New Apple Watch bands could be coming in March with watchOS 2.2

Apple is reportedly launching a new lineup of bands this March for the Apple Watch in time for the release of watchOS 2.2.

In a report from 9to5Mac, sources claim that not only will new straps be available to accessorize the Apple Watch, but will also include styles made from entirely new materials from third-party partners.

The report also mentions that Apple will formally debut the latest watch OS update, which includes new features such as syncing multiple iPhones and added Nearby search functionality to the Maps app.

The report also claims that Apple will announce a second-generation Apple Watch later this year, though 9to5Mac’s sources believe a brand new wearable won’t ship until the fall at the earliest.

As iOS 9.3 approaches, more details about the future of the Apple Watch and watch OS are likely to develop. In the meantime, rumors looming of an Apple press event this March make it look like the wait won’t be much longer.
