Apple to Live Stream March 9 (Apple Watch) Special Event

Apple this morning sent out invites to the press to indicate a March 9 special event, which most likely will focus on the Apple Watch. The company’s website has been updated its Live page to indicate the ‘Spring Forward’ event will be available live, similar to what we’ve seen from its previous special events.

Again, requirements to live stream the event will be (Windows users can try this workaround, as usual):

Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

Apple Watch will debut at $349 USD, most likely for the Sport models. All eyes are on Apple to see how much the stainless steel and 18K gold models will cost, and whether Canada will be part of the initial launch or not.

    Are we sure this will be about Apple Watch? We’ve already had a keynote on it … What about new iPads?

  • There are lots of Apple Watch details missing, this has to be about Apple Watch. We already know it’s shipping in April.

    Did apple actually confirm the sport watch was going to be the base model To be it make sense that the base model would be the one called simply watch. I don’t remember apple saying the sport model is the 349 edition

  • You’re right, clarified to note $349 would most likely be the Sport model, given its cheaper bands.

  • Corey Hoffarth

    I can see how 349 for sport would make sense but from what I’m reading Apple watch will be the base model and be able too choose from black or white rubber band and three of the other bands. I guess will give out next week though. Thanks Gary

  • The Apple Watch comes in stainless steel and sapphire, while the Sport models are aluminum and X-Ion glass. I’d assume the latter would be cheaper given their rubber bands vs the nicer ones in the Apple Watch. Yep, we’ll find out soon enough 🙂

    The iPad air 2 is only months old. Apple watch was slated for a spring launch with no firm details. This event is likely to announce launch date availability and pricing. The invitation also gives a hint spring ahead in reference to daylight savings time

    I though the same as you, but I think you have to see it like the iPhone 5C, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. iPhone 5C being the watch Sport, 5 being the Steel, and 5S being Edition (and being way more expensive too, but you see the point)

    You’re right, I forgot they changed the announcement pattern for the Pads.
