Just like Apple’s slogan for today’s suggested reveal event, the Apple Watch Series 6 led the company’s announcements today. In addition to new features such as blood oxygen monitoring and a new processor – the Apple S6 – at the center of the watch, we are acquiring some additional ways to personalize our 6 Series smartwatches with new dials and bracelets.
Apple announced a handful of new watch faces today. Series 6 owners will be able to choose between a GMT display that shows multiple time zones, a “progressive count” clock face that functions as a stopwatch and allows monitoring laps and a professional chronograph clock face that includes a tachometer. If you thought Memoji would one day hit the faces of the Apple Watch, pat yourself on the back, because Apple announced it today too, in addition to a typographic face and a face with customizable stripes.
The new watch faces are cool because, of course, they will be the part of the Apple Watch that you are likely to see the most, but arguably the most exciting are the new bands that Apple unveiled for the Apple Watch Series 6 today. The main among the ads is a new band called Solo Loop, which is made of silicone and has no clasp or buckle. Instead, the Solo Loop is a unique piece and extends to fit your hand and your wrist.
If the regular Solo Loop is not your style, there will also be a woven Solo Loop that looks a little more sophisticated. Solo Loop will be available in seven different colors, and will also be accompanied by new Nike bands. There will also be two new Hermes bands for those who are not yet ready to drop the hook entirely.
Therefore, in addition to announcing new hardware within the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple has also unveiled a series of new dials and bracelets for the upcoming watch. It is also worth noting that application developers will soon be able to create clock face complications for their applications, but it looks like we will have to wait a little longer before they have a free rein to create their own entire dials.
