Apple Watch Series 8: Here are all the colors and official band options
Although Apple has now added a new ‘Ultra’ model to its Apple Watch lineup, the Apple Watch Series 8 will likely remain the top choice for most buyers this year. That’s because the new Ultra variant is a bit overkill for the average Joe and costs as much as the new iPhone 14. On the other hand, the Apple Watch Series 8 starts at $399 for the GPS model and $499 for the cellular model, which is a reasonable price for a premium smartwatch of its caliber. If you’re considering picking up a new Apple Watch Series 8 and are wondering which color to go with, here are all your options.
Apple Watch Series 8: Case materials and Colors
The Apple Watch Series 8 comes in a couple of fun colors with two case material options:
- Stainless Steel
The more affordable Aluminum variant is available in four colorways:
- Product Red
The Midnight, Starlight, and Product Red color options are just the same as the ones Apple offered with the aluminum Apple Watch Series 7. The Silver variant is the only new addition, and it has a polished aluminum look.
The Stainless Steel variant of the Apple Watch Series 8 offers a more premium finish, and it’s also available in four colorways:
- Space Black
While the Gold, Graphite, and Silver models come with various band options, the Space Black model is only available with the Hermès leather straps. So, you’ll have to shell out quite a bit if you want to get the Space Black model.
Apple Watch Series 8: Band options
Speaking of band options, Apple offers the aluminum Apple Watch Series 8 with six different bands — Solo Loop, Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, Nike Sport Band, Sport Loop, and Nike Sport Loop. Most of these bands come in a variety of color options, allowing you to completely personalize your new Apple Watch.
The stainless steel model gets five band options — Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, Sport Loop, Leather, and Stainless Steel. All these bands come in various color options, so you get a wide variety to choose from. Additionally, the Leather bands for the stainless steel model are available in two different variants, including Leather Link and Modern Buckle.
The premium Apple Watch Hermès is available with a couple of exclusive band options in nylon and leather. These include the nylon Jumping Single Tour band in two color options and six leather straps in a variety of color options. Check out the section below for more details.
