Apple has updated its iconic Apple Watch once again, with the Series 6 version that prides itself on having even more health and wellness capabilities for you and your family. The watch will now come with the groundbreaking blood oxygen feature to keep your levels in check, along with other nifty improvements in the form of the faster S6 System in Package (SiP) and always-on altimeter. The Apple Watch Series 6 will also come with the special family setup so that children who do not own an iPhone can stay easily connected with the family, with other noticeable features like sleep tracking and new workout types all equipped within the device.
And this time around, Apple has again teamed up with Hermès to create exclusive leather strap designs for the brand new Series 6 watches, all of which are now available for sale online, with delivery slated from 22 September 2020 onwards. But if you prefer the in-store experience to try the device in person, then you have to save the date for 18 September 2020, where the series will be rolling out across all boutiques in Singapore. Yes, you can even head to the swanky new #appleMBS, though you might have to wait a little in the queue due to ongoing safe distancing measures.
Now, back to the Hermès straps proper, you will find all-new options created for the stainless steel cases in Silver and Space Black, paired with single tour and double straps that are made available in a wide array of colours. The Attelage Single Tour welcomes bold and vibrant hues like Anémone (purple), Bambou (green) and Jaune Ambre (yellow), to name a few. As for the Attelage Double Tour, it will now come in a slimmer format that will look exceptionally well on the ladies, along with a refined case connection that pays homage to the brand’s equestrian heritage. The best part? All designs under the collaboration range feature the new Circulaire watch face, one that’s equipped with even more options and ‘complications’, offering a fresh and dynamic twist that’s even better than the ones before.
The Apple Watch Hermès Series 6 starts from SGD1749 for the Attelage Single Tour, but you have to know that the straps are all made from handcrafted leather, complete with the French luxury brand’s signature saddle stitching and elegant-looking buckle. That, plus the fact that they come in stainless steel (and not aluminium), all in all justifies the premium price it has above the standard options.
