Apple Watch Now Available At A Price For $299, Gets New Bands

Apple’s Spring 2016 “Let us loop you in” media event was actually used to announce a number of new bands for the Apple Watch, which incidentally is appraoching its first-year anniversary. Rather than introducing the Apple Watch 2, which was believed, would be the case.

Apple has taken advantage of the captive audience at the Town Hall, Cupertino, to let the world know that those wearing an Apple Watch can now customize it further with a number of new bands being made available for immediate purchase. Sorry for those who looking for the launch of second-generation Apple Watch.

In an effort to support sales of the current Apple Watch without actually introducing new hardware, Tim Cook has introduced a new era of Woven Nylon bands that are specifically offered in multiple vibrant colors.

One of those looking to add a bit of vibrancy to the Apple Watch are now able to purchase the latest nylon bands in Gold/Red, Gold/Royal, Pink, Pearl, Scuba Blue, Royale Blue and Black for just $49 bucks each.

No! There may not be any physical updates to the Apple Watch itself, but it brings at least some new goodies to those Apple Watch fans. In addition to making available a number of new bands that extend the personalization options of the company’s “most powerful product line yet,” Apple has also decided to reduce the cost of the wearable.

Consumers can now purchase the Apple Watch Sport at $50 less than official, with the 38mm casing going for $299 and the larger 42mm variant, for at least $349, respectively. It seems that in the next few months it’s likely to see a price reduction start before the introduction of the second-geneartion Apple Watch later this year.
