The Apple Watch Sport Loop band was woven from nylon thread to create a hook-and-loop closure. These bands were available for the 41 mm and 45 mm Apple Watch models, and were offered in sizes to fit 130–200 mm wrists (41 mm) and 145–220 mm wrists (45 mm). The bands also fit older Apple Watch sizes.
This Maize/White band used a two-stripe design first introduced in Fall 2021. One stripe was “Maize,” a shade of yellow-gold, and the other was cream-colored shade of off-white with edges in a shade of melon (pink-orange). The connector plastics were off-white, and the closure plastic was melon to match the thread color of the edges.
Apple described the Apple Watch Sport Loop band:
“Soft, breathable, and lightweight, the Sport Loop features a hook-and-loop fastener for quick and easy adjustment. The double-layer nylon weave has dense loops on the skin side that provide soft cushioning while allowing moisture to escape. On the reverse side, the attachment loops are securely anchored for superior durability.”
Despite its name, this band contains no “white”—only off-white. The difference between the off-white shade of the band can be seen in the photos here with the band paired with the Apple Watch Edition Series 2 in white ceramic.
