Apple released two new Apple Watch Pride bands for 2020 Pride today.

It's become an annual tradition for Apple to debut a new Pride band for Apple Watch and an accompanying watch face, but this is the first time there have been two new options launching. The website says there will be more new watch faces with more pastel colour palette and a new Rainbow option for the Gradient.

Apple's latest watchOS just dropped - watchOS 6.2.5 - which can be downloaded now for the Apple Watch Series 1 and up.

The new watchOS 6.2.5 software brings some new features to the Apple Watch, it also comes with some bug fixes and performance improvements.

With most Pride celebrations around the world being rescheduled, shrunk or canceled, Apple is reminding you that it's still got rainbow-themed things, however you end up partying.

Every Apple Watch on sale today at Woot is expected to have a moderate level of wear and tear, which could include scratches, dents, and dings.

Both themes and sizes (40mm and 44mm) are priced at $49 and are available to buy from Apple.com now. Meanwhile, a second new band - the Apple Watch Nike Sport Band - has also been reimagined for Pride.
