Apple Watch gains (PRODUCT)RED Sport Loop band
Apple on Wednesday quietly released a (PRODUCT)RED color option for the Apple Watch Sport Loop, part of the proceeds from which will go to the Global Fund's efforts to combat HIV/AIDS.
The new Sport Loop is available in 40- and 44-millimeter sizes, though these should also fit 38- and 42-millimeter Watches respectively. The accessory costs $49 in either format.
Apple has sometimes been criticized for keeping the RED brand out of products that would make a meaningful contribution to the charity. Most of its RED-linked products are low-cost items like iPhone and iPad cases, the exception being the iPhone XR, which is priced anywhere between $749 and $899.
