Apple announces two new Pride Edition bands
Apple today introduces two new Pride Edition bands for the Apple Watch. The company also unveiled a matching dynamic 2021 Pride dial.
The first is a new Pride Edition Braided Solo Loop, which has the familiar Solo Loop design introduced last year but uses a different color for each of the overlapping weaves. It has the original rainbow colors as well as black and brown to symbolize black and Latinx communities as well as those living or living with HIV / AIDS. Meanwhile, light blue, pink and white represent the transsexual and non-binary individuals.

The Pride Edition Braided Solo Loop is available in 12 different lengths, so you can find one that matches your wrists.
To go with this new band, Apple has also introduced a matching new dynamic 2021 Pride dial. It has the same colors as the ribbon, but the patterns are animated every time you lift your wrist or rotate the Digital Crown. An app clip will be available with the Pride Edition Braided Solo Loop so customers can scan it and instantly download the new dial.
The other new band is the Pride Edition Nike Loop. This has the six rainbow colors in a reflective yarn. The reflective yarn is designed to illuminate under light and warn vehicles of the wearer’s presence at a distance.
Pride Edition Nike Sport Loop
The Pride Edition Braided Solo Loop is priced at $ 99, and the Pride Edition Nike Sport Loop is priced at $ 49. They can be ordered from apple.com from today and will be available at Apple Store locations on May 25th. The Pride Edition Nike Sport Loop will also be available at nike.com.
The Pride Edition braided solo loop is compatible with Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 4 or later, while the Pride Edition Nike Sport Loop is compatible with Apple Watch Series 3 or later.
The 2021 Pride dial will soon be available to everyone as a software update.
