Nomad today announced a new accessory for Apple’s AirTag, called the Sturdy keyring, which starts shipping in August and costs $ 29.95 for pre-order ($ 39.95 regular). Similar to other keychain accessories, Nomad’s sturdy keychain protects the AirTag in a polycarbonate shell that can be attached to keys, bags and – as Nomad advises – pet collars .
The rugged key fob includes two housing options: an IP67 waterproof back and a speaker hole back. Nomad also includes a optional additional function which allows you to engrave your pet’s name and phone number on a stainless steel insert, transforming the AirTag and Rugged Keychain into a pet ID tag.
While an AirTag can be used to track a pet, Apple vice president of global iPhone product marketing Kaiann Drance reminded users that the AirTag was designed to find inanimate objects, not animals. companionship or children. Asked about it, Drance said: “If people are doing this, they just need to make sure that their moving pet is within range of a device on the ‘Find My’ network so that its location can be tracked. .
Nomadic already sells some AirTag accessories, including a leather buckle and a leather keychain at $ 19.95 and $ 29.95 respectively. You can also purchase an AirTag eyewear strap on Nomad for $ 29.95, which attaches to any pair of glasses or sunglasses.
If you are interested in the new sturdy keychain, you can pre-order the accessory today in black or white on the Nomad website for $ 29.95. Nomad will begin shipping the Rugged Keychain to customers in August.
