Apple might be pushing more of the fitness angle with its smartwatch these days, but it's still got a lot love for those stylish straps, and is set to launch a new special edition Apple Watch band with French fashion house Hermès.

The new band is named Médor and comes in either a 38mm Single Tour or a 42mm Double Tour. The new style is apparently inspired by dog collars, one of the first products that Hermès launched way back in the 1930s.

There will also be an exclusive Hermès watch face inspired by the Carrick font to give the watch that extra stylish feel.

If you're sold on a Hermès Apple Watch band, it's going to be up for grabs from 14 November from Apple and Hermès websites. The Single Tour Médor band costs $439 and the Double Tour band comes in at $589.

The Apple Watch Series 3 was our pick for Smartwatch of the Year at the 2017 Wareable Tech Awards beating the likes of the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon, Samsung Gear Sport, Fitbit Ionic and the LG Watch Sport to the big prize.

(Edit: A previous version of this article stated that it will be possible to buy the Apple Watch and new band together. Apple has confirmed that's not the case; it will just be sold separately.)
