How Much Does the Apple Watch Cost?
For those of you that worship everything Apple, the announcement of the Apple watch probably has you pretty excited. You already have an iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad, and now there's a new device to complete your set. The Apple Watch is the next generation of the wristwatch which will come with apps just like your other devices. I remember desperately wanting a calculator watch in grade school. Thankfully, my parents didn't get me one for Christmas that year, because those never really took off. These probably will. Many people already use their phone as their main source to check the time, but will that transfer over to using a smartwatch? How much will the Apple watch cost?
Much like the iPhone, Apple will be releasing different versions of the watch. Pricing has finally been released by Apple. The basic most affordable version will be called the Sport, made of plastic, and priced at $349-$399. It is available in fun colors like the iPhone 5C and oriented towards casual, active occasions as well as kids. It might be the most popular choice as people at ease into the idea of the smartwatch.
The Watch model is the next level up in quality and made of stainless steel. These will be more fashionable and geared towards the business professional and college kids who think they are all grown-up. The stainless steel Apple Watch will start at $549 for the 38mm version and $599 for the 42mm size, with prices ranging up to $1,049 and $1,099 depending on the band.
The premium version of the Apple Watch has been getting a lot of press lately as it is made of 18 karat gold, similar to the gold iPhone, and it's called the Edition model. I suppose it's aimed at people who have champagne wishes and caviar dreams. Price has been set at a staggering $10,000. DIY Hack: Buy a Sport version and paint it gold.
