    (I didn't find another thread, admins please feel free to delete this one if I missed it).

    Apple yesterday released a couple of new sport bands for the Apple Watch. Unfortunately, no new sport loop, nylon (only the Pride one) or leather band. They're also available as silicon cases for the iPhone 7, 8 and X. I'm sad they're not available as smart cover for the ipad.

    But they're very pretty (IMO) and summery :

    1. Peach, Marine Green and Sky Blue Sport Bands :

    2. Pride Nylon Band:

    They will be available in my Apple Store on Thursday. I'm planning on getting the peach and/or green ones. I'll post pics!

    Pretty dissapointed no new Classic Buckle like last summer. New Sport Loop colours would’ve been nice too, this ones growing in popularity.

    More clones.

    Marine Green is identical to the Sea Blue Silicone case for the iPhone 7 and Sky Blue is a clone of last summers Mist Blue.

    I will be getting the marine green and matching case.
    In French it's called "Lagon" (= lagoon). Kinda makes you dream of Tahiti. :D

    Interesting observation... this year's Pride band says "Pride 2018" instead of "Woven Nylon" on the inside. Hopefully that means these will be a yearly tradition.

    I really hope they continue this as a yearly tradition. Though, I still need to find the 2017 Pride Band

    I just got the peach and marine green yesterday, and they are beautiful. I think my favorite is the green. They got me to wear sport bands again!

    Got the iPhone cases too :rolleyes:

    The guy in the Apple Store was wearing the pride band, and it's really pretty IRL. I first thought it'd be better in black, but now that I've seen it, I think it looks great like this.

    Really surprised to see there are no videos of these Summer Sport Bands on YouTube yet.

    Because it’s a boring collection of four new bands that’s it. Last summer almost every band type got updated this time around just 3 sport bands with some drab colours..yawn

    Here's my haul from/for Summer 2018. The Marine Green sport band just screams "Miami Vice" (in a good way), and the Pride Nylon is a very pretty summery rainbow. Now where is my Mojito … :D

    MSky blue on stainless steel - it’s a very subtle powder/baby blue and I love it! Now to decide if I should get the beautiful marine green too!

    Marine Green on Space Grey. It’s hard to photograph but I really like how it is in person.

    Seems like Marine Green is the first one that's sold out. Completely sold out in the US, UK and partially in HK. Just ordered mine in Singapore :).

    I have Marine Greene that I'm about to send back to Apple. I have only worn it for maybe an hour, so it is as new. If someone desperately wants to buy it for 59 euros (retail price here), you can send me a PM. Otherwise it goes back. :p

    That was fast!

    Can anybody help me out here , I have grown allergic to Apple sports wristbands so I want to get a Midnigt Fog Nike Sport Loop but in the UK it’s sold out. So after waiting two weeks and it’s still sold i wanted to ask do Apple not restock sold out wristbands?

    It’s uncertain as to whether or not Apple will restock- sometimes they keep certain colors permenant but most are seasonal. Once sold out, it’s gone. You can also try Nike, who sells that model. eBay is a good place for sold out bands so check there as a last option!

    Thank you for the help and I am a idiot as I did not even think of checking with Nike.

    It’s so frustrating as I want to get back to wearing my watch and the straps I like are sold out. Not being able to wear the Sport straps really limits my choices.
