Apple Reportedly Building Apple Watch Demo Area at Yerba Buena Center [PICS]

According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple is building a demo area for the Apple Watch beside the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

The tented space, shown in the above image, will likely serve as a demo area for Apple’s upcoming “Spring Forward” media event scheduled for March 9. According to the tipster who submitted the photos, there are security guards wearing “Apple Security” shirts monitoring the construction site, which all but confirms the tented area belongs to Apple.

Apple is expected to release the Apple Watch in the United States in early April. The device will start at $349 and will come in three models, including a standard model, sports model, and a luxury 18-karat gold Watch Edition.

The media event will likely include specifics on the device’s battery life, cost, and a precise release date. The company has announced that they will be live streaming the media event on March 9.
