This had been bugging me all night. I knew my math wasn't that bad, even as a journalist, however, it looked as if my 34 Apple Watch designs explainer was incorrect today.
There were suddenly 38 Apple Watch designs on the Cupertino company's official website. Did I miscalculate the total or was something else afoot?
This brought the total to 38, and with the help of the Wayback Machine, I was able to track down which ones were added since the original announcement.
Here are the new designs
New to the mid-range stainless steel Apple Watch collection are new black bands, with a Black Leather Loop for the larger 42mm watch size and Black Modern Buckle for the smaller 38mm watch size.
Previously, these straps were limited to colors of Bright Blue, Stone and Light Brown for the Leather Loop, and Midnight Blue, Soft Pink and Brown for the Modern Buckle.
Watch Edition, the premium 18-karat gold version of the Apple Watch, has more bracelet colors and designs too. It went from six to eight.
New to this expensive mix are a smaller 38mm yellow gold case with the Black Sport Band and an all-new 42mm yellow gold case with a Black Classic Buckle.
Yes, it turns out that these new leather and fluoroelastomer bands are all the in-demand black color that pretty much goes with anything, and all were easily missable if you weren't looking closely.
