As expected, Apple today has not released a new Apple Watch model but rather announced a handful of new bands for the device. Most notably, Apple has announced a new Space Black version of the Milanese Loop. Apple originally introduced the Milanese Loop when it first launched the Apple Watch last April.

\Apple has unveiled a new line of Nylon bands at its event today. We took a look at a third-party NATO-style Nylon band earlier this year and noted that it was viable alternative for users that want a band that works well in active lifestyles but aren’t interested in the fluoroelastomer Sport band.

Finally, Apple has announced new colors of its Sport band. Apple refreshed the Sport band lineup last September, introducing a wide-range of color options, including red, orange, blue, brown, and gray. Apple also introduced new Apple Watch Sport models last September.

Apple is expected to introduce a second-generation Apple Watch later this year, so the launch of a variety of new bands and accessories catered towards different price groups and users should help keep the lineup fresh for the coming months. Apple has also released watchOS 2.2 with new features for Apple Maps and support for pairing multiple watches to the same iPhone.
