Apple announced an exciting partnership last year with French fashion company Hermès for the Apple Watch. But while I was initially thrilled to see the new Watch bands options, I soon realized that you’d have to buy a brand new Watch to get them. However, Apple is ready to address that “issue” by releasing a brand new set of Watch bands: they’re all made by Hermès, they come in various colors, and they’re obviously more affordable than the full Hermès Watch package. They also might just be the hottest Apple Watch bands ever.

Starting April 19th, Apple Watch users will be able to buy new Hermès bands for their existing Watch models, including Double Tour, Single Tour and Cuff bands. These will come in new color options as well, including Fauve (brown), Feu (red), Blanc (white), Bleu Paon (green), and Blue Saphir (blue).

In total, there will be as many as seven color options for each Hermès band type.

Not all the color options will be available for both Watch sizes as some will be exclusive to 38mm (the Double Tour) or 42mm (the Cuff) models.

As notes by to A Blog to Watch, prices starts at $340 for the Hermès Single Tour, $490 for the Hermès Double Tour and $690 for the Hermès Cuff.

Apple a few weeks ago unveiled a variety of new Apple Watch bands, offering users even more ways to customize the look and feel of their smartwatches. Adding Hermès bands to the selection seems like the obvious next step for Apple, and existing Apple Watch users looking for premium bands will certainly appreciate them. We know at least one person who’s probably looking forward to them very much.
