What you need to know

  • Apple will include a free Sport Band with a purchase of a Apple Watch Series 5 in titanium or ceramic.
  • A Sport Band on its own costs $49.
  • If you purchase the Series 5 in aluminum or stainless steel Apple doesn't include a free band.

If you purchase an Apple Watch Series 5 in titanium (opens in new tab) or ceramic (opens in new tab), Apple will give you an extra Sport Band. The watch band will come in addition to whichever band you decide upon at purchase.

If you get a titanium Series 5 with a khaki Sport Loop, for example, Apple will throw in a light gray Sport Band. What's cool is Apple will seemingly color-match the band you buy with the Series 5.

When you buy an Apple Watch Series 5 in titanium or ceramic, you also get a 1m magnetic charging cable and 5W USB power adapter.

Unfortunately, the Apple Watch Series 5 in aluminum and stainless steel do not come with an extra Sport Band. You can, however, get a Sport Band on its own for $49 (opens in new tab).

Announced on Tuesday, the Apple Watch Series 5 is a relatively modest upgrade over last year's model, offering an always-on display and compass. The wearable also offers 32GB of built-in storage, which is double the 16GB offered in the Apple Watch Series 4.
