9to5Mac has been reporting that Apple was planning some cosmetic updates to the Apple Watch, including new Sport bands and a gold aluminum Apple Watch Sport, for some time. A few hours ahead of Apple’s event, an image has appeared on Twitter depicting what appears to be a Product (RED) Apple Watch Sport band. To date, Apple has offered Apple Watch Sport bands in white, black, green, blue and pink.
Although Apple is supportive of the charity, the Apple Watch notably debuted without any Product (RED) affiliation. This appears to be changing today …
Although the image cannot be confirmed, it lines up with 9to5Mac’s reporting that new colors are on the way. Apple has also been giving out red sport bands to some celebrities for months now, including UK rugby player Will Carling. Apple has also shown off a range of Sport band colors to select celebrities at fashion events around the world, including the red variant. It was expected that these would hit retail shelves eventually — it seems like today might be the day.
