Apple announces new 2022 Apple Watch Pride bands and watch
Apple is known for standing up for LGBTQIA+ rights, and the company provides Apple Watch Pride bands every year so that members of the community may show their support. At the same time, the corporation contributes to LGBTQIA+ organizations that aim to promote positive diversity change.
Apple defines the new Edition Sport Loop band as follows:
Members and allies of the LGBTQ+ creative community at Apple were inspired to deliver a new expression of pride through this unique design. Utilizing the comfortable, durable, and adjustable Sport Loop design, Apple used a new technique to remove several of the double-layer nylon-woven textile loops on the band to reveal the word “pride” in a cursive style inspired by the original “hello” greeting — displayed on the first Macintosh in 1984 — giving the word a novel, three-dimensional look and feel.
Apple is also offering a new watch face, which is already available, in addition to the new watchband. Apple defines the Pride Threads watch face as follows:
This face brings together colors that represent the LGBTQ community. The threads morph to create the time and respond to the movement of your wrist. You can also tap each thread or rotate the Digital Crown to send a vibration across them.
The Apple Online Store now has Apple announces new 2022 Apple Watch Pride bands and watch Sport Loop watch bands for $49 each. On May 26, the new bands will be available in Apple Retail Stores.
