Apple estimates that up to one-third of all Apple Watch users change the bands on a regular basis, so the company has just added a few extra choices for them. On the other hand, the Cupertino-based company also adjusted the price of its wearable to make it more attractive to potential buyers, so now the Apple Watch starts $50 USD lower.

During yesterday's iPhone SE & 9.7-inch iPad Pro launch event, Apple also announced that the new starting price of the Apple Watch is $299 USD. Unfortunately, they did not unveil any new smart wearable. However, a new woven nylon band arrived yesterday, next to new colors for the sport and leather bands, as well as the new space black Milanese Loop band that leaked online back in January. The new nylon band uses four layers and comes "with a comfortable, fabric-like feel in seven vibrant colors."

The woven nylon band has a price of $49 USD, the Milanese Loop starts at $149 USD. The new colors for the sport and leather bands do not change their prices - $49 USD and $149 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
