Pride month begins on June 1, but it’s never too early to start supporting LGBTQ+ communities. Ahead of the official start to Pride Month, Apple released two new vibrant Pride Edition bands and some eye-catching Apple Watch faces to match. With a series of options to choose from, you can bring pride everywhere you go with the Pride Apple Watch bands for 2022.

Apple announced the new Pride Edition collection for 2022 on May 24, and they became available in stores and online on May 26. According to Apple, the new bands and faces were “designed by members and allies of the LGBTQ+ creative community at Apple.” The reimagined collection takes the classic rainbow Pride flag to the next level, and you don’t even have to sacrifice style for comfort.

The first of the two bands, called the Pride Edition Sport Loop, takes the comfortable, durable, and adjustable design of the Sport Loop band and details it with rainbow stripes and the word “Pride” written in cursive, a la the iconic “Hello” greeting that welcomes you to your new device. The cursive design was created by removing several of the double-layer nylon-woven textile loops, which gives the band a distinctive 3D look that is sure to turn some heads.

The new band is available in two sizes, 41mm and 45mm, for $49 each.
