Nomad Announces ‘Rugged Keychain’ for AirTag, Includes Add-On Engraving Option for Pet ID Tags

Nomad today revealed a new accessory for Apples AirTag, called the Rugged Keychain, which begins shipping in August and costs $29.95 to pre-order ($39.95 regular). Comparable to other keychain accessories, Nomads Rugged Keychain protects the AirTag in a polycarbonate shell that can be attached to keys, bags, and– in Nomads recommendations– pet collars.
The Rugged Keychain includes 2 enclosure alternatives: an IP67 waterproof back and a speaker-hole back. Wanderer is also including an optional add-on function that lets you inscribe your pets name and your contact number onto a stainless steel insert, turning the AirTag and Rugged Keychain into a Pet ID tag.
While an AirTag can be utilized to track a pet, Apple VP of worldwide iPhone product marketing, Kaiann Drance, has advised users that the AirTag was developed to find inanimate items and not kids or family pets. When inquired about this, Drance stated, “If people do that, they just need to ensure that their moving animal enters range of a device in the Find My network” so its area can be tracked.
Wanderer currently sells a couple of AirTag accessories, including a Leather Loop and Leather Keychain at $19.95 and $29.95 respectively. You can likewise purchase a Glasses Strap for AirTag on Nomad for $29.95, which connects to any set of sunglasses or glasses.
If youre interested in the brand-new Rugged Keychain, you can pre-order the accessory today in White or black on Nomads website for $29.95. Wanderer will begin delivering the Rugged Keychain to consumers in August.
