Fusing fashion with technology, Apple has announced their collaboration with the designer brand on the new Hermès Apple Watch. The original or sport versions of the popular Apple watch can start in price anywhere from $350-800; but the new version created between the powerhouse companies – like everything in life, comes with a price! The Hermès Apple Watch comes in 3 different versions: the Single Tour ($1500), the Double Tour ($1700) and Cuff ($2050). These options all have a new Hermès watch face, but vary in the handmade leather watchstrap on width and amount of times it wraps around the wrist.
Following the announcement, consumers can now be a part of the innovative product’s experience while combining it with their love of fashion. However, buyers beware, there have been a lot of complaints about the short battery life of this version of the Apple watch. We suggest waiting until mid 2016 when it is rumored that the new model will be available. That is, unless you enjoy bringing your charger along with you everywhere you go!
