From time to time Apple refreshes the bands that are offered with the Apple Watch. Now if you were thinking of getting a new band for your Apple Watch, you might want to take note that it seems that Apple has discontinued the Modern Buckle for the Apple Watch, meaning that you won’t be able to get your hands on it anymore.

It is possible that the Modern Buckle could still be available via retailers, but the fact that it has been discontinued means that once inventory runs out, Apple will no longer be restocking it, so now’s probably the best time to go and look for it. That being said, we expect that Apple will most likely launch a replacement soon so we’ll just have to wait and see.

However if you’re after a Apple Watch band with a similar design, you could always turn to third-party bands as there are plenty of options to choose from. Also given that the Modern Buckle was only offered in the 38mm size, third-party bands are your best bet if you wanted a similar design but for the 42mm model.

Apple is expected to announce a new Apple Watch later this year, possibly alongside its new iPhones and we wouldn’t be surprised if there were new bands to choose from as well.
