Braided Solo Loop 2021 Mock-Ups ➝


As delightful as the first batch of 2020 Braided Solo Loops were, I couldn’t help imagining what changes 2021 could have in store for them, and first on my wish-list was to see the bands refreshed with multiple braided colour options. In a desperate effort to keep my brain from leaking out during a recent Zoom call, I had the chance to begin mocking up potential redesigns for the Braided Solo Loops.

While the Woven Nylon Band is still my favorite Apple Watch band type of all time, the Braided Solo Loop is a close second. And it has the advantage of still being sold by Apple.

But the Braided Solo Loop is lacking in the “fun” department when compared to the Woven Nylon Band. It only comes in solid colors and those colors are pretty limited.

These mock-ups by BasicAppleGuy depict what could be coming in the future. Or at least what I hope to see. If Apple releases multicolor Braided Solo Loops, I expect I’d start collecting them like I did the Woven Nylon Bands.

Apple Braided Solo Loop ➝

I was a huge fan of the Woven Nylon band and started hoarding them after they were discontinued a couple years ago — I have eight of them now. No other Watch band was nearly as comfortable. Every single one of them sat too tight on my wrist, wore a bit too warm, or had some other characteristic that irritated me.

The Braided Solo Loop is near perfect, though. There are enough sizes available to get just the right fit and the material seems to keep my wrist from feeling too warm and sweaty — either because of the texture or the nature of the material itself.

I wish they were available at a lower price, but at the very least, I’m glad Apple is making a Watch band that I enjoy wearing again. I just hope they continue to make them for longer than they made the Woven Nylon Band.
