Apple has announced that it will be releasing a new Black Unity Apple Watch Sport Loop in commemoration of Black History Month.
The new collection, which was developed by members of Apple’s Black creative community and allies, includes a matching watch face and iPhone wallpaper that will be available beginning next week.
The Black Unity Apple Watch Sport Loop features the word “Unity” woven abstractly into the band using red, green, and black yarns that pay homage to the Pan-African flag.
The unique layering of yarns lends a sense of three-dimensionality to the letters, making it a striking and unique addition to the Apple Watch.
In addition to the new Sport Loop, the Unity Mosaic watch face incorporates geometric shapes in green, black, red, and yellow. As the minutes change, each number uses pieces of other numbers to morph into new forms, making for an interesting and dynamic watch face.
iPhone users can also show their support for the Black Unity Collection by downloading the new Unity wallpaper for their Lock Screen. The wallpaper, which is available next week, requires iPhone 8 or later running iOS 16.3.
The Black Unity Sport Loop is available for order on apple.com and in the Apple Store app today and will be available in select Apple Store locations beginning January 24 for $49.
The Black Unity Sport Loop is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes, and is compatible with Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 4 or newer, and Apple Watch Ultra (45mm band only).
