Luxury brand Coach has been rumoured to be launching a new set of Apple Watch bands, but not until this fall, according to a report from Haute Écriture’s David Boglin de Bautista from earlier last month. Now he is back, reporting that Coach will launch Apple Watch bands as early as June 12.
Bautista has knowledge of three Apple Watch band styles that were expected to hit the stores today, June 6, but it appears that the launch was postponed to next week. The three styles to match Coach handbags are Leather Strap with Charms, the Wild Beast Camo model, and the Tea Rose Appliqué. Each will be available in three different colours, making nine bands in total.
The bands will retail for USD150, but the available sizes are yet unknown. What seems to be certain is that the Leather Strap with Charms will be available in Black, Chalk (white), and Saddle (brown); the Wild Beast Camo band in Denim (blue), Saddle, and Military Green; and the Tea Rose Appliqué band in Black, Tawny (orange), and Chalk, Bautista writes.
The Watch bands will be available in only limited quantity in select stores in California, Nevada, and New York. While they won’t be available online at launch, there is a possibility of purchasing them later from the online store.
