 As Tim Cook said, “Apple Watch begins a new chapter in the way we relate to technology”. It introduces the all new Digital Crown, an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly without obstructing the display. The Watch features the new Force Touch technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, and an all new Taptic Engine, that delivers a gentle tap on your wrist whenever you receive a notification or message. The Apple Watch is available in two different sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm, and in three collections:

  • Apple Watch Sport features a lightweight anodized aluminum case in silver and space gray with a Retina display protected by strengthened Ion-X glass and matching high-performance fluoroelastomer Sport Band in five colors.
  • Apple Watch collection features highly polished stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases with a Retina display protected by sapphire crystal. The Apple Watch collection comes with a choice of three different leather straps, a stainless steel link bracelet and Milanese loop, and a black or white Sport Band.
  • Apple Watch Edition features cases specially crafted from custom rose or yellow 18-karat gold alloys developed to be twice as hard as standard gold, a Retina display protected by polished sapphire crystal and a choice of uniquely designed straps and bands with 18-karat gold clasps, buckles or pins.

Pricing & Availability:

Pre-orders for the Apple Watch will Begin on April 10 in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. The Watch will also be available for preview, try-on by appointment at Apple’s retail stores, and will hit the shelves on April 24.

    This is a terrible product.

    The Verge summed it up well:

    “Apple is really running into the same problem as Pebble and Android Wear — sure, you can put apps on this thing, but you’ve got a bigger screen, a better battery, and faster processor in your pocket…

    So much of this is just: that thing you could do on your phone, you can do on your watch. I get that it’s nice to have a thing on your wrist sometimes, and not have to fumble around in your pockets. But am I going to want to spend $350+ for the privilege every couple years?”
