Just-released Apple Watch Ocean Band and Alpine Loop straps hit $89 with rare discounts


After seeing some of its in-house Sport Bands go on sale for all-time low prices, Amazon is now marking down Apple’s all-new Apple Watch Ocean Bands. Available in two different styles, today’s price cuts drop from the usual $99 going rate for the very first time to $89 shipped. That’s a $10 discount that’s as rare as they come for the latest from Apple. Designed for Apple Watch Ultra, the new Ocean Band is also compatible with both 44 and 45mm styles of Apple Watch and arrives with a unique rubber form-factor that’s a bit more rugged than other options in the official stable. Comprised of high performance elastomer with a molded design that can stretch and bend thanks to a flexible tubular design, there’s also a titanium buckle to round out this premium strap.

Another one of the latest straps from Apple is also on sale, with Amazon marking down the Apple Watch Alpine Loop bands for only the second time. Also arriving at $89 in two different styles, these trade in the rubberized builds above for fabric designs that are down from the usual $99 going rate to mark some of the best prices ever.

Sporting a unique rugged design that weaves together two layers of woven fabric, the Alpine Loop is designed for Apple Watch Ultra but also works with the larger of Apple’s standard 44 and 45mm wearables. The stitch-free look uses high-strength yarn to deliver on the unique top loop look with a corrosion-resistant titanium G-hook that slides into place for securing to your wrist. Head below for more.
