    Nike today launched a new series of Sport Bands and Sport Loops for the Apple Watch on its website, introducing three unique colors: Celestial Teal, Olive Flak, and Smokey Mauve.

    The bands are priced at $49 and are available in 40 and 44mm to fit all Apple Watch Series 4 and earlier models. Though sold by Nike and designed for the Nike-branded Apple Watch models, these bands will work with all Apple Watches.

    Nike is requiring customers who wish to purchase one of the new bands to sign up to be NikePlus members, but signing up for the site is free.

    Nike's new Apple Watch bands are limited to the Nike website and are not available for purchase from the Apple online store.

    These three new band color options join the new Sport Loop that Apple introduced earlier this week in a (PRODUCT)RED colorway.

    These colors and pattern remind me of folding lawn chair webbing from decades ago.

    I'm dying for a dark grey sport loop. Not like the Storm Gray (which is tinted blue) or the Dark Olive (which is tinted brown/green).

    I would love true Space Gray that properly matches the aluminum on other Apple Products.

    …at least you'll never have to worry about the color fading?

    I have a friend who's colourblind and a designer. I need to ask him if he's been working with Nike recently...

    I am getting all of these. I sometimes have to walk at night through a sketchy area. With these bands, they will make my Series 4 gold SS so ugly nobody wants to rob me.

    Has anyone ever heard of or seen an ad for a watch band for another normal watch ever in their lifetime?
    Of course not. These Apple Watch band ads or press releases are so absurd.

    What did they make like six of these? The sport bands are already sold out. I hate scalpers. Looking forward to seeing these on the reddit marketplace next week for triple the price.

    That would explain why I love these! I’m colorblind (Orange/brown and green/grey shades). I love the grey band. My wife has the Sport Loops pink band and loves it. Took some getting used to how it feels but now she loves how secure it is.

    Supply and demand. You’d probably price it the same way if you were in business selling these.

    They are still available on the app. Download Nike+, create an account, and search: Apple and it’ll be there. Just ordered mine this morning at 9am
