It’s finally time for Apple to unveil the first range of Apple Watches. People rushed Sydney’s Apple store to get a glimpse of the watch.
The Apple Watch is the first major product of Tim Cook, CEO of Apple. The company is expecting a demand that will wash out the supply, with the Apple Watch launch a great event for the company to be carried out in two parts.
For the time being, the product will be available for fitting only in the store. Customers can order the product online from April 24 and from Apple stores located in London, Paris and Tokyo, Reuters pointed out.
The price of the watch will start from $349 for the sport edition. The standard version will cost $549. The gold Apple Watch, made of 18-karat gold, can cost between $10,000 to $17,000.
The product is the most-awaited smartwatch by any company in history. Previously this week, the company provided new outfits to retail employees to sum up the grooming and training they were going through to sell the watch. The company wants people to perceive it as an effective fashion accessory; thus, it has redesigned their outlets to suit the scene.
Apple Watch reviews by experts are mostly positive, given the product’s look and style quotient as its upper hand. The fact that one can listen to music, check emails and make calls using iPhone connectivity is accepted quite well. The watch can also monitor the health of the user and help them exercise. However, the battery life is under scrutiny, and the slow-loading apps can also trigger some problems.
Different authorities have different expectations related to how many watches will be sold. While some expect it to be around 8 million, others expect it to be around 40 million. It’s now time to see how the actual showdown goes.
