Apple fans can get the Pride Edition Loop Sport in two sizes, with 41mm and 45mm straps available to buy.

The band features the colours of the Progress Pride flag – including the black and brown stripes and the pink, blue and white stripes – alongside the word “Pride” woven on it.

Plus the cursive lettering of “Pride” is a throwback to the original 1984 Macintosh. Users were greeted with a “Hello” text on the groundbreaking computer.

The text on the band has a three-dimensional look, thanks to a new technique in which several layers of the nylon-woven textile loops were removed.
