Apple Spotlights New Black Unity Braided Solo Loop and Unity Lights Apple Watch Face

Today, Apple unveiled the new special edition Black Unity Braided Solo Loop and downloadable Unity Lights watch face to celebrate Black History Month.

Both the new limited edition Apple Watch band and watch face are inspired by Afrofuturism. Apple said the new launch occurs with an aim to support organizations focused on advancing inclusion in science and technology for communities of color through its Racial Equity and Justice Initiative.

Designed by members and allies of the Black creative community at Apple to celebrate Black history and culture, the Apple Watch Black Unity Braided Solo Loop and matching Unity Lights watch face honors generations of Black people across the African diaspora. This design symbolizes a communal belief in the necessity for a more equitable world. The vibrant red and green colors of the Pan-African flag appear like speckled light across the black band.

A beautifully-created and colored Black Unity Braided Solo Loop is complemented by the new Unity Lights watch face, “which is designed using 2D ray tracing, a technology never before implemented for a watch face. Each pixel on the screen simulates the light and shadow falling across it and the movement of the clock hands simultaneously reveal and hide the light, changing dynamically throughout the day.”

The watch face can also be customized by displaying as a full-screen or circular dial, black and white option, tick marks, up to four complications, and a monogram.

Furthermore, iPhone, iPad, and Mac users can express their support for Black History Month by downloading and setting up Afrofuturism-inspired wallpapers available on Apple’s official website.

Apple’s Black Unity Braided Solo Loop is now available to purchase from the company’s online store, Apple Store app, and began available starting Tuesday, February 1 at $99 in the United States.

Moreover, the Cupertino company is also set to launch multiple new contests and features for Blach History Month in Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, Apple Fitness+, App Store, Apple Books, and more. Read the full press release on Apple Newsroom.
