Coming in two sizes, 41mm and 45mm, the Apple Watch Series 8 is compatible with any band in the Apple Watch Studio. Plus, collaborations from Hermès and Nike will elevate your piece from sporty to chic.
Starting with the most luxurious, Apple Watch Hermès has three bands to contribute. The first is the Gourmette Metal ($849), a stainless steel chain with noir leather that wraps twice around the wrist.
If you’re feeling lucky, Hermès also has a Lucky Horse band in the running. It serves as a nod to Hermès’s equestrian roots with the Horse watch face and pairs best with a sleek, thin band. The horse sleeps when the watch is down and wakes up when raised.
For the regular bands, Apple is introducing new shades to the $49 Solo Loop: succulent, sunglow, midnight, storm Blue, and starlight. The stretchy silicone rubber is comfortable on your wrist without the need for buckles or clasps.
Classic Sports Bands ($49) will arrive in elderberry, slate blue, succulent, product (red), starlight, white, and midnight. A pin-and-tuck closure keeps the band secure, while fluoroelastomer provides smooth comfort.
