Apple launches Dazzling Pride Edition Apple Watch bands for 2022

Each year, Apple celebrates Pride Month, which comes just over a week later. This year, there are two Pride Edition bands for the Apple Watch, both now on sale, and the upcoming Shot on iPhone campaign is focused on Pride. Oh, and this year’s Pride Watch face is also available now.

Pride Edition Sports Ring

Ah, the gym ring, the perfect partner for your sporting activities. The material dries quickly, the hook and loop fastening system keeps the belt perfectly tight, and the entire capodl is soft and lightweight.

Now, for the first time, there’s actual writing on the band. A word of pride is woven into the band. It is an effect that is achieved by removing some of the rings. As Apple says: “To create Pride Text, some of these texture loops have been removed, creating a 3D texture that you can see and feel.”

Wondering what script Apple used? It’s what the company calls “a connected style inspired by the original ‘hello’ – introduced on the first Macintosh in 1984.”

If you think that’s the level of detail that Apple has gone to, well, you’re thinking about the wrong company. He explains the colors chosen for the squad like this: “The team designed a color scheme that includes the original rainbow colors with those drawn from different pride flags, including light blue, pink and white, which represent transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals, and black and brown, symbolizing Black and Latino communities. The colors also represent those who live with or have died from HIV/AIDS.”

It’s on sale now for $49 (£49 UK) online and can be picked up at Apple Stores starting Thursday, May 26.

Pride threads watch the face

This requires an Apple Watch Series 4 or later, running watchOS 8.6, the latest version, and an iPhone 6s or later, with iOS 15.5, again, the latest version.

It’s very cool. The time is shown digitally, with a series of threads that get thicker or thinner to show the time. Press it, and the resonance threads are satisfactory. It is very cool and has two versions, dark and light. On Series 5, Series 6, and Series 7, the always-on display is dimmed from light to dark.

Pride Edition Nike Sport Lube

A new sports ring for owners of Nike watches has also arrived. The Nike strap is darker but very colorful, with bright rainbow stripes and dark edges. Here’s Nike’s philosophy for this band: “Alongside Nike’s Be True range, the Sports Circle honors individuals who extend the sport to future generations and inspire others to feel the joy of being authentic. Be True is part of Nike’s broader commitment to the LGBTQ+ community, which focuses on recognition, advocacy and inspiration. And education.” This band also costs $49 and £49 in the UK and is available to buy online now, and in Apple Stores from Thursday, May 26.

There’s also a rainbow-colored replica of Nike Bounce’s face.

Campaign shot on iPhone Pride

Apple’s Shot on iPhone regular campaigns continue with this Pride series, showcasing places of historical significance to the LGBTQ+ movement, such as San Francisco’s Harvey Milk Plaza (pictured above with dancer Baobei).

Pride Watch bands are a regular spot on Apple’s calendar, and this year’s pair are fun and lively, and because they’re sport bands, they’re the most affordable bands Apple sells.
