Best Buy USA is the first major retailer to land the Apple Watch, as sales will begin on August 7. Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch models will be available at the electronics retail giant, according to a statement the company provided to iMore:
“Customers love Apple Watch, and we are thrilled to begin offering it at Best Buy locations across the U.S. starting August 7,” an Apple spokesperson told iMore. “More than 300 Best Buy stores will carry Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport models in time for the holiday shopping season.”
Best Buy online will sell Apple Watch, with 100 retail stores to start sales on August 7, with 200 additional locations to be added by the holiday season.
“The Apple Watch is an important addition to an emerging product category, and we know our customers want it,” said Jason Bonfig, senior category officer at Best Buy. “We are excited to bring Apple Watch to more consumers, especially with the holidays coming up.”
Sixteen Apple Watch models will be available in 38mm and 42mm sizes, along with “nearly 50 accessories,” such as watch bands, screen protectors, stands, chargers and more.
While there are Best Buy locations in Canada, there is no word whether we will see stores here carrying the Apple Watch anytime soon.
