Apple held its WWDC event earlier this week on Monday and when the brand holds that event, Hermès usually releases new Apple Watch bands. The brand, however, didn’t release any new Apple Watch bands this season and Apple only released 3 new bands.
Hermès usually releases about 3 new bands and updates the colors of some old ones every season after Apple’s WWDC event in June and the brand’s iPhone event in September. The new bands are then available for purchase online at Apple.com and Hermes.com and at select Apple stores and Hermès boutiques. The brand, however, didn’t do that this season.
Apple only released 3 new sport bands this season where the brand usually releases a lot. The brand usually releases new colors for the sport bands as well as the leather bands, nylon bands, and sometimes the Nike bands.
The Apple Watch Hermès isn’t very popular, though. The watch was a little popular when it came out and some fashion news publication wrote about it as well as when it got new colors for spring a couple of years ago and new colors for fall. Many fashion people don’t wear an Apple Watch and don’t even consider the Apple Watch a fashionable product.
The Apple Watch Sport is also the most popular of the Apple Watches. So, it’s not much of a surprise that Apple only released new colors for the sport bands. The Apple Watch is becoming more popular but I’ve only seen people wear the Apple Watch Sport.
Also, Hermès did release new bands in March. The brand usually at least releases new colors for summer, though. Coach releases new Apple Watch bands every season and those bands sell out quickly. The Hermès bands are more expensive, though. So, that might also be why they aren’t as popular as other Apple Watch bands.
Apple’s leather bands are a lot cheaper as well if you want a leather band and you can get leather bands for even cheaper on websites like eBay.
Regardless, new band colors would’ve been good. The brand has many colors and leathers for its handbags and accessories so it could’ve at least released a couple of new colors. The bands aren’t that popular, though. I don’t think the brand would make products people aren’t buying.
