Apple Watch owners will soon have more bands to choose from, with a note left for Nike Plus app users hinting that three more exclusive straps are on the way.

Nike revealed that two Nike Sport Loop bands and one Nike Sport band will launch for the smartwatch on 16 November, and will come in smokey mauve, celestial teal and olive flak, respectively.

The trio joins the Black and Summit White options that currently come with the Series 4 version of the Apple Watch Nike+, though this would represent the first time the Nike Sport Loop has been available to pick up separately.

Whether all three will be available to buy on their own or offered with the Apple Watch isn't currently known. Typically, Apple places once-exclusive bands on sale around six months after they're sold with the watches.

What we do know is that they will, in whatever capacity, be on sale only through the Nike Plus Member Shop only. And while that's a little annoying for those not signed up to Nike Plus, membership is free. That is, if you consider giving over your email and putting up with incessant updates.

Whether you already own an Apple Watch or eyeing up an Apple Watch Black Friday deal to pick one up, you can be guaranteed you will not have a shortage of first party and third party bands to mix up the looks that's for sure.
