Apple has launched a host of new Apple Watch straps for spring 2022, with new colors and styles to choose from.
The whole band line-up gets refreshed in late March every year, and like clockwork we have a new selection.
First up are new Solo Loop bands ($49/£49), which are the claspless, stretchy liquid silicone rubber Loops that now come in Mineral Green, Eucalyptus and Nectarine.
The Braided Solo Loop ($99/£99) with the interwoven fibres also gets a new pair, with Flamingo and Bright Green added to the family.
The classic silicone sport bands ($49/£49) also get Blue Fog, Bright Green and Lemon Zest.
And bringing up the rear of the mainstream Apple Watch band collection are a pair of new two-tone nylon sport loops ($49/£49), which are Blue Jay/Abyss Blue and Oat Milk/Lemon Zest.
You can see all of these in the picture below.
As usual there’s also a couple of silly money, high fashion bands from Hermès.
There’s a Hermès Jumping Single Tour which uses woven textile in some insanely named colors: BleuLin/Vert Véronèse, Vert Véronèse/Noir and Noir/Gris Clair. That will set you back $319/£319.
And if that’s not enough, $339/£339 will bag you a calfskin leather Hermes band in Blanc, Rouge de Coeur, Gris Meyer and Ébène.
All of these add into Apple’s ever-growing collection of Apple Watch bands.
You can, as always, read our guide to the best third party Apple Watch bands if the cost of the official range is too steep.
