Apple Watch Pride Braided Solo Loop Band

I love Apple’s solo loop bands for the Apple Watch. They provide a minimal yet classy look for the device while still having a good fit around the wrist. Personally, I bought the dark green braided solo loop earlier this year, and it continues to be one of my favorite bands.

A couple of weeks ago, Apple announced their new Pride bands for the year. One is a Nike sport loop band with the basic Pride colors and some reflective material made for runners. The other is a braided solo loop, which features colors from all the colors of LGBTQ+ flags interwoven among each other. That band is the one I just picked up.

I love this band! I fully believe in basic human social and civil rights, so this gives me a way to show I’m an ally in all of this. On the other hand, it also reminds me of the afghans my grandmother made that I grew up with around the house. This band is really stunning. I love the look of it.

One little note about this band: on the packaging of the band, there’s an App Clip that can be used to set the matching watch face to your watch. You simply open the camera app, point it at the App Clip code and an interface will launch allowing you to select the version of the watch face you like. It’s pretty slick.
