    Hi all, I did a search but couldn’t find an answer to this (if someone has better search skills, I’d welcome a link if it’s already been discussed).

    Does anyone know which red sport band best matches the shade of red on the red dot of the crown on the S3 or the red circle on the band of the S4?

    I have Product Red gen 1 and it’s a little brighter. I also had the gen 3 briefly but found that too bright also. From comparison photos, gen 2 (or possibly even Rose Red) might be a better match.

    If anyone has a gen 2 or a Rose Red and could offer advice, I’d be very greateful!

    I have both straps, but the S4 only has that very small circle, so it’s a little hard to see; that being said, Rose Red looks much closer to me. I don’t know if the red dot on the S3 was the same red as the circle on the S4, though.

    Brilliant, thanks for the input. Generally speaking I like the colour of the crown so even if the S4 (or an eventual S5) has had a different shade, I like the idea of having a band the shade of the S3 crown red.

    Thanks again!

    You‘re welcome! It‘s probably going to be difficult to find a Rose Red band, though. They‘re pretty rare. Best of luck for the hunt!

    Thanks, and tell me about it! Had a S3 since near launch and only really just now getting in to the bands. Picked up a couple just after getting the watch but only recently become a little obsessed with them!

    Welcome to the club, mate! It‘s an addictive hobby for sure. You‘ll find most of the collectors mainly hang out in this thread: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/every-apple-watch-band-apple-released-ever.2005810/
    We also help each other out finding rare bands, so you might try your luck and ask around if anyone has a spare.
