    Came across this option accidentally and like it more than the other colors available. Is it possible to get this color separate from the Watch ? I have the Black SS
    Thanks

    Not yet. It’s only available when you buy the Nike watch. Hopefully, Apple will sell the red/black & black/grey sport loops as stand alone in the future.

    Im hoping they release both Nike Sport loop sooner rather then later. I was originally going to pick up the black sport loop out now but holding out hope they come out soon.

    Currently that appears to be the case, hoping that they release it separately - they released some of the bands from the last gen.

    I really want the pure plantinum loop! That would be dope as FLICK with either watch!

    Here’s a picture of the band from another forum member: Looks way more of a pink than red in person. These Nike shoes show their Crimson color better.

    I would love to get the Nike Crimson band, unfortunately it’s only sold with the Nike watch, hoping eventually it will be sold on its own.

    Glad I went black on black. That Crimson I don’t really see me wearing daily.

    That photo could not be more of a disappointment - I'll save judgement until I see it in person but looks like black it is going to be for me.

    I’m hoping maybe people will want the silver aluminum Nike watch and want to sell the pink Crimson band. Fingers crossed.

    There's always a possibility, or Apple may release it separately in a few months.

    Was looking at getting a new Nike+ for the wife, who wasn't really into the "holey" bands, but didn't mind that white/white one. Of course that combo wasn't available with the Series 3... But rather than one of those or the Crimson Sport Loop that appeared too pinkish for her, she decided to switch to Space Grey instead...

    I'm planning to do the other way around. I have the Nike Space Gray/Black Loop and have a Silver/Crimson Loop on the way. My plan is to keep the Crimson Loop for my Space Gray and sell the Silver Watch w/o band. Unless I really don't like the Crimson color in person. :)

    I personally only wanted the Space Gray aluminum so obviously didn't have the option to get the Crimson loop, otherwise.

    Try the Black/Pure Platinum Nike Sport Loop as well, it's really nice. You could always sell the Silver Nike+ without strap or with pair it with one of the Nike Sport Bands.

    There's always a possibility they could become available later on separately.

    My Series 3 did come with the Black/Platinum Sport Loop. It looks nice but I personally don't like the loop style band all that much. Not sure what it is but I just don't feel it all that comfortable. But I'm wanting the Crimson version since I like the color from the pictures. Form over function, I guess. :)

    And I do have a Black/Volt Series 2 Nike Sport Band that I like a lot and use for my runs.

    I did a quick measurement on kitchen scales in another thread, the Nike Sport Band weighed around 24g, the Sport Loop 8g...

    In isolation the lighter the better, but may end up making the Watch "unbalanced" around your wrist?

    Here are pics of the Crimson Nike band with my Space Gray watch. Pics are white balanced so should be pretty accurate to the actual color.

    I sw this last night at the apple store - I'm not sure I fully believe that the word red should be used...pink yes, red...that's a stretch in my opinion.

    This thread is titled “red” but it’s actually listed as “crimson”. But, yeah, it’s a bit on the pink side so not for everyone.

    It’s really a stretch. I was sure when I first saw it it was a deeper red and not as pink.

    When I saw the band at a store I was disappointed.

    Still nice looking just not my flavor of “red”

    It’s actially bright crimson.
    Kinda like saying light black

    Does the red in the band match the dot?
