Coach ships four new Apple Watch bands for men & women

Luxury brand Coach has released several new Apple Watch bands for the fall season, looking to draw in fans of Apple's wrist-worn computer as a fashion item.




All-new bands include the Strap with Camo Print in Surplus and the Strap with Sharky in Beechwood. Updated colors include the Strap with Tea Rose in Heather Grey, and the Strap with Prints in Black Multi or Melon.

The Camo Print and Sharky bands are 42-millimeter designs intended for both men and women, but the Tea Rose and Prints options are aimed only at women, and sold in a 38-millimeter format. Most of the bands cost $150, except for the Tea Rose, which is $175.




Those prices are similar to the $149 Apple charges for its main leather bands, the Classic Buckle and Leather Loop.

    Jeez... three out of those four straps show how to ruin the look of an elegant and beautifully designed watch!

    I like the one with the roses, ruin is the eye of the beholder in fashion.

    Horrendous.

    As an aside, haven't they renamed themselves Tapestry or some such thing?

    They look cheap with high price tag.

    But I would wear the flower one just to piss people off about my life choice.

    It's astounding how much a simple leather band can cost. Compare the cost of materials and labor to make one vs. an entire Apple Watch (minus the band of course). There must be a significant markup on them. I think I'm in the wrong business...

    It helps if you have a brand name first, though.... ;-)

    I welcome these companies coming together to offer Apple Watch bands. Would like to see efforts from more brands.

    yes they have some weird offerings. What’s with the shark? Must be a Coach thing I don’t understand.
