  • Nomad has announced the Rugged AirTag Keychain.
  • The accessory makes Apple's AirTag completely waterproof and a great pet tag.

Nomad is bringing its rugged line to Apple's new AirTag.

Today, the company announced the Rugged AirTag Keychain. While the company already offers an AirTag accessory, the rugged version is designed for two things: to be completely waterproof and to be the perfect pet tag.

The company will offer the Rugged AirTag Keychain in two options. One will be IP67 waterproof, while the other will feature a speaker hole in the back.

Rugged AirTag Keychain is constructed with a TPU-overmolded polycarbonate shell providing the ultimate in AirTag protection and comes with two enclosure options; an IP67 waterproof back and a speaker-hole back.

Nomad says that the new AirTag accessory is both water and dustproof and will be available in Black and White colors.

While Apple says that AirTag is meant to track items rather than people, there is no doubt that tons of people will use the tracker as a pet tag. Nomad is jumping into this market as well with an optional feature for the Rugged AirTag Keychain.

Make it your own with custom text engraved on a stainless steel insert. Great for adding on your dog's collar or for putting your name and phone number on your keychain.

The custom engraving will cost customers an additional $20.

The Rugged AirTag Keychain will cost $40, but those who preorder will get a $10 discount and grab the new accessory for $30 instead. Nomad expects the first shipments to begin in the middle of August.

You can purchase the Rugged AirTag Keychain directly from Nomad.
