Apple Watch will see its highly-anticipated launch in stores on April 24th and will see a price tag of $349 to start on the most-basic version of Apple’s first entrance into the wearable space.
Apple Watch is finally here, and now customers will have a choice to make. They’ve seen the device in action at the live event that the company held today, and they know what the price point of Apple’s first new piece of technology in five years – but will it be enough to propel them into the store? If what Apple has done to date, and how the company has done to date with regards to selling their seemingly overpriced gadgets – this item should be no different.
It’s packed with some of the best technology that is out there, and for all intents and purposes it seems to be one of the most-promising wearable pieces of technology on the market that will hit stores this year. That being said, for $349 the Apple Watch Sport can be yours. If that ‘Sport’ edition of the Apple Watch isn’t good enough, then users can jump at the Apple Watch – that features a stainless steel body for $549. Interestingly, these watches can be customized, but that too will cost a little extra. The addition of certain bands will push the asking price to around $1,049 and $1,099.
Then the company has also introduced the most elaborate version of the Apple Watch that anyone has seen in the 14K gold version that will retail for as much as $10,000. While that might seem a bit steep for a piece of technology that hasn’t really proven itself yet on the open market. Then again, Apple probably is not expecting to sell too many 14K versions of the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch will go on sale on April 24th with preorders beginning on April 10th. Apple also confirmed the reports that the launch would be a global one, as well, by pointing out officially that the Apple Watch would go on sale in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Australia, France, Japan, Hong Kong, and Germany – that will surely be a good thing in terms of driving those sales as Apple Watch looks to make a major splash in the market.
