I couldn’t discover the bands on-line simply but, nevertheless it’s coming. Apple might be going to roll out the bands with the brand new variants on April 19.

Single tour bands in 38mm and 42mm are going to value $340. All double tour variants are going to be priced at $490. And eventually, the long-lasting brown leather-based Hermès Cuff band goes to value $690.

Apple can also be including new colours on April 19. Along with brown, gray, black, purple and blue, Hermès goes to supply inexperienced, white, orange and darkish blue bands (bleu paon, blanc, feu and bleu saphir).

Orange is the dominant colour in Hermès’ branding, so the corporate is lastly including orange to the lineup. The handcuff band goes to be out there solely in brown. Double tour bands are solely obtainable for the 38mm Apple Watch.
