We got a sneak preview at the Apple Watch back in September, when it popped up alongside the iPhone 6 as “one more thing”, but tonight at Spring Forward was the proper we’re-just-about-to-release-it Apple Watch launch.
All the questions have now been answered: How much will the Apple Watch cost? Where will it be released first? When will it be released? And how long will it last on a single charge? Full story below.
Starting with Apple Watch price, it depends on the model, strap and size, but the headline here is that the most expensive Apple Watch comes in at an astounding $10,000 plus.
Apple Watch price looks like this:
- Apple Watch Sport 38mm – $349 (£299)
- Apple Watch Sport 42mm – $399 (£339)
- Apple Watch 38mm – $549 – $1,049 (from £479...)
- Apple Watch 42mm – $599 – $1,099 (...to £949)
- Apple Watch Edition (18-karat gold) – from $10,000 (£8,000)
Interestingly, it won’t just be the US that sees the Apple Watch when it rolls out initially. There are actually nine countries in the first wave, namely Australia, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, China, the UK, France, the US and Germany.
Fancy it? Apple Watch pre-orders open on April 10, two weeks ahead of the Apple Watch release date of April 24.
In terms of Apple Watch features, one of the questions we really wanted answered tonight was: What about Apple Watch battery life? Well, it’ll last “all day” on a single charge, but more specifically it’ll need charged again after 18 hours, so you’re going to be taking this thing off before you go to bed.
