Coach released new bands for the Apple Watch a couple of months ago. Much like Hermès did with their collection, the brand is releasing a few new bands and updating the colors of the original bands for fall.
According to a representative, Coach is releasing a new studded leather band that will come in “Ginger” (brown), black, and “Heather Grey”. There may also be a new band called the “Rexy Strap”, named after the brand’s T-Rex mascot, in black with a green charm.
The Leather Strap with Charms in black from the first collection had a Rexy charm on it, however, that charm was silver. The representative did say the Rexy Strap’s model number is different from the Leather Strap with Charms, though, indicating a new model.
A sales associate at a Coach boutique on Post Street in San Francisco, California, one of the stores that had the first bands in stock, also says there will be a new band for men. The new band is called the “Bleecker” and will come in “Saddle” (brown) and will only be available in 42mm.
A photo on Coach.com shows the new studded leather band (below) in Ginger with silver studs, black studs, and a pearl making a diamond shape. The photo also reads, “made exclusively for the Apple Watch, our new leather straps come amped up with a few of our favorite signature details.”
As for the new colors, the Tea Rose Appliqué Leather Strap will now come in purple and nude pink and the Leather Strap with Charms will come in red and black. The Wild Beast Camo Leather Strap doesn’t seem to be getting an update.
Both the studded leather band and Rexy Strap will cost $125 while the Bleecker band retails at $225. The Leather Strap with Charms will cost $125 and Tea Rose Appliqué Leather Strap will cost $150, the same as they did when they were first released.
Like before, sales associates and customer service representatives are giving different release dates.
The representative I first spoke to said the bands should be available by the end of this week and that some are already on back order. The sales associate at the boutique on Post Street, however, says the men’s band will be released on November 1st along with the other new bands and colors.
Another sales associate the boutique at North Park Center, another store who had the bands when they were first released, says that store is receiving a shipment with the bands today.
Employees don’t seem to know a specific date for when the bands will be available but customer service representatives can order the bands for you now as well as some sales associates.
Also, sales associates at three locations (listed below) have confirmed that they will be receiving bands.
