No new Ultra colors but it doesn't matter anyway because you can get any color you want for about three bucks on Amazon and they're indistinguishable from the $99 version from Apple. 🤣
I don’t mind the odd cheap band from Amazon / AliExpress now and then. But you can 100% tell the difference in quality and in a lot of cases the style differences. I’d not be too comfortable wearing a fake band on my £850 watch outside, risking it breaking and my watch being dropped.
The “fake” ultra bands might look good in the pictures they use to sell them but in hand, they are nowhere near as nice. The ocean bands do not feel the same and the clip is not adjustable like the real one is. The trail bands, those are very close to matching the real ones but again holding them in hand, they do not feel as nice and the colour tab on the end has very poor stitching and is not on the same level. That’s in my experience anyway and I’m glad it only cost me less than £10 to try all the different ones.
For the non-Ultra ones, the sport loop ones look identical but they absolutely do not feel the same, they are thinner and the quality is nothing like the real deal.
The “best” ones I’ve come across were the nylon loop straps. They feel very similar to the real deal ones and I notice only a few small quality differences to the real ones. They are a bit wider than the real ones I have and have a slight difference in feel, nothing as mental as the sport loop ones. I think with Apple using the better fluoroelastomer silicon where most fakes seem to be using the cheapest version of silicone - which of course is to be expected. For the nylon loops, I picked up all the Olympic ones I wanted from AliExpress and I’m not mad at the quality at all. Got them for £2 each and for that price I think the quality is significant.
