Apple Watch (Product) RED Sport Band tipped for launch

Apple is going to launch a brand new red Apple Watch Sport Band for its fledgling wearable, apparently.

According to a new source, the company is gearing up to unveil the (Product) RED strap at today’s launch event.

The strap will supposedly – and unsurprisingly – be in association with the Product (RED) charity.

It’s an organisation that Apple has had a long history with, having already raised millions of dollars for the charity through sales of red iPods and accessories.

An image of the new strap’s boxing was posted to Twitter by technology writer Larry Greenberg.

It appears to be typical Apple retail packaging, and has the Apple Watch stamp in the top left corner.

The band in question is designed to fit the 42mm Apple Watch, which is the larger of the two size variants.

It’s likely that Apple will also unveil a 38mm version too.

Apple currently only retails Apple Watch Sport straps in white, black, green, blue, and pink colour options.

If the strap is being produced in partnership (Product) RED, the charity will be accruing capital based on any retail sales Apple makes.

Otherwise, it’s expected that Apple Watch news will be relatively light at today’s launch event.

Instead, Apple is tipped to focus on the long-rumoured iPhone 6S, a revamped Apple TV set top box, and a 12-inch iPad Pro.

Of course, we don’t have any official details from Apple just yet, so it’s all rumour and speculation for now.
