Made from a custom high-performance fluoroelastomer, the Sport Band is durable and strong, yet surprisingly soft. The smooth, dense material drapes elegantly across your wrist and feels comfortable next to your skin. An innovative pin-and-tuck closure ensures a clean fit.
Let me start of off by saying that I absolutely love apples sport bands, they’re easily the most comfortable and easy to clean watch band I’ve ever had, I’ve used the black sport band for over 5 years and even got a new black band with me new silver SE, I’ve always wanted a red band so I bought one from best buy, but when I opened it the color looked anything BUT red even the outside of the box showed a nice red color but the band itself looks more like a coral or salmon color or even dark pink, not even close to red. I went into the Apple store and they didn’t have a red sport band on display but they had a red solo loop out that looked very nice, and the employee said that the sport band would be the exact same color but it’s not! Also the band itself had a very grippy texture that would stick to itself when trying to put it on, it was very difficult to put the pin through the notch, and the band was instantly picking up black marks from the box and the silver pin, this band was very different from the other 3 sport bands I own, I had to be certain I didn’t get a knockoff so I compared the back of box of my other sport band and they looked identical. And after all of Apple’s beautiful product red iPhones I have no idea where this color came from. So I did some research and apparently when Apple released the product red series 6 watch they changed the color of the product red sport band to compliment the red watch, but pair this red band with any other watch than red and it’s atrocious. This color is one of those colors that plays tricks on your mind, it’s hard to accurately show in pictures or online, and looks different when put against other colors, people would argue for 30 minutes over what color it is but they would never mention red. Red is my favorite color and I own a LOT of red, but red this is not, Apple should be ashamed to even put the product red logo on this product.
Sorry for the rant.
