The latest release of Apple Watch straps by Coach, had us wondering what else is on offer this S/S 2018 season. We discovered that in the recent months a collection of Apple Watch bands with vibrant colours and unique design had been released. So besides the Coach bands, Apple has previously announced the launch of Woven Nylon bands with a fresh stripe that alternates white with colour for a crisp, clean look, exclusive Nike bands that colour-match with the latest Nike running shoes and a striking new edge paint colour for Apple Watch Hermès bands.
Apple Watch SS18 Is Colours Galore
If the Woven Nylon bands are your thing, then be prepared to take your pick from Denim Blue, Lemonade and Red Raspberry Woven Nylon in Black Stripe, Blue Stripe, Gray Stripe and Pink Stripe Sport Loop in Flash Light, Hot Pink, Marine Green and Tahoe Blue. Bragging a Classic Buckle in Spring Yellow, Electric Blue and Soft Pink, the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + mobile) will include new 38mm and 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Loop models.

The most recent bands on offer are by New York-based design brand Coach.

Available to both men and women, the line of bands includes the Strap with Heart Applique in Dusty Rose, the Strap in Signature Canvas in Khaki, and the Strap in Saddle. Added colour options announced are Strap with Tea Rose in Chambray, the Strap with Prints in Black Floral, and the Strap in Denim.
