Apple AirTag Hermès
The AirTag is a sleek accessory that will help users keep track of and find their most important items. Using Apple's Find My app, you can simply attach the tag to a bag, keys, a wallet or anything really. You will then be able to use the Find My app on your iPhones to locate your item no matter where it is.
The Apple AirTag Hermès comes in sleek Barénia calfskin or Swift calfskin and you can even buy AirTag trackers engraved with the iconic Clou de Selle logo.
The key ring, bag charm, luggage tag and travel tag can be attached to your belongings, especially the ones that go missing all the time.
Apple AirTag Hermès will be available for order online from April 23, and available for sale from April 30.
New straps for Apple Watch Hermès
Apple and Hermès will also be releasing a new range of watch bands for the Apple Watch.
Named "Jumping" in reference to showjumping, the new single tour water-resistant band is also woven in the H vibration design and is available in five different colourways: Rouge de Coeur/Rouge H, Kraft/Rouge de Coeur, Orange/Rose Mexico, Bleu Saphir/Orange and Noir/Bleu Saphir. It can be paired with the 40 mm and 44 mm case sizes of the Apple Watch.
