2 hour event for these?

    I like 'em! Specifically the Dark Teal case/band and the Spicy Orange (although partial on the name) for the Watch.

    Love the look of these. I'll agree that with the exception of the Dark Teal, these feel like summer colours. But I keep forgetting that winter seasons don't always consist of freezing your butts off in all areas.

    More choice is always welcome :)

    I ordered these same colors from 3rd party vendors on Amazon before I even my iPhone arrived. These are fun colors but o would never pay Apple prices for them though.

    They are, but at the same time the $10 bands all over amazon are complete crap. They hold onto oil/sweat residue and start to look disgustingly greasy after just a couple weeks. Where as the Apple bands look brand new a year later just by washing them with water.

    Nope. The ones on Amazon are probably by the same company as official Apple ones.’You think once you have a production like cranking out silicone bands the same exact manufacing and supplies would be difficult to come by?

    Considering that the Apple bands aren’t made of “silicone” I’d say yes. The Apple bands feel completely different than the knock-offs.

    That red dot is genuinely the main reason I’m not getting the LTE version of the Apple Watch.

    Anyway orange one please :) It’s been too long that Apple have ignored that hue. I was even thinking about getting the ‘freebie’ hermes one that they sell with the overpriced leather bands.

    I have the 1st Orange Sport Apple band and it doesn't look new after a year. The color has faded in three areas. Washing it doesn't help. $50 for an Apple Band is like buying an iPod mini. I wonder what really is the price point.

    I think all three will sell very well... Ive just keeps hitting them out of the park :)

    I’m sure the #TriggeredAppleHaters will have a field day with these. They hated the red dot but it turns out it’s brilliant; the watch will bring in an estimated $5 Billion next year, up $2+ Billion year over year!

    The billion dollar dot. Amazing how much cash a world class designer can add directly to the bottom line. No wonder Ive generates so much envy!

    What is the rationale to buy the Apples ones instead of the third party ones?

    It’d be interesting to compare the spicy orange with the Hermès orange once somebody gets hold of one.

    I’m curious to see the color difference. If it’s the exact same shade I’ll be kind of pissed.

    I’m gonna be pretty upset if it’s the same exact color.

    I don’t think you know what that word means.

    Why? You pay for the label, leather band, and faces.
