Technology goes fashionable with the new Apple Watch Hermès

Fashion and technology are being combined more often these days. One year on from the initial Apple Watch release, Apple has announced the stylish Apple Watch Hermès. Apple partnered with French luxury brand, Hermès, to create a custom face, that uses Hermès' "traditional iconography”, and features chic leather straps.

The Apple Watch Hermès comes with a choice of three band straps. The Double Tour resembles Hermès stylish wrap style, while the Single Tour features a classic Hermès design. The straps come in a variety of colours including black, red, tan, and blue. The third style, known as the Cuff, is inspired by equestrian fixtures, resulting in a finely worked modern cuff style in Hermès’ signature leather.

The Apple Watch Hermès will be available from October 2015 and is exclusive in Australia to the Bondi and Sydney Apple Stores. Prices range from US$1,100 for a single wrap strap to US$1,500 for a watch with a full leather cuff.

Rose gold lovers rejoice! Along with the Apple Watch Hermès, the latest iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus has been unveiled and is available in the currently trending copper colour.

We wonder which of the elite in the fashion industry will be sporting this luxurious wrist addition.
