Is there a significant difference between the red and orange Sport Bands?

    The colors on the Apple web site seem almost the same. Anyone have both that they could post pictures of? Or seen them both in person? How different are they?

    I've seen them both, and I have the Product Red band. There is a noticeable difference, but IMHO it could be more of a difference. The orange could definitely be brighter and orang-er.

    I'm wondering if it's worth getting both...or are they too similar...

    I have both, but only because I LOVE orange for accessories. The red band and the red silicone iPhone case are a beautiful combo. I'm not in love with the orange silicone iPhone case though as it's creamsicle orange - I'd like it to be brighter orange and a little deeper in color. I fear I'm turning into a girly-man, matching my watch band to my iPhone case. :oops:

    Haha, it does look really nice and I think I'm gonna go for it first, especially since it is a nice Christmas color for this holiday season! I'll check it out in store first to be sure tho, might see the orange and have to have it, I love bright colors...

    Red looks great on the watch, paired with the matching Product Red silicone case! :D
    I'm gettin' my metrosexual on. Anyway, here's a picture of the orange band next to the red. orange_red - 1.jpg

    Thanks for the picture! Looks like big enough of a difference for me to get both.

    Quietly heads off to order matching orange sports band and iPhone case. My wallet is mad at you. :)

    I likely will. Just gotta see which one to get first today. Probably red because it's good for Christmas colors.

    Initially I thought I'd just get one of the two - red or orange. But alas, that was not to be. The Apple wh0re side of me delivered a thorough beatdown to the rational consumer side.

    I returned my orange band, it was too close in color to the red band (and anything i would have worn the orange band with... i can wear apples "pink" band that is actually a salmony color. I liked the product red better (which is really the band i consider a flawed color as it's too orange.)

    actually not so much. i wore the product red with a true red (what some would consider a good christmas red) blouse and the oranginess of the product red annoyed me all day (i was in a hurry in the morning as usual *rolls eyes* and didn't pay that much attention when putting my watch on.... next time i wear that outfit i'll just wear black)
