Conflicting reports of a new Apple Watch band is like ‘The Dress’ for nerds
Will you have to consider spending another $249 (₹16,000approx) for an Apple Watch accessory this March? There’s now mixed evidence of a Modern Buckle band in a stone color for the Space Gray Apple Watch,
Spotted at a ‘premium’ Apple retailer in France named iConcept Toulouse Esquirol, the new band appears to be stone with a handsome black buckle. Existing Modern Buckle bands retail for $249, so that’s the pricing we’d assume here as well.
Mac Rumors reported that the image is affected by the in-store lights, which make the pink band in the image appear stone-colored. This is the white dress/blue dress argument Apple fans have been waiting for (and the dress is blue, don’t even start with me).
As we head into March — when Apple is reportedly holding an event to announce new Apple Watch accessories along with an iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 — we’ll have our proof. For now, just go ahead and earmark a few hundred bucks for a new accessory just to be safe.
