The leaker known as StellaFudge has shared numerous images of a silicone Apple Watch band that was never released by Apple. As opposed to the conventional pin system, this band features a flexible steel fastening with a clickable system. The model shown in the photos is red, but there is likewise a white version apparently made by Apple.

Additionally, Apple is claimed to have actually developed leather models of this watch band in Saddle Brown, Red, and Ultraviolet.

“The clasp is attached with a pin bar to secure it to one end. The real securing device is very simple and has a very enjoyable click. It adjusts similarly to a sporting activity band however offers better wrist assistance,” StellaFudge clarified in a blog post on X.

Although it’s unclear why Apple made a decision to ditch this watch band, the leaker guesses that it may be due to the “annoying” modification procedure and the raised difficulty in manufacturing.
In the past, dripped Apple prototypes have revealed various other ditched concepts, such as a darker Apple Watch Ultra with a black ceramic back. Several of these prototypes influence the design of future products, while others are shelved permanently. For example, the FCC revealed photos of a gold iPhone X, yet Apple determined to get that color for the iPhone XS.

Reports recommend that Apple will certainly announce a redesigned “Apple Watch X” later this year, potentially bringing redesigned watch bands as well.
