• Hands On: New nylon and milanese bands bring color, style to Apple Watch


    Apple added a few fresh accessories to the Apple Watch lineup at Monday's special event, including a comfortable woven nylon strap design, new leather and Sport Band colors and the previously rumored Space Black Milanese loop.



    Available in seven color combinations, Apple's new nylon bands sport a unique four-layer construction that appears aesthetically similar to the sturdy NATO-style straps popularized by modern diving watches. The two-tone woven patterns add depth to the thick material, while a classic clasp makes for easy wearing and adjustment.

    According to CEO Tim Cook, about one third of all Apple Watch owners regularly swap out bands. To address this demographic, Apple introduced another set of seasonal colors for its fluoroelastomer Sport Band line apricot, royal blue and yellow alongside red and marine blue leather straps fitted with classic buckle hardware. The magnetic modern buckle style gets blue jay and marigold color options, while the popular leather loop is now available in storm gray and white.

    Finally, a Space Black Milanese loop, initially leaked in January, is up for sale.
