The limited edition “Black Unity” Apple Watch Series 6 is available to order now from the Apple Store. In addition to the limited edition Apple Watch, Apple is launching a special Apple Watch “Black Unity” band that is also available from the Apple Store now.
The Apple Watch Series 6 “Black Unity” edition features all the same specifications as a regular Apple Watch Series 6, however, the text on the back crystal is slightly adjusted to include “BLACK UNITY” in the concentric circle of text. This text is laser etched into the crystal to truly make this watch a limited edition version.
The Apple Watch “Black Unity” Band features a mix of green, red, and black colours that have been inspired by the Pan-African flag. Red represents the blood that unites people of the African Diaspora and was shed for their liberation, black represents the people whose existence is affirmed by the flag, and green is for the vibrant natural wealth of Africa.
According to Apple, the Apple Watch “Black Unity” band is “made from individual pieces of coloured fluoroelastomer, which are assembled by hand and compression-molded into one.” Additionally, the words “TRUTH. POWER. SOLIDARITY.” are laser etched into the closure of the band.
The “Black Unity” Apple Watch Series 6 Limited Edition is available now from the Apple Store for $399 (United States – $399 for GPS, $499 for LTE+GPS) and will be available through February and not thereafter. The Apple Watch “Black Unity” band is also available from the Apple Store for $49 (US) and, unlike the Apple Watch Series 6, will be available throughout the year.
Lastly, both the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch “Black Unity” band will be available in the US and 38 other countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and more.
