Apple Watch will go on sale in early March this year as the company reportedly schedules training for Apple Store employees.
Apple Watch may not be coming this Valentine’s Day, as analysts predicted in recent weeks but may see the day of light a couple of weeks later. If the sources of 9to5Mac are to be believed, the most-anticipated smartwatch, Apple Watch is likely to go on sale in March 2015.
The Watch was showcased during the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus launch in September, and the pricing details are still a top secret except for the base model for $349. During the event, the Cupertino just said that the Watch would be available in “early 2015.” Now, Apple has reportedly scheduled training sessions for their retail outlets’ employees, starting February 9th. The first lot of devices is expected in the first week of March with small differences from region to region as the company does for iPhones.
According to 9to5Mac, the company is inviting one or two employees from many Apple Stores and will be sent to either Cupertino, California or Austin, Texas to learn fundamental steps of the smartwatch so as to respond most customers’ questions in stores.
Meanwhile, third-party developers are continuing to put their efforts tirelessly to develop new apps for the Apple Watch, thanks to already popular WatchKit and iOS 8.2 beta. The final version of the new mobile OS is likely to be released to the public a few days before the arrival of the timepiece. For a quick reminder, there are three versions of the Apple Watch i.e. standard, sport, and edition and an array of wristbands. Apple Watch will be priced at $349 for the metal and glass sport model. While experts predict stainless steel and sapphire crystal standard model will be priced at $500, and gold model will be as expensive as gold ornaments.
