Apple today announced a refreshed lineup of bands for the Apple Watch for spring of 2018. The new bands coincide with the release of the Nike Sport Loop that will, for the first time, be sold separately from the special edition Apple Watch Nike+.

In Apple’s new lineup, the company is including the Sport Band in Denim Blue, Lemonade, and Red Raspberry; Woven Nylon in Black Stripe, Blue Stripe, Gray Stripe, and Pink Stripe; Sport Loop in Flash Light, Hot Pink, Marine Green, and Tahoe Blue; and Classic Buckel in Spring Yellow, Electric Blue, and Soft Pink. The Nike Sport band is also seeing an update to match Nike’s lineup of shoes, arriving in Barely Rose/Pearl Pink, Black/White, and Cargo Khaki/Black. The Nike Sport Loop is arriving in Black/Pure Platinum, Bright Crimson/Black, Cargo Khaki, Midnight Fog, and Pearl Pink. Finally, both Hermès bands (Double Tour and Single Tour) now come in Indigo and Blanc.

For pricing, Apple says the Sport and Nylon bands will cost $49 and $149, respectively. The new Nike Sport bands will be priced similarly and run for $49. Meanwhile, the Hermès bands will cost $439 and $489, respectively. They’ll all launch later this month.
