Well, the secret is out. Apple reveals new details on the Apple Watch on its Monday "Spring Forward". And here comes the most expensive Apple Watch you can buy.
The Apple Watch starts at $349, but ends at $17,000. Yes, that's a 17 and then three zeroes. Do you want to pay $17,000 for it?
OK, you don't have to pay that much. The Apple Watch comes in two sizes and three styles.
The Apple Watch Sport, which has a space grey or silver anodized aluminum case, will start at $349 for the smaller 38mm version and $399 for the 42mm model. The Apple Watch version ranges from $549 to $1,049 for the 38mm version and from $599 to $1,099 for the 42mm version. The price you pay will largely depend on the band you choose. Then, there's the Apple Watch Edition, which comes with an 18-karat gold case and polished sapphire crystal, begins at $10,000 and top out at $17,000.
The price may become the hottest talking points from any Apple Watch conversation. It's expensive!!! And here comes another question: What this "Watch" can really do?
I'm not even sure we can call it a watch. Okay, it goes on the wrist, and it can tell the time, but Apple said that the Apple watch allows you to receive calls, communicate by tapping on the interface, and features a variety of apps promoting and measuring the wearer's health. In addition, Apple announced it is offering researchers new development tools, called ResearchKit, to help medical researchers design apps for clinical trials.
Is it familiar? Yes, many people have found that those are what iPhone can do. I have an iPhone, why I should I but Apple Watch?
Apple may have answered this question. Do you know that in order to work, the Apple Watch needs to be paired with an iPhone?
Good or bad, the Apple Watch will be available for pre-order on April 10 and in stores on April 24 in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and the U.K. and U.S.
