Good news for Best Buy shoppers, the national retailer will be offering the Apple Watch to its customers as early as August.
In fact, on August 7, Best Buy expects the Apple Watch to arrive all over more than 100 of its stores. At the same time, the said watch will also be offered on its shopping website BestBuy.com.
Meanwhile, Best Buy also promises that another 200 of its stores will be able to offer the Apple Watch just in time for holiday shopping.
First national retailer of Apple Watch
Best Buy Senior Category Officer Jason Bonfig is more than thrilled that the company will be first national retailer to sell the Apple Watch, aside from the Apple Stores.
Bonfig said, ” The Apple Watch is a big addition to our stores and website, and we know our customers want it.” Moreover, he added, ” We are excited to bring the Apple Watch to more consumers, especially with the holidays coming up.”
Launched in September 2014, the Apple Watch is a smart watch that allows users to send and receive messages as well as answer calls from the iPhone.
Moreover, the Apple Watch comes with a Digital Touch that allows users to send sketches taps or even their heartbeat to their family and friends. In addition, the app also comes with a series of health and fitness apps that can help people achieve a healthier lifestyle.
As Apple’s Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook explained, “Apple introduced the world to several category-defining products, the Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad. And once again Apple is poised to captivate the world with a revolutionary product that can enrich people’s lives. It’s the most personal product we’ve ever made.”
The Apple Watch was released with three collections – the Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition.
Meanwhile, according to Apple’s Senior Vice President of Design Jony Ive, ” With Apple Watch, we’ve developed multiple technologies and an entirely new user interface specifically for a device that’s designed to be worn. It blurs the boundary between physical object and user interface. We’ve created an entire range of products that enable unparalleled personalization.”
There will be 16 Apple Watch models that will be sold in stores and online at Best Buy. They include the Apple Sport and Apple Watch models in both 38mm and 42mm sizes.
Moreover, Best Buy customers will also be able to customize their Apple Watch experience with the help of almost 50 accessories that will also be sold at Best Buy, including screen shields, stands, chargers and watch bands.
