Apple's Watch news: The Sport 38mm's price drops to US$299, many new bands debut

Oscar Raymundo | March 22, 2016
Apple introduced a completely new woven nylon band, plus more colors for its leather and Sport bands.

Apple’s update to the Apple Watch was mostly about style, but a price cut offered a nice bit of substance, too.

During an Apple press event on Monday morning, Tim Cook revealed a line of new Apple Watch band colors, and an all-new band made from woven nylon.

According to Cook, the new colors for the leather and Sport bands are for the one-third of Apple Watch wearers who regularly change up their bands. In addition, Apple Watch wearers will be able to get a Milanese Loop in Space Black, which Cook called “stunning.”

Apple is also cutting the price of the Apple Watch line. The 38mm version of the Apple Watch Sport, formerly $349, will drop to $299 starting Monday.
