Apple releasing new Black Unity Apple Watch Sport Loop with matching Unity Mosaic watch face
Apple has announced that it will be releasing a new Black Unity Apple Watch Sport Loop to commemorate Black History Month, alongside a new matching watch face and iPhone wallpaper that will be available beginning next week.
In a press release shared on Wednesday, Apple touts that members of Apple’s Black creative community and allies came together to develop this year’s Black Unity Collection, which includes the Unity Mosaic watch face that incorporates geometric shapes in green, black, red, and yellow, and the yellow accent can be personalized with other colors.
The new Black Unity Apple Watch Sport Loop features the word “Unity” woven abstractly into the band using red, green, and black yarns that pay homage to the Pan-African flag, while a unique layering of yarns lends a sense of three-dimensionality to the letters. Additionally, the Unity Mosaic watch face incorporates geometric shapes in green, black, red, and yellow, and as the minutes change, each number uses pieces of other numbers to morph into new forms.
iPhone users can also show their support with the new Unity wallpaper for their Lock Screen.
The Black Unity Sport Loop is available for order on apple.com and in the Apple Store app today, and will be available in select Apple Store locations beginning January 24 for $49 (US). The Black Unity Sport Loop is available in 41mm and 45mm sizes, and is compatible with Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 4 or newer, and Apple Watch Ultra (45mm band only).
The Unity 2023 watch face will be available next week, and requires Apple Watch Series 4 or later running watchOS 9.3, and iPhone 8 or later and iPhone SE (2nd generation) or later running iOS 16.3. The new Unity iPhone wallpaper for the Lock Screen will be also be available next week and requires iPhone 8 or later running iOS 16.3.
