Apple Launches (PRODUCT)RED Sport Loop for the Apple Watch

Apple launches (PRODUCT)RED strap for the Apple Watch

Apple recently launched brand new Nike Sport and Sport Loop bands for the Apple Watch, and now the company is back at it again.

Released today, Apple now has a (PRODUCT)RED strap for the Apple Watch, both in the 40mm and 44mm sizes. Apple says the new strap is designed for the Apple Watch Series 4, but that it will work with the previous versions of the company’s smartwatch as well. Here is how Apple describes the new option:

“Soft, breathable, and lightweight, the Sport Loop features a hook-and-loop fastener for quick and easy adjustment. The double-layer nylon weave has dense loops on the skin side that provide soft cushioning while allowing moisture to escape. On the reverse side, the attachment loops are securely anchored for superior durability.”

This is a (PRODUCT)RED partnership, which means that any purchases will see a portion of the proceeds go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.

The band retails for $49.00, for both the 40mm and 44mm sizes. The fastest shipping method will see the strap arrive on Friday, November 16. Selecting the slower, free delivery option will see the new (PRODUCT)RED strap arrive on Monday, November 19. If you choose in-store pickup, it looks like it will be available on November 19.

What do you think of the new (PRODUCT)RED Sport Loop? Will you be picking one up?
