According to Apple, the design of the Sport Band is inspired by the strength and beauty of the LGBTQ+ community. The band showcases the original pride flag rainbow colours and includes black and brown to symbolize the Black and Latin communities. Light blue, pink, and white represent transgender and nonbinary individuals. The band incorporates a joyful array of geometric shapes on a white base, with each band being unique due to the variations in the layout of the shapes during the moulding process.

While Apple's initiative aims to celebrate diversity and inclusivity, it has sparked mixed reactions among netizens. Some individuals emphasize the importance of respecting and accepting all individuals, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity, in line with their religious beliefs. They advocate for embracing diversity and spreading love and acceptance.

On the other hand, some appreciate the design but express their dissatisfaction with the association of rainbow colours solely with the LGBTQ+ community. They perceive it as a marketing strategy for profit, questioning the need for companies to align themselves with specific identities.


The debate surrounding Apple's rainbow-coloured Pride Watch band highlights differing perspectives on the significance and representation of the rainbow symbol. While some view it as a symbol of peace and freedom, others argue that its association with the LGBTQ+ community may overshadow its broader meaning.
